Personal Information:
I live in Central Wisconsin. I retired from my job as a speech therapist for a local school district in June 2008. Then I worked part time until June 2012. Now I am fully retired. I have been married for 35 years. We only have fur kids. Mostly we've owned dogs but in November 2013 we decided to give a kitty a chance. Tony is quite an experience.

Other Information:
I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. My favorite thing to do is to walk the dogs. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2011 so we have had to change the way we cook and eat. For the most part, it has been a positive change. He has other health problems that limit his mobility so I care for him as needed. I also share the care for my aging father and my stepmother who has dementia.

    Maybe but I think morning rituals was the winning reason, the stick like glue!

    Glad to hear that things seem to be going well at your house. Hope Molly's little setback was a one time thing. It sounds as though Tony is just afraid that he'll miss something. Has to make sure that the dogs aren't pulling one over on him. At least he has his space heater to cuddle up to emoticon

    I seem to be up and down with the motivation. Some days I'm more up for work than others. Yesterday, I really wore myself out. Today was so nice that I was able to open all the doors and windows, and really air the house out. Plus it was warm enough to be outside in just a t-shirt. Hard to believe! I washed down all the doors, including the storm doors - they really needed it. I'd never be this motivated if it weren't for trying to list the house, though.

    Glad the humans in your household have stayed healthy! I have done pretty well, too. Just that one week last month, but at least that was over pretty quickly.

    Hope you have a great weekend. Hugs and headbutts to all!

    I'm so glad she's on the way back. Maybe it's like 2 steps forward, 1 step back. Poor little girl! I love the Tony comment...he's at his head butt best in the morning! You had me chuckling out loud at that!
    Lily is at her head best butt in the evening, when we go to bed :)

    Hugs and head best butts all around!
    To Molly, Charlie and Tony! Who did I forget??

    You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
