News updates

I've typed ups so many half posts that never made it to the internet... here goes another try lets hope it takes.

I got a job two weeks ago. I like it. I'm working for a former boss from years ago. it's a bit chaotic and unorganized but I like all the people and it's good to get back to work.

After a few months with the kitties I have decided Tom and I should never adopt children. The subject has come up many times... and I think of all the porn I would have to get rid of. Such a big life change is scary but people say what you get back is worth it and I have seriously considered looking into it ... always in the somewhat near future... until recently. Our kitties Grumpus and Mason behave when I am around. However if Tom is alone in a room with them they run amuck. Tom is covered in scratches. They climb him when he's cooking they jump onto his shoulders when he is using the bathroom. They try to take food from his plate and will jump on furniture they know they are not allowed on. Tom gives the cats rewards for bad behaviors. He pets them and apologizes for screaming when they hurt him. He gives them treats to try to get them distracted from their bad behavior and as much as I try to get him to understand he is encouraging them he throws his hands up in the air and claims, "I can't help it, they're too cute." If he can't teach a cat stay off the stove how is he going to deal with a child playing with matches? He'll probably give him chinese fireworks. ARGH!


in case you missed it there are lots of pictures of my little monsters here:

Congrats on the new job!

And, I came to the same conclusion regarding adoption quite a few years ago. Gene is a sucker for cuteness when it comes to the dog, and I'm way more rigid than that. :)

We don't even have a cat and I came to the same conclusion. I'm too selfish to be a parent. It's not that I don't like kids, I'm just not sure I want some of my own. I'd probably make Joan Crawford look like Mom of the Year. "Daddy loves you, time to go to Hogwarts, see you at Christmas!"

We can't even take care of a pet. Which pretty much cancels an chance of being a parent of an actual human being.

HAHA. The little devils. This is too cute. My thought has always been "The best children are your children. Because they leave with you". I guess I should say the same about pets. LOL

I had a cat named Sophie. He was something. I had to move the and the new place didn't allow pets. So my mother took Sophie. Sophie would hide under my mother's bed and when she'd put her legs down to get out of bed. Sophie would attach herself to my mother's legs and rake her with her hind claws. After about 2 weeks my sister and brother took Sophie to the shelter. The next day they felt guilty and went back to get him. when my sister Terri leaned her face toward the front of the cage Sophie was in and said "hi Sophie" Sophie threw herself at the cage door howling and hissing. Needless to say Sophie didn't come home. But he was adopted.
Oh. And the fact that Sophie was a male with a girls name? The person who gave him to me said he was a girl. LOL
