Catching Up

At least, I hope I'll be catching up. Soon. As it is right now, I feel as though I could sleep right through the weekend and never catch up (on sleep, anyway).

We finished Vacation Bible School last night (can I get an amen--about the finishing part, if not the VBS itself?). It was not well-organized (someone else's responsibility) and was put together much too late for me to get all the necessary music things done properly. So I worked all day long at the day job, then each night raced across town to church, went non-stop for three hours with VBS music, then spent hours getting ready for the next night. Tonight will be the first night since last Friday that I will have gotten to bed before 1:00 in the morning.

So at the moment I have no profound thoughts except how heavenly my pillow will feel.

This humor thing, however, sent to me at work by my supervisor, gave me a much needed chuckle a couple of days ago. She's a dog-lover and I, ever the cat fancier, think it's heavy on propaganda and light on facts (the girls have just seen it, and they heartily concur.

Rosie: "That's. Not. In. The. Least. Bit. Funny." Jenny: "Where are our La-Z-Cat chairs? Get mine custom-upholstered in a tasteful blue damask, and be quick about it."

Don't get it? You will, if you read/view to the end. Enjoy, and I'll think of something more meaningful to say in the near future.

(Oh, and Singing Owl, I know you tagged me for a good meme. That's on my list to do, when I can do it justice. Been praying for you, sis!)



If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never says its not quite as good as his mother made it...

Then buy a dog.











If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour, for as long and wherever you want ....

Then buy a dog.
















If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn't care about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies ...

Then buy a dog.
















If you want someone who is content to get up on your bed just to warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores ...


Then buy a dog.










If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves you unconditionally, perpetually ...

Then buy a dog.












But on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness...

I miss my cat...19 years old when she died. I don't miss the dogs I've had.

I don't get to have another cat due to the problem of the hair and the aversion to is by my significant other.

I've never had a dog since I've been grown, mainly because my schedule has always been to erratic to be able to tend a dog properly.

I lost two cats in two years before I adopted Rosie and Jenny, as well as three other cats some years before that when I was married. I miss them all. I'm sorry you can't have cats now. I hope your s.o. knows what a measure of love it is for you to forego the company of a cat.

Thanks for commenting.

In support of good woofies everywhere, I think it is TRUE!!!
I had cats when I was a child and loved them; was the only one who would hold the kitties when they had to be put down due to sickness or injury. I have had four dogs in my life. A mini cockapoo, a Lhaso Apso, a wheaten Yorky and now my best friend in all the world, Dragon, my Shih Tzu.

I think it boils down to human personality matching with a particular pet. So go kitties and puppies! You will be loved no matter what!
