Frantically Scrambling

Hello, blogging friends. and Blog-reading friends. And friends that just happen to be web surfing. And ... Well, whoever you are, hello.

Have you missed me?

I have all kinds of wonderfully different reasons why I have only posted once in the last seven days. Would you like to hear them? Of course you would.

1. I had nothing to say. (Sorry, I couldn't even write that with a straight face. And I know you won't be able to read it without laughing!)

2. My left index finger fell off and I couldn't type the letters, g, r, t, f, v, or b. By the time I composed a post that contained none of those letters, I got my replacement finger in the mail.

3. We had two plunger incidents at the house this past week. Need I say more?

4. I ate Oscar Mayer beef hot dogs for the first time, and I've been composing a poem in their honor. I'm almost done.

5. I have a tree in my backyard.

6. I have seven males in my house. Need I say more?

7. I've been focusing on cowboy stuff for our VBS, and cowboys don't use computers.

8. It took me three days to get pictures of my kittens to show you. Seriously. It did take three days. Those things are never still unless they're sleeping. And usually if they're sleeping, I'm sleeping too.

Aren't they just too cute for words? 

And they pose. The white one is a male and we named him Ronon Dex, after a character on Stargate Atlantis. The calico has a brown streak that looks like it's drizzled all over her, so we named her Mocha Drizzle. So we have Dex and Drizzle.

Drizzle tends to be a bit of a camera hog.

And Dex was really too tired to pose properly.

Okay, enough pictures. One more and I would have to rename this blog Crazy Cat Lady, and that's just a sad thought. 

Back to my reasons for not blogging:

9. Lid, from 2nd Cup of Coffee has suspended Random Dozen for the month of June. Not only am I devastated, but now I have to think up my own topics for blog posts on Wednesdays. I'm not sure I can handle the pressure.

10. I have seven males in my house. Did I mention that? They're time consuming, and none of them can find anything without help. Even if it's right in front of them.

I know most of you probably didn't even realize I was gone, but humor me and pretend you did. My ego is fragile.

How has your week gone?


  1. I blame the holiday weekend...I think lots of us are off track. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

    The kitties are adorable!

    I'm sad to see no Random, mostly because I catch up with some blogs that way on Wednesdays. You have kittens now so you can always take pics and link up with wordless wednesdays : )

  2. Plunger incidents??!!
    I see many plunger incidents in my future.

  3. 7 males? Bless your heart! You don't need to say anything more!

  4. What a funny post! I love your kitties, especially Dex who reminds me of my former kitty, Mischief.

  5. AWWWWWWWWWWWW! Kitties!
    I'm curious to see if Dex will become more and more dark with age. My Cat Cassie was all white with a "mask" and the older she got her whiteness turned tan then black over time. She had the blue eyes too. Tell me, are they funny? Kittens do the funniest things!

  6. Seven you need a girls weekend :) Those kittens are adorable, we went to my brother's last weekend and now we have a kitten coming to live with us via my Mom.
