Each and every time we decide to go to go on a walk, he decides that he needs to go along. I know weird. It doesn't matter how far we are going. If it is just around the block, or for a few miles. He wants to go. If I don't let him, he is one pissed off cat. And you will know it.
The other weird thing about the cat is that he won't let me pick him up and carry him if it has been to long of a walk, or put him in the stroller with Kyle. He has to do it all by himself. So occasionally he lays down rests for a while, then bounds up to and past us, and then collapses again.
The last weird thing about this cat is that when he is on the walk, and starts to get hot. He starts panting. Yes that's right panting like a dog. Its pretty funny to see. I wish I had a photo to share with you. Maybe one day I'll remember to bring a camera along.
Hope you all had a great Wednesday. And that you are enjoying my crazy cat stories.

So another car is now in the left lane beside me, so he couldn't get over. So just to spite him I decide to slow down even more. At this point I was probably doing forty. A merging lane pops up on the right hand side, and what does this idiot do, he gets in the right lane and over takes me illegally. These people really drive me nuts.
So Mr Blue Saab driver, if you just happen to read my blog, be more courteous you would have gotten to you destination faster. Don't ride on my bumper, it will piss me off and I will do all I can to piss you off too.

OK I will give you some background. I went to an adult store with one of my friends whose husband is coming home for mid tour soon. We see this stripper pole, think it would be fun to try out, and maybe learn a new skill while our husbands are gone. So we pick it up.
Last night my friend (different friend) and her husband (he is currently home, but will be deploying in a few weeks) come over for margarita Wednesday. He embarrasses very easily. Doesn't even want to think about us owning a stripper pole. Well after a few margaritas we decided to set it up. So funny he wouldn't even look at it. We were trying to get him to dance around it, but being the party pooper he wouldn't. Well anyway I went to put it away this morning, the ceiling became stuck to the top of the pole, and a little bit came down with it. Crazy.
I hope you all had just as great of a Margarita Wednesday as we did.

I have almost come to the conclusion that maybe I should stop showering all together. Because if he's not playing peak a boo with the shower curtain. He is escaping out the front door and down the street. Yes he has done this twice now. He can open the dead lock on the door, and get past the Kiddie proof thing on the handle too.
This is yet another reason that my hubby should come home from Iraq. I need to be able to shower in peace.

Since Kris left, I have redecorated Kyles room. He got new furniture. And he is truly sleeping in a big boy bed now. I know its big for a little one, but he loves it. He tosses and turns all night. I think that he may have gotten that from me. My Mum used to describe me as a windmill when I slept. Watching Kyle I now know what she means.
The only problem is that I am not looking forward to painting over the navy when we move out of here.

But the reason that I decided to do a post about the Olympics is what is with the swimmers swim suits. Have you noticed the really big white patches? It looks like they are tearing out sections of their suits. Is this what it happening? Why would they do this? These are supposed to be the most engineered suits in the would, and they are tearing out parts. It seems really strange to me.
Whatever that's my rant for the day. I hope your all enjoying the Olympics. And that you had a great Margarita Wednesday.

On another note, with my new obsession. It has stopped my shopping habit. Yes I know shocking. I haven't been to Target since I started this endeavor. And if you know me that is a real long time. I wouldn't be surprised if Target stock dropped over the past few days. So who knew that with your encouraging words over the past few days that this was my way of quitting. The only other advice that I got was from my husband. He said that I should go cold turkey. Yeah like that would happen.
Well I better sign off. My break time is over. Got to get back to the sweat shop.

So when I was over at Mck Mama's Blog, I noticed she has on one of those UGLY hospital gowns. And it dawns on me that she has been wearing these for the past two weeks that she has been in the hospital. Poor Girl. Not only is she dealing with problems with her unborn baby's heart. But she has to wear UGLY hospital gowns.
So since I can't do anything but pray for her unborn baby. I thought that I can send her a cute hospital gown. So I found the one that Tori was wearing. But it was $90. I can believe that. For a hospital gown. I might be cheap, but I think that's alot. Anyway I already have my mind set on sending her a "cute" hospital gown, I decide to make one.
So I load up Kyle in the car. Drive down to the hobby lobby, and end up choosing four different fabrics. So last night and today I have been making hospital gowns. Here are some pictures of the finished products. They still tie in the back like a real hospital gown, and they even come open at the shoulders but a button and some Velcro. I added a little ribbon around the rib cage/waist line (she is pregnant) to make it not look so much like a MUMU.
So because of reality TV I hope I will be able to brighten her day a little. So its not all that bad. I hope she likes them. And also if you know anyone in hospital, I will be happy to make some more. Just let me know.
I thought that it looked kinda girly. I know thats hard with a hospital gown.
And I just love greens and blues.
