Penny has a fit

Okay we have positively spoiled our cat. Well the thing is we concentrate all our energies on her and she knows she is the queen of all things. She is not a fan of air conditioning, even though she
has semi long hair for a cat.

Now when she doesn't get what she wants she throws herself down on the floor (like a two year old) and howls. Can you just imagine?

I was upstairs making the bed when she decided it was time for a treat. She was further aggravated to realize I was not down here to witness her nonsense so she stopped her screaming..walked up the stairs and into the calm as can be and when she saw me
she started her routine was hilarious.

So the air conditioning thing..she prefers to sit outside in a sunbeam so we have to lock the front door and allow her to rest out there. I did that one day and forgot the screen door in
the back was locked so hubby and young son were trying to figure out how to get in..unfortunately the only window unlocked was the one where the window box is. They argued about who would climb in..poor hubby a ladder and climbed in the window, over the window box and over the leather couch..he was furious when I got home..some people just don't like to try something different.

This morning she thought it would be nice if I got up at six. So here I sit, coffee in hand waiting for the paper to be delivered. Maybe tomorrow I'll try tough love.

Is it just me?

I guess it maybe just me but how come there are so many cheats and fakers in the world.

Four years ago I had an accident in my oldest son's car. No one in my car was was just a

fender bender, but the operator of the car I "bumped" into received a huge settlement and now,

four years later, after settling another "case" her mother is suing me and the insurance company

suggests I should get my own attorney in case the settlement is over 100,000 dollars..are you

kidding me? One hundred freakin thousand dollars. We could lose our house. Just so people

don't have to get real jobs and want to live off the backs of others. Excuse me for ranting but I

am truly sick over this and can't believe this is poor son, out of the goodness of

his heart lets me borrow a car because it was larger then mine and this happens..I don't care

about the money as much as the duplicity. What happened to Karma? What happened to tell

the truth..maybe it is just me. Is it really just me?

The day after a holliday weekend

How does your house look today? Like a herd of rampaging elephants has run through it? Like the ghost with little white pieces of paper (think confetti) dropped stuff all over your rugs..As you look in the fridge and freezer...nothing left to eat? Welcome to my world.

Out of guilt we had two cookouts and attended one...the one we went to was wonderful...everything tasted especially good...seemed to look more was so great.
When it's your house all you do is run and even though everything seemed to vanish I get so worried that I don't even seem to taste anything...but it seemed a good time was had by all.

People want to come to our house because of the in ground pool...Today...I say fill it in and plant least I'll make sure no one pee's or poop's on them...
