I have my final interview today at the hospital!
We're wrapping things up and I'm giving her a massage.
That part is pretty standard in all massage interviews.
But that means we won't be decorating and cleaning and organizing today.
We will be doing kitten damage control. They ripped open some Goodwill pages and drug 
clothes everywhere and somehow knocked over our table by the door with
alll our change on it... I'm sure you can
picture it.
So, while I have to delay Christmas pictures I do have some "latergrams" to share with you.
They do involve a lot a cats because that's our life now.

This happens to be my favorite picture ever. I'm thinking about getting it printed.

Something, something sunrise. 

The best sushi dinner ever

A lunch beer on a lunch date.

This is Boo, or the mama cat. She never lays with me so this was special.

It's Christmas music time!

I know this is a bad picture but I had to act fast.
This is in the bathroom of a movie theater the opening night of Breaking Dawn (which I didn't see)
and that is a pink cocktail with a lime in it. I just got so much humor out of that.

Well I hope you enjoyed my cats! I promise to start using a real camera again now that I'm actively blogging again.

Have a Happy Thursday!

What we're doing on our day off.

Ben doesn't know this yet, but since Thursday is a day off for both of us we will be cleaning
organizing and
Christmas Decorating!!!
I've been super jealous of reading about everyone around me decorating and putting up trees.
It's our turn! 
Honestly, I hated Christmas up until the year before last.
I was working at Starbucks with it's blasting Christmas music and horrible, angry customers 
and all my co-workers and I were at war with the "holiday season."
I saw all the non-Starbuckers happy and enjoying the season. One night I was sitting with Tazo the Cat
and we were both being grumpy (he's always grumpy and I was too then) when I made a decisison.
"You know what, Tazo?"
No response
"I think I'm going to start liking Christmas."
No response
"You ask why? Well because I'm tired of being mad about it"
No response
So I went out and bought a whole six Christmas decorations.
It was a start.
Now I love decorating and Christmas music and I can't wait to do it!
I feel like I'm tardy to the party even though it's not December.
Que pictures of Christmas decorating that I lust after.

I think I need to do this for my tree!

I'm sure there will be more to come, hopefully I'll have pictures of my own Christmas decorations tomorrow!
Happy Wednesday!

Dear Diary

I think I've always had a blogger identity issues.
I read all these cute blogs and I want to be like them.
It would be nice to have some followers.
I know to make a good blog I need good content, good pictures, and good writing.
I know I've been lacking on almost all of these fronts.
Sigh, but I miss blogging.
I've gone through a life slump.
My massage career has come to a road block, and I've been working on climbing over it, 
but it's going to take some time.
In the meantime, I've gone back to making lattes-
in a Target.
I didn't think it would bother me as much as it does, but I'm stuck in a uniform (with a hat. I hate hats)
working for people who are new to the coffee game (it's only be open for six months)
and all of the people I went to high school with are home for the holidays and shopping at Target. 
I know it's not true but all these factors make me feel like I've failed.
I'm angry about where my life's at and at the same time I don't want to face the reality of it.
I come home and crash on the couch, turn on the tv and turn off everything else.
I'm quick to temper, sad, and scared.
Then I realize that I'm just letting life slip by me. 
The only thing I do outside of work is watch tv and stress about what to do with four three-month-old kittens (that no one wants-are you kidding me?)
I need this blog. I need something to do that will keep my brain working.
Keep me wanting to read, write, move, anything besides just existing.
So, I'm going to keep trying with this blog even if no one follows me, or no one even reads it
because I need this to get me to the next step.
