Un-Whiny Wednesday. I'll try harder next time.

It couldn’t be more lovely outside. Blue skies. Everything in bloom. It’s just about as pretty as spring can be.
Still can’t find my mascara. Guess I’ll have to come off of the wallet and buy some more. It should be replaced every few months anyways.
I’m wearing a new spring dress with a long, flowy skirt. Bitty kitty freaked out trying to capture the evil skirt monster this morning. I have the scratches to prove it.
He’s such a baby doll, though, that you can’t be mad at him. I’ll pick him up, look him in the eyes and say, “no, that hurts mommy” and he leans forward and licks me. We have to get him declawed asap. He has a vet appointment Saturday morning for his first shots. They won’t declaw or neuter until he’s 4 pounds or 4 months, whichever comes first. I don’t think he even weighs a pound yet. The total cost for all his shots, declawing and neutering is about $350. Yikes. But it’s spread out over the next three months so it’s doable. As long as we mind our expenses and don’t eat out.
Per Austin’s instructions, I gave his official vet name as Furr-o-shus. Spelled just like that. I usually just call him Bitty Baby or Bitty Kitty. Just like I refer to Stubby as “Mow-Mow”.
On the way to ballet Monday, Jamie was coughing… I offered her a cough drop… she (tentatively) accepted it. After a few minutes she said, “you know, Aunt Heather, the strange thing about the cough drop is that when you have it in your mouth you don’t cough”. I guess they should call them, “don’t cough drops”.
Yesterday was a busy day at the office for me. Lots of new business, new policies, meeting with people, etc. The day went by fast and I went home tired.
I was torn last night between watching American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and The Office. I flipped back and forth. I’ve never been a fan of DWTS but I watched last week because of Kate and WAS SURE she’d be voted off, bless her uncoordinated self.
I mentioned a memorial service for my children’s grandfather that is coming up. One of the people organizing the event sent me a message from the brother of my kids’ grandfather asking that they give me his number. He wants to know about the kids. I’m touched but also a little nervous. I’ll call him, mainly because I want the boys to not have any missing pieces from their family tree.
Austin went job hunting yesterday. I haven’t DIScouraged him from working but I haven’t exactly been chomping at the bit for it. It just creates another huge responsibility for ME and quite honestly, I’m not sure he’s ready for it. Just basic things like being able to fill out an application when he has such horrible handwriting and doesn’t always remember his address… his perception that he can dress however he wants… but he’s a good worker when he wants to be. He helped a lady move yesterday. I really need to find people in the church who need help around their farm/property who don’t mind showing him how to do stuff. He learns quickly if he’s interested and motivated.
Emailing with Purple Michael and Candice today. They are plotting an upcoming rendezvous or two. I’m only a tiny bit jealous. I love that she loves my first gay man. It shows that I have good taste in ‘mo’s.
I love this new dress I’m wearing but I just caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and I looked like Kirstie Alley. Have mercy.
I’m setting up an online Pampered Chef party. I desperately need a new baking stone because mine was discarded during the Darby Era (along with all of my flipflops, my fuzzy slippers and my precious scrapbook). I’ll give y’all details of how you can participate. Help a poor girl out.
This is supposed to be Whiny Wednesday but I’m not feeling very whiny. I’ll try harder tomorrow.
