aj’s antics, part 1


this is aj. aj is having an identity crisis. he’s become infatuated with my makeup. every morning he sits on the sink counter and watches me put it on. and his new favorite toy? my blush brush. good thing i had a second one. what does joe say to this? “well he needs something to put his blush on with.”

why i love my boyfriend, reason no. 9745683

he sat through a lifetime movie AND the two-hour broadcast of rob and amber’s wedding because i wanted to watch them. he didn’t complain, and he didn’t fall asleep. i love you baby.

it’s about ME

apparantly i should be writing more about the cats than myself. that is according to the comment joe left on my last post. to him i say TOUGH LUCK…you get to hear about me anyway. 🙂
i am a clutz. i’ll be the first to admit it. but i figured even i could put on jewelry without a mishap. yeah, was i wrong. i was looking in the mirror to put on the necklace joe gave me and was trying to get a better grip on one side to put it in the clasp when it fell out of my hand. the heart slid off, into the sink and down the drain. i flipped out. i felt very bad and very stupid. so now there’s a sign on the faucet that says “don’t use this sink” (because i have such a bad memory i’d use it!) and joe has to get a wrench tonight and come up here and rescue it for me. sigh. there never seems to be a dull day around here.

it’s time for monday madness!

anniversary, part 1

joe and i had the most fabulous anniversary. i will write all about our date once i get the pictures developed on monday, but i had to share this. for my present he got me a silver heart-shaped necklace with diamonds around the sides. this picture, which i couldn’t get a clear shot of for the life of me, doesn’t do it justice. it’s absolutely gorgeous, and i love it!

have you seen this cat?


i have! julius returned home at 1:30 a.m. joe went to get something out of the car and julius was waiting to come in. needless to say, i was very excited. i had given up hope after we went around the neighborhood and still really didn’t have much to go on. but he’s home now and he slept ALL DAY today to make up for his trip…because, really, how can he take time to sleep when he’s got so much ground to cover, so much exploring to do. i really should have understood that from the beginning.
