Working from Home with Cats

I took a day to work from home earlier this week thinking a nice quiet house would help me get more done. I did, but my “coworkers” weren’t very helpful. Working from home with cats helping is always a challenge. They really want all the attention, and food, always food.

Snuffy didn’t see any issues with sitting in front of my laptop. How else was I going to pet him? What you don’t see is Rosie on the other side of the laptop asleep on my legs.

George was like, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, are you busy?

And Rosie seemed a little angry.

Do you need a new fluffy coworker to help you around the house?

National Dress Up Your Pet Day

We can’t let National Dress Up Your Pet Day go by without a few pictures of dressed up pets.

Here’s a very old photo of Snuffy wearing a witch’s costume from Build-A-Bear. That’s what happens when one of your kids is home from school sick and bored.

Not all of our pets enjoy dressing up as much as Miss Molly, our Yorkie. She is such a little diva even when wearing the cone of shame and a baby snap t-shirt to cover her stitches.

2019 Instagram Recap

I know I can look back in my Instagram feed but I enjoy my yearly Instagram recap. It helps me reflect on the past year and remember the highlights.

Looks like I wasn’t quite as active on Instagram this year. Something to work on for 2020.

We started out the year by tearing up the living room carpet and found beautiful hardwood floors underneath. Score! We celebrated my dad’s 90th birthday!

Over Memorial Day weekend, we took an amazing family trip to the coast of Maine. One of the highlights of our year because we were all together. Something that’s so rare these days.

In June I did an incredibly crazy thing, I bought myself a convertible! I can’t wait to start driving it again in the spring!!

In August we visited our daughter and son-in-law in Nebraska and played with our grandchildren. Being so far apart is definitely one of the hardest things. September meant the start of senior year for our youngest and the start of the lasts for us.

September also brought another much-needed Disgals trip to Disney World. We also got a bargain in a new dining room set.

Over Halloween we made a trip to the spooky skeleton house! Thanksgiving brought another trip to Massachusetts.

We picked up a bunch of wreaths for the house, took a trip to Woodman’s of Essex for our favorite seafood. Found our deck furniture in the pool when we got home. I managed to craft a wreath. Christmas was very low key since the stomach bug hit our house the Saturday before. We managed to rally and still have a Merry Christmas.

Let’s see what 2020 brings! I hope everyone had a happy and healthy New Year!

Home For The Holidays

Twenty years ago this month, we adopted this adorable boy from Lollypop Farm and brought him home for the holidays. It was our first Christmas after moving to New York and we were missing our friends and family.
