Singletons are People, Too #elfBelieve

Singletons are people, too! Why should kids have all the fun?

When I was a kid way back when, a elf visited me one year. I'm talking about back in the '70s. His name was Elfie, he left me lovely notes and was a great show-and-tell topic at school.

Life of a Cat Mom: Sucking Up Cat Pee from the Bathroom Floor at 5 a.m.

My Sweet, Innocent Cat China Napping on the Kitchen Table.

Sucking up cat pee with a syringe off my guest bathroom floor at 5 a.m. isn’t exactly how I planned to begin my day but that’s where this story begins. My little gray tabby, a new addition to my home, sat outside the bathroom watching me cleaning up the mess. Her tail flip-flopped from side to side while wearing a Cheshire grin. If she had fingers I’m pretty sure she’d be flipping me the bird with both paws.

Is there a Conspiracy to Prevent My Time from Marching On?

Just a few of my watches with dead batteries.
Is there a conspiracy to prevent my time from marching on?  I love watches. A watch featuring Snoopy playing tennis with a yellow ball racing around as the second hand was my first timepiece, a Christmas gift one year when I was a kid. Although I have a thing for the time-keeping wrist jewelry I haven't worn a watch in about 3 months because...I can't find a battery.

Sarasota's Cat Depot Arranged a Purr-fect Event with "Cat Daddy" Jackson Galaxy

Jackson Galaxy Signs His "Cat Daddy" Books Following His Speaking
Engagement in Sarasota, Fla., Benefiting The Cat Depot, Sept. 14, 2013
Ever since I was a kid I knew I was an animal person and my world was crushed when my cousins told me a dog was man's best friend. I reasoned a cat must be a woman's best friend but they corrected me in saying, "No, a diamond is a woman's best friend."

Hand Up or Hand Out? Should Organizations Work for Donations?

Should People Need to Work for their Donations?
Running in and out of Walmart this morning I was almost tackled by players of a little league football team. About a dozen had their little hands gripping their helmets and asking if I wanted to donate to their league. Good thing I've been working out to Shaun T's INSANITY Workout because I used my football feet to run away without dropping a penny.

Do I Feel Like Iron Woman after an Iron IV?

Drawing of My IV Tree - That Thing with Wings is Placed in My Hand to Let the Iron In
Do I feel like iron woman after an iron IV? No, not really. 

The downside of avoiding annual physical exams for oh, let's say a decade or so, is eventually facing the "what if" scenarios. What if that lump is cancerous? OMG, is that a leprosy rash? What if that cough is really the beginning of that fatal cough in Stephen King's The Stand?

"Cat Daddy" Jackson Galaxy will be in Sarasota, Fla., Sept. 14, 2013

Jackson Galaxy, "Cat Daddy" Will be in Sarasota, Fla., September 14, 2013
I'm two cats shy of being the single, crazy cat lady but that isn't stopping me from attending the lecture and book signing by Cat Daddy himself, Jackson Galaxy. The Cat Depot is arranging his Sept. 14, 2013, visit to the Hyatt Regency Sarasota.
