But let me give you all my very "valid" excuses if I may.
a. Joe has been on vacation and we always have super activities planned but somehow, one of them always does us in physically and we end up nursing each other for some days after. And so it was, that we moved the entire living room around. Joe threw out his hip, I had muscle cramps that would not go away for 2 days and that was our reward......besides a great looking room. We sure enjoyed patting ourselves on the back as we looked at our work from the vantage point of the couch.

c. The new kitten, Uma the goddess of all she surveys is too fun to watch and play with, so how is one supposed to get anything of real import done with that distraction? She is adorable. The sweetest, most friendly, people oriented kitten we have ever had. She vacillates between being a parrot and a baby in our arms. She even goes to sleep on her back. I promise photos....probably while she is napping.
She already has GK trained and is working on Joe. Our old man cat is just confounded by her actions. Uma is not the least bit afraid of him, walks up and talks in his face, runs around him and then dashes off, hoping he will chase her. He is too tired for that but does wait for her to come around so that he can half heartedly hiss at her young whipper snapper self. Ms. Ellie Mae our muttly mutt and smartest dog we have ever owned is in 7th heaven. A new chasing, racing and getting into trouble partner. This one is even faster than Ellie and stands her ground in any disputes as to who is choosing the next game. This is too good to miss.
We've gone to the movies a couple of times. Cleaned out some cabinets in the living room. We were watching some videos the grands gave us but our TV told us this afternoon that sitting on our lardy butts was over and died. We will have it back in about 5 days. Just in time for Joe to go back to work.
this olde broad is gonna get at all the fall and Halloweenie projects my olde heart desires....sans any other humans wanting something from me for at least 8 hrs a day. Does that sound selfish, oh good then you did get my drift. Cabin fever has set in and I'm rooting for Septemeber ya'll. Me and Marlena Dietrich......vant to be alone.
