Checking In

Current Mood:Amused emoticon Amused & Sleepy emoticon Sleepy

Just been working the last few days, although I hit the wall pretty hard yesterday.  I was in such an irritable mood that everything was annoying me.

Pretty much we have been doing our gym thing everyday, doing a few errands, gripe around the house since we can’t figure out what to eat since we are bored with everything, shower and then work.

Last night we did watch Into The Wild from netflixs.  It was interesting, but the guy may have been book smart to a point but no common sense.  If you want to have an adventure in Alaska, you research it, you take maps, compasses, and you learn how to prepare big game….what an moron for not doing that, he deserved his fate.

I spent a few hours on work today, but spent the evening playing around with the ideas that have been rolling around in my head for my family stuff.  I started getting these ideas a few weeks ago, been mulling them over wondering if it would work, but annoyingly, haven’t been able to get to them until tonight.  I think it will actually work.

Now I need to do the hard tedious part, organize my pictures from the last 1-2 yrs, resize them, gallery them up, ftp & post them.  It is so easy to lose control of them…..I have lost that…icks

When going through some of the pics I can see how big the kittens have gotten since Dec…wow.  They are big now.  I think Drew is going to be a big cat.  For the 1st time, we have all short hairs, that is strange, but it doesn’t cut down the amount of fur around the house……lol

Nothing having to chase Drew down to discipline him for shredding toilet paper and trying not to laugh.  We just can’t have him doing that.  We have never had a cat that shreds toilet paper and be so destructive all around once he is riled up.  Torn says that when I leave the room/house he starts to meow loudly and bits paper and stuff.  That is going to make traveling interesting.  We are going to come home to a destroyed house.

We finally got Reggie’s ashes back home.  I feel much better that we have him.

I’ve been still surfing the news to feed my information addiction.  Laughing at the GOP as the head of the RNC bows down to the real head of the GOP, Limbaugh.  I really hope that this destroys them, but knowing the dems, they will frack it up, they always do.

We are doing something different tomorrow.  For valentines I had gotten Torn a couple of certificates for massages and we are going to be cash them in.  I’m looking forward to that house of relaxation.

Nothing like LOST giving you a bunch of new questions and then not going to be on for the next 2 weeks…..gggrrr

Need to head on to bed, wondering how long before Drew joins me since I had to “yell” at him.

ps..just totally freaked myself out, hit one button and lost my post…crap.  Luckly I “saved” a draft and only had to rewrite the last 3 thoughts…that was a heart attack.

Catching Up

Current Mood:Bored emoticon Bored

I have my nightly glass of wine and just had some cheese and crackers, watching Madea’s Family Reunion…I love that character.  Two of our cats are circling me and vulturous….lol Our kitties really make my day, they are my babies.

Unfortunately, one of our babies isn’t doing too well.  Our 13yr old (Reggie Miller….my husband named him…..grin) has a nasal tumor that there is nothing that they can do about it.  He was disagnosed about a year ago.  He has lost weight over the last few months, his breathing is noisey, sneezes a lot and sometimes it is bloody, you can see the tumor swell under his eye and moving it, but he still has his fiesty grouchy attitude.  =)  The vet says we will know when it is time.  =(  We just spoil him, got him canned foods that he can smell (cats won’t eat unless they can smell it), and let him pretty much eat what ever he wants.  I just hope he makes it to 14, which will be in April.  Not bad for a barn cat runt…….grin…he once got up to 14#.  He is our baby and has had a good life.

Reggie and one of the kittens (Drew Brees…..I named him…….I love my Purdue football) usually jock for the position of sleeping next to me.  It is cute.  Of course, my husband says Drew is a momma’s boy, I say he is just well loved.  Both Drew and Alexis meow for me when I’m not home.  Sakura is so quiet that when she does meow it is soft and surprises you…that is our baby girl.

Well, what I’ve been up to.  As my last few entries, I lost my great-aunt and I flew out for the funeral.  It was hard, but made easier knowing that she was surrounded by family at her home when she went, that she hated living that way and was ready…..but also the stories that that family shared and the laughter, she would’ve loved that.  =)  That is the only good thing about funerals, which is sad, is seeing family you normally don’t and sharing stories.

I finally got to meet my other dad’s other cousin.  =)  They wanted to meet me since I’ve had their address and been sending xmas cards.  If you are family, I have your address and even I’ve never meet you, you’re getting a card.  Just my small part of staying connected with family.  Most of my side of the family had been at the wake the night before, that I missed, but 4 of 8 of my aunt’s nieces and nephews where there and they all sent flowers.  =)  So our love for her was shown.

The trip was totally exhausting though.  The jet lag…..even though I was tired when I got in Sunday, I could not fall asleep until 1am-2am Est time, 10-11pm my time.  Then I was back up by 6am and so I can make the 2 drive north, luckily they were an hour behind my folks so I got a little more sleep.  =)  I was almost out of it when I finally head back.  I put in my headset and spent the drive on the phone with my best friend.  That was a huge help.

I enjoyed visiting with my family, even if it was only one day.  It was a tough day for me, everyone was as at work, which was cool but NO INTERNET…icks…  Mom & dad got rid of their landline but have dsl, so ATT decided to change out their lines.  Of course, they are out in farm country where my sprint card didn’t get a very good signal.  By Tues, I was 2 days behind on work…..not good.  Of course, I was traveling all day Wed so I didn’t get to work until Thrusday.  Then I had payroll to work on Sat/Sun….so I’ve been working since I got home.  Took me forever to get time to do this.

I just wish I had more time with my family, of course, I really wanted to be home also.

We are now watching this : http://www.hbo.com/docs/programs/rightamerica/index.html

I love their tears when McCain lost…now they know the despair and depression we felt each time Bush won.

Wow, these people scare me & you wonder why I wanted the hell out of the Midwest…..they are concentrated there.  Hell, I wanted out of the Midwest before I even got there.  So happy to be in Oregon….I finally feel at home.

So now that I’m home, I’m back at the gym 5 days a week….although if we get good weather we’ll good for a hike instead, love those.

I really need to work on taxes this week, I am stressing it…..icks.  =(  Our vacation plans depend on it.  Once I get these done, I’m making an appointment with a tax accountant.

Well, need to get this posted and on to bed….maybe I’ll take some time to myself and read one of my history books, it is a thought.
