Friendly Fill-Ins Week 273

Hi everyone! Time for the fill-ins. I came up with the first two sentences and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two. If you didn’t do a post for them, you can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you. The link is open until Wednesday night.

1. I never thought I would __________________ until ___________.

2. ______________ is the ______________ to _______________.

3. I’m happy to announce that _________.

4. _________ is like a second home to me.
My answers:
1.  I never thought I would live with a lot of cats until I did. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂
2. Dishwasher gel or powder is the secret to getting pots and pans clean. Much better than soaking them in dish soap.
3. I am happy to announce that the Dr. told me I lost 10 pounds. I haven’t been snacking after dinner and I gave up ice cream ( mostly) . I don’t feel like I lost weight though.
4. Nowhere is like a second home to me. I am comfortable at my mom’s and my niece’s, but I need to be with my cats.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

My flashback is from last August, Angel Jinx. At the time, he seemed so healthy for an 18 year old cat.

  1. Great that you lost that weight. Having lost some myself, its not really too noticeable until the loss needs a change of clothing size(s), or your watch fits more loosely, little things like that.

    1. I never thought I would need to go on a weight loss program until 2014, when I lost about 40 pounds, that I had gained when I was on chemo…strange to gain weightTo me then, but I sure did.
    2. to me music is the best way to relaxing and destressing.
    3. I’m happy to announce that Benji and Dalton were declared healthy at their last vet visit, earlier this week.
    4.sometimes my place of work feels like it is like a second home to me.

    When I was single, there was a couple that I spent a lot of time with, almost like a second set of parents, and their place WAS like a second home to me, as my parents were about 100 miles form there.

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I have even more than 40 pounds to lose. I am glad your pups are healthy. XO

  2. I must try that with the dishwasher powder (tablets in my case). Sometimes food gets so burned on so anything that improves that is good.
    Being on a ship is like a second home to me. I can really relax and leave all my fears behind. It is the only time I get a good night’s sleep too. At home I am lucky to sleep for two hours. On the ship I sleep for at least 6 hours. I think it is the gentle rocking!
    That is a sweet picture of Angel Jinx.

    1. That is interesting that you sleep better on a ship I wonder if a water bed would help. XO

  3. Love your fill-ins…..congrats on losing 10 lbs. I think I found them! You are the ultimate Cat Mom so it’s no surprise you are happiest when you’re with them. I’m sure the feeling is MUTUAL!!!

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

  4. Isn’t it amazing what a few small changes in diet can do for your weight. Excellent fill ins, and your Angel Jinx certainly did look healthy and happy.

    Thanks for hosting the fill-ins!

  5. Congrats on the ten pounds. I am struggling to lose some weight.
    I always put the pots and pans in the dishwasher but I wash the dishes and flatware in the sink! Ha!

    My Fill-Ins…
    1. I never thought I would really live in Florida until I did. I kind of miss Missouri and the seasons.
    2. Homemade noodles are the way to my heart.
    3. I’m happy to announce that I finally got my new laptop up and running. My ten year old one died last week.
    4. I don’t feel like another place is like a second home to me. Home is in Missouri.

    1. Thank you for these great answers. Homemade noodles are great, I wish I could make them. Yay for the laptop. XO

  6. Love your fill-ins. Yay on losing 10 pounds. That’s wonderful.

  13. Concats on losing 10 lbs but giving up ice cream? TW used to like one dishwashing gel cos it was the only one to get the tea stains out of her cup. Now we have to use pods cos the door to the detergent department doesn’t close all the way. They work too.

  14. I LOVE your fill-ins! Congratulations on losing 10 pounds! I think I know where they went. I finally got my act together and did the fill-ins for Kozmo. And I can’t imagine life without cats in it. I love my furbabies to bits.

  15. I enjoyed reading your fill in answers!
    Hope your weekend is going good. 🙂

  16. You rock, my dear. Stay healthy and know that you and yours are loved. Jinx sure was. ~hugs~ It’s clear your home is filled with love.

  17. As always, your fill-ins are fantastic! I can really relate to your #4. I am comfortable at places like my parents’ house, but I still most prefer being at home with my kitties and pup. Purrs!
