Is It Okay to Say Happy Birthday to Me?
Probably. It's my blog after all. I'll be 69 tomorrow. It's about time to begin counting backwards but then I remember saying that same thing at 39, 49, and 59.
My friend is planning on having us to dinner and baking a cake. Should be fun.
Our 3 little kittens have their blue eyes wide open, their bat ears standing up, and their paws into everything. We'll have them for another 3 or 4 weeks before they go on to their new homes (I hope). I'll have the momma kitty spayed somehow. The last time this happened, I took the momma and kittens to the no-kill shelter. She isn't my cat but she doesn't seem to be anyone else's so it should be my decision.
My friend Dawn (same one who's cooking the dinner) and I went to see Carol today. It was too painful to write about now. Maybe later or maybe not. She wants to see me but it makes her feel worse instead of better. I signed yet another directive since Carol isn't capable now of doing it for herself.
Elcie's home from school and I'm waiting for the other two to show up. They should be racing in just about now. She's angry because she brought home work I don't understand. She wants to know how I got through high school. She yelled, I left the kitchen after telling her my high school days ended in 1955, I've never had occasion to use that kind of math, and her yelling at me doesn't help me remember where to start.
She'll get over it and so will I. The school year is winding down and we're all tired. She brought home a lesson the other day and said the teacher didn't understand what the lesson was about. The teacher is a mentor, has a Master's and she doesn't understand it but I'm supposed to? Something's wrong with that picture.
I think my internet just went down again so I'm going to copy this and paste it to Word which doesn't require the net to function. The modem looks fine but my gmail icon has a big exclamation point in the middle. I still haven't figured out why I can't view some pictures but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with Picasa somehow.
Speaking of email, I still haven't fixed the sidebar to show my email address. It's firstname.lastname@example.org if any of you don't have it and would like it. Haven't posted my picture either but I'll get to it eventually. Maybe.
I've fixed the makings for BLT's (with avocado) tonight. The girls are old enough to assemble their own. Spaghetti tomorrow (special request from Elcie and 3 yea votes from the rest of the crew). Elcie's two favorite meals are spaghetti and tuna glop. I could serve them on alternate days all week, every week and she'd never complain.
Update: I'm continuing this a little after 5:00 p.m. Girls home, everyone has eaten, and Elcie has forgiven me. She brought me one kitten at a time to pose for the pictures. It looks like I'll have to try a separate post for kitten #3 - it didn't come through here.
Hope by now most if not all of you are having a break from the rain and snow that's been affecting most of this country and Canada. Australia's enjoying autumn of course.
Thanks to all for the comments. Please understand I'm reading them all even if I don't respond personally.
Take care everyone.
