Topic: how rude
oh, lordy be. Has it really been since February since I neglected the blog? OI. sorry, kids. The job turned brutal and I spent all my nights curled up in a fetal position trying to forget about my day job!
YAH, so anyway, I'm on vacation now. All is well.
Spent the past weekend at the Lighthouse Inn compound (see posts from last summer.) Gotta love the Stones and the Hainses for being so welcoming into their perfect Cape Cod world. Definitely makes me yearn for my summers in Wellfleet and Provincetown before the days of the mighty mortgage and all those responsibilities. I left the cats for three days and by their reception you would think I took off for a year. SOOOOOOO, so much has happened since the last blog. Remember my New Year's Eve promise not to ignore the blog for more than a week? FAILURE. Just couldn't get to it. And it's not like I didn't care about the people who read it, I was just DONE after days at work and couldn't get to it. But my time at the ocean (it always refreshes me) has made me feel so much better. So here is a quick recap of the past 6 monbths:
Jess and Dave were living with my parents til the beginning of June. We loved having them but while they were with us their awesome black lab Kobie died. We loved her and we feel for her sister Booda, who is now in her new house with her mom and dad.
Valerie and Dan, my sister and future brother in law, continue to plan their wedding. Check it out at www.danandvalerie.com They are in the process of buying a house. Its weird to see them go through that when basically I was predestined to buy the house I have: don't get me wrong- I love my house but it is fun to imagine actually CHOOSING what you want.
Speaking of which, I ripped out my sunroom ceiling last week. Gonna put in a vaulted ceiling once the electrician comes in 3 weeks. There's always something. Val and Dan are looking at a (mostly) finished house. Sometimes you don't know how good you've got it. I'm just sayin'...
Anyway, in other news, did I mention that Junior (the aforementioned in the blog but possibly not named) cat has a possible brain tumor that is encouraging his aggressiveness? Poor bubba. He follows me around like a shadow, can't see, is afraid of everyhing, and attacks when scared. Yes, he's the cat that attacked at my Xmas party, but that was just the first sign that there was something wrong. Junie has always been the most loveable of the kittens (phoebe's) and for him to become aggressive was so weird. But it has intensified (at times- at other times he is the sweet junie of old) But I love him still regardless of the fact that he tore apart my nose last week. I will keep him safe until his time. That is my job.
What else? I can't remember at the moment. I'll be back in fewer than six months!!!!
