Ok one last pic before I go...

(Cuz it's too flippin' cute not to share)

The animals want to go on a road trip too! But they can't. They will stay here with Tom and I will miss them all very much. :(

Just imagine what the reception would be like...

My cousin sent this to me on facebook and I had to post on here! - I'm going to be MIA for a while as I'm taking a family trip across the country (me, my mom and sister all in a car, LORD HELP US ALL!) May try and update remotely via the i-touch but not sure I'll be able to. Enjoy the rest of July and stay happy, healthy and safe!

the best photo I've ever taken!

All I have to do is look at this photo and I smile. I love animals soooo much! They are the best! They are terrific! They should rule the world! I am bursting with animal love right now I really don't think I can contain myself. What in the world would we do without these amazing creatures!?!?!?!?!

momism at sea

My mother is on an Alaskan cruise. It's something she's always wanted to do her whole life and now at 70 something years old, she is sailing around Alaska, enjoying every minute of it. She called to check in and see how things are going with us and I filled her in on our little lives and also that I had a bad bout of food poisoning last week. And this was our exchange after I told her about the food poisoning:

mom: "Damn it. Don't do that again!"

me: "Do what? Eat???"

mom: "Eat something with food poisoning."

me: "Ohhh. Ok, I should have known better."

I'm actually responding with "I should have known better" a lot lately. It's just easier that way.

But I also think the 20+ hours of daylight are starting to give my mom the sillies.

The Hungries

Every night around 5:30ish I ask the animals, "Who's Hungry???" They look at me and meow (Chum) and head tilt/blink (Wrigs) then they stampede down the hallway into the feedin' room for their dinner.

We (me, Chum and Wrigs) made up a little song that we sing when this happens:

title of song is called, "The Hungries"

"here they come
marchin' to their bowls
they're ready to eat now
stuffin' their pie holes"

(then, this is where Chum n Wrigs sing together, duet style)

"hey hey we're the hungries
we're ready to eat our meal
give us some kibble and canned food
then listen to us squeal!!"

It happens every single night. They are so predictable sometimes.

bittersweet rediscovery

I watched the memorial service for Michael Jackson and pretty much cried for 2 hours straight.

It was a beautiful tribute to a beautiful and talented, entertainer, father, son, brother, humanitarian.

And I love this song:

Hold My Hand.
