DDP and birthdays

October 15th 2012 7:27 am

Thank meow catster for making me a DDP today and thank meow for all the birthday wishes. Mom and I had a quiet day together at home all day on my birthday. She put off cleaning 'til the day after so I wouldn't have to face the vacuum or anything. We watched cat meowvies on DVD most of the day.

Her birthday is to-meow-rrow and she's going out on the town with her mom & aunts and any other family that wants to tag along & watch her drink. Then going to the pizza buffet restaurant tomorrow night. She's planning to walk to DQ for her lunch tomorrow.

There's a potluck tonight downstairs at our building for all this month's birthdays so she's gonna make funfetti Halloween cupcakes (she found Halloween mix and frosting at a store) & play bingo with neighbors. Pets aren't allowed in that room so I'll just chill & hang out in the apartment.

Next week will be busier for her. She's going shopping for many new Taylor Swift things at the stores about an hour away. She's also gonna get her witch costume stuff and look at that new litter genie. Next Weds she has to get up and get to ND by 10 am for a meeting to discuss changes to a web site she made during online internship. She's already been preparing for that at a feverish pace since she knows today & tomorrow won't give her much time for that.


My birthday!

Today I can finally say that I am 2 years old! Mom gave me Fancy Feast Tuna in gravy & sang the birthday song to me in all meows with my name in it. I have a new triangular puzzle box toy with included plush balls and most of my other small toys fit in there as well.

Mom is spending most of the day watching cat themed movies like Milo & Otis, Garfield, Cat in the Hat, Puss in Boots etc.

Thank meow for the messages. Many purrs and head bonks to you!

Mom's birthday is Tuesday and she'll be far busier both Monday and Tuesday. She's gonna get chores done tomorrow so I don't have to deal with that vacuum on my big day.

I'm purring with happiness & kneading my bed to know that I'm a DDP so close to my birthday! Mom gave me my purrsent a little early since she thought I seemed bored. It's a big triangular cat puzzle for toys. It came with 2 plush balls but just about all of my small toys can fit in it and then I can poke at them with my paws. She's saving another treat for the actual day this Friday!

On a side note mom can't wait 'til after Nov 6 so the peace-disturbing & annoying repeated political calls come to stop. She's ready to pick up and scream "Don't call me again or you'll be sorry!".


Geek move response

They encouraged her to apply. She's gonna hold off until next month since there's a time limit to do things in that program if accepted. She's so over winter and just wants to move back south & just fly north to visit family. She knows I'm friendly enough for the south once I get comfortable.

She's already found 2 places in approved spots under $30,000 via the web. She'd just need a loan for the difference from the $10k promised towards a house, so payments would be lower than rent. She expects to get part of the sec deposit & pet deposit back so that would help with some additional furnishings.

She's gotta wrap up her business plan outlines first but is starting to let others in on the Geek move idea.

Moment of truth: mom just feels stuck here in MN. She feels like she's just here because of family. She's not putting her computer information degree to use at all. She's been trying to finish up the outlines to her business plan and it's really complicated in some parts so it's still unfinished. She doesn't like the winter climate here and would much rather live closer to home (Dalton, GA).

She found an online news article that Chattanooga, TN (30 minutes from her hometown) is looking for techies like her so she's thinking of looking into it just to see what happens. If approved she'd have to get a house and we'd have to move. She found a decent house with 7 rooms total for $29,000 and she promises I will have my own room with closet access in it and will get a bird feeder & bird bath out that window for me. She's not planning to do anything about moving with winter approaching soon and would have to save up a bit for a down payment.

She likes the idea of living closer to home & using her skills. There's always something to do there unlike here where she just sits around at home most of the time. We're both feeling bored here. She's paying around $250 now just to rent our little apartment, so paying less than that on a house definitely sounds better. She'd have to hire lawn service. As long as she finds a good pet sitter for me she can fly north in summer to visit family.

She decided to send a normal e-mail to find out if web developers are welcome to apply. She mentioned that she's not enjoying it here because of no work for her and nothing much to do and she always liked Nooga. She included that she has to stay here through winter because the weather is so difficult. So at least she'll know for sure if she can apply for this. She wants to be south (for good) again by 2016.


Close up encounter

The weather is colder now so mom is keeping the windows closed, yet the cool breeze is still coming in via the air conditioner in the upper left corner surrounded by the windows in the living room. I was on mom's lap after we had our breakfast this morning when I saw a little bird fluttering just outside the window. Mom knew I'd want to get a closer look so she let me go in for a closer look.

Only a week 'til I turn 2! So glad everyone is loving the photo of me with the pumpkin, mom posed me for that one since I was just laying around next to it.


9 days & counting

Not much longer before I am 2 years old! This is my first birthday at my new home so mom is planning something special. She's not telling me what that means, but since her birthday is days later she's gonna get her party started a little early when celebrating my birthday. There will be photos fur sure!

I'm trying to be good but she thinks I'm taking up more time than usual when I demand attention when she's trying to do other things.

PS Don't ya just love my new purrofile photo?


October is here

Today is the first day of October! Since I'm a black cat with no front claws I already spend all my time indoors. I enjoy looking out of our 4th floor apartment window and that mom can still open it for me sometimes so I can take in the smells of harvest.

I will be 2 years old on the 12th and mom is allowing me the privilege to say she will be 30 just 4 days later. There is a potluck supper for all Oct birthdays on the 15th but since pets aren't allowed in the food room I'll just have to stay in the apartment & nap.

Mom has put out some Halloween decorations. She just has a plug in pumpkin and covered the cord with protection. She's trying to figure out how to get me to be next to it for some photos but that probably isn't gonna happen for a while. I'm in my carrier/crate eating leftover Fancy Feast right now so maybe after this, a bit of self grooming and a quick nap I'll be more cooperative.


Farewell to September

Mom is spending this last day of Sept on cleaning (already done just now) and laundry. Once laundry is done & put away she has the box of Halloween decorations out so she can figure out where to put things this time. So look for new photos coming soon!

Mom has been busy after winning the telezapper on ebay to hopefully put a stop to those annoying phone calls. She put a new message on the digital answering system that friends & family are welcome to leave messages, anyone else must take the # off the list. She forgot to add the blurb about no calls before 9 am CDT so she's gonna redo it later today.

She checked her mail, grabbed a calendar page for the month of our birthdays so she'll know what's going on at our building (alarm, pest control, potluck, give & take etc). She wrote in our birthdays on it too.

After that she came back up, stashed me in my carrier & proceeded with making strawberry cupcakes w/ pink frosting & sprinkles for her granny's birthday tomorrow. So thank you Morticia for my cupcake gift!

She washed all the dirty dishes now so she's gonna go out for her supper. DQ is the closest & most convenient so that's her plan, unless she wants to go somewhere else & ride her bike or take the bus. She could call for pizza delivery but would rather get out & away from the phone.
