Sunday, January 8, 2006 long has it been?...

I have so many things I want to say...but I never seem to be able to get online anymore...
It's almost like my life is getting in my way...but, you know, "WHAT LIFE?!"
I work too much overtime.  Who knew that getting a raise at work also meant more responsibility and more, you know, work?
My daughter is all mean and moody and teenager-y...mean mean mean (that's what she calls me all the time, but we know who's really the mean one here, and it's the one with all the teen hormones and the slamming-door issues...),
(Well, she's mostly moody except for when she does that Jekyll/Hyde thing and turns into my sweet wonderful daughter again for a few hours a day, how many years does this schizophrenic-teen-act last, anyway, and then I can have the sweet wonderful girl back for good?)
So, let's else?
D is his regular self...C is about to drive him crazy but he doesn't freak out like I do, he is actually able to relate to her in a calm, reasonable manner and get through to her.
D is awesome and I don't appreciate him like I should, I need to work on that.
What else?...
My kitty is SOOOOO BIG.  She is not even a year old yet and she is the biggest cat any of us have ever seen.  The fact that she's so big and that she has such fluffy long hair makes us think that she's partly Maine Coon.
Here she is, taking up both of my pillows (and yes, I do have Goofy pillows, stop laughing!):

  1. My Tabby has those mood swings...sometimes the eveil child from hell, sometimes an took her sister two years to recover...

  2. So glad to see a post from you! My kitty weighs in at about 17 pounds and I thought she was big, but I think yours is bigger! Don't worry... when life gives you a few minutes we will be here!

  3. I have missed you sooo much!!!!  I am so glad you were able to do a post!!  :)
    What is that with work....they give a raise and then expect you to ... do more???  LOL
    I am dreading those teenage years...just dreading them...C sounds a lot like me when I was a teenager...just keep telling yourself it's just hormones and it will be over soon!  ;)
    Your kitty is so cute!!!  We didn't know we had a Maine Coon until he got older and we took him to a really good 'cat' vet.  Her tail looks just like our cats tail...and he weighs 20 lbs!!  He lays on my chest at night...every nite...can never figure out why I can breathe once he moves! LOL!!


  4. It's so nice to hear from you!  I want to be that cat .... she looks so relaxed and content!  LOL  Pennie

  5. Happy your life is going so well.

  6. Nice kitty picture.   ~Rhonda~

  7. Welcome to the world of being a teenagers Mom! Applause!!!!!! I think we should automatically be prescribed nerve meds when they turn 12! Oh the drama! Trust me, it only gets better! If Rain lives to see her freshman year at college it will be a miracle! If I don't pull out all of my hair it will be blessing, Dam I'd hate to be bald! Good luck, I am feelig for you! Oh, on the door issue.... ever think of taking it off the hinges, temporarily of course after getting earned back! lol
