It’s been a busy weekend!! Most of our time has been spent outside enjoying the 78 degree temperatures. Much better than how we started our week (in the teens and with several inches of snow!)
First off, I must introduce you to our cat. She doesn’t have a name yet. We’re working on a few and I’ll let you know our final decision just as soon as we figure it out (today we’ve been calling her Dr. Biden since neither of us could remember Joe Biden’s wife’s name….it’s Jill.) 🙂
We went to PetSmart yesterday “just to look.” There is a foster program where the animals live in people’s homes and come to the pet store a couple days a week to (hopefully) be adopted out. This is the cat that literally spoke to us when we walked up:
The cat LOVES Kenny! When we were talking to her foster mom, he said, “so when we buy her, I mean IF we buy her…..” and I knew it was over. We were going home with the cat.
She’s pretty loving and meows a lot. They said she was good with dogs, other cats and kids, but she’s hissed at Sophie and Oliver multiple times, and swiped at Oliver. We’re going to have to work on that because the dogs have been here WAY longer than she has.
We went to a party for a little while last night, which was a TON of fun, but my legs couldn’t take the walking or standing. We came home pretty early and the cat kept us awake for parts of the night.
Today has been super nice too. The cat again hissed at the dogs and then got angry with me and scratched me. Like I said, we’ll have to work on that. I’ll give her some time, but she’s going to have to get over it.
Kenny went running this afternoon and I decided to remove the giant bush in front of our house. I’ve hated the thing since we first looked at the house and vowed to tear it down. I still have to dig the roots out, but here it is.
I’ve started planning my garden and now I have to start thinking about flowers for the flower beds. I’m pretty psyched! I just don’t want the weather to go crazy at the end of the week (we’re supposed to be back down in the 40s by Friday.) I’m ready for spring!!!
