We will be needing a new secretary if this keeps up! Of course, this is wordy Wednesday!! We haven't been blogging on a regular basis! Mouses!
Mommy and I watched movies on the long holiday weekend. It has been hot and humid lately. Yesterday Mommy had to go downtown and it was lovely out, she said. A little rainy looking today, but you know weather. It can change whenever it wants to! At least it is cooler and not as humid out! Mommy said she can get back to her coffee drinking! It was just too yucky out for her to want any the last week! Yesterday was a coffee day, and so is today.
Last night Mommy fell to sleep in her office chair. I had to meow and paw at her forever to get her to put her jammies on and go to bed. Finally happened around three dark o'clock! What we do to protect our pets! Things need to be organized and run smoothly! Mouses again!
Friday we think Barb is coming over.
And the worst news? We need help. Management says we need to get rid of BOXES! I really and truly need a cat tree or perch or something! We can't have boxes!! WE CAN'T HAVE BOXES! Anyone have a spare perch or cat tree???? This is serious!!
Well, Mouses! I think I am ready for lots of scritchies and naps today....
And yes, before we forget, today is Mommy's brother's birthday (the one that passed over the Bridge this spring). And yes, yes, it is
Just a quick note for those of you who may be wondering. Mommy has been very busy and our internets went down after we got a new cable tv dvr installed cause the old one wasn't working. I don't count the "busy", but the internet downs have been real. No internets, no blogs, no email, no nothing! We have had the internets guy in and we needed a new modem. Which we now have. He also added wi-fi to our plain and simple Kindle, and now Mommy can't figure how to download books from the library again. Mouses! She is not good without her books.
The bug guys are coming, and Mommy is just about ready for them (she cleaned before the internets guy came, so there is not much to do).
So we may be back on Friday. Repeat may. Who knows what will happen next!
Mommy's sister survived the surgery and is doing pretty good. She is a very strong lady for being in her mid 70's, and has a very strong faith, herself, so she thanks our Heavenly Father for the chance to still be here, although she is ready to go to Heaven any time she is called, and she says thanks all for the prayers and kind thoughts.
Very late posting. Sorry. We have over 300 blog entries to read and catch up on! We really haven't been on the computer a lot this week because Mommy's been busy and there has been some family stuff (with her sister) and now it is very humid again and Mommy gets hot facing the computer instead of the rest of the room. Humans! Do you believe all the excuses?
Yes, it is humid again, and very hot, so I at least have Mommy all day, as she says she doesn't want to go out in the yucky weather. Fine for me. I get extra scritchies and Furminating! It is sposed to be extra humid all weekend, so Mommy is definitely staying home! Next week is sposed to be cooler and less humid, and that means open windows for me, and I hope Mommy stays home, too, to enjoy the window whiffies!
As for our food, my Chewy box will be mailed out the end of next week, and Mommy has some good foodies thanks to our friends on the internets. Thank you, thank you! We have FISH! Mommy said the spinach has to come maybe next week. She didn't get a lot of foodies, but enough to get by for a little while. Although I have more kitty litter than she has bathroom tissue! MOL THAT wasn't on the list she had!
Have a wonderful weekend, and if you are in the hots, stay as cool as possible and drink lots of water!

Mommy has a request for you all. But not for her. One of her sisters is having an operation Tuesday morning because she has bladder cancer, so please we need the power of the paw for her. Please keep her in your prayers and kind thoughts. Her husband died of cancer a few months ago, and her children and grandchildren really want her to stick around. Especially her little Molly. That's her sweet little dachshund. Molly already really misses her daddy and we don't want her to lose her mommy, too. Thank you for your help!
Back to Easy Sunday after a full week: We saw Barb this week, and Mommy did a med check at the clinic (a new prescription is working out--yea!) and, oh, yes, Mommy had one of her-grains. And it was a very very bad one. But it meant a whole day of naps, and as you all know, naps are good. I let her sleep and only checked on her now and again, and by evening she was lots better. She did make an effort to make sure I had foodies and waters and stuff. And that was so special, cause she was really hurtie.
So we weren't around much, and haven't read any blogs. We'll try to catch up now.
It's supposed to be less humid this week, and Mommy has to go to WallyWorld for her insulins. And some very generous and kind peoples sent us green papers so she could get some foodies. Thank you. I think she was getting sick of chicken. Or should I say that? Waffles would have been in heaven if he visited last week. Lots and lots of chicken around here! I think they call that "hitting the sales" we had so much!
So thank you soooooo much for helping Mommy with her foodies! It is soooooo important for her to eat her foodies. Unlike others who can not eat (humans are weird sometimes, aren't they?) once in a while, diabetics have to maintain their "levels", and take their insulins and eat proper foodies. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! She kept saying all her bills were paid, but there wasn't much left over for groceries at all for August. Maybe that's why she had a her-grain. She was kinda worried. So now she can get some other foodies. Hamm, maybe? Or FISHIES! Yum! Spinach for salads! Yummy, yummy! Yes, I like spinach!!
That's about all. A full week, but not really that busy. I did get some awesome massages and lots of Furminator time ( I love my Furminator!), and lots of good nappies (and lots of chicken smells around here-MOL!).
Keep cool and have a good Easy and rest of the week, and please keep Mommy's request for her sister in your hearts.
