Cats and Kittens Blog

Posted on September 10, 2011 at 11:14am 24 Comments

It all started in September 2009.







I was walking home with my older son when we decided to catch a kitten that we had seen following a male feral Siamese cat. We took him home and named him Deuce, the cat pictured above. When we found him, he was about 4 weeks old, was skinny, and was losing some… Continue

Las Vegas Trip Blog...

Posted on May 6, 2011 at 8:07am 3 Comments

This is for all the people who are wondering what my trip to Vegas was like. (It may take me awhile to finish this, but I'll type as much as I remember when I remember it).



The fist day of my trip was Friday, April 22, 2011, although it didn't start or end in Las Vegas. I got up, tested my BG, took my older son to school, and got my brother-in-law to watch my toddler for me for a few hours. After deciding that I didn't have time to recycle my CRV items because of the line, I called… Continue

Eyeglass Problems

Posted on March 12, 2011 at 8:32pm 3 Comments

Yesterday, I spent a total of $259 of my tax refund at Site for Sore Eyes. It was supposed to be a special of buy one, get one free, so I bought one pair of regular eyeglasses and (almost) got a pair of prescription eyeglasses free (they charged me $30 to tint them). I came back this morning at around 10:00 AM to pick them up after dropping Domino off to get neutered for free, only to find out that they forgot to tint my sunglasses and messed up my prescription to the point that it was worse… Continue

The Flu does me bad everytime I get it. Sorry to hear about u having to get that "pleasure" LOL! NOT!!!! REALLY NOT!!!! Since I've talked to u my old reliable pump went kuput and I had to go back on the shots again till the"loaner pump" got here then I had to totally reorder a new pump. Let's just say the summer wasn't that good to me.a nd save my cussing for another time (boy did I get mad at MM, my DR, my nurse & my insurance company not too nice to any of them at that time LOL) How's your kittens? I missed the last blog u put up about them???

Hey Lady how goes it??? We took a MUCH needed vacation for like 2 or 3 days up to one of my favorite places in the world last week. The Great Smoky Mountians. I posted my pics from it. I GOT MY HUSBAND (the land lover) up in a helicopter and posted the pics from that. I've changed my photo soooooo many times since u were here I'm surprised u knew who I was. LOL!

Hey Pinky! Sorry but FB really confuses me! LOL! I'll send u a fr over there. But I'm here more than I am over there. I had some wierd things going on with my bs for 3 days and just got back up here tonight. Looks like it's going to be one of those that I stay up all night b/c I slept most of the day. Hey now I couldn't walk across the floor w/o it taking all of my energy to do that little thing. You shpuld have seen me trying to get off the couch (I was laying down there) It was honestly funny. Those bs's 525 and over 600 will do that to u though.

Hi pinkyspurse. Hope all is well with the cats and kitties, and that your weekend is going well. Has Heidi found her way inside again? Our dogs are sure inside; it's so hot they're back at the door to come in five minutes after they've gone out. All winter long we waited for summer--and now we've sure got summer!

You do know the older they get the less reason they listen too right???LOL! My kids are 22 (almost 23) and 21 and I think that they missed the reason train. Or as my mom used to say "When they said brains they thought they said rain and run under the porch" LOL! Well it's true! LOL!
