We Have a Cat

We have a cat.....I don't know if the cat can stay. I may have ten hemangiomas on my lips before this is all said and done. When I get nervous I bite my lips.
The cat is sweet but hid under SK's crib for hours and then has meowed ALL NIGHT LONG. Kristen has reached a new height in craziness.

Her name is now Pink A Boo

What the shelter lady had to put up.......................................................................................................................................................................................... A YORKIE!

We have two dogs and one outside cat...who wondered up...pregnant...didn't know it...had 6 kittens...then got pregnant again...that crew was messed up..."gave them all way."

Bottom line...make sure she is fixed.

Have fun!

I cracked up that Kristen likes coffee. Have fun with your new member of your family. (maybe)

Bless your heart! Diamond sounds as crazy as Kristen! I'm with Lauren, have you considered the yorkie? :-)
I love Pink a Boo, such a great name! Hope it all works out.

You talking about "the cat lady" reminded me of "the dog lady" our family got our dog from. She lived in a mobile home on the river, met us at the car wearing knee high rubber boots to escort us inside because she claimed that snakes were bad after it rained. The wildest part was one whole wall in the living room of the mobile home was taken up by a gigantic aquarium that held one fish that was so big it probably couldn't turn around. Gotta love those pet people! Hope things get better!

Aww! What a cute cat! I'm definitely a cat person more than a dog person, and I think she's adorable.

I hope her weird behaviour settles down soon though, the cat meowing all night would drive me a little mad too!

You might be surprised by how quickly you fall in love with your little furry friend. :)

Hahah! I just had to comment on the yorkie part! I have one and you'd be surprised at all the talk I hear about how mean they are! Mine is the sweetest baby ever, she's just like a real baby!

Many prayers sent your way for a good night tonight!!!

Cats are odd creatures...our first cat was a year old when we brought home another cat. She hated him and he did the hiding thing too. It took maybe a week at most before they became best buddies. Good luck!

I go to church with Shannon Newman and have been reading your blog on and off through the link on her's.

I just saw your post about your cat and noticed you mentioned a "cat castle". We are currently trying to get rid of our cat. We are moving to and just cannot take him with us. Is this "cat castle" a real place and do they take cat's in or just give them away? Any info you have would be greatly appreciated! You can email me at

If you get a chance, drop me an email!

Thank you

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