Lots of good and bad news.
Our cable tv doesn't work. The cable company is shipping us a new "box" and a new remote. This saves Mommy from having to pay for installation. Bad news again? I have to suffer from her trying to "install" by herself. I think I will quickly disappear when she starts. I might (might? who are we kidding! Will) like the box the box comes in! So now Mommy has lost all the movies she "dvr-ed". Good news for that? She's watching Netflix. New different movies! And while she mourns the loss of her EastEnders, and all the movies she had wanted to watch on the dvr, she has to watch Netflix on the computer. And she has to sit in the office chair. Which leaves the comfy chair for me. Which just happens to be within scritchie reach for mommy and me.
Whew! Life gives us a lot of ups and downs fast, huh!
We are still waiting to get some foodies for Mommy. Tomorrow Barb is taking her to a food shelf. But we still need help. Please, somebody? Diabetics need foods as well as insulin to maintain their "levels". And lives.
Tuesday she has a "med check" at the clinic. This is normal. She's on some new meds and they need to see how they are working. Other than "expensively" Mommy says fine. The insurance doesn't pay for much of this, and WallyWorld can't help. Sometime this week she has to go to WallyWorld and get her inexpensive insulin again. Another of the reasons she isn't spending money on food. But those new meds are something more she has to pay for.
More nice news: someone very kind is giving Mommy a used printer so she can print coupons and stuff. Oh, goodie. More "installation"! Kitty is gone for that!
Oh, and really nice news? I got an awesome massage this morning! Mommy is pretty cool, don't you agree?
I am taking the rest of the day off. It is Easy Sunday after all! Bring on the movies, Mommy! (and lots of scritchies)
Okay. I am thankful the internets now work! Mommy gave up this morning on both Foxfire and Internet Explorer and said it was our "cable provider"! She got up extra early, too, and it's her lunchtime now! She waited all morning! Well, okay, she read, Furminated me, and did other stuff.
My Chewy box is about three weeks from now, but I have plenty of foodies, so that's no problem. But Mommy doesn't have enough green papers for her foodies. We don't qualify for Medicaid or Senior NAPS (what a funny word--it means boxes of peoples food for older peoples, not sleep), and food shelves only give out enough foodies for a few days. And you are only allowed to go once a month. If somebody could help us, that would be something we could be VERY thankful for! Mommy paid all the bills she could and didn't have enough for foodies. And her check doesn't come till around the same time my Chewy box does.
Oh, yah, our a/c coolie thingy still isn't fixed (long waiting list), but the next several days are sposed to be a lot less humid and more comfy. Hooray. I love sleeping by an open window! That is a good thing to be thankful for!
If someone can help us, Mommy would be appreciative and I might get extra Furminator time.
Thanks, if you can help. Love, if you can or can't help, either way. Pizza? We wish! MOL!
Happy Easy Sunday. Yup. Mommy was so easy she slept in. She doesn't do that that late unless she's ill, mostly. So my brekkie was late, late, late. And I was starving. All I had was water.I was at death's door! So I jumped up on her chest and sniffed her face and did some biscuits on her and settled down to make a loaf on her. She woke up and started to pet me. It was the soft lovey kind of pet. I enjoyed it for a bit. Yes, I did! Unusual for me, but it was kinda nice. But then I remembered I was at death's door, and sang the song of my people and jumped down. When she didn't get up, I jumped on her again. She finally got the hint! Finally I can get back to my Easy Sunday.
And my Mommy wasn't sick.
Take it easy!
And it is sposed to be very hot and muggy. Blahhh!
Not a bad way to stay cool! More fan, Mommy!
Mommy closed the blinds all the way in the living room (except for the missing slat) because we get the morning sun, and yes, it did help keep us cool!
She took one of her pain pills yesterday evening and it was hard to wake her up this morning. Oh, she was awake, just enjoying the painless-ness. As you know, she has the arthur-itis, and it really really bothered her yesterday, and the doctor gave her pain pills. He doesn't want her to have corti-something shots (thanks a lot. Mommy already gives herself two insulin shots a day) because they raise her glucose levels. So, if the pain is mild, she takes what she calls TargetTylonol, over the counter stuff. But yesterday it was really really bad, so she took a pain pill. She was so relaxed this morning after a comfy night with little pain I really had to work hard to convince her to get up. And when she did finally, she went to sit on the recliner. I jumped up on her lap (I am NOT a lap cat) and kept up the song of my people until she got up again and fed me. THEN she took her levels and took her pills and gave herself her shot and THEN she made her coffee and made her own brekkie.
And the next thing? She got out the Furminator! Nice to lose some furs in this weather plus the thing makes me tingle all over like scritchies do!
Do I have her trained or what? Well, to be purrfectly honest, I usually am polite and wait for her to take her levels and her pills and give herself her shot before I demand my brekkie. Gotta keep her healthy so she DOES feed me and give me water! But she didn't get up for hours and hours [Mom: 7:30?? That's my usual time!]
Keep cool this weekend. If you are outside, find some good shady spots! And drink lots of water even if you are indoors enjoying the a/c coolie thing. Water is good for your insides! Come on, you've heard that before on the blogs! And peoples, YOU drink lots of water, too. Alcohol does NOT count! MOL!
