Hi Natalie- Sorry to hear that you are having your wisdom teeth extracted this week. I had all of mine pulled when I was 19 and in college. They give you no wisdom and you will not miss them at all. Mine were pulled before I became a D so I didn't have that issue to deal with. I looked like a chipmunk for a few days and I think you will too. Like Marie says below, stock up on soft foods, like soup, cottage cheese, yogurt,and apple sauce. I hope it isn't too bad for you !! My thoughts will be with you. Cat
Natalie, so sorry to hear about the extractions coming up. I know well how it goes. I had mine with just tons of novocaine and some nitrous oxide. stock up on soft foods like cottage cheese. I'll be thinking of you!
Hi Natalie! Thanks for the wonderful video of the cat assisting her "staff" with yoga. I know all about that! I was at the Yoga Journal conference this weekend in San Francisco, and I took what I call my "decoy mat." It's my yoga mat that I put out for the cats, next to my own, so they have a place and aren't just in my way. Well, the decoy mat has a lot of claw marks! No one else at the YJ conference had a mat that was bedraggled in that manner. But it made for a funny story. Thanks again for the laugh!
Hi Natalie. I just read two Joe Grey books in the Joe Grey Mystery series, and had to stop by your page to have another look at your kitties. Joe Grey and his friends are cats with mythical Welsh heritage having fun and adventures in California with their human companions. Happy New Year!

Thank you Natalie...did not know that you are Jewish, so I hope I didn't offend you. However, when I sent my "Christmas/Christian" greetings, I was aware that they would also be received by Christian and non-Christian friends alike. The intent, of course, was not one out of single mindedness, but as a means of unifying in the name of Love, knowing that though not everyone celebrates Christmas (let alone as it SHOULD be)...everyone recognizes it. If I had begun listing particular faiths, I would have assuredly overlooked some, and invariably offended a few. Our faith (Catholic), as you know, has its roots steeped in Judaism. I attended a student's Bat Mitzvah a while back, and was astounded by the similarities in the proclamation of faith....and so dear Natalie, a most Blessed Hanukkah to you and yours ♥ with love.... linda
Awww....thanks Natalie :) Your comment brightens my day....I've been getting up lately with numbers not quite where I'd like them to be....and yet, I've been a good girl around the general spread of fancy dishes about this time of year. Can't win eh?? We spent Christmas Eve at the kids'. Our eldest grandson, Mason...4, is right into it. The younger 2...Riley, 21 months, and his cousin Stephen, 18 months are still a little a young....wait 'till next year though!!
Even though Christmas dinner was at their place (both our children share/live in one huge house), I still made gingerbread as well as shortbread cookies, stuffing, and tourtières (meat pies)....by request. It was their first Christmas dinner...first turkey...a learning curve, but all ended up delicious (daughter-in-law forgot vegetables, and turkey had to go back in oven as it was under done....remember cooking for your in-laws?!) Danielle (daughter) made fondue for dessert. It was a long evening for the youngest 2. When I was a child, we had a Réveillon at my grandmother's every year....dinner followed midnight Mass, then opening up gifts!! We (the children) would crash on beds upstairs before driving back into the city, an hour away from my gr-mother's village. Must have been rough on our parents....never mind my poor grand-mother!! How was YOUR Christmas Natalie?
