Bringing On The Comfort!




To every Groundhog in this world - “ Neener - Neener! “  It was the best damn homemade chili made that day!  No sweeter revenge for leaving us to more of this insane weather.


The past few weeks - especially since Groundhog Day - things have been quite full of anxiety over a Honey-Do List needing immediate attention around here.


Naturally - it always pertains to something that gives Mother Nature opportunity to take some great pleasure with enjoying her skills for slamming down bad weather.


And in the middle of it all - of course - I reached a point where I wasn’t quite so sure I was going to be able to get out of bed one morning.  The chronic pain was about to take me down - all the way.


It was the second morning in a row - when I was awakened around 4am with this incredible burning migraine headache.  Felt like a helmet on my head - just radiating my brain.


Come Saturday morning ( why is it always on a weekend? ) - I began experiencing that pinhole-sized hearing coming through my right ear - with the echo.  And the left ear was responding as if it had a wad of gum crammed inside.


( No.  I was never one of those kids.  But I do remember a few! )


Made a trip to see the doctor this past Wednesday.  Sure enough.  Major sinus infection.  Doctor told me the burning helmet of a migraine - was fever.  ( Whouldda thunk? )  I’m taking Amoxicillin - Mucinex and Theraflu.


Obviously - changes are in order.






Yesssss.  He’s posing for a new modeling job.  He’s prissing.  He’s bragging.  He thinks his farts don’t stink.


Zucker has a new bed.  He loves it.


What he doesn’t like about it?  He thinks his new bed is responsible for getting him kicked out of our bed - and confined to our master bath - behind the baby gate.


His new bed is for me - so I can sleep - without worrying about kicking his scrawny butt out of our bed all night long - waking up every few minutes to make sure he‘s okay!


The baby gate?  That’s for Carlie.  That poor girl is under the mistaken notion that she’s entitled to every comfy - whatever - in this whole house!


It’s a definite safe assumption of my needing some sleep in a desperate way - when I don’t even care how much it pisses her off to see somebody have something she can’t get close enough to even sniff!


( Just ask Hubs. )


On a much lighter note…






Ever since Spinner got a loaded stocking for Christmas…


He’s become clingy - in his own way.  He likes to be close.  But not too close to touch.


This fur ball is soooo on my good list.
