Kristen Kraziness

We have had a pretty uneventful few days and I am thankful for that. That is not a bad position to be in!
I do believe that I have one of the craziest cats ever. This will be about 21 seconds of your life that you can not get back, but I videoed Kristen during our washing machine washing. She has always, since the first week I had her, meowed and fussed during certain cycles of our washing machine. She always wants to be in the laundry room when I wash and then she meows and chirps the whole time. I need an animal psychologist to analyze her.

This made me LOL!! I have two cats and they meow constantly and drive us crazy! They are terrified of the washing machine and love to watch you turn on the shower or flush the toilet! I found your blog because I am a devoted KK fan - love your daily read!

Laurie, Kristen is a very cute, sassy kitty!, My kitty who ia a tabby also love to mew at everything! Esppecially if she thinks she may get treats out of it! Lol I'm pretty much the only member in my family who appreciates what a lovely kitty she is!

I heart Kristen! You and I are the only ones who do!

Laurie every time you write about Kristen it cracks me up. Animals with "human" names always do. I have a cat named Roy, so I should know! It was the name he came with, so we kept it, but people are always commenting that it is a strange name for a cat. Poor kitty! Anyway, loved the video. She looks a little leary of the spin cycle.

haha! That is kind of strange! Maybe some wash cycles are soothing to her like a baby with white noise or something!? So funny!!

This literally made me laugh out loud! Your blog cracks me up. You are so funny!

LOL! That is seriously bizarre! I have never seen my cat, Poppy, show an interest in the washing machine at all, although she does sometimes come into the bathroom while I am in the show and roll herself up in the bathmat! o.O

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.
