Wow, Fall started yesterday.  And it got COLD here!  Not really, this is Florida.  It became less oppressively hot though. 

And one year ago yesterday Robin became a boy kitty!  Yeah, it is funny and true.  He used to be a girl kitty but after that visit to the mean doctor lady and the catheter, he became a boy. 

Things are 'ok' here.   Mom is still stressed at work.  And yes, it freaked her out on Friday morning when someone who works over in Luxembourg walked into the office and said 'Andrea, do you always come in early?'.  Shit, they know Mom's name.   Only they pronounced it wrong.  Oh well.  Accent is on the first syllable, not the second.   At least it is the right name. 

Hermie being all cute like.  who the hell does he think he is?????  I'm the cute one in this house! 

I've been doing my best to help Mom sleep.  I plop on top of her to make sure she stays in bed.  Doesn't always work.  But I try real hard.

So Mom got her hair highlighted today (I don't see the lights though).   Mom likes when it is done, she feels younger.  hahahah, get real. 

Well, it is quiet around here.  Not that we want excitement or anything. 

Toodles, I'll write again soon I promise!

Sigh part gazillion

Mom is STILL having stuff at work.  And then she had a 7 hour, yes 7 HOUR meeting via conference call on Friday.  Thankfully she came at the 4pm break and started up again at 5 till 6:30.  Basic meeting rules:  you lose folks after hour 2. 

There was excitement this morning with the heathens.   Mom was in the office looking at that computer thing and heard chattering so walked back out to the patio to find a squirrel hanging out on top of the screen room tormenting the heathens!  All 3 boys were watching that squirrel!   Mom told the squirrel to leave but he didn't.  Mom got more aggressive and told the squirrel to leave now.  So.  Squirrel moved down screen room and Hermie jumped straight up about 6 feet (screen room still) and scared the crap out of that squirrel!  Squirrel went running up the tree chattering at heathens! 

Things are ok around here.  Mom isn't sleeping well.  She keeps waking up in the middle of the night and I try my best to make her feel better but she is soooo tired.  On Friday she almost took her night time blood pressure medicines again in the morning.  THAT would have been very bad.  good thing she noticed in time. 

And she slept crappy last night too.  I tried to help her but she was having none of it.  I'm kind of worried about Mom.  She needs to get some good solid rest and it isn't happening.

This lizard keeps showing up on the window of the heathen room.  Every night, there it is, on the window screen.   It is like it likes the heathens!!! 

Not much else here.   That guy is around.  Mom likes him.  bah, just a human heathen.  Mom won't let me talk too much about him.  She says I am a nosey little bitch.  I don't know, I see, I tell.  It's how I roll.

Well, I better rest.  I have a full night of watching Mom not sleep

WHAT THE HECK IS THAT???  Oh, it is Robin.  He's been fractalized. 

OK, I am going to rest now.  Toodles till later!

So Mom was home 2 days this week, it was awesome.  I love when she is home with us kitties.  Not sure if I want her unemployed again but I want her happy.  It is a quandary. 

"Louie and Robin, you must not hump Ellie, she doesn't like it"  hahaha, yeah, like they will listen to the all knowing Ostrich!

Robin went to the doctor lady on Tuesday.  hahaha, good. 

Really Ellie, it is not nice to make fun of your brothers.  Robin did fine at the vet.  He is down a pound so I have to work on helping him gain weight.  He is off his antidepressant for his bladder cystitis.  Now he is very active, follows me everywhere and is very loving.  I like him like this.  Unfortunately, he peed inappropriately today.  I will watch, if I see more then I will call the vet and get him back on his pills.  dammit, I like the perky Robin.

BUT MOM!!!!  Robin got on the bed with us and looked at me and HISSED.  Yes, I hissed back at him, he deserved it.  He thinks he is so special, being skinny and all.  blech.

Robin LOVES the catnip cigar. 

"Louie, you must hump Ellie, Robin, you must not look at Ellie", listen to the Ostrich!!!!

 Yup, it has been verified.  I am HOT!

I'm not sure what was going on, but Mom woke up last night all upset.  She held me and told me to not get eaten by alligators.

Ellie, I had a nightmare.  I dreamt you were being chased by an alligator and I couldn't get to you to help you.  You ran down in to the storm drain!  Don't you know, that is where alligators live!

ohhhhhhhhhh, ok, Mom, I won't get eaten by an alligator (sigh)

Mom was home all day yesterday, she said it is called 'vacation', I call it wonderful.  I'm always happy to have Mom home. 

Things are ok around here. .  Her guy friend asked her last night if she is ever going to program again.  Mom said yes, cause that is what she loves to do, not this stuff she is doing now.  I think that made him happy, he knows that Mom is smart (he told her even) and she needs to do something that shows that off.  But to be prepared, in case of you know, Mom is going to be ready with a site to get up and running.  She already has some business cards printed, get this, with pictures of us kitties on them!  Yes!!  She figures the best way to advertise about how she feels about kitties is to put some much love kitties on the cards. 

The boys are heathens.  Hermie caught a baby frog earlier this week, Mom saved the frog.  And today Hermie jumped up the screen room to get to a lizard, he got the lizard, Mom screamed and chased after Hermie to get the lizard back. 
I hope Mom's language doesn't upset anyone.  Yes, the lizard was saved.  And 3 boy kitties scattered like crazy when Mom yelled.  I of course was very interested at what was going on but was not involved, cause I am a perfect little princess.

Mom is all excited, her Cornhuskers are playing football today!  They joined the Big 10 this year so it is all new and very exciting until they lose and suck.  But she will still watch and listen.  Being in Florida, Nebraska games don't get much tv time but she can listen to them online.   Both Mom and her sister listen to the games, they like them plus, it makes them think of Grandpa and how much he loved his Big Red. 

So, life is ok here.  Mom is good.  She is happy to be losing weight but she really needs to step up and start the exercising thing.  She finds excuses every single day.  What is her excuse today?  I don't have excuses Ellie, I'm just lazy, I know I need to exercise, stop bitching at me!!  Wow, she gets testy.  I, of course, do not need exercise, I have the perfect kitty body, well, 2 bodies but who's counting.

I must nap, hope I don't dream of alligators.
