First of all I want to say Congratulations to McK Mama and her family, on the birth of their beautiful baby boy. Who seems to have no heart issues. What great news.

Secondly I would like to thank her for giving me a shout out on her blog, about my hospital gowns. And Can I say WOW!!! Because of her shout out yesterday I received almost 3000 hits. That's crazy. I am already at almost a 1000 today. She has the best followers. Thank you all for your kind comments about my hospital gowns. I even sold a few more yesterday.

So I guess there's only one more thing to say, and that's Happy Halloween!!!! I will post picture of our trick or treating adventures tomorrow.

Fall is almost over.

So this week I have come to the conclusion that fall is almost over here in the Rockies. We had our first measurable snow fall. We have been breaking out coats. I turned on the heat ( I feel totally justified it snowed). And I also broke out the humidifiers.

The house has been shocking me every time I touch a light switch, so I decided that It was time to break them out. The small one in my bedroom, is kinda noisy. I don't remember this from last year. It doesn't really bother me, as I like noise when I sleep. I fall asleep with the TV on. This really bugs my husband when he is home. Well this morning I discovered that the noise that the humidifier makes is a great one. It sounded like rain on the roof top. I love this sound. I always sleep better when it is raining outside, and you can hear the rain. So I have decided that I am probably going to have a very good nights sleep this winter, with my fake pitter patter of rain drops. I love it.

I hope you all had a great weekend. And enjoy the rest of fall as its almost over. (well at least it is in my neck of the woods)

Wordless Wednessday

This is what I woke up to this morning. Does Mother Nature know that its still October?

So I thought that I would post something funny for our 100th post. Kris and I 4 years ago, went out to Dave and Busters. We sat in one of those little booth things, had our pictures taken. And they morphed together our facial features to see what our future son would look like. Yesterday I found the little print out. We always thought that it looked Hilarious. And we prayed that our real son wouldn't look like this. So what do you think? Does Kyle look like this?

Sign on my back

Do I have a sign on my back saying if your crazy I would Love to talk with you?

This happens to me anywhere I go. Crazy people come up to me and start crazy conversations. Many of my friends wonder how that happens to me, and I am now beginning to have that same idea.

Why am I blogging about this you ask. Well the other day I ventured off post, and to a post office I had never used before. It was close to a store that I wanted to go shopping at. Well the post office guy, was super friendly. I had no wait in line. This never happens to me at the post office. Kyle was behaving. Everything seemed to be going my way.

I let kyle push the buttons so the automatic doors would open. He thought this was great. The lady that was coming out right behind us, commented on how friendly everyone was in there, I agreed. This is where the normal conversation ends.

We went from everyday chit chat, to it is so hard for people in America to get a Nobel prize, because we don't think about world views enough. To She can't believe what has happened in Iraq and Afghanistan. How they don't want us there, and no ones life in Iraq is at all better than what it was before we started the war. This I had to disagree with. She wanted to know why we weren't rebuilding schools. Um Hello? We have been doing that for years now. I asked her if she thought that the Iraqi people would have been better off with Saddam still in charge. She said YES. Boy did she choose the wrong person to have this conversation with. I explained my opinions on the topic. She rebutted by saying what about the Kids that we have been bombing in Afghanistan. Um two different topics. But I am sure that we didn't go out and look for little kids to bomb, as she was suggesting.

Even better the conversation suddenly changed to politics. This was doomed from the beginning. She was equating McCain with Bush. And then calling Sarah Palin uneducated. And how could she make jokes about old people. As this woman told me she was 56 and was in that category. How would she treat older people if she was in office. Because I am sure in this crazy woman's mind that makes Palin hate all old people. Thankfully the crazy lady was getting the picture that I wasn't going to agree with her, just because she wanted me too. We also got into the topic of the economy.She blames the whole mess on Bush. Nothing to do with the fact that Americans spent beyond there means at all. Then she left in a huff.

Why do people like this choose my to have these sorts of conversation? How can I cut people off, and be on my way before these sorts of conversations start? How can I get rid of the sign on my back? Does this happen to anyone else apart from me?

Crazy Cat Wednesdays

OK so I am back to crazy cat Wednesdays. I know I haven't written one in the past two weeks. And I am truly sorry for that. H you won't have to give me grief this week about it.

So a couple of weeks after Crazy Cats toe amputation healed, he started going out side once more. This made him a really happy cat. Until one night.

I was home coloring my hair, Kris was out in the Field, and Kyle was asleep in his crib up stairs. Ding Dong. The door bell rings. I look at the clock 10 pm. That's really weird. I think to myself. Who would be ringing my doorbell at this hour.

A woman that I didn't recognise. holding something about the size of a cat wrapped up in a towel. She asks me if I own a cat. My heart sinks. Thinking that she hit Crazy cat with her car.

Boy was I wrong.

I say yes, and then she proceeds to tell me that our cats got into a fight. Then lifts up the towel, and shows me her cats wound. No I don't have a photo of it, so you don't have to worry about seeing that. But there is a flap of fur missing about the size of my palm. part was still attached, but it looked really bad.

My first thoughts were oh my gosh. What are you doing on my doorstep, why aren't you on your way to the vets? But she continues to stand there and tell me the story.

Her cat who is 14 years old was asleep in its cage, in her garage, that she keeps cracked, so it can go out potty. My cat wanders in and corners her cat and by the look of this wound is trying to kill her cat. Oh and by the way her cat is declawed, so it had no way of defending itself.

I tell the woman to get going to the vet, and that I was very sorry, and that she should bring me the bill (I found out later, that it is Colorado law that you pay for all damage that your pets inflict on others. But that's not why I did it. I felt like it was the right thing to do). Little did I know that it would cost over $700.00. That was a nice expense to tell Kris about when he got out of the field. Crazy Cats amputation didn't even cost that much.

I decide to go out side into the neighborhood to find Crazy Cat, and bring him inside. So I could check him out myself, and so he couldn't get into more trouble. Well the son of a gun didn't even have a scratch on him. Or should I say bit mark, since the other cat didn't have claws.

So I write her a check a few days later, apologise and pray that it is the end of the saga.

About a week later I am walking Bella, with Kyle and Kris thru our neighborhood. She is doing the same with her dog. And what happens, the dogs are sniffy each other, her dog nips a little, and Bella goes in for a bite on the nose. Thank goodness I see this happen, and am able to pull her back a little, so that dog didn't get the full force of my 150lbs dog. It did get a gash against its nose. I couldn't believe it. The same woman. I thing my pets were sensing some sort of evil coming off of her. Thankfully I wasn't anything serious, and we didn't have to see her much longer, as we moved a few months later.

I was nervous when we moved back into this neighborhood. She was still here, but moved about a month after we moved back in. Lets just hope that our paths don't cross again.

Well if you stuck with me thru that whole story, your a trooper. I promise that next weeks Crazy Cat Wednesday won't be as long. And have a wonderful Wednesday. Maybe even have a Margarita, in celebration that we have made it to hump day.
