Why Not....

My cats have offically taken over my house. Tigger doesn't like it if doors are he claws at the doors. I now have paintless strips on almost every door in my house. Both couches have threads pulled from the cat claws. I have cat hair flying everywhere and have to actually vaccum the couches weekly.

I want to have the cats declawed but Michael is very reluctant. Why not, you ask? Probably because the cost of the 'procedure'.

So, I'm thinking....I should get the cats declawed and get a maid and then I'll be set.

Why not, right?

Per Emily, I must blog.

I've been busy and so, not much has been going on, other than regular day to day stuff....nothing least not to me.

After much searching, I finally found a watch I like and that fits. I spent more than I wanted to, but figured had I stopped looking a month ago I could have saved at least $10 in gas going from store to store.

Speaking of gas, Michael filled up for $2.09 a gallon yesterday and today it is $2.08. I felt like dancing a jig when I saw that price. Mental picture....Me, dancing a jig. What is a jig? I picture high knees, hips moving and fingers snapping. Is that your mental picture, also?

Michael and Jacob went to the FSU v. Clemson game this afternoon. They didn't have tickets, but that never stops them. Michael is a great haggler. The last game they went to he paid $23 for 2 tickets and they had great seats. I expect nothing less this time.

I have a pot of Cincinnati Chili simmering on the stove. I'm surfing my blog list, but really should be cleaning my house. Since I've been working full time, we've all tried to pick up the slack....but my clean is not the same as other's clean, specifically Jacob and Michael. Oh well.

I've been reading The Secret Life of Bees for book club. Hopefully I will have it finished before the meeting on Monday night. I ran across a quote the other day....It fits me to a tee! "If it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done."

Have you noticed that PLUM is the color for Fall this year. Look around....shirts, skirts, purses....they are all plum. Do you have anything plum?

2008 is going to be great....
It's the year I'm going to lose weight!
