This is what ya get

I feel really behind. I made a list of things I wanted to blog about just for the shear fact I didn't want to forget. I mean this is about keeping track of our life, right?

We've been stayin' busy going to parties and such, adopting a cat and helping out the family. Last week I was able to help Clark & Rachel by picking up the girls from the bus. Basically I was pretending to be their mother. Homework, clean the room and bath. The usual. It tickled me pink to be with McKinzie and Morgan. It's so crazy to see the different personalities in them even at their age.

Yes, you did read correctly, we adopted a cat. Her name is Snow Belle. We really wanted a dog but our apartment couldn't handle a dog. Nor could we. But we couldn't be more delighted to have Snow Belle.

she loves to get our attention by taking our attention away from what we are doing...

I just finished one of the best books ever. In fact I took a long time to read it because I did NOT want it to end. If you have not read it.. shame on you... go check it out at the library.

A few weekends ago we went to the Battle of the Bands 2009 at the GA Dome with Brandon and Amber. There were a few famous singers there but I can't remember their names. If my sister went she could have told ya. But as it goes, I can't keep anything straight.

Emily was amazing enough to take me with her to Kooza. It amazed me how talented everyone was. My favorite was the guy on the unicycle dancing with a women like they were on ice. My heart couldn't take some of the stuff they were doing. I felt a panic attack coming through most of their acts.

My mind has been racing lately. In fact to the point that I don't sleep. Two weeks I have been sleep deprived. I woke up in the middle of the night and the thought came to me that I needed to write about food storage. Something we have been working on in the past few weeks and continue to do so. If you don't know what food storage is all about and the link doesn't answer your questions.. it's something we have been commanded to do by our Church Leaders in case of an emergency for years.. job loss, catastrophe, the list could go on.. Lately I have been really grateful for that counsel.

Wow it appears you are way busy. It's nice that you are there for your family when they need you.

Your cat is adorable. I love cats though.

Hope all is well!

PRINCE OF TIDES! One of my favorite books ever. I've read it several times. If you are interested, I have an article about Pat Conroy. In the article he tells where he got the idea from some of the characters in the book. Its really interesting.

Prince of Tides was really about his mother as "The Great Santini" is about his dad. Beach Music is also a great read.

My new favorite read is "The Source" by James Michener. You really must read this
