Sheldon took 2 weeks off work (the 1st in 30 yrs) and we drove back east to see my folks. It’s a 2-day, 1200 mile drive, a great way to see how 2 people work together. We left with Jaylee (Dachshund) on the Thursday before Labor Day. We stopped (wisely) just east of Indianapolis. After a relaxing time in a motel, we drove the rest of the way. We got there in time for Sheldon to fix Mother’s electric piano before sundown. Continue reading
Bathing a cat is as exciting as it sounds! Typically, I don’t bathe my cats but Stella has eating issues. I think she was deprived of food in her childhood. As a result, she doesn’t have a “stop eating” switch in her little brain.
Oh, for heaven’s sake, she’s a Fat Girl!! She’s so fat that she can’t clean herself properly. Her fur starts getting greasy and she starts pulling it out all over the house. I’m sick of picking up wet little bunches of cat hair! Today was the day for cat bathing.
I’m terribly sorry about the photos. I suppose I didn’t hold the phone steady. Anyway, I survived the bath with no bloody scratches; Stella lived, although her vocal protest told a different story. I think she has forgiven me for torturing her because she came to the food bowl, not to eat but to make sure I hadn’t stolen it.
So I have 2 things to share: my honey ordered a ringand I made “Mama’s Mac & Cheese” Friday afternoon. The picture doesn’t do it justice. I’ll share the recipe and update you on Sheldon & me.
I hope you had a great weekend!

I was diagnosed with Recurring MS in November 2012. I haven’t posted this info anywhere because I don’t want sympathy. I take a daily injection (Copaxone 20 mg) which keeps the disease on a pretty even keel. Continue reading
After 18 teeth extractions and $246, my sweetie is home! She has pain & antibiotic meds and she’s walking pretty well. When we got home, she went straight for the water. Poor thing! I’ll be playing nurse for the next 2 weeks! Continue reading
