Just Checking In

Hello Readers (all six of you), I just felt like checking in.  I realized it had been nearly a year since I’d last posted here and what a sad post it was!  I thought I should at least pop in and let you all know I’m still alive and well.  I’ve thought about posting many times, and it just never seemed right. I’m just never sure what to do with this space (I could never really commit to the whole food blog thing).  Sometimes I think of something that was once totally blog-worthy, and now I just think ‘who cares’?

Anyway, so many things have happened in the past year or so and I’d love to share them all with you – just to document it, to utilize the space and to do a little writing.  It feels good to just write for fun.  Perhaps I’ll just turn this thing back into a personal blog, where I post too many pictures of my cats and ramble on about my boring life.  We’ll see..

Anyway, I promise you can expect more from me in the not too distant future (certainly withing the next year)!

Happy Birthday, Spaz

My Spazzy Girl, today you would have been 12 years old.  We lost you about a month ago, and we still miss you and think about you every day.  You came into my life at a time when I really needed a friend and you were the best furry little friend a girl could ever ask for.  Everyone who ever met you fell in love with you – even some non-cat people.  You’d win them over with your easygoing, affectionate nature and sense of humor  You were the only cat I’ve ever met with a sense of humor.  We could pick on you and you would come running back for more –  as if you were in on the joke.  Even at the end, when you were sick, you always just seemed so happy and always wanted to be with the people.

We all miss you like crazy – even Nemo, who’s been put on a proper diet now that you’re gone.  I miss having you next to me all the time, keeping me company while I’m at work, and your creepy “weird breathing” that you did when you were happy.  I miss having you curl up next to me while I nap, and I even miss having you wake me up every morning at the crack of dawn.

RIP my SweetFace, my Lady, my CrazyPants… you’ll always hold a very special place in our hearts.

Love Always,


My Favorite Mug

Why yes, that is picture of a couple of fornicating unicorns on my coffee mug, and a rainbow of course!  I think that’s where rainbows come from… I should teach science.

How can you not look at this mug and smile?  Kevin got if for me for Christmas, and now I drink from it on most days.  I find it’s really the best way to start the day.  Kevin bought it from Threadless, but it looks like they’re all sold out :(  However, there are still T-shirts and wall art available in this print.  Don’t you want this hanging in your living room?
