    Hi! My name is Karen, and I was just reading your blog and I live with a sneezing cat as well. I’ve tried everything I can think of. Would you mind telling me what worked for your baby? I’m goingoutofmy mind with this problem. The vet even did a respiratory panel ad found nothing. Please share and deep thanks!!!!

    1. Hi Karen, the antibiotic was Azithromycin and I now added a link to the blog post for some more info so you can check it out. It is crazy how nothing else helped before. She also always had dirty crusty eyes and ears. The antibiotic did give her diarrhea but I gave her FortiFlora Feline Probiotics to help battle that. Good luck and let me know if this helped your kitty too if you try it.

  2. First off so good to catch up with you. Absolutely understand about the worry and anxiety about your children. My sons are 28 and 31 and I still worry about them, and they are good kids too!! As mothers we will probably always worry about them. My oldest son lives in Finland which makes it worse for me.
    I think ceiling beams will look awesome in your bedroom so go for it. Life is short!!
    Looking forward to seeing and reading more about the cats. Take care!

    1. Oh wow Donna, yes Finland is quite far. Same for my parents and me. It’s so hard to be that far away and I worry about my parents too. I definitely have the beams on my to-do list and hope it will work out. Thanks for taking your time to read my blog and commenting 🙂

  3. Julia, thanks for the personal updates. I love to hear what’s new with you, your family and your precious kitties! It’s hard being a mom but it sounds like you’re doing a great job. All you can do is your best! You’ve got this 😻

    1. Thanks Ann, yes trying to do your best is all we can do. Thanks so much for reading and commenting.

    2. Hi!
      Love all your diy. Wanted to mention about the anxiety. I have found yoga nidra and it has been literally life changing for me and helped so much. There is a woman on YouTube and has tons of free sessions. Here name is Ally boothroyd, look it up. She is amazing and her voice is so soothing. She has helped me so much with sleep. Just thought I would mention. All your creativity and work is just beautiful ❤️

      1. Oh thanks, I will check her out. I’ve done “Yoga With Adriene” and I love her a lot too.

  4. I also think beams would look amazing! I hear you on the worry with new drivers, I have a 17 year old. It’s so hard to let go.
    Do your cats eat wet food? My cats normally only have dry (the wet just grosses me out too much and my current kitty has IBD so has to stick to her special food) but she is 13 and her teeth are perfect according to my vet who is a very well respected feline specialist and she has never recommended a single cleaning for her. My other cats had great teeth too and only one needed a cleaning and 1 extraction when he was 10. I’m thinking maybe the dry food makes the difference?

  5. Great to catch up on your life, Julia! We moms are always concerned about our kids and now I feel the same about my grandkids🥰

    Take care!

    1. Oh I can’t even imagine what I’ll do once I have grandkids. I’m definitely in no rush 😉

  6. Thank you for the lovely post and for sharing your talents with us despite the anxiety (which I totally, totally get by the way … is it bad we’re planning on just doing the whole driving thing with our kids a bit late, because anxiety on behalf of all parties involved?!). Kitties and crafts forever, amirite? Hugs to you.

    1. Yes, there is definitely anxiety on all parties involved here haha. She is getting driving lessons too since I can’t handle it. And hugs right back to you too!

  7. I love all of your creative ideas! I think beams would look amazing! Definitely go with the fake ones due to the weight factor. I think whatever color you decide on for your buffet will look great! I also have white cupboards and totally agree about the dirt! I love seeing all of your macrame ideas. You are doing a great job with your blog even if you don’t post as often as you would like to. For me I would rather read your blog which actually I enjoy reading rather than get one everyday about superficial stuff. Hang in there!

  8. Love the update.
    Your (gorgeous) daughter had sensory issues a few years ago (yes?,) Has that all been resolved?

  9. Hi Julia –

    I enjoyed your reading your update. 🙂 You look great!!!! Pat yourself on the back a few times for losing 17 pounds as losing weight is hard. :-). I think your bedroom would look great with faux wood beams!!!

    1. Thanks Diane! I definitely want to finally get my faux beams this year. Fingers crossed!
