The Blog Hop that Didn't Happen #SliceOfPerfect #MessyReality

I thought I was going to join my first blog hop, but I was too late. I want to credit Jill Krause at Baby Rabies for starting the hop and for creating this awesome idea!

My blog title gives it away. My house is usually more messy reality than a slice of perfect.  That's one of the reasons why I love this idea.

My slice of perfect? Well, at least my most recent slice of perfect...

Cats, They are Kitty Cats

Sometimes I forget how good it is for me to purge my brain. That last post that I wrote? It was cathartic. (That's the perfect word and the fact that it starts with "cat" was unintentional...)

I'm now able to look at my relationship with my kitties in a different way.

I still don't like it when poop ends up on the futon, (I mean, really that's not unreasonable of me)

or when Sol bites my fingers (unintentionally...I am thrusting my fingers in his mouth) when I give him his medicine,

but I've been reminded that they have good great lives, even if they don't get loved on like they did 4 years ago.

Geriatric Cats...In Sickness and In Health

I was ready to go to bed early tonight (well, early for me...which means getting in bed before 11). Then I walked into the "cats' room" aka our house's master bedroom.

It was sitting on the futon.

In the middle.

They had gifted me with a poo-resent. And, not the easy kind to pick up.

As I was cleaning it, I realized that the carpet had patches of wetness. It turned out to be white, frothy spit up. An internet search led me to the high likelihood that one of my cat's has asthma (which I'd thought was a potential issue in the past).

Kidney disease. Hyperthyroidism. Asthma.

Hello, again! I've missed you...

I've been busy. Like, kitchen is still getting pieced together busy. We have a countertop. <<yay!!!>> We have base cabinets. <<yay!!!>> We are definitely making progress. It may be just a bit faster than a snail's pace, but we are moving forward. Because of all of our kitchen remodeling fun, my blogging has been deprioritized for the time being. (Not a word, but it should be.) I've been mostly ok with that because I haven't had time to think about not blogging.

Then I have times like today where I want to write everything important or not, big and little, birthdays and ordinary days. For now, I'm going to give y'all a sneak peak into my, "Things I Want to Blog About!" list.
