A Little bit of Something...

Okay so I know it has been awhile, so I wanted to at least say something. "Something" there I said it! LOL! Naw, just kidding!

After my last post, I am truly blessed with such good and thoughful friends, yall are awesome!

It has still been hard on the family, but most especially on my brother. Which in turn makes it hard on us to see him suffering so. But we will get past it and resume some sort of normalcy(is that a word?).

Now on to other things.
I have come to realise that my cats have to be the stupidest cats ever. (Just a slight warning this might be a tad too much information.) Now I have always had a cat, most of all those times I have always had an indoor cat or two or three. Indoor cats require a litter box. I have gone through all sorts of sizes of litter boxes trying to find just the right size for certain cats. Usually this is not that much of a big deal. BUT I currently have the biggest size I have ever had and these stupid cats still manage to poop on the edge. Aggrevates me to no end, how hard can it be to actually get "it" into the box?! It's the largest box ever!! Lets not even go to the subject of actually covering it up. Okay lets do, for just a little...Whiskers is the worst at covering! He will scratch at the wall, the rug and even sometimes the shelf right next to the box, but never will he touch his paw to the litter for the art of covering. All I can do is shake my head and do cleanup. Ohh and lets not forget all the litter spillage they manage to do. Well actually that is Peach's doing, she can really get messy with her art of covering, almost to an obsession.

Well...thanks to my hubby's sister we now have an extremely large litter box, complete with a hood. The cats have to actually climb (not step) into the box. This sucker is soo big, I had to do some rearranging in the bathroom just to get it to fit. We will see if this sovles any of "our" problems. Today is its first day and so far things are looking up. I caught Whiskers actually covering it up!
Yesterday we went to hubby's mommas house for his birthday, I never get to bake him a cake cause his momma does. No point in having two cakes for just us two to eat. Goodness we are big enough already! Anyway... I was out in the back yard and saw something I wanted to get a photo of. I went back inside to my purse to get my camera. I pulled it out of my purse and wow, it was hot! I felt down in my purse and all was cool in there but the camera was HOT. I quickly realised it was the battery compartment that was hot and opened it up and let the batteries slide into my hand. Wowza! Hot potato, hot potato! They were melted to gether and as hot as fire. I rushed them out the door, I couldn't think what to do with them, not knowing if they were going to explode or not.

After the camera cooled down, I tried putting some new batteries in it and it wouldn't come on, I did that four times before I gave up. I was soo distraught at the prospect that it was broken and now I am without a camera. As soon as we got back home, I hit the internet like a mad woman on a mission to find a decent camera in my price range. With my price range being so little, it was more difficult than it would be for most. After a good while..for some reason (lets call it denial), I tried my camera again. Walla! It works! Weird and freaky! I am soooooo glad it works, but concerned as to why that happened in the first place.
I finally finished blanket #4 of this winter season and halfway finished with a baby blanket to be donated to Ft Hood's massive baby shower for soldiers or soldier's wives who are expecting. Bf is donating 3 baby hats and bootie sets.
That is all I can think of for right now. Yall have a great day!!

I know the litter box problem. Glad my cat Susie has her's in the garage. My daughter has five inside cats and she finally bought one of those automatic cleaning ones. I think she wasn't even satisfied with it.

I had a scary camera moment once too - a couple of years ago, I went canoeing with some friends and insisted on taking my little camera with me - the one that lives in my purse now, but was my only camera at that time. Husband said No, don't take it. I took it. We capsized. Camera to bottom of river. I retrieved it. Took it home. Husband laughed at me. I was humbled. Let it sit for a couple of days, it dried out and has been working since. I was saved!

Happy Birthday to the hubby!

Keep an eye on the camera though, overheated batteries can't be a good sign. My camera is having the opposite problem, almost instantly drains my batteries. I'm working toward getting a new one too, maybe for MY birthday. ;)

All my cats have different litter box habits. One loves to cover everyone’s poop, another won't cover his own. Then there is Tomoe, if the box isn't as clean as she thinks it should be, she dumps it and poops on the floor next to the box. I really can't get mad she only does this if I already planned on cleaning the boxes..
I have been having camera trouble since I got a digital camera last January. I had to replace the camera already once, then the new one I had in for repair twice I just took it back a third time and had to yell to get them to listen.. They really didn’t I will try again on Monday. I bought a separate warranty on the camera both times. It is depressing; I can’t afford a new warranty when I replace the second camera. I need to get a Tin cup and start begging…lol

Maybe once your camera cooled off it worked again?
Stay well.
