House cleaning

Well here it is Saturday again. This is my day of cleaning house. I live alone but you would think I lived with a bunch of frat boys at your local university.

Well I don't really live alone...I do have two cats. They seem to make more mess then any frat boys. I am forever picking up their toys. There is nothing worse then going to the bathroom in the middle of the night and stepping on one of their toys. They have balls, cat nips toys, shiny toys, toys that crinkle and of course who could forget the tiny little mice that seem to get misplaced. I would be so embarrased if I had to move my sofa or fridge when any one else is around. They would think I had a little of tiny little animals living under there with the amount of food and toys.

Then there is the hair. With the amount of hair they loose one would think that they should be bald....but alas, they just keep growing it. I vacuum up enough of it to make another cat. Dust bunnies don't have a chance around here, they are out numbered by the cat hair balls. Even the spiders have moved out because they have no place to build their webs.

I am forever amazed at where I find their toys. The worse one I think is the time I awoke one night to find a very soggy toy mouse laying on my pillow.....a present from one of my cats I hope....either that or I am starting to play with the toys myself. Maybe I should consider some professional help!

Well enough chatter, best get to the cleaning before the cat hair makes ME move out alone with the spiders.

FIRE

Okay...today I have to post a warning to all. It is about the hazards of fire.

I have just had a fire in my condo. As you all know, I love cats and my entire house is covered in cats deco. This includes a cat cover for my toaster. Well it used to anyway. I was doing dishes after supper and put the toaster cover back on the toaster. Working away, I could smell smoke and the I could see it but couldn't see where it was coming from. Then it started to flare up and I found it. It was my precious cat toaster cover going up in flames. I threw that in the dish water and then some how managed to blow out the flames inside the toaster. Then it happened...

The dreaded fire alarm...it rang and rang and rang I could not get it to shut off. Here I am running around like a chicken with its head cut off opening windows, trying to shut the fire alarm off...then it hit me....I fanned the fire alarm with a towel to get the smoke away from the alarm and it finally went out before all my neighbors came running to find out what I was cooking today.

Now as I am writing this...I hear fire trucks....my god I hope they are not coming here. I am embarrased enough. I would hate for them to find me in my jammies with smoke all over the place, my fingers burnt and my hair all messed up. This is not the way I want to meet men okay.

My lesson for today...DO NOT COVER YOUR TOASTER WITH A TOASTER COVER UNLESS YOU UNPLUG THE TOASTER FIRST

Cats

I am named crazy cat lady for a reason..I love cats. I have two real ones but my entire house is decorated in cats. Who knows you may see me on tv on the weirdest homes issue.

My one cat is Spaz...you can figure out why he got that name. Well today wasn't his day. I was working in my "office" when he came in and I guess I did something to startle him because he jumped straight into the air and landed on my file cabinet. There was a basket full of odds and ends on the file cabinet which went flying in every direction. That startled him even more and he ran straight into the horizontal draps I have. That startled him yet more. His paws were going every direction trying to get traction. He finally got out of the office. After I finished laughing at him I went to find him....under the chair....eyes as big as saucers. He still hasn't come out. He will come out for supper I hope.

What would we do without the entertainment of our pets?

COLD

Last night I rambled on about snow. Well tonight it is the cold weather. I could find something good about the snow but am finding it rather hard to find something good about the cold. I guess I could mention the fact that it uses more electricity and therefore keeping jobs going or the fact that we have to use more gas warming our vehicles and therefore producing more jobs (or filling the pockets of those oil rich) or even the fact that we drink more coffee and there producing more jobs for the coffee places. When you are outside and freezing it is hard to look at any of those reasons.

I have found a way around it. Give a ride to a fellow worker and have them go out and start your car for you so that when you get off work, it is nice and warm. So simple hey

Snow....why does it have to snow. I am not a skier, I am not a snowboarder. Infact I am not a skater. Why oh why do I have to put up with snow. Well, my dear friends. The way I look at is so simple. Every part of the world has something not so good about the weather. I was in Mexico enjoying the great tropical breezes thinking what a great place to live. Just 6 short months later hurricane katrina moved in and destroyed it. Other places have tornadoes, hurricans and earth quakes. I guess just a little snow is not that bad to put up with after all

NEWBY

I am new to this blog thing so please be patient with me. I have recently become interested in writing and found that it has become a passion with me. A very good friend of mine, Leigh, has introduced me to blogging. I love going to her spot to find out what is going on in her world, and find out what is inside her head. I hope that mine provides as much entertainment as hers.
