Walmart is always sending me stuff that I didn't order, and they always tell me to keep it. It's expensive stuff like a cat carrier and dog flea collar. I don't even have a dog, so gave it to my brother. Then a couple times we got tons of food in our pickup order that belonged to somebody else, but they just told us to keep it. That was fun.I reported the issue to Walmart, telling them that I was sure it happened during shipping. God bless them, they refunded my entire order.
That says it all. Thank you, same back to you, and they do need us, as we need them.Stay safe, stay happy, stay healthy. Our cats need us.
I don't drink alcohol anymore, but my coffee and flavored creamers/cappuccinos definitely are some of the little things that keep me going. Along with cheese, pasta, hot sauce, and my kitties... It's important to just keep going, then better times can come hopefully.After a glass of hot mulled cider, I may feel better!
I don't have holidays now, and although I love and look forward to Autumn and Winter I don't ever love all the holiday stuff. I try to just enjoy it as secular holiday but it isn't easy.Is anybody else feeling depressed at this season of great joy!
It's the first Sunday in Advent, but although I'm doing my best, putting a few white lights and stars up outside and hanging a wreath on the front door, I cannot get even mildly excited about Christmas. In fact I'm feeling quite miserable - and not only because I have taken Tiffany's 3 kittens to their new home.
I've kept myself busy disinfecting their enclosure and rescuing all their toys from under and behind the furniture. Tiffany is still attacking the other cats, but only because she's frightened. No cat can be bothered to retaliate so she could easily stop growling and just ignore them. Although she has started playing with toys, she continues to spend her time either crouching behind the front door hoping to be let out or begging for food when I happen to be in the kitchen. She still has her dishes and litter boxes in the room where she kept her kittens so she doesn't have to compete with the rest of the clan. At night, I shut her in the room so we can all have a good night's sleep.
But, I can't snap out of this feeling of despair. Accidents and deaths on icy roads happen at this time every year. COVID-19 has been with us long enough for us to have got used to it. New variants turn up regularly, so why can't I respond to all the happy posts "Have a nice first Sunday in Advent" with something positive and heartfelt? I'll have to think of a standard reply - or should I just say "I'm ignoring Christmas this year."
I don't usually drink alcohol on my own, but I have a bottle of cider and recently purchased ASPEN cider spices at an early Christmas market held at a farm for rescued dairy cattle. I am strongly tempted. After a glass of hot mulled cider, I may feel better!
I've cheered myself up just thinking about it!
Back at'cha! So many of us are down in this time, for many different reasons. But the good thing is, these times will pass! AND...we have our beloved CATS with us to bring comfort, sweetness, loyalty and love, warmth and softness, silliness, playfulness, camaraderie and maybe even a seasonal furball or twoI wish everyone a good week. Take each day as it comes and try to see the good in it. I do find myself depressed too around this time of year. I had been watching the Hallmark Christmas movies-which really leaves me depressed in the end. I am going through a bad bout of insomia, so that definitely a factor. I am hanging in there. So for anyone else feeling depressed during these holidays --know you are not alone. Big hugs from me. Hang in there!
Thank you. I call my neighbors behind my house--The Light House Keeper because they do the same thing. I do wear a eye mask, so that helps at times, but this week was one of the bad weeks. Just a stubborn case of insomia.Back at'cha! So many of us are down in this time, for many different reasons. But the good thing is, these times will pass!

I was really stressed last night as my next door neighbor left his floodlight on...I thought, oh, I've had two restful nights without it where I thought my note to them worked! and now THIS! but eventually he/they shut it off, before I turned in, so I was able to sleep. I'm sure I disturb Baby Su and Elvis a lot more than they do me, during the night. Somehow, we make it through. Hoping you have furry bed partner(s) to help you, too!
I was so mad! because I don't want to have to put another mask on to sleep. But the guy/family had the decency to understand and so my leaving a note had a good result.Thank you.

I have my lovely indoor kitty to keep me company and then all the furries outside. Which reminds me--time feed them again so they have something in their tummies for the night. Well, got to run. Have a good night tarasgirl06 and everyone else. I will be back on again tomorrow.
Count me in. One of my very close cousins passed away without warning 5 days ago. We were just talking about her many collection of plants, then the next day I learned she had a heart attack. Our family has lost several just within the recent months, including my biological father, and even so, it does not make us numb from all the shock and grief and sadness. One thing I always learn from losing someone is that everyday we have to tell the people we hold dear how much we love them, and take lots of pictures WITH them. Tomorrow they may no longer be around to fill your phone gallery.Is anybody else feeling depressed at this season of great joy!
