1. Black Friday _________________________________.

3. ‘Tis the season for _________.
4. I never jumped on the _________ bandwagon.

My answers:

  1. Black Friday I will be out shopping with my mom. We go out about 7 AM, the crowds are gone by then.
  2. A pet peeve of mine this time of year is receiving Christmas cards that people don’t sign with love. We get cards from relatives that don’t sign love, just their names, no note. I figure if you are going to spend 50 cents on a stamp at least write a little note and spread the love. I drive my hubby crazy getting so mad about that, I even use HBO words sometimes.
  3. ‘Tis the season for Christmas music. I am breaking my cds out today.
  4. I never jumped on the cell phone bandwagon. I have a cheap cell phone that I use to call my hubby when I am off with my mom, but that is all.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 126

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section.

1. I have _______________ for  ____________.

2. _________________ make me _____________________.
3. I’m surprised that _________.

4. To make a long story short, ________

My answers:
1. I have an endless supply of love for all cats.
2. Cats make me happy.
3. I’m surprised that it was so hot and humid today. I though fall had arrived, but summer snuck back in.
4. To make a long story short, KaTwo needs prayers.*
* This is the long version-KaTwo could use some purrs and prayers. About a month ago , I took her to the vet because she was losing weight and drinking a lot of water. I though she was diabetic, but she is hyperthyroid. Her liver was inflamed because of this, I never realized that could happen. I got her an antibiotic shot just in case the inflammation was caused by infection. She quickly recovered and has been doing fine. She is tough to examine and requires Gabapentin just to get her into the carrier. That day the vet was unable to fully examine her after drawing blood. We went back for a thyroid recheck and I asked the vet to examine her this time because I could see blue around one of her nipples and felt a lump. The vet told me in 90% of cases it is malignant and the prognosis is poor.  I am praying for that 10%, she will be seeing a surgeon as soon as I can get her an appointment. The vet did say she felt 2 lumps, but they were small.I always worry about this with my females because I adopt them as adults and most have not been spayed until they were older which is a cause of cancer. Has anyone ever had a cat with this? If so, how long did they survive?

Joanie and Sammy thank you all for the birthday wishes.

They shared a kitty cake ( canned food) and got some Temptations for a present. Joanie was sad that her friend, The Great One wasn’t here so we will celebrate again on Tuesday.

Sammy’s day wasn’t as good as Joanie’s. He went to the vet with Prancie because they both were due for thyroid blood work.Bad timing on my part.

Poor Gremmie fell off his skateboard at recess and hurt his ear. We just can’t find a helmet big enough to cover those ears.

1. September is the perfect month for __________________.
 
2. This month, I am looking forward to __________________.

  3. My morning routine always includes coffee and kitty cuddles.
  4. I have a love-hate relationship with tuna. I know that is an odd answer, but it is true. Sometimes I love a tuna salad sandwich or tuna casserole and then all of a sudden it repulses me. That is the only fish I eat and it has to be solid white albacore.

Lyrical  # Challenge, Day One. Thank you Cathy ( Curious as a Cathy) for nominating me for this challenge. Here are the rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Today is my niece’s 5th wedding anniversary. One of my favorite songs is I Loved Her First by Heartland ( written by Elliot Park and Walt Aldridge). She danced with her Father to this song and I cried. Actually, it is so beautiful I cry every time I hear it.

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each other’s face
So much in love, you’re alone in this place
Like there’s nobody else in the world
I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one, she told me so
And she still means the world to me
Just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything, life must go on
And I’m not gonna stand in your way
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
How could that beautiful woman with you
Be that same freckled face kid that I knew?
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I’m going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
Yeah, I loved her first
I am not good at following rules so I am not nominating 3 people. If you like music and want to join in the fun then consider yourself nominated.

1. I have faith in ________________.
2. Yesterday, I ____________________.

My answers:
1. I have faith in God, I know everything happens for a reason and God will get me through.
2. Yesterday, I finally got to Build-A-Bear with my great-niece ( The Great One).
She chose the “Elsa” bear, for the bargain price of $7, you can add a piece in her paw that sings “Let it Go”. SO glad we went with that so we could hear it 30 times on the way home 🙂  Just kidding, I had as much fun as she did.
3. My favorite place to be is home with my kitties. And hubby. If I could get my Mom to move in with us, it would be even better.
4. If I was granted one wish, it would be that no animal ever had to suffer. ( How many people thought I would say to meet Nicolas Cage?).

Another outfit for Joanie. She really loves The Great One and stays right with her.
