Pity Post

Just yesterday it seems like I was finishing the spring fastpitch season and was planning all my summer camping trips. I was looking at my calender and realizing I had a full month ahead of me and I needed to put some things aside in order for me to get all those things done. Just yesterday I told you I wasn't going to post anything for awhile.

Holy shit, just yesterday was 3 weeks ago. Has it really been 3 weeks? I can't believe it. It may have seemed long for you without my witty words but for me I am pretty sure the last thing I knew was that it was the first day of spring and then, like, 6 days ago they told me it was the first day of summer. I am also hoping that my calender is wrong and Father's Day is in fact July 3.

I'm tired.

Honestly though, the whirlwind that has been my life isn't over but I promised to show myself again today and that is what you shall have. Lovely ole Me.

Let's see though, besides trying to make you feel sorry for me, I wanted to give you a brief overview of what I did while I was away. In "list" form.

1. That running I said I was going to do....well I did it. Well, most of it anyway. Mostly I just dreamt I was running.

2. I had a huge event at work that went very well. I talked to Jake Locker and he responded. And, I love him. And, I met saw his wife who is also a brunette. That makes me feel good about myself.

3.  Red (my sis in law) moved in. It is great. However, every time I turned around the goddamn dishwasher is full and/or ready to be emptied. Granted, she empties it, which is uber cool. What is not cool though is she watched, For the Love of the Game in my home.

4. I started a facebook page for our farm. I pretty much just entered the name but it is a start.

5. And, one of the biggest events that happened was the acquiring of another g.d. cat! (g.d. = god damn.) The story is as follows...I went to work. A girl brought kittens to my work and was handing them out to other young girls. I heard. I arrive at the scene when only one cat was left to be given. I confiscated the cat. Maybe I was going to take it to the Humane Society, we don't know. I didn't really want to keep the black/white kitten. Kitten is a girl. Cute, but I wasn't feeling it. Decision to auction off cat in big work event made. We are foster home for a week. Kitten is temporarily named Suzanna (for Oh, Suzanna sake). Kitten is a boy. Now named, A Boy Named Sue. Red falls in love with kitten. Red buys kitten at auction. I bang my head against the wall.

So yea, we have another shitter in the house. He is very precious and sometimes we call him Sue. However, he will be leaving in December. Its a good thing, we need room for next year's cat since we seem to acquire a new one every year.

There you have it. Some main life happenings of the last three weeks. Tomorrow I have to go to work and be with children ALL day long so lord help us all. I think we are all going a little crazy at the moment with the busy schedules. Mr Pepperworth just looked and Simon and said, "Wouldn't it be fun to take cats camping?" He really thought it would be fun.

Someone help this household.

Haha, we just got back from the beach, and while we were there I kept thinking "The cats would sure love the beach!".
I'm glad your event went well, and you got an adorable kitten added to the household! :)

You were fabulous at said event. And, OMG Jake Locker- I heart him too :) We always knew kitten was going home with you.

Glad you came up for a gulp of air. It's a sad commentary on a busy life when weeks go by in the snap of a finger/blink of an eye. Take a deep breath before you submerge again. In warp time your sissy's wedding will be happening in about 10 minutes.

Thanks for the highlights of the last 3 weeks (seriously where did it go) and I'm happy you didn't say you now need to take July off from blogging 'cus you always make be chuckle and I've missed you (for the 5 minutes June lasted). You seriously thought the kitten wouldn't end up staying? Great picture you perky little thing (I scrolled over it quickly since it looked like you were giving me the evil eye.
Red with a black kitten - what could be cuter?
Do you remember putting the cats on the leashes and dragging them around in the driveway because they flopped over instead of walking? I'm sure it would be easier dragging them around in the dirt while camping. Be sure and have the 'Lost Cats' posters and staple gun ready if you do take them.

HaHa -- I wondered what your Momski's thoughts on your photo would be. It's quite the 'withering look' to me. For god's sake, don't try it out on your cash crops! Who knows how long the wither might last?! (I'm sure it's an effective behavior modification technique on all those kidlets you work with.)
