Cats-Be-Gone, Jammy Days, & Phone Interviews
Yes, it may be true...
I believe our cats are gone?!
We may have one or two 'smarter' ones,
but there are still a few cages out.
Luckily, we didn't really have to watch them get caught!
The guy came, put out the cages, set the traps, & left.
The cats ventured into the cages for food, the door shut,
the guy came back & took them away!
This week, I am taking our kitty to the Vet.
He has had a wound on his neck for some time.
It heals up almost all the way, the fur grows back,
then he itches at it, & we start all over again!?
So - before he is free to go & enjoy the great outdoors again,
I need to get him in & have it wrapped or something?
THEN he can enjoy going in & out of the house again!
So - whew?! Enough with the cat issues already?!
I am so done with it all!
Last weekend, our daughter had a little Retreat overnight at church,
so Dave & I ended up going out to see "The Pursuit of Happyness"
It's a very well done movie, but I think we could have rented it...
if we would have gone when it first came out - I may feel differently,
but by now - I knew the entire story - so there was nothing new to learn?!
I saw the guy on Oprah & had read all about the true story & all...
I had to reluctantly agree that we should have gone to see "Deja Vu"... oh well!?
Still - I plan on seeing We Are Marshall - with or without him!
I may take my little one out of school early & we can go see it together!
Saturday, after lazing around in the morning (kidless!),
My Honey went to a friends, & I went to get Kaye from her retreat.
We swung by my sister-in-laws to pick up Season One of the Gilmore Girls
LOVE that show...
Sunday we had a JAMMY DAY!
Gotta LOVE Jammy Days!
This is something my daughter & I
would do more when she was younger, before school!
But, after only getting a few hours of sleep at her Retreat,
& fighting off a bit of a sore throat,
we decided we would have a Jammy Day together'
while Dave went to church & to a friends' house!
Jammy Days always mean no make-up or getting ready...
We stay in our pajama's ALL day long.
Junk food, a variety of beverages, nothing really nutritional at all...
They usually mean rental movies,
video or computer games, or reading a book together
We don't leave the house, no errands or work at all.
We ended up spending some time talking in the morning,
reading our devotions together,
then we moved to the basement & plugged in the
Marathon Gilmore Girls event!!!
By the time Dave came home,
he watched the last couple of episodes with us,
our roommate brought home a pizza,
then it was time to read a bit,
then getting to bedtime for the kid
while I was ready to wrap up Jammy day
(yes, still in my jammies)
by watching You're The One That I Want
& The Apprentice!
Aaahh yes... it was a good day!
Oh - and then - the other exciting news to share...
My daughter has an assignment due this week in her Humanities class.
She was asked to pick her favorite author,
research, & write/prepare a report & story board to share with the class.
It is due on Wednesday.
Her favorite author is Patrick Carman.
He wrote The Land of Elyon series (a trilogy).
He is awesome... very C. S. Lewis like
- in fact, we found him after we finished Narnia.
Anyway - we have secured a Phone Interview with him for tonight!!!
God is so good... and my Little One is SO excited!
He is actually a 'local' author - (he lives in our State)
& before he was a published author, he worked for my Uncle.
So - we know a bit about him and how the book(s) came about.
I encouraged her to e-mail my Uncle
& simply ask for some inside info or help in answering
the questions she was supposed to find answers to.
Since he is a fairly new
(& somewhat unknown - although not for long!) author,
she was having some trouble getting all the info together!
So - she sent an e-mail last night,
& this morning she got a response saying that he had talked
with Patrick himself & the author was willing
to give her a phone interview tonight,
'if it is not too late'!??!!?
Oh yeah - thanks anyway!? Are you kidding me?!
So - that is what is going on in my world today!
(Oh yeah... I am still all caught up!?
I need a reason to take some pictures?! LOL!?)
