Goodbye to Bugs

Bugs, a very loving, black cat, is gone tonight. He is buried in our backyard. M is now with out any cats. That would be very lonley.

I'll post more later this week - for now - I hope everyone has a good week and that it is as short or as long as one hopes it will be.

Happiness and health to all.

Relaxful Day

Today I had a very relaxful day. K and I didn't get in the shower until after 12!! We got up and read our paper and drank some coffee - oh I love that! :) We then made waffles and ate some breakfast! They were yummy!! We then worked on a rough draft for the cabin, discussed some finances, and then got showered and started some laundry etc. It was just very relaxing. We put some stuff on ebay, and then we went and had dinner tonight for K's birthday at THE KEG. Upon returning home tonight, the phone rang immediately. It was M, K's friend.

Rather than having a relaxing night tonight.......she is with her at the vet trying to figure out what is wrong with one of her cats. I feel bad for K as she was wanting to relax and take a bath and just enjoy each other today (after a busy, hustled weekend) before the busy work week and here she is getting swept off again to rescue another friend! :( *huge sigh*

I hope this work week goes by fast!! I have been the courier and word processor and our courier has been going to school PT (so when she isn't in the office, I am courier) the middle of March she will be full time and let me tell you, I CANNOT WAIT!

Gotta go.....they had to put the cat down and she's bringing it here to bury - HORRIBLE.

More later.

Chillin' Out

Today I am just chilling out and hanging out! :) Last night we went to Aunt Tom and Uncle Mary's and had some dinner with my parents that are camping out there for a bit! Woke up this morning and got ready and kind of cleaned up a bit. There is talk that DeWayne, Ryan's to-be-officially-engaged-to boyfriend may come and clean our carpets today (YAHOO!) He's a kirby sales man. For those who haven't met him, you'll have the chance to either Memorial Day of the 4th of July. Tonight I think we are going to a silent auction with Jenae. That'll be fun.

Nothing too exciting going on.

Thoughts Of Today...

There has been a lot of talk of babies around our household latley and it gets me so excited, so discouraged and into an emotional mess sometimes! :( I have ways (or ideas of ways) that I'd love to raise my kids. I have witnessed many families in the midst of some ways, others I have pulled from my own life - lived - and learned.

One way, I am surely going to parent is: Attachment Parenting!

Attachment Parenting in Brief is: Attachment Parenting is a philosophy based in the practice of nurturing parenting practices that create strong emotional bonds, also known as secure attachment, between the infant and parent(s). This style of parenting encourages responsiveness to the infant or child's emotional needs, and develops trust that their emotional needs will be met. As a result, this strong attachment helps the child develop secure, empathic, peaceful, and enduring relationships.

I will to breastfeed (for longer than a year) and cloth diaper. I hope to also co-sleep.

K and I have some different views on some of the above concepts........but I'm sure when the time comes we'll find a happy medium and we'll both be great mommies! :) here's to getting pregnant!! We'll be trying again in March.........*fingers crossed*

The above has been on my mind a lot latley....wanting the best for my children, for them to feel secure in who they are and for them to be independent. I sure hope to get good tips and advice from the old wise ones of my blog! :o)

I'm going to sign off with a few pictures of the furry felines that attempt to trip us at most of our foot movements........and add a laugh or two to our day - any many snuggles at night.

My First Blog Entry

Who'd ever thought that I'd be blogging? I remember thinking to myself one day "What in the world is a blog!" and then some very precious family members of mine started one for their sailing trip and I got hooked at checking it daily, and now am hooked at checking others daily. My life isn't THAT exciting, but I can post a few interesting things on here, including pictures. :)

On Monday, K and I purchased a cute cabin/shed/cottage at the Seattle Home Show. We will be placing it at Coulee upon destruction, demolition, and a few other things to be done. Here's a "sample" of what it looks like - minus the decks and carport.

Pretty cute huh? We are very excited!!

My parents, sister and boyfriend will be over on our side of the mountains this weekend. We'll be celebrating some birthdays and enjoying each others company - to the best of our abilities.

I'm going to wrap it up here for tonight.....I'll post some pictures soon of various items, including our awesome hike to Orcas Island for those few that haven't got to see them yet!
