Another bar fight

Apparently Willie has an anger management problem or drinking problem. Just a month ago he got in a fight and his ear was hurt again and this Saturday he came home at 4:00 a.m. and could barely walk. No, he wasn't drunk again, he was injured. I knew something was really wrong when Sunday AM he didn't get out of bed to drink milk. This cat looks forward to that every morning!! He also could not stand to eat. I literally put the bowl under his chin and he would eat....and he would leave some morsels, which again, is NOT like Willie.

After a half day of not knowing what to do, off to the Vet ER we went. After all, we have a basketball game to go to tonight and we just didn't want this to interfere (just kidding, sort of!). After several hours and less than $500, we found out that he has puncture wounds and all will heal fine. This pic doesn't really do his leg justice, to me it looks worse in person. Maybe that is the Mom in me talking! I am thankful that Mr. Willie is not seriously injured and neither is our bank account :)

Tale of Two Breakfasts

This past weekend, I visited Daytona Beach with a good friend. She had a family wedding to attend and I was her traveling companion. Yup, it was a gay-cation.

Since we were on vacation, after a night down in the hotel bar, we decided we needed to order room service. Boy, was she patient with me during this process. Everything had something weird about it. Nuts, fruit, custard, etc. She assured me that custard dipped french toast would be good.

So....I ordered the french toast

And she ordered this.

Can you say opposites attract? I believe it was salmon slices on a bagel. I would rather starve than eat that. One thing we agreed on - Mimosa's!

Need some help up here?

Our house is still torn up due to our recent project, and our cats have been going crazy. We had to take Jordy to Grandma's house (thanks again!) and Willie has been locked up in the basement or garage. Willie has finally been freed the past few days and he is enjoying his freedom. Last night when my roommate and I were moving furniture we heard a weird noise. We look around the corner and Mr. Willie has climbed up the ladder. I don't know how he really did it, but seriously, nothing surprises me with this cat!

Buckwheat is all grown-up and now works at KSU parking.


Please tell me you know who Buckwheat is! If not, you must go rent Little Rascals today. Maybe this will help keep Blockbuster in business. I'm sure Redbox doesn't have this one.

Walk in My Shoes

My roommate and I are in the process of having our hardwood floors refinished, which required us to be out of the house until late last night so the stain could dry. I drug him out shopping and then we went to eat. None of this was really planned, and we are planners, so let's just say we were a little bit disoriented last night.

We walk outside of the restaurant and my roommate says "I have no idea where we parked." We then looked around and he quickly remembered where the car was. I started laughing and said "Welcome to my life! This happens to me daily!" Sometimes it is difficult to be so ditzy, but I fully embrace this gift(?).

Hope you like the new blog template!

Hard at Work

Take your kid to work day was a little different at my firm this year. You see, I had to drive 300+ miles to get any kids to take with me, we had to drive downtown to a coffee house, and I had to allow 5 year olds to drink their own coffee. I see nothing wrong with this picture. Although, I do have to admit that I find it strange they LOVE coffee and I can't stand it.

Hard at work....or coloring.

Did Someone Steal My Phone?

Mickey, were you taking pictures with my phone?

Look at the reflection in this one....
