housekeeping

last night i was looking back at some of my posts and i realized that i used to be a better blogger, at least in my mind. my posts used to have a topic rather than random rambling. don't get me wrong, i like random rambling and will not stop doing that, however, i am going to try (try being the operative word) to stay focused occasionally when i post.

i added a little link list of my fave posts on the side if you're interested.

***i'm still having comment issues. i have the email notification thing set so each time someone comments i get an email. this is good because sometimes people comment on older posts. however, for the last month or so this is only working with some people. on one hand this is neat because when i go to my blog i am pleasantly surprised with comments. on the other hand, if i don't check every post i miss comments and i hate that and i hate that you think i'm not responding to your comments, because i do try to respond to every one. so, if you comment and i don't say anything, i probably did not know you commented. i'll keep trying to figure out what the hitch is, but, i'm not a technology wizard so i'm not hopeful.

***this morning i witnessed one of the many reasons i love the hubs. we have been having cat issues at our house. this weekend, my cat, the 17-year-old, had a rough time. he was acting...old. i don't know how else to describe it. he was having a hard time moving around. he seemed more confused than normal. it was rough. the hubs and i (mostly the hubs) tended to him 24/7. we'd hand feed him; hold him; follow him around the house. monday he made a come back and actually is doing well now, though dry cat food seems a challenge for him. they used to make soft cat food, not canned wet stuff, but soft, like cat treats are now. rebel ate a lot of treats over the weekend. yes, i realize diet-wise this isn't the best, but he's 17, it's not like he needs to watch his cholesterol. this morning the hubs made scrambled eggs for the cat. isn't that the sweetest thing you've ever heard? (he also dosed princess meow meow--who lost her voice monday night and might have a viral infection (we're waiting to hear from the vet) and put salve in jasper's eyes).

That's awesome. We do the same sort of stuff for our pets.

P.S. There are awards for you at my site.

How about some tuna, packed in water for the old man kitteh? It will give him nutrients, and be easy to eat, AND he'll love love love it.
And good on Hubs. That's very sweet.
