Here Kitty Kitty Kitty!!

I drove to my friend's house Friday morning and got out of my car to go knock on her door. There was a faint meow in the distance. I asked her if she had a cat around her house. She said that there were a few strays here and there. So we walked back to the car. And the meows got louder... uh oh! Yep, cat was in the engine of my car. So I opened the hood and Operation Kitty Kitty began!

Do you know how hard it is to get a cat out of a car? NOT EASY! So two huge slices of turkey and 45 minutes later, the cat emerged from the front on my Honda Pilot.

The moment I heard the meowing, I knew exactly what cat it was. There was this gorgeous tiny black cat hanging out in the back yard for the last week. It meowed so loud and always annoyed Rigel. But it pulled at my heart strings. I love cats, but I am so allergic to them, I couldnt even pet this little guy. He tried to get into our house so many times and it just broke my heart. He was obviously an inside cat once.

So he's had a PCS that might prove helpful. My friend lives in a real neighborhood, not in a sea of miltiary townhomes. Maybe someone will fall in love with this kitty as much as I did and adopt him.

Tang Spiced Tea

My aunts make this instant drink mix at Christmas time and hand it out to all of the families. I remember drinking as much as I could. It's a great winter-time hot tea. I was having some hot cider today and realized that THIS is what I was missing. So I'm gonna go buy some Tang tomorrow and whip some of this up for next week. It'll be a great hot tea to take to school/work since I only have to add hot water!

1 1/3 c. Tang flavor beverage crystals
1/3 c. instant tea
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cloves

Mix together well and put in canister. Put 1 teaspoon per cup of hot water.

My Island

I'm not a poet. Never have been. But this keeps rattling inside my head. It's a work in progress, so take it easy.

My Island

I talk but no one hears me.

I plan but no one cares.

I wait but there's only silence.

I walk but there's only mine.

I need but there's only a dream.

I cry but there's only a dog.

I want him to need me and I dont mean the dog.

I'm alone on this island with my furry friend. Making my way through this wet sand.

Waves of ...... emptiness, guilt, want, worry, apathy, and finality wash over me.

Unwanting to imagine an alternative. Scared to want more? Even though, even now the boat is built for two.

"Drunk much" is coming to visit...

So I was told yesterday that the random jackass that called us in my previous post is coming to Kansas for a visit. Fun times, I'm sure.

At least its a long weekend. A much needed long weekend. And Joe says there's a haunted house in Kansas City everyone wants to go to. I've never been to a real haunted house. Kinda excited about it!!

Drunk much?

As a good rule of thumb, dont call up married men in the middle of the night to discuss women they "banged" in Germany before they were married. It's sad that this small note would have to be made, but there are some rather retarded people in this world. And it just happens that my husband is friends with so many of them. You know who you are. And you are stupid.
