Can't wait!!

After persuading Glenn... he finally broke down and let me get a new comforter. My old one, we've had for 7 years... it's torn on the inside and when you keep pulling it up tears more and more. I've sewn it and it stayed for sometime.. but I am just sooo done with it. Sooo finally.. after searching some I found a comforter online for a stinking good deal. I can't wait to get it to finally decorate my bedroom - I've been having that itch to paint - so hurry up comforter and come already!

My furniture is maple.. and I was thinking about chocolate brown walls with some of that blue that's in the comforter... not quite sure what I am gonna do.. but the wheels are turning!!

New baby :)

We brought home the newest member to our family today. She got her shots.. got fixed and has welcomed a much larger place than her previous cage. :)
Please welcome

Movie Night

Caramel Popcorn, Surround Sound, Recliners, Blankets and a Movie = Movie Night
Need I say more?!? :)

Scrawn Rawn

We had to put our cat to sleep yesterday. We knew this day was coming, about 1 month ago. We've had her since she was born... 16 years ago... the same year as Glennie was born.

She was in kidney failure... She lost alot of weight.. forgot to pee in the litter box... ended up with lots of urinary tract infections etc. It was time... we talked about putting her to sleep over a month, but never did it. We even tried diapers for her.. which ended up giving us a good laugh and after a couple days, I think Scrawny actually liked them!! But those ended up not really working either. Even put her on estrogen to try and strengthen her bladder.. but that didn't work either. It was time..she lived a long and good - wayyyy spoiled - life!!

We told the kids when they are ready we can get another kitty... and surprisingly that's exactly what they wanted to do today. (I guess having a month to know scrawny was leaving was enough time to say goodbye and start thinking about the little meow's of a kitten). We went to the animal shelter and adopted an 8 month old calico kitty. She gets to come home with us next Wednesday after she gets spayed. So now we are trying to figure out names for the new family member and we HOPE that Izzy gets along with her!! Pictures to come when we get her home!
