Helping mom

Mom is seriously unhappy today. The reason is that her home area in north GA has been under threat of storms & tornadoes and 2 twisters have hit within 45 minutes of where she still calls home. She still has family & friends there and not everyone is online very much, so she's probably going to be making calls on speaker on her smart phone while washing dishes this evening, and then making a video during laundry.

I curled up and purred on her lap but she still bawled when she saw her only girl cousin down home was under a tornado warning, and the internet radio was playing "My Hometown".

Since nobody does much video chatting to her she's turned the web cam into a kitty cam to see what I'm up to without turning away while she's on the computer.


What a day!

Mom caught up on cleaning the apartment. Then she took a break before rearranging the living room. She finally got rid of the recliner just last night so she had to clean up loose fur that was under there first.

She still has the swivel rocking chair so she moved that to where the recliner used to be, and bought a fold down ottoman, so now she can decide when she wants to kick up her heels. She was fighting with that recliner forever.

Anyway she thought the media shelves with movies should be located next to the tv, so first she moved the decor & book shelves out of the way. Then she moved the media shelves where she wanted. This took so long to do with taking everything off the shelves, placing them and then placing things back on them. When the media shelves were done she took a breather and then put the decor/book shelves where the media shelves used to be in the corner of the living room and arranged them.

In between the shelves she placed my kitty cubes, toy basket and other things I like to play with. She calls it the kitty corner. My sleeping arrangements have been moved into the bedroom, I eat on the floor of the kitchen and use my box in the bathroom. I just can't go in the pantry, bedroom closet or on the counters.


Cya later

I'll still be around but mom is going to be busy with important business things for a little while since her energy is coming back with the days starting to get longer so she can start making web sites and other creative design project stuff soon to support her crazy music love affair.

She just made a fresh batch of all chocolate frosted cupcakes (don't worry, she's not letting me near them) for her grandparents' 64th anniversary tomorrow. She had a lot of dishes to wash so decided she is treating herself to the pizza buffet tonight.

She's still doing great but has been staying home a lot to avoid catching those nasty bugs that seem to be making everyone else sick. She got the flu shot last fall but is still washing her hands or sanitizing them as often as possible.


New teaser toys!

Mom went ahead & ordered refills for the Litter Genie so she won't need to worry about running out. She also ordered a couple cat dancer teaser toys so we've been playing hard for several minutes. It's as much fun for her to watch me spin, somewhat flip, jump & dance to get the cardboard wire one. I like the long rainbow one to roll around with. Best of all it came in a box!


Lazy weekend

Mom and I are enjoying a lazy weekend together. It's bitterly cold out and she'd rather stay in and stay warm than go out and risk catching the junk that's going around since hoomans don't seem to stay home when sick. We're just hanging out watching tv, checking out stuff online and we'll watch a few movies. She'll probably download some songs on iTunes too.


Mom is gonna be fine

She spent 4 hours yesterday getting tested & checked out thoroughly. She had to wait almost an hour on the doctor to enter the room so that's mainly what made it so long. Thyroid is acceptable level and there is nothing medical causing the daily fatigue other than these short, dark & cold days. She felt a little rough since getting home last night from everything she went through while there but is starting to feel better.

At least it doesn't take so long when I go to the vet. I have to get the annual shot in a couple of months.


Mom's so tired

She thinks her daytime fatigue is a result of the winter weather being hard on her weak thyroid. She feels all her energy is spent digesting food that isn't quite helpful to her and staying warm, leaving her tired, forgetful & unable to do much of anything all day long. She doesn't feel right until the later dinner time.

She scheduled herself an appointment with her doc on Monday afternoon for a thyroid check up. She has several of the symptoms so she's pretty sure it's that. She was born with underactive thyroid and constantly needs to take medicine every day just to function, which she hasn't done well the past couple weeks despite medicating.


Happy Mew Year!

10 years ago tonight mom was at a concert in Nashville, TN (Kenny Chesney with Keith Urban & Montgomery Gentry) for a New Year's Eve party and wandered downtown after. Barely got in the door at Tootsie's. She was just 20 so couldn't legally drink but still says that was the most fun New Year's ever.

Tonight will be a quiet night at home. She's staying in with me cuz it's too cold to go out and she doesn't wanna play bingo for hours with the neighbors when Taylor Swift is going to be on tv. She'll sneak down before it and find me some party gear, still has her hat & horn from last year. She's gonna make herself a frozen pizza & enjoy her wine coolers. We'll do a little greeting message on the new web cam once we have our party on.


Good-bye pretty tree

Mom decided to take down all the holiday/seasonal things and put them away 'til next time. Once she snipped all of the zip ties holding the lights to the center post of the tree everything went quick & easy. The pantry is over sized so the smaller things are in boxes along the top shelf while the tree is stuffed into a small coat section.

She's gotta get more bags so she can vacuum up the rest of the needles off the fake tree. She swept some of them and picked some others up by hand.

Mom got a few new movies, some warm & soft socks (she's wearing the blue pair now) and spending $ to get us some things.

For cat themed gifts she got an ornament of a black & white kitty playing with a red ball of yarn to hang on the tree and a magnetic photo frame to display my handsome face on. It's a blue frame that says Purr-fect! on top and a red star magnet (holds the photo to frame) that says Meow. She found a great photo of me lounging in the window before the mishap with my ear so she's going to purrint it out and get it on the frame tonight.
