Happy 4th!

Just wanted to wish my handful of faithful followers a very happy and safe 4th of July, 2006!  I’m very much looking forward to having a four day weekend.

Soooo tired!

Apart from any medical procedures or sleeping pills – does anyone out there know how to make a cat sleep?

Frosty seems to be going back to his kitty ways.  We used to get to sleep until about 5/5:30 before he would begin to screech for someone to get up and play with him.  It slowly began to go back to being more like 4/4:30 and over the past week, some mornings, it was even 3/3:30.  That is what prompted me to be absolutely sure that he gets lots of play time when we get home at night and I wouldn’t let him just snuggle up in the sun and sleep – I need him to sleep when we sleep!

Well, that is NOT working – this morning he started at 2:21 (yes, exactly) and would begin his screeching in a pattern that amazingly coincided with the time that you were just about to doze back off to sleep.

This is not good.  I am very tired.  I am going to be very grumpy if we can’t fix this.  Help!!!

I just love Ziggy!

As a child, I was always a fan of the Ziggy cartoon.  You wouldn’t really call it a cartoon strip because it was usually just one frame, but that frame could say so much!  See:

Is that not just the cutest???

What’s up with time?

I have come to the conclusion that time is a strange thing.  If you were to tell me that I was on vacation just the week before last, I’d tell you “No way! – That was a loooong time ago!”  Course, I’d be wrong.  I was on vacation just the week before last.

Then, if you were to tell me that the Fourth of July is less than three weeks away, I would tell you “No way! – That’s a loooong way away!”  Course, I’d be wrong again.  Fourth of July is less than three weeks away!

Then hubby had to add the fact that Christmas is just 6 months and 10 days away – ugh!
