Excuses, a Birthday, and Some Furry Creatures

I have a very good reason for not blogging. My "g" key on my lap top was stuck. It probably had something to do with Camryn spilling coffee on it last week. When I would try to type anything, I had to hold down the backspace to keep it from doing thisggggggggggggggggg. And if I misspelled anything, I had to delete the whole thing and start over. Trying to type an e-mail or blog entry was maddening, so I gave up. Luckily, yesterday, our friend Kenny took it apart and attempted to fix it, and now the g is behaving itself.

We had a great weekend. Joe's 24th birthday was Saturday! My parents kept the girls at their house overnight on Friday, and Joe, me, and a few friends ate at McCallisters and then saw Transformers. Great movie! Afterward, we got milkshakes at Steak N Shake.

Saturday, Joe got up really early and went fishing with my dad. Once he got back, while Summer and Camryn were still at my parents' house, we had a good lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings, and then made a grocery trip. We picked up the girls on our way home and then around 7, Joe's dad, grandma, and my parents came over for cake. Joe wanted an ice cream cake, so we ended up getting a Brownie Batter Blizzard cake from Dairy Queen. Deeeeeeeeelicious.

Sunday I dragged everyone out of the house for a trip to Lowe's. We ended up getting a lot of little things that we needed around the house, plus a pantry, finally!

After the movie on Friday, Audrey said she had to go pick up some kittens her friend had found so she could take them to the shelter the next morning. I don't know if it's because I worked at a pet store and saw and heard stories about animal overpopulation, the difficulty with finding so many animals homes, and the euthanization rate at the local shelters, or if I watch too much Animal Cops, but I said we would keep them at our house until we found them homes. Joe agreed, and she brought them over later that night.

Aren't they adorable?! It was obvious that they were not used to people. They were shaking and the more gray one was hissing at anyone who got near him. I'd estimate that they are 5 weeks old.

Saturday we gave them flea baths (they were COVERED in fleas), and they warmed up to us a bit.

This one is the only girl, we think.

We had to teach them to eat wet food. They are doing pretty good, now.

Stephanie - Can you tell me how to make the shirts you and Karen make. I would like to make some for my daughter. I would appreciate any help I can get as I "suffer" in the craft department. I'm working on it but it is a slow process for me. LOL!

Happy Birthday to your husband.

I think it's great you took the kittens in. They're adorable. I'm sure you'll find homes for them in no time.

Glad you got your G key back.

[Better than losing the use of your G-spot, eh? LOL]

I've been wanting to try that Brownie Batter blizzard for awhile now. Is it pretty rich? Happy birthday to your hubby, btw. :)

And Steph...those kittens are SO ADORABLE.

I actually think the little girl is the cutest one.

I hope excellent homes are found for them soon. It was really nice of you guys to be their foster family.
