So, how did the Holidays go for all of you? I hope you all got lots of goodies to play with and eat.
Apparently, someone came to our house that was/has been sick and didnt tell us. So, Landon, the 2yr old bean, is congested and sneezing and just not feeling good. Mommy hates it when people dont care about getting kids sick. Ugh! Oh, and also Eli, 9 months, has to get his shots today. They are his 6 month shots, but mommy and daddy decided to wait a while before he got anymore b/c they hate babies getting shots. Autism is one in 100 for boys. So, he is getting these shots 3-almost 4 months later. Anyway, I gotta let mommy get on here and check something before they have to go get those shots. Can you all say Tylenol?!? Yeah, for Eli to help the shots not be so bad. Redfurd, I havent forgotten about you! I am so very sorry I wasnt able to be on here and to send you a little something for Christmas. But, I hope you did get lots of goodies anyway. Want to come over later and snuggle in my new kitty bed?

Anyway, internet is still not on. Money is really really tight right now. So Christmas is going to not be as good as it was going to be. See the big high up boss people of Daddys can't decide how much his bonus is going to be. They usually have it by Thanksgiving and now the rumor is it may not be until the first of the year but maybe early as the 22nd of December. We were really counting on this money to get bills caught up but its not happening. I don't know what we're gonna do. I may be having to just post this way with no pictures for a while. Sorry Redfurd, no new pictures!
Ooooo Mommy is PiSsEd at a darn dog too! Some stupid person let their rabid mean dog out and he KILLED our neighbor kitty,Scabby!!!! This was Saturday I think. Scabby's bean daddy was outside waiting for him with a gun but couldn't get him. We are scared that this dog will hurt one of the kids (they have a little girl). Landon likes to run in the yard when going to or from the car & the dog could run up & hurt him. Mom doesn't even want to walk to the mailbox. Apparently the dog killed other kitties recently too. One lady thinks she knows who he belongs to and that the lady could care less what her dog has done. So Colin our neighbor(Scabbys owner) is going to look into it. Don't get them wrong we all love doggies and Colin has 3, but with what this one did, it is unforgiveable. Scabby was such a sweet and loveable cat. He seemed as much ours as he was theirs. He would run over to greet us every time we went outside. And now he's gone because some lady let her beast into a neighborhood full of KIDS and other small pets. Ok, this is just getting me worked up again so I'm gonna go. Just wanted to leave a little update on everything...and to sum up in one word....BAD!!!

Hey everyone. I am awake and up with Mommy. She's had a rough day so I am following her around and meowing very loudly to make her feel better. She keeps telling me to be quiet, to not wake Eli back up.
Oh, and Redfurd *sigh* I would love to come by for some snuggles!
Well, I hope everyone is inside and nice and toasty today!
See you all later. I will try to leave a few comments but its a lot slower doing it from a BlackBerry. Toodles!

So, mom has also made 2 scarfs in that time. One took less than a day and the other was her first and took a bit more time to figure out. Now, with some left over yarn, she is going to make me one of these: She found this picture when doing a search for crochet/knit cat toys and is going to make me one!!! Yay! I can't wait.
Well, mom says she needs the 'puter to look up more pattens for her crochet stuff.
I hope everyone had a nice and safe Thanksgiving. OH, and it's snowing here in NW Alabama right now!!! May not "stick" but if there IS some accumulated when daddy gets home, the beans will get to go out and play in it. I usually get taken out so I can smell the snowflakes. It's fun when they land on my nose because they tickle!
Ok, Ok,Mommy. I am done now!!!

PeeEss: Mommy has signed up to make money online doing surveys! Fun stuff. She's already got quite a bit accumulated. Hmmm, maybe this means more Temptations for me!!!! I have included a link incase you would like to check it out. I promised Mom I'd post about it if she gave me some stinky goodness for breakfast, so...here I am posting about it!
Tuesday, November 25, 2008
PeeEss: Don't mind the curtains over the top of the window. That's because the beans pull on them...
Monday, November 24, 2008
Well, it's almost Thanksgiving, which means it's almost Christms!! I better get started on Red's present!!! But, I can't tell you what it is b/c he will read this and know what I am getting/making! hehe
Purrs to you all, ~Gizmo

Grandma had surgery on Monday and is doing well. She came home Wednesday afternoon and has been lounging on the couch ever since. She has to be out of school, she's a teacher, for a whole month. Oh and while they were at the hospital Great-Grandma was feeling very bad. She has lots of problems with her older age and they said she was sitting in a wheel chair so she didnt have to walk around and all a sudden her head just fell over and she was non-responsive for a bit. She woke up or whatever it was and said she wanted to take a pain pill. So, they found an empty bed and had her lie down for a bit. Things are going down not slowly, but not fast too, for great-grandma and everyone knows it. When Landon was born in '06 the Step-Great-Grandpa
(her Husband) was a few floors up in a hospital room too. He never got to see Landon. It was sad.
Ok, I have had enough of all this sadness! I need to cheer up!!! Hmmm, How about a WWE Smackdown party tonight?!? Any of you watch wrestling? My adult beans like it. Mommy's favorites are Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, and John Cena! Oh, and who doesn't love the Undertaker!?! I admit it, I sit on the back of the couch and stare at the tv...they say I'm weird.
Here are some videos of the above mentioned guys.

