RIP Spencer (1996-2012)

spencerfeat2

Yesterday we said goodbye to Spencer, the craziest, quirkiest, wildest, most amazingly and frustratingly unique cat I have ever known.  Inside this house he was incredibly affectionate but always into mischief… he was always getting into something and giving me funny things to write about.  Like the time I caught ...

30 Days of Truth: Day 15

30daysfeat15

Ok first let me get the usual suspects aside.  My husband, my friends, my family… goes without saying. There’s something I have tried to live without that didn’t go very well, I was miserable. When I first left home when I was 21, back in 1996, I lasted approximately three ...

A Cat Only a Mama Could Love

He drives me crazy. Over the years, he’s come so close to death so many times I can’t even explain it. He’s obnoxious. He’s bossy. He whines and he gets his hair everywhere.

Spoiled Spencer

Today I was too sore with my sunburn to enjoy any time out on my balcony, but Spencer was kind enough to cover for me… Seriously, does he have it made or what? He (and the other furry mammals in the house) run this joint, we are totally his bitches. ...

Who’s Calling?

This morning at 6:30am (approx 40 minutes ago) I was laying in bed and heard the phone ringing in the livingroom. The phone in the bedroom is broken and by the time I was awake enough to realize the one in the livingroom was ringing I knew I wouldn’t make ...

First Time Owners

We are first time house owners.. this is getting more and more obvious with every step of “Operation Face-lift” for our new flat. We started out with these big dreams, thinking the money we budgeted into our mortgage would allow for these grand designs. Now after a few months we’re ...

Random Updates

Ever wonder what it’s like where I live? I found this website while chatting with a friend and looking for photos of Rotterdam. There’s lots of pictures from around the city on there, was a pretty good find. Stephanie voted off Survivor.. not like I couldn’t see it coming but ...

Bah..

My Chinese friends are here and gone.. they came here together with their son who thorougly enjoyed playing Super Mario Kart while us adults chatted. It was actually a much more enjoyable visit than I thought it was going to be, even with the odd language issue. Sadly though, just ...
