Alright my friends this is just a quick post today for some random things and to tell you that the pet series will be back next Friday.
There’s been so much going on over here. Our heat broke last weekend, which happened last winter too. This time it was the ignitor, last year the fan. Brrrrrrr it was cold in the house and expensive.
I have been trying to get random things done like organizing, cleaning, random paperwork, doctors visits, kids sports, skiing with girl friends and kids, diet cooking, trying to work out more often and finding someone for my taxes. Taxes stress me out so badly I can’t even tell you!!!! I want to apply for citizenship this year and have to make sure everything is perfect for my application. And just the thought of studding for the oral citizenship test makes me want to hyperventilate. I feel so stupid with my mommy brain sometimes.
And I procrastinate with little things like cleaning and styling my brass shelving unit. If you follow me on Instagram then you have seen it already how I kept rearranging everything. That’s the stuff I really enjoy doing though…taxes what? Let me clean my shelf, ok?!?!
“Moving stuff around!” 🙂 Say that with a German accent.
On Monday it’s vet time for Lilly cat and Monkey (if you are new here you can read more about Monkey HERE). Lilly’s thyroid issues are getting worse and she’s been throwing up more than usual and Monkey needs her shots and I’m also getting her microchip. That really makes it official doesn’t it. She’s ours and I’m registering her publicly, don’t want her to ever get lost. She’s really conquered everyone, finally my husband too who admires her skillful hunting. The bizarre thing is that she appears to bring me yucky presents when I’m really stressed out and upset. I call it “vole sushi” … and I’m usually gagging when she is so kind to bring me chopped up leftovers. It’s a learning curve to have a cat that can roam around and do her own thing.
This is how Monkey, Lucy, Lilly and Heidi (can you believe she will be 20 soon?) spend their days now. Especially when the heat wasn’t working and yes I couldn’t get myself to throw out the Norfolk pines from Christmas:
I took these pictures last night. Don’t you love how Lucy snuggles with her toys?
I wish every pet would have a warm spot to snuggle up to like this at night when it is this cold out, or well no I mean every day not just when it is this cold out.
I remember last year I would still try to catch Monkey on the front porch at night to bring her into the warm bathroom when it was this horribly cold out. She was still so scared though and it was a huge effort. I actually couldn’t sleep at night if she was still out there. I’ve become to love her so much just like the other ones.
That’s it for today my friends.
Have a great weekend.
