Ahhhh…A Break

I finally have 3 days to myself. It has been wonderful. I have gotten to relax. I have gotten to get the cobwebs out of my head. It has been nice. I have had the opportunity to speak to people I don’t normally get to speak with. I usually have to speak with people I don’t know and sometimes just don’t like.

My cats didn’t know what to think about seeing me more. They tried to party but I was there to stop them. They didn’t know what to think. I had to stop Soleil a few times from some misadventures. At one point I heard something loud. Guess where she was! On top of the fridge! What? No, Soleil! You can’t be on the fridge! That is a no-no! And I loved the look on her face when I told her to get down. It was like, “WTF?! Have you lost your mind?” And the thing was that I was thinking the same thing about her. Had she lost her mind? Why would she think standing on the fridge was ok?

At least Chloe behaved for the most part. She just gave dirty looks from time to time when I was bothering her. She’s funny.

I love both my girls. Silly things.



Can You Help A Child In Need?

My friend’s son is in need of medical help. I’m reaching out to anyone who can and will help a child have the life he deserves. He is a beautiful baby. He has a lot of health issues, though. He is 7 months old with Down’s Syndrome and many health problems.

You can go view his needs at and see his story and his beautiful face. This is not a scam or anything of the like. This is me asking on the behalf of a friend in need. If you can and feel the urge, please do. If not, ignore this altogether. I wish desperately that I had it all to give.
