HA!!! I laugh in your general direction! Last Monday when I picked Baby Girl up from theatre camp I got bamboozled into this.....
Let me introduce you to Theo, the theatre kitty.
He was dumped over a 6' fence of a theatre mom who can't keep him because she has 2 dogs and a 20lb cat that wants nothing to do with a small kitten other than to make it an appetizer.
She brought it to the theatre and we brought him home.
He is adorable and everybody loves him.
We took him to the vet on Tues (I wont even discuss how long we were there waiting, but it was HOURS) and we found out he is in great shape for being a stray.
No ear mites, no worms, no major dirt. He did have some fleas but we took care of that.
Everybody else is getting used to him. Hemi and Theo seem to be forming a special bond (I can see a boys club starting) and last night Theo tried to snuggle with Hemi. Hemi's not ready for that yet, and Theo looked SO sad, but today Hemi went up to Theo and they sniffed noses.
Princess will tolerate him (like she does the rest of the cats) but she's avoiding Baby Girl. Lucy wants nothing to do with him and has found a hiding spot in the house. I have little pity for Lucy since she is the one that chased Tiger away. She'll just have to adjust.
|Why doesn't Hemi want to snuggle??|
Thursday was our first trip to Tampa to visit a friend of #1 Son's.
We left after work and met them at a mall. She was visiting her grandmother in Naples and we decided to meet half way (Tampa). What moms wont do for their kids.
Friday I took off from work (I'm there less than 2 weeks and I'm already taking days off, but that goes under the flex time I requested when I started) and went with a friend of mine and her daughter and #1 Son back to Tampa for an outdoor concert called Warped Tour.
Its an all day outdoor concert of abt 20-30 bands that play on 4 different stages.
Definitely an interesting day. Saw lots of strange people, there was mud everywhere (almost fell into some when my flipflop got stuck) and it was HOT!
|Meet Jason. He has his own YouTube channel and is quite popular. I call him Cotton Candy Head.|
Yesterday was sleeping in but by noon we were out shopping for Baby Girl. She needed a few things for theatre and of course we ended up getting things for school (which starts in 3 weeks).
Today is a band meeting and tomorrow starts band camp. It's the week where both kids' activities overlap. This is where #1 Son's Band camp overlaps Baby Girl's theatre camp and I'll be driving back and forth while working. Plus Baby Girl has her performances this week AND I'm helping out by making cookies and volunteering as an usher. (she is there on scholarship and parents are STRONGLY encouraged to volunteer if they want the scholarship in the future.) My coffee pot will be humming this week!!
There is no rest for the weary. I am going to try and add some more posts that will pop up thruout the week so I'm not totally radio silent.
And I've decided I need to invest in Starbucks because at the rate I'm drinking this stuff I should be getting some return!!
So what's new and exciting in your life???
