Hunter Cat

I thought in all my years of owning cats I had seen it all. I was WRONG. Jason the great hunter kitty started hissing and growling at us last night. So I went to look to see what he had. Jason the great hunter did not have a lizard, or a bug, or a mouse, but a piece of broccoli. He hissed and growled and was very proud of his vegetable. He defended it, batted it around. and finally ate his prey.

NOW, I have seen everything. I was ROLLING.

Memorial Day

On a serious note. Today is a day of honor for all those who have fallen for our country. There is something profound about the men and women of the armed forces who take the oath to defend our country against ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic. And oath they take freely without coercion, and it includes "so help me God."

Thank you to all of you for serving your country and protecting our freedoms.

Graduation Day

So Kindergarten is over. J graduated and will be moving on. I tell you what, there is chaos in our schools at the end of the year. I didn't get information I needed about his summer camp, they didn't seem to know which way was up, but they sure knew how to sugar up our kids. J was exhausted from the sugar drop..........

So now the summer is begun. WOOHOO

Poor kid

So thankfully this past weekend J's pictures were on Saturday. Cuz the poor kid jumped into the pool at the same time as his buddy D. Well they were both going for the beach ball and since D is heavier, he hit the water first....... and J came down on his head. Chin first. Put a pop knot on D'd head. What I didn't realize until the next day was that J bruised his chin. As if having a purple chin wasn't enough, he got stung by a wasp beside his nose yesterday after school. So he had a swollen nose and a purple chin. Boys will be boys!

Kids do the darnest things

Jman will probably be upset at this story, but it cracked me up last night. Well that and embarrassed me. We had a long day, so I told him he could choose where we went for dinner. He said CHUCKY CHEESE. We haven't been in a long time, so I said okay. We ordered a small pizza, got some tokens, and off he went. Well, the pizza came, he sat down, ate a little and off he went. I ate what I wanted and decided it was time for us to go, it was late. So I went, found Jman and tried to get him headed to the door. Well he headed out alright. Straight to table with pizza on it. Not out table. And picked up a piece of pizza before I could stop him. I was mortified. I got him to put it down, and went and apologized to the family. I felt AWFUL. What kind of mother was I???? Got him out to the car, and by now he is hysterical. Not because he was embarrassed, but he was hungry. And tired. And did I mention hungry? So we drove the McD's in the SLOWEST drive thru line EVER!!!! He ate on the way home and that was that. Thank the heavens today is friday and we can relax tonight.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all those mother's out there, the mother's to be and mother's of mothers. It is the hardest job in the world, but also the most rewarding.

Nothing new

You know, I had a terribly busy week, and oddly there is still nothing new. An old friend bought me lunch on friday, which was a nice surprise. The kittens are adjusting well, they are starting to run the house as a good cat should. I got my pictures back from when the President was on MacDill, turned out rather nicely, so once I get a chance to scan them, I will. :) And post them out here. Tomorrow is mother's day. Hard for me to believe that this will be my 6th one to celebrate.

Okay so sometimes the journey to find a good job is long. And it can be very disappointing when you make it a long ways thru the "weeding" process and then don't make the cut. I think I knew that it wasn't to be, but it does not make the disappointment any less. Will I try again? Yeah, sure......... maybe. But for now I have to be content with knowing that I was in the lower part of the cream of the crop. That is good enough right? Why doesn't it feel like that?

So we picked up the kittens last night. I would post pictures, but they promptly went two different directions. One has a stubby tail and longer fur and the other is tall and lanky. Both are tabbies. They will keep us mighty busy. As soon as we can get they to hold still long enough, pictures will be forth coming.
