I Smile About

This week for the Writers Workshop I am going to write about 10 things to smile about because everyone always needs something to smile and/or laugh about.

  1. Funny pictures off of Facebook.
  2. Crazy memories of things I have heard said where I work.  It is a lot like the TV show “The Office”.
  3. Crazy things animals will do.
  4. The fact that I am finally divorced and so happy to be alone.
  5. Jenna Marbles videos on YouTube.
  6. Crazy things that my Grandma & little brother say on a regular basis.
  7. The fact that it is almost Friday! (It has been a week full of Monday’s for me)
  8. Funny emails I get set.
  9. The app iFunny on my iPhone.
  10. Listening to music.

Those are 10 reasons that I smile.  What makes you smile?

Flip-Flops

destroyedThis week for the Writers Workshop there were two prompts that I wanted to write about so I figured that I would just write about one today and the other one on Thursday.  Right now I am going to write about the latest thing that my cat has destroyed.  I am sure most of you know that Elinore was abused before I got adopted her so she tends to have weird quirks.

This is Elinore

This is Elinore

After I had her for about 6 months I got Sylvia and then all of my flip-flops started to look like one of them was clawing them.  For the longest time I thought it was Sylvia because she is the one who has front claws and I didn’t see how Elinore be able to do that to  them since she has no front claws.

After I moved back in with my grandparents my grandma finally caught the cat that was literally destroying any flip-flops that she could find which also included ones that my grandpa kept in his closet.  It was Elinore!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She bites them and then pulls parts of the foam off.  If she find any flip-flops that are on the ground she will chew them up and destroy them.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many pairs I have had to replace because she destroys them.

Here are a few pictures of a few that we just leave on the ground for her to destroy.

So as you can see she loves to chew them up.  I find she mainly does it when she is mad at me for some reason or if she got in trouble.  I have started just buying them when they are super cheap at the end of summer and giving them to her.  I find that she likes her old purple on the best and I can always tell when she has been chewing on it because there will be little pieces of purple all over the place in my room.

What is the latest thing you pet destroyed?

So Creepy

Father’s Day started out like any other Sunday at our house.  I was woken up at about 6:50 or so by my grandparents cat which as I look back on it now should have been my first clue that something wasn’t right.

Anyway back to my story.  I was looking through the Target ad and saw that they had Dr. Pepper on sale so I decided I was going to run over to Target and then come back and work on designs.  As I was getting dressed I heard what sounded like finger nails on the wall under my bed.  The first time I heard it I didn’t think anything of it but when I heard it again I knew that there was something alive under my bed and it wasn’t one of my cats.

I finished getting dressed and then went and told my grandma that I thought there was a mouse or even a bird under my bed.  She came down to my room and started looking under my bed.  I ran to get a flash light and once she turned it on and looked under the bed she saw what was making the noise.

There was a BABY BIRD under my bed and it was very much alive.  Needless to say this immediately freaked me out.  I went and got my grandpa and we started to chase the bird around my room and into my grandparent’s room for the next hour.

Needless to say when we finally caught it my whole room was torn apart and a total mess.  My grandma and I then spent rest of the day cleaning my room and doing laundry since my entire bed had to be moved while we were trying to catch the bird.

Let’s just say I have never had an issue with birds before but now I find them totally creepy and I want nothing to do with them.  I also am going to be sleeping with my door closed because I can’t handle any more critters getting brought into my room!  Oh and it was my grandparents cat Vinnie that brought the bird in because my cats are terrified of birds.

I hope your Father’s Day was tons better than mine!

Halloween From The Past

These are the girls costumes from last year.  I didn’t get them any new ones this year so I am going to dress them up in some of the other ones I have used over the years.  The pictures are blurry because they wanted to run away from me.

How To Bath A Cat

*I took this from one of my best friends blogs.  She is also the one who taught me about designing and she still helps me out when I mess up crap and need to fix it.  
—————————————————————————- 
1. Thoroughly clean the toilet.
2. Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water, and have both lids lifted.
3. Obtain the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids.
Note: You may need to stand on the lid so that he cannot escape.
CAUTION: Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws will be reaching out for any surface they can find.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a “power wash and rinse” which I have found to be quite effective.
6. Have someone to open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.
8. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet, and run outside where he will dry himself.
Sincerely,
The Dog
