D minus 1

April 25th, 2007 at 08:35 pm

Tomorrow I write the check for $250 for my little girl's braces. I wish I could have said that I had it all saved up, but I don't. I'll be stealing from Peter to pay Paul.

My son brought home a little kitten. He named him Lily, until I noticed he was really a Charley. Poor baby was so starved it chased my mean cat away from the food while she was eating. My Jack Russel loves him. My Aussie just ignores him. I think he is growing on the other cats. He was a little shy at first until the Jack Russell crawled towards him on his belly and put his nose down with the kitten's nose. Now they are fast friends. Funny how animals are.

I got $27 from turning in my cans and $22.10 from Treasure Trooper. It bought groceries. With that, and what I have in the fridge, it will have to do until I get paid again in two weeks. I don't think I'll do Treasure Trooper again.

I'm just so tired of worrying about paying the bills. The new kitten and the flowers in the garden have really cheered me up. Gardening and playing with baby kittens will cheer just about anyone up I guess.

As my mom always said, "Tomorrow is a brand new day and you get to start all over."

    What a very fortunate kitty he is! I love stories like this.

    A quick but funny story on my Flame Point Siamese cat who was shot at close range with a 22 short 3 weeks ago:

    He is recovering very nicely, so well in fact that this morning he finally figured out how to pull the box fan partially out of the large kitchen window, push the pieces of wood on either side of the fan(which was holding it in place) and bail out through the small open space he had created, plus push the screening out of the window on his way out. Oh I forgot to add that he figured out how to turn off the fan to start with.

    If I had not walked out of the garage at about 6:00 this morning in time to see a pair of furry white hindquarters and a white tail flipped high in the air as he bailed out, I would not have believed it. This cat is seriously smart.
