Here I am

Can you believe it's almost September? Time flies when you're working and having fun.

I like my job. There's been a very small learning curve and I think I've mastered it. I can't really talk about where I work, but let's just say it's interesting and I had forgotten what a pleasure it was to work with a bunch of women. The pleasure part, that's totally a joke. There's lots of gossip, dirty looks at various persons, and whispers behind the hand. I think we might need spankings and timeouts. Classes in how to treat the public are also needed.

It took a full week for the girl there the longest to get the pecking order worked out. She's not happy with the order, but she started it, not me. I'm an old fart and won't be walked on.

I haven't done any crafting lately. At most, I get home from work and do as little as possible before bedtime. I have been reading, but then again, I'm always reading.

Mom is doing well. At least that's what she tells me. I don't get to see her much, but do try to check on her everyday. She goes for her checkup next week.

I hope everyone is doing well and I hope to catch up on everybody very soon.

Have a fit and fall in it

My ISP has been an OOPS lately. I hope they're truly fixed this time.

Let's see...oh yes.

DH took the local nephew fishing last Saturday and this is what the kiddo caught.A whopping 10 pound Bluecat. The boy said this fish tasted better than any he's ever had before.

Mom's home and recovering nicely. She had a doctor's appointment to get her staples out yesterday and the doc was pleased with her knee and her progress. Now she starts physical therapy.

Honey moves the kittens daily it seems. She brings them around to eat and may or may not leave them overnight. She's beginning to wean them.

We enjoy them when they're here. Never ending entertainment out of those three.

Now for the best news of all. After 8 months and innumerable job applications, (squeeee!) I finally got a job. I start Monday and I can't wait.

Easy Come, Easy Go

Would you believe that this mess was actually put away earlier today? Then I decided to make jam and clean out the fridge.Honey moved the kittens. Mr. Fuzz was acting ugly so I don't blame her, but I do miss them. Easy come, easy go.

Mom update. Here's a picture of the back of her little legs. She's going to kill me, but I'll take it. Notice how much straighter the leg on the right is. It was as bowed as the left leg. Today her bruises have started showing up. Poor thing. The side of her knee is black and blue. I take pictures so she can see what I'm talking about when I tell her her knee pits are purple.

She's not having a good day. She got too hot sitting on the patio yesterday and was sick last evening. She's been laying down more today and hopefully she'll feel better soon. As for walking, she's moving right along.

I think I'll go work on a new header and see about getting July out of here.

Mom update

Mom had her knee surgery on 8/3 and came through it with flying colors. She did so well in fact that the doctor sent her home yesterday (8/4).

She's making a million miles up and down my hallway and doing really well. I'm sure I'm smothering her, but soon she can go home and I'll be around if she needs me and not doing so much hovering.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Wednesday.

Cats and a bag

Thank you for the kind words regarding Tucker. The backyard seems very empty. Onward and upward. It's better today.

On that note, these little kitties are endless entertainment right now. This kitten is being adopted by my mom. She's named him Frady. It's funny because he's the most adventurous and not frady-cat of the whole bunch. Cute name though. These two are a little more timid and hang out close to Honey or hide behind the dog house. DH named the little tabby Stripes. That's his favorite of the three. The other one is Grumpy. He's got an attitude and it's not a pleasant one.
Mom's first knee surgery is Monday. I can't believe it's so close to time. Here's her snazzy red walker fitted out with a walker bag. You know a girl has to have a way to carry her Diet Dr. Pepper, book, and grabber thing. Now she can do it in style. It has two outside pockets and is big on the inside. The straps are outfitted with snaps. Super easy to make.

That's all I've got for now. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday.
