It has been… a while!

Well, I bet some of you thought I had given up my little blog… and to be honest… I thought I had too… Sad, but my life has been crazy for MONTHS!!! Between kitties, the holidays, women’s tea,  projects at home, projects at work, travel, family obligations … things had gotten a little out of control! So much so, that just a few weeks ago Mike and I talked about how nice it would be to just sit still… we have been going non-stop since mid February and are really needing some time off… from EVERYTHING!

Now with all that said… I do have tons of photos of our many projects and adventures…
Stick around… I have lots to share!

Women’s Tea
Let’s start with the Women’s Tea… this was our table …
I think we had the tallest center piece in the room!

Six Months Ago…

2015-05-30 21.10.29



Six months ago five little tiny fur balls were born… Two came to live with us… and WE haven’t been the same since! WOW, they have GROWN so much and continue to push the limits. Heck, just this past Saturday, Ponch and Jon where playing in/with a box in the dining room (wood floor) and somehow Ponch took a tumble IN the box down the steps to the basement… While we don’t have any proof, we are pretty sure that Jon pushed the box over the edge! Ponch was a little dizzy at the bottom as he climbed out of the box, Jon was quite proud of himself! All I can say is, I’m glad they have kitty insurance!



2015-09-12 19.53.33They both love to nap in the oddest positions… Jon’s favorite is on his tummy with both back legs straight our behind him! Ponch likes to sleep right next to my face at night… try waking up to the alarm clock at 4:40 AM and get a furry paw in the eye!

The two of them got ‘fixed’ a few weeks ago and they really put it on thick for the ladies at the vet. They just LOVED them… they sent them home with little certificates of bravery… what a HOOT! The vet tech said we would need to keep them calm for four to ten DAYS…YEAH!! we got them home and it wasn’t an hour and they where wrestling in the floor and jumping on the scratching post… 4 days… we didn’t make it 4 HOURS!!

I hope things calm down with them… I’m not sure how much more this ol’ lady can take!!

Most of the pictures I take of them end up looking like this… They move so darn FAST!!
I have to remind them all the time they have geriatric parents and to take it easy on us!!
(for the record… we wouldn’t trade them for anything!)

a little Second Shift Love

2015-08-19 20.43.332015-08-19 20.43.48Just a quick post today…

I was working with the Cricut this week after work to make a birthday card and gift (that I will post later… after the gift is given!) and had an idea that I needed to let my second shift hubby know that I love him when he leaves for work… It’s been on my mind for a while now… I’m rarely home when he leaves for work… Who am I kidding… I’m hardly EVER home when he leaves in the afternoon!

I get to talk to him on the phone (if he’s not to busy) and we text when we can… So except for the occasional lunch/dinner ‘dates’ while one of us is at work or on the weekends, we don’t get to spend a lot of time together. After a career in the Navy, we got used to prioritizing what we talked about WHEN we did get to talk… After 20 years of marriage… it seems to be working!!

So, I cut this out of a few scraps of vinyl I had in the craft room and installed it on the  back door, so he can see it every time he heads out to work, even if I’m not there… He’ll know that I love him!!
