Cats, Crafts and Cleaning
Wake us when it's Springtime
Hey all. How are you? Mr. Cody here to say hi.
And me Toeshee!
Cody : We heard Robins singing this morning. There is still lots of snow outside, but the sun is shining today. I want Momma to let me out to inspect the gardens, but she said no. We have to wait for the snow to melt and the temperatures to warm up. I am going stir crazy!
Toeshee: Just eat and nap and play with our cat toys Cody.
Cody: I don't like your idea of playing Toeshee. You jump and wrestle and bite! I like to play chase and hide -n- seek, but I hate it when you sink your teeth into me!
Momma Lorianna: These two boys of mine are a handful. They are more rowdy than the girls and eat more often too. Boys will be boys right? :)
I am hoping to get a cordless vacuum this weekend. It will make cleanup so much easier for me. Yesterday I swept the stairs, the hallway and the litterbox area. It was such a pain, literally and figuratively. The cat hair on the steps was like tumbleweeds!
I have been taking a different pain reliever called Tramadol. I take it with an acid reducer and an anti nausea drug. It is just okay as far as pain relief. It makes me a bit spacy, which I guess helps one not focus on the pain as much. But I don't think there is anything thing out there that can take away this kind of joint pain. It's just a matter of learning to live and function despite it. Most days, I think that's possible. I'm still waiting for that magic wand to take away the Sads and the pain.
I have been doing some crafting again, which is a really nice way to unwind. I have been making altered tags and envelopes for Easter. Lots of rubber stamping, glitter, ribbons, and coloring.
If anyone would like one, just let me know! I have six done so far and can usually manage about two a day. And Easter isn't even here until early next month! You will be doing me a favor, because me hands need the physical therapy and my mind needs something happy to focus on.
e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a card. They're not exactly masterpieces but, they are made with Love.
Have a really Happy week!
Cody and Toeshee: Bye! Hugs and Purrs!
