Bits & Pieces

So, I’ve been really busy at work lately. But I wanted to put some random things that have happened lately. So here goes!

Ben turned 3 last Sunday. I can’t believe that he is really three. We had a party on Saturday night for him which was really fun. Usually we only have grandparents, but we had our friends John and Melanie come this year, and we had such a good time. On Sunday I made another cake so we could sing happy birthday to him on his actual birthday. He made us sing to him 3 times just so he could keep blowing out the candle. It was great fun.

On Friday we adopted ANOTHER cat. This makes 3! But she was just so cute, sitting there in the Petsmart, waiting for someone to take her home. I wish I had a picture, but she is a little nervous, and our other cats aren’t really nice to her yet, so she isn’t around much. But her name is Squeegee (which goes with our other cat named Bucket nicely!) and she is a tortie. Her eyes are orange, and she has a really fluffy tail. She loves to be pet. I am really hoping this doesn’t make me the crazy cat lady. I’ll post a picture soon.

I am reading the best book I’ve read in months, The People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. I’m not done with it yet, but I’ll review it when I finish it. If you are at all needing something to read, pick this one up. Or put it on hold at the library (even if there are 100 people ahead of you; it is worth the wait!). Hurry! Do it now! Just kidding.

That will have to do for now. February is my busy time at work, so I don’t have a lot of time to post, but I get sick of seeing the same post come up on my page. And thanks to all of you who commiserated with me about the make-up counter. It should be a nicer place, shouldn’t it? I’m just glad I’m not the only one who feels make-up impaired.

oooh, I can't wait to see a picture of your new kitty. Maybe this one would be nice to be if I slept on your couch!!! ;)

Anxiously awaiting the library to get me a copy of that book. So glad to know it is a good one. I've liked her other two books quite a bit. Remind me...did you ever read "March"?

Three cats???? Wow. I had a cat growing up and it attacked me my senior year. Just jumped up and bit my arm, two nights before the Prom so I displayed a nice bruise with bite marks at the dance. A little too goth, in my opinion:) I haven't been fond of them since. I hope they bring you all sorts of joy:)

Happy Birthday Ben!

I loved March so would be interested in reading this book of hers too.

I hope you are almost done with your busy time!
