Things are a little crazy here and we are still living out of boxes after our big move, but it’s all good. The cats are starting to adjust, although Snuffy had no problem with the whole move and a new house. He’s the chillest cat around. Jezebel, on the other hand, has been in hiding along the ceiling of the basement. She’s finally starting to come down for food. It will be a while before she’s comfortable enough to explore the rest of the house.
Little Rosie is a 10 year old female domestic shorthair mix who could not go with her humans when they moved. She’s available free of charge to approved adopters, age 60 and over, through Lollypop Farm’s Seniors-for-Seniors program.
It’s here, Free Cat Day. If you’ve been thinking about adding a cat or kitten to your family, then head to Lollypop Farm, or one of their satellite locations, to adopt a cat or kitten for free.
Tigger is our current office cat, and as you can see, she looks at the world a little differently. She had surgery to help correct her vision problem, but she is still a little cross-eyed. She’s very sweet and loves to hang around on our desks while we work. She absolutely does not like other cats and can take a little while to warm up and get comfortable in new situations. If you’re looking for a sweet companion come to Lollypop Farm and meet Tigger.
Phoebe is a 14-year-old female domestic shorthair mix whose needs a new home because her owner died. This beautiful girl needs a nice retirement home where she can live out her days. She’s available free of charge to approved adopters, age 60 and over, through Lollypop Farm’s Seniors-for-Seniors program. Come meet her and all her feline friends at Lollypop Farm
Phoebe and Tigger don’t want you to miss Free Cat Day at Lollypop Farm on Wednesday, June 15th 2016.
In honor of “Finding Dory”, opening in theaters nationwide on June 17, Pixar Animation, The Walt Disney Studios, and Disney Parks declare June 11 “Speak Like A Whale Day”.
To officially be speaking like a whale, it should be more like “Speeeeaaaaakkk Liiiiiiiiike A Whhaaale Daaaaaay”.
Or, better yet, let Kaitlin Olson, voice of whale shark Destiny, and Ty Burrell, voice of beluga whale Bailey, give you a few pointers on how to Speak Like A Whale.
To help celebrate Speak Like A Whale Day guest of the theme parks at Disneyland Resort in California, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disney Cruise Line ships will receive a complimentary button to celebrate the day, while supplies last.
If you are visiting the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort or Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort you can take part in the undersea-themed activities, including a live DJ, games, and giveaways. There will even be a “Whale Speak University” to attend and help the younger guests give speaking whale a try.
At The Seas with Nemo & Friends in Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort will also be joining in the fun. Guests will be able to learn about the real-life counterparts of the characters from the film and them in the massive 5.7 million-gallon saltwater aquarium home. Experts from Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment Team will be on hand throughout the day to help Guests find Dory and her friends and get a closer look at their world.
Turtle Talk with Crush is one of our favorite interactive attractions. It never fails to get our whole family laughing and now Dory and some of her new friends from Disney Pixar’s “Finding Dory” have joined Crush at the Turtle Talk with Crush attraction at Epcot and Disney California Adventure park. Guests can now meet Destiny, Bailey, and Hank.
I’ll be celebrating Speak Like A Whale Day at home by sporting my pin, packing up for our big move, and only responding to requests from my kids if they speak like a whale.
Last night I encountered a wolverine in the back yard that almost attacked and me and my dogs, okay, maybe it wasn’t a wolverine, but still, it was creepy and scary as hell, so tonight I decided to take the dogs out the front door to avoid the killer wolverine. The dogs ran around, took care of business and I turned around to go back inside and that’s when I saw something above, and hanging from the door, a nest of baby spiders! Baby spiders everywhere!
Thousands of tiny baby spiders all over the door. Then the realization hit me that I had walked through the nest when I went outside – holy crap!! Instantly, I felt intensely itchy, like I’d been rolling around in a barrel of fiberglass insulation. Clearly those spiders were all over me. The only way back into the house was through that door. You can imagine my horror because it was horrifying!
If you come to visit you might not want to come to the front door. Just sayin’.
I’ve been home for a little over a week now and I still feel like I won the lottery. When the invitation to this year’s Disney Social Media Moms Celebration arrived, I burst into tears.
Every single year, except for this year, I have hoped and dreamed that I would be invited. This year, we are in the middle of buying a new house, selling our current house, and all that goes along with moving. I knew there wasn’t any way we could all go and I didn’t think I could go by myself.
Things have a way of working out and I was able to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration with my friend Tina. This was my first trip without the family and it was a whole new experience and so much fun! Tina’s also really good at taking selfies, something I have never mastered.
I’m still working on gathering my thoughts. It was such an incredible experience and there was so much to take in and experience over the four days we were there. I’m so grateful that I was able to attend!
