Hi! ¬†How are you? ¬†Lonely? ¬†I’m sorry. ¬†It’s been a long time since I’ve visited, hasn’t it? ¬†I hope that, despite my long absence, you’ve still been having fun and doing all the things. ¬†I didn’t mean to be gone so long – really. ¬†But life happened? ¬†And I’m still trying to get a handle on it all.

It’s been an eventful month. ¬†That’s both good and not-so-good.

Also? ¬†I’ll be back with more stuff real soon. ¬†In the meantime, happy Hump Day! ¬†(Thank God it’s almost over.)



How did September treat you? ¬†Are you looking forward to October? ¬†Let’s catch up in the comments!

It’s been a long day, thanks to another stupid headache and two grumpy boys, so I present you with a picture of Shadow, because everyone knows that looking at cat pictures makes you feel happy.


Shadow is a very silly, upside-down sort of kitty. ¬†He’s also very soft and would make an excellent lap cat, if only Seymour weren’t so allergic. ¬†Oh, well – at least now we can have cats, as opposed to before when we lived in town.

I woke up to the devastating news that we’ve lost yet another cat.


This time it wasn’t one of the kittens, but Mrs. Calico herself. ¬†A great mama and a fantastic mouser, Calico was one of the sweetest kitties I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. ¬†She was apparently out hunting last night or early this morning when someone ran over her near our driveway.

I didn’t say anything to the kids this morning, but they’re going to be terribly upset tonight when they find out. ¬†This makes six cats we’ve lost since May (unnamed kitten, Oscar, Freckles, Minnie, Katniss, and Calico all died; it’s seven if you count Patches, who went to a new home), and I don’t think I can take any more of this.

I really hope the boys didn’t let Shadow out this morning, because I’m afraid we might not see him again if they did. ¬†He’s very shy and likes to hide – last time we let him out, he ended up stuck in the garage overnight because we couldn’t find him.

Rest in peace, Mrs. Calico, and take care of your babies in heaven.
