Life Would Be more Fun As A Cat

I'm sitting at the desk typing on the dinosaur computer today. My poor little laptop has become just a word processor now until we can get the wireless connection for it back up. It all started when we bought the new printer/scanner. It's a confusing mess that actually made my husband very frustrated because he's usually so good with this kind of thing.
Well, for now, I'll make do. I'm going to upload my pictures into this thing and try to post some later.
Last night was crazy. We had forgotten that Friday was our new trash pick up day and so at around 9:30 pm we were gathering trash from the waste baskets in the bathroom and bedrooms and doing the litter boxes. While we did that, Cody and Cricket decided to play thundering herd of rabid elephants throughout the house. along with that, my daughter announced that she had lost her Spanish workbook and expected me to know where it was. *-* Now, granted I am usually good about finding things that nobody else seems to be able to find, but she was the last one to have held it in her hot little paws. Why does it always end up being mom's fault? I guess we'll be buying a Spanish book soon.
So, while all of that's going on, I kinda pestered husband about adopting Callie, from Mo. (You can read about her at
It's a blog eat blog/purrchance to dream)
"We just changed 4 litter boxes, those two nuts are tearing the house apart, ( I he d
forgot to mention that Cricket had been playing Tarzan on the drapes and got caught in them, needing a rescue from me earlier.) and we just bought more cat food today. I don't want to be a crazy cat lady."
Oops! I decided not to point out that he couldn't be a lady anyway, but I didn't.
Anyway, the answer was a resounding "no". :(
Now, I'm going to finish cleaning, make some tea, and mess with my camera. I hope tonight is more calm. I will try to light my candles for people and fur babies in need and in memory of and dream of melting snow and blooming flowers.

Thanks for trying with Callie.

Hope you had a Blessed Imbolc ~ frankly, if Nancy hadn't reminded me, I would have forgotten!
