Kitten Pic

Here is a picture of the kitten I like to call Mr. Bitey Scratchy.  He's grow a lot since this picture and that's only 2 weeks!

Now if I could just teach him not to hang on my sheer drapes.  He's done a number on them so I'll have to replace them but not until he's out of his kittenhood.

Fat Paw Tuesday

Stupid kitten.  I told him and told him not to do it but he wouldn't listen.  Kitten just had to go for the wasp and now has a paw the size of a catcher's mitt.  Poor kitten.

Monkeys and Kittens

As far as I can tell our new kitten thinks he's a monkey.  I know this as I watch him swing on my curtains and monkey his way up his cat pole.  I knew this would happen and we are trying to stop him from doing this but of course my curtains are suffering.  As soon as he grows up I'll need to replace them but the good thing is I was going to replace them soon anyway so better to wait until he's grown out of his monkey phase.

Actually this kitten belongs to my daughter.  So he has to sleep in her room at night.  I don't want to be woken up by sharp claws in my face.  I've BTDT.  She complains that he wakes her up at 5am and claws her.  "Yes" I say "kittens do that."  I mean what else can I say?  She wants to let the kitten out of her room.  Um, no.  I don't have a wall or a door to my room only a sheet and I'm sure the kitten will totally enjoy jumping on my face or swinging from the sheet we have hanging from the ceiling to give us a smal…

Favorite Blogs

Many of the bloggers I follow seem to be suffering burn out and aren't posting as much now.  This leads me on the quest to find new active blogs to read.  I just want to find something entertaining to read.  It doesn't have to be humour but a bit is always good.

So if anyone has a favorite blog they want to suggest please post it in the comments section and I'll be eternally grateful.

People Who Lie

Tonight we had our board meeting.  I was met with several lies.  There are a couple people on our board who think it's okay to lie about things.  They think they can manipulate things to get control.  I'm all for letting them have control as long as it's in the best interests of the club but I am not for having them have control for the sake of having control to suit themselves.  We are a nonprofit society and we have rules we have to follow.

I am disgusted and appalled that this one woman "Fat Hitler" I'll call her, blatantly lied about something.  Not only does it put me in a bad position but I am now associated with a person who lies.  I want to disassociate myself from this group.  But I said I would stay another year.  I am having such a difficult moral problem with working with adults who behave like this. 

I can deal with lots of different people with all sorts of different personalities but I don't tolerate people who lie.  There is something that…

It's Very Late

It's 2:30am and I can't sleep.  Usually I just lay in bed and stay there even if I can't sleep but tonight I got up and turned on the computer.  I don't usually have a problem sleeping.  I usually have a problem waking up.  I hate mornings but that's an old post. 

I've always been one of those people who sleeps for a good 8-9 hours.  Even as a baby I was a good sleeper or so says my mom.  I don't know when it all changed but I think it was around the time I had babies.  Those babies never slept through the night until they were around 7months old.  And then even when they were sleeping through the night there were still all those nights when they were ill and didn't sleep.  There were a lot of those sick nights. 

I remember then the only thing I wanted was to sleep.  Sleep took everything away.  It was a refuge from a life that was not at all what I had hoped or planned it to be.  Most parents know that before kids you have these fantasies about being a…

I Wonder

Some days I wonder what is in other people's minds.  Like today for example.  I'm trying to get stuff done for this stupid board I'm on.  I e-mail stuff out to people and pretty much get no reply.  So I do a bunch more stuff and send it out.  I'm so tired of this bunch of people.  They have no idea how to work well with others.  They figure if they don't bother with it someone else will.  My work ethic is too strong to do that.  If it reflects badly on one it reflects badly on all of us.

And then there are the people who are so important that they are "too busy" to help with anything.  What they are really saying is that whatever needs to get done is not one of their priorities so they make an excuse and the excuse everyone uses now is being "too busy."  I'm sure there are some people who are "too busy" and they can't fit one more thing on their plates.  But what most people do is spend way too much time in front of their tv or…

Wonderful Choices

This is a whine free post so read away with a smile on your face.  The husband and I finally got our money from our retirement fund.  We went right to work spending that money as it was the Friday before our 20th anniversary and we had planned to go for lunch and look for a ring for me and possibly a new ring for the husband.  I ended up with a very simple single diamond of .33 carat size.  I can't believe how expensive diamond rings are now!  I figured I could get a much bigger diamond for what we wanted to spend but in the end we spent less and I'm okay with that.  I've waited 20 years for that engagement ring and I earned every carat of it.

The husband couldn't find a new band that he liked so he said.  I think it was really that he still likes his old band and was too cheap to get a new one.  Fine so we had his old band engraved.  I also got my old wedding band resized so I can wear it even though it doesn't really fit with the new diamond ring.

After that we w…
