Hey y’all! Didn’t mean to neglect my little blog -just been extra busy this week. End of month at work means furiously entering in orders before the cut off; helping out at church on Wednesday nights means cutting out spinners for games; and rescuing kittens means A LOT of time and attention focused on bottle feeding the wee little porker. Yes, I rescued a kitty that was on the railroad tracks near my workplace – and the local shelter wouldn’t take him (long story), so being the softy (read:idiot) that I am, I brought the ittybittykitty home with me. I am a kitty-virgin and know nothing about cats, so I called my VetDoctor friend and she told me what to do until I could get him in to the office. Oh, by the way, my 3 year old named her Princess Rosella until we found out yesterday she is a he, so now his name is Smokey (cuz he’s gray). I took some pics of him, but I forgot the all important usb cable, so I can’t upload the photos just yet. I’ll try and do that this weekend.
I have to say, I have never been a cat person. I’m a dog person. I have always had dogs and I love dogs. However, once you see this little guy’s face, you will understand why I now own a cat. You cannot resist the cute, trust me. Even my boss, who is a self proclaimed cat-hater, plays with little guy every day. I bring him to work with me because I have to bottle feed him several times a day for at least the next two weeks (the vet thinks he’s about 3 weeks old). It hasn’t been a problem, and my boss totally understands. I have a great boss! And the kitty got a fairly clean bill of health – considering the circumstances. He’s on some antibiotics just to be safe, and a wormer medicine, then in 3 weeks he will get his first round of shots. I was a little concerned about rabies, but the vet said he should still be protected by his mama’s antibodies, so she wasn’t too concerned about it. *whew*
I also have been preoccupied with the impending high school reunion next summer. Why be preoccupied now? Because the organizers have set up a website where alumni can post their pictures and send messages to each other. People I haven’t thought about in years are suddenly at the forefront of my mind, and I have reconnected with some long lost childhood friends. I will admit, I’m having a blast walking down memory lane! Also at the forefront of my mind is the fact that I now have 9 months to get my rear (and the rest of me) in shape. I have no delusions that I will be the hottest hottie at the reunion, but I fo sho want to look as good as I can. Already I’m getting messages from guys that I was certain didn’t know my name in high school, but they certainly seem to know now, which I find strange.
So anyway, that’s what’s going on with me right now. Maintaining the 154 right now, although I haven’t walked in a week – gotta get back to that asap! I didn’t even have time to go weigh in this week, so I will have to make time for it next week.
For what it’s worth, I have been checking on your blogs and commenting once in a while, just didnt’ have time to sit down and formulate a post of my own. I’ll be back to my regular posting next week, unless I find a baby bunny or something else to rescue.
