Just Me And My Three

It's just me and my kitties in the house during the day for a bit. My 17 year old daughter is slowly breaking me into that empty nest syndrome many parents talk about. She's camping at a campground near the race track wear the Nascar races will be here in Michigan. They will be going to some of the races. My husband is very busy at work and isn't getting home until 5:30-6:00 pm. Saturday he is going to a "son only" father's day breakfast at his dad's retirement home. He said that "maybe" we could go somewhere fun if he doesn't have work to do around the house and if he isn't too tired.
That doesn't sound too promising to me, but we shall see...

Cricket has been invited to be a House Panther! She will spread the joys of kitty naughtiness whenever she feels in the mood to do so. ;) She may allow Cody to post on occasion too. Billie is fine with just doing updates about herself here. She's still feeling good , Temptations free. She will sit on my lap and purr for a bit and nap for a bit, then she goes to her favorite sleeping spot on the sofa. Cody will come for some scritchers and baby talk and Cricket will allow petting and compliments. They are each very different personalities, but I think they love me equally in their own way. :)

I feel like I am behind again on visiting blogs. There are so many friends that I have met especially since Billie's illness and my sadness over the one year of Tookie going to The Bridge. I am going to try to find a balance between chores and blogging so I don't fall behind. Please know you are all dear to me and I enjoy making new friends even if I can't always comment. <3
I must also make time to clean up my side bar. I want to add lots to my favorites and delete some that are no longer up. Because I am not tech savvy at all I must do this very, painfully... slowly. Seriously, I can not for the life of me figure out cut and paste! Yes, I feel stupid. I'm amazed that I am actually blogging at all. I'm one of those learn by doing people, so maybe I just need more practice. I'm just afraid of messing up and never being able to fix it.

Well, I hope you are all having a good Thursday. I will say hi again soon! =^..^=

Hi Lorianna,
Isn't great to have a house of 3 kitties? My mom likes it a lot too with us 3 girls!
A House Panther? How exciting to be part of such a great club!
We are having some computer issues at my house again, and I am very upset....again. Right now my mom is trying to run Spybot which she read somewhere on the internet, that it might help. Oh no! The computer just tried to shut down by itself! Mom just does not want to have to spend the money for a new computer, but we just might have to this weekend.
See you again soon!

Thank you so much for helping Jade! The vet out here, who did the tests, is attempting to treat the symptoms (and not doing too well), but we still don't know the cause. I'm waiting to hear (by phone) from ML's wonderful vet in Houston, so I can get her opinion on what we should do. There's something bad making her sick all this time - I just wish we could figure out what it is.
Your furry family is adorable. I'd love to be home alone with relaxing! My 17 year old is leaving and going to college now, but I've still got 2 more left - 16 and 14. Relaxing with kitties will come eventually!

Never worry about commenting, or keeping up. Almost everycat knows that beans get busy and sometimes there is only time to read and not comment.

Congratulations to Cricket. Perfect house panther!

Mom has had two 17 year old girls grow up. One is 23 now and the other is 20. Just wait, yours will continue to amaze you and make you happy even as you watch her grow up and become independent. Remember, she still needs you and watches you. She still needs you to tell her how wonderful she is, even when she is crabby.

Enjoy these days alone, find some fun things to learn, like French, or drawing, or such.

purrs, Prinnie

Oh Lorianna! How precious you are dear friend:)
Listen to what Prinnie can not make yourself crazy keeping up here! Some days you just read the bloggies. Some days you comment. Only Daisy somehow manages to be a purrrfect kitty. She is astounding and amazing! We all just do our best.
Mommy is goin to put me to bed now, tomorrow will be a long hard sad day for us all.
Love your Miss Peach
