I feel like I cant keep up lately. To anything. Kids, school,church callings, housework,bills,cats,kittens,yardwork,etc etc. I do make a schedule, I make a to do list every day. I never get it all done. I started this blog hoping to... I dont know, every one else has one, so....
And plus. It is a great way to keep up with my life. I have always kept a journal but lately have not been so good at keeping up.SO here I am.
The other day megan tells me on wednesday after school that she has this huge project due thursday. She had known about it for a week I think. She had a church activity that night which she probably should have missed but I had to be at the church also to play the piano for choir practice and Chris was working so I took the kids to the church. Besides, If megan had misssed her activity she would have mised out on the treat the following activity. Wouldn't want that. So, at 10 pm her project was finally done, and hopefully she was asleep by 11. If you know Megan, you know how the next day went. Enough said.
We have 2 litters of kittens in our house right now. It all started with Mocha. Our sweet silly Mocha,our first family pet. Siamese cat. That was fine, just one cat.Then we found a stray, who was so sweet to me, but mean to everyone else. We kept her, and named her Belle. She was my special cat. Made me feel good. She loved me unconditionally,gave me hugs,let me rub her tummy. Then she got run over one day. I cried all day. Then that summer some stray neighborhood runaway cat decided to have kittens in my inlaws back yard.We tried to ignore them. And we did. We even called the animal people to come and get them and take them away. They came. I think they caught one by the neck-with a pole with picker upper claws on the end. broke my heart. Then they set this totally inhumane trap for the others and said to call them when they were caught. We were so broken hearted that we rigged the trap so that it would not trap them. And we took one home. Then the rest followed. We kept the others outside and just let the one little fluffy orange one in the house. There we were content with the 2 cats. Then it started raining. A lot. So we would let the other kittens come in during the rainy nights. We put them in the bathtub,with a bed,bowl of water and food. They loved the bath tub. they loved the rain, because they knew that it would be time to come in and go in the bath tub. Well, one day they came in and never went back out.Just once in awhile to play. So then we had Mocha,boo boo( fluffy orange guy),halloween,and flash. Flash mysteriously disappearred one day when she was outside playing. Halloween and booboo grew up in our house. Then Halloweeen reached that age....the age of sexual maturity. Mocha was already that age. Oh, why didnt we get them fixed? We were stupid. And broke. So Halloween got pregnant. Then along came christmas,skippy,grey, and tigger.. They grew up in our house. SO then we had Mocha,boo boo,halloween, christmas,skippy,grey and tigger. Halloween never came home one day and same with skippy. Grey and christmas got to that age.....boo boo is that daddy we think since they rarely left our house. Oh, by this time Mocha was only an outside guy. He was ready. So grey and christmas ended up pregnant at the same time.So now we have......Booboo,Tigger,christmas,grey,panther,garfield,sweet girl,shy boy,pip,and popcorn. Popcorn is siamese so we are thinking Mocha is still out there. Or it could simply be genes. Because if you have been following along you know they are all related. Except Belle who was run over earlier on. SO we have 10 cats. Somebody take our cats. They are cute,and cuddly and so funny but we are seriously out numbered. We should have had Mocha fixed. But we were broke. Oh, we did get booboo fixed after he got the girls pregnant.