Oh, and I think it was T'abby Normal who told me about the "Gimp" software. Thank you! Mommy downloaded it and is going to try it out later!
P.S. Mommy finally got the bean, Landon's headshots from the lady last night. She's a little peeved. The lady said she would photoshop his busted & bruised lip when she took the pictures. Well, she didn't do a single one! They wouldn't have gotten them taken if she wasn't going to fix them. They would have waited a bit. It took her 2 weeks to put about 20 pictures on a disk and give it to us, without fixing them. So, mommy did it herself in about five minutes. See, you can't even tell he had a busted lip! So, why did this lady take 2+weeks to get them to us and not even do what she said she would?
Anyway, Landon's headshots are for a talent/modeling agency in our town. Mommy hopes he gets to do some stuff here and there and they are planning on putting the money in the savings account at the bank. Oh, and Eli is doing it aswell. But, don't worry mommy says that it's not going to turn into a crazy parents trying to get their kids on tv type of thing. Just a way to help with the future college fund. :-) Click to biggify and see how good Mommy did on the pic! The second one is using the new Gimp software and Mommy is still figuring it out. So, you can still tell a little bit where his booboo was. The third, well, we will call it an outtake!
*edit*:Mommy can't get them to click to biggify, anyone know why?
Hope everyone has a nice and sleepy weekend. Daddy is off for the next 4 days. Yay!

So, see the evil gate in this picture? That monster keeps me from getting in the living room. Normally I wouldnt want to go in there anyway because of the beans messing with me, but when it is closed I HAVE to be right there watching everything that happens. I give Mommy a sad look from the other side of the prison gate, but she says things like "You don't want in here! The boys will get after you!" I guess she is right...
Chloe/Update: She came home from the Funeral Home on Tuesday. She is in a little white box and is right next to Tigger's ashes from a few years ago. Grandma said that when grandpa came in with the pet carrier that Snowy and Sandy came up to it looking for her. When they didn't see her, they ran and hid from them. She said that every so often Sandy would come and peek his head around the corner and look at them then run and hide again. They know something is not right. Poor kitties.
I also wanted to ask you all two questions.
1.)When you make those pretty pictures, what photo editing software do you use? Mommy can't afford PhotoShop, so we need a free something to use. She has a trial of something that costs $100 to purchase, but that's still a little high for the budget right now. Anyone have any ideas what she could use? You can email her/send her a suggestion to her email if you would like: apeclems(at)comcast.net Just replace the "(at)" with @ when you send it.
2.)I have seen some poems about the Rainbow Bridge and was wondering if any of you could point me in the right direction to find a good one for grandma to give to her with her scrapbook that is going to have pictures of Chloe in it..
Thanks Effuryone in advance for your help!

Luffs, Gizmo <3Are any of you getting to go trick-or-treating? I don't get to. But, the beans are going and will be getting lots of candies! Daddy promised he would give me some stinky goodness while they go out getting the candy! Landon is going to be a little Renaissance boy. Eli will be a Giraffe. Daddy is, of course, going as Kid Rock. Mommy has no idea what to be, so she's thinking of throwing on some pj's and a house coat and putting curlers in her hair and going as a plain old house wife. Poor mommy...she couldnt find her Tennessee Vols cheerleading outfit she made a year ago, so she is limited to what she can be. I am going to be a sleepy kitty with a tummy full of stinky goodness! haha! What are you going to be?

Grandmommy says that Chloe is doing lots better. She is still weak at times and wants to play but just cant find the energy. Her lungs are looking better too. She is still on antibiotics and they are saying that they couldnt find the hole in her heart yesterday when she went back! Holy Cow! They couldnt find it! That's good news. Maybe good things will keep happening for her! Again, thank you all for your kind prayers and thoughts. Chloe is getting better everyday.
Oh, and Redfurd, I feel like I have been neglecting you with my girlfriendly duties. Mom hasnt been able to help me get online (other than her blackberry) because she has been having her own troubles the past two days. But, she's feeling much better today!
Luffs & Purrs, Gizmo <3

Thanks you everyone for asking about her.
Friday, October 24, 2008
Well, mom was supposed to have her there at 3:30cst, so I should have another update in a bit. Please say more prayers and send purs her way. This is making my mother feel very sad. And I have no idea how Snowy is feeling. She is Chloe's twin. So, they are usually inseparable and if all goes bad, then she will probably be very saddened as well.
Ok, well we are getting a new couch and love seat tomorrow morning. I gotta clean up the living room and figure out a way to get this old recliner couch out the door. My husband isn't home yet, and I am tired from the day of worrying about Chloe, keeping up with the boys, and trying to figure out how we are going to fit the new couch/ls in here tomorrow...
PeeEs: Mommy got the sniffles helping me type this. :-)

But, I do want to say that I am going to try to get better at leaving comments for everybody who leaves me one. It's hard to do with a Mommy who is always having to do something with/for the beans. And we all know I am not good at typing on a laptop. Hehe.
Oh, and Redfurd, I hope you're having a good weekend! I am going to try to get mommy to make a nice picture of me and you together soon!
Saturday, October 18, 2008
So, hope everyone has a great weekend!
My Luffs to Redfurd! *sigh*
