A Little Peace

What She Wore: Royal blue, green, and white babydoll tee with a scoop neck; blue jeans; royal blue suede-like flip flops. I’m not usually a flip-flop person, but these are pretty comfortable.

What She Ate: My lovely father took me for enchiladas to help lift my spirits. That’s my family–we throw food at our problems. I wasn’t real hungry, though.

I’m starting to have a little peace with the whole cat thing. I’ve made my signs and I’m going to go look in a lady’s backyard later and see if he’s one of the cats hiding behind her house. Other than that. . . well, I can’t do anything else.

Charlie got up last night at 11:30 pm. I decided to run him through a session of “exercises,” and he did pretty well. I’m starting to suspect that he’s over-tired. Maybe the stander is wearing him out too much to do his other work? I’ll have to ask the therapists about that the next time we see them.

I’ve discovered a new addiction–Librarything.com You can catalogue your books online. You enter the books and any information you want–reviews, comments, when you read it, etc. You even get to select the cover that you have, which for some reason is very important to me. It’s completely free for the first 200 titles and it’s going to be a long time before I read 200 books. It’s also got a really cute widget that I put up in my sidebar. I’m dork.

Anyway, tomorrow we meet our instructor for the first time. I’ll let you know how that goes once it’s over.

Ok, I know that some of you guys can’t see videos, and I have some sort of problem because I filmed the whole thing sideways, BUT if you get past that you can see Charlie in his stander in action.

***Edited: the woman never called me back. She told me generally where she lived, but I guess she wasn’t comfortable giving out her actual address. She said she saw a gray, striped cat behind her house that she’d never seen before. I don’t know if I should be hopeful or what. I went up and down that street, but I didn’t see any gray cats. Black and white cats, but no gray***

  1. Haha that video cracked me up, First off, how the heck did you film it sideways? And second, no, it did not appear that Charlie was having fun. LOL!

    I sure hope that the cat is hanging out behind the lady’s house!

  2. It’s more fun when I do it–he even smiles sometimes.

  3. Hey Charlie are you having fun? May-bee.

    My head hurts from turning it on end. My cheeks hurt from smiling at Charlie. :)

    I’m heading to get that library thingy…

    Good luck finding your kitty. I hope he finds his way home soon. Charlie is doing so good! He really is. BTW you take really good pictures. I was wondering what kind of camera you use.

  7. I don’t know if anyone suggested this but don’t forget to call your local shelter to see if anyone picked him up or called to ask that someone pick him up.

    Was almost there with my dog once. My room mate let my dog outside while I was at work one day and then went to work himself without bringing her in (he forgot!!!). I came home to the SPCS trying to catch her in front of my house because a neighbour called.

    That was a close call because I would have been wondering why the heck my dog was missing when I put her in the crate when I left for work.

  8. well I don’t get it – why would the lady even bother calling you if she wasn’t gonna give you the address where she’d seen what may be the cat?

  9. Small Town Girl says:

    Why the heck wouldn’t she give you her address? That’s lame.

    I’m definitely going to have to check out that library thing when I’m at my mom’s we’ve got a ton of books and it’s hard to remember what’s what.

  10. Too cute watching him lick his fingers! Now quit taping sideways, hard to laydown to watch that!
