Happy Friday all !!! I hope you are gearing up for a great weekend.
It's already the end of September. Life has been so very busy and ups and downs but mostly good. I am still sparking and sparkling - just not blogging.
Last night was a freak show - some random person sent me a facebook request. I have no idea who she was so I emailed her back- Hello how do we know each other? Well soon I get an email - about how she saw my cat outside her window having a bloody poop - so she took the cat into the vet and the microchip said she belonged to me but that my number was no longer up to date and she wondered if I was the right person. Along with some weird comments about cat being super skinny and having a hefty vet bill in the future.
I freaked out - I mean WHAT ???? I have had my cat for 13 years - she's always been an outdoor cat - she is wise to the world, just not crazy cat ladies I guess !! So this happens at 6 pm - I have no way to contact her except facebook...so I did some sleuthing !!! AMAZING what you can find out online...I mean I know where she works...I know who her boyfriend is and where he works...just no address or phone number.
I left messages on facebook and gave her my phone number...and nothing. It was going to be the longest night of my life. My fiance knocked on a few doors and I took a drive. I thought I knew where they lived and was going to knock - glad I didn't LOL It was the wrong people !! I knew I had to stay calm and pray and remember that this woman was concerned for the cat so Molly was in good hands !
Finally at 10 pm - just as I had resided myself to a sleepless night - she calls. She is my neighbor - there is one house between ours - she said she'd be home in an hour. 11:30 pm - Molly is safe and sound at home with us.
And the giant mystery is solved !!! The girl's cat was killed crossing the street two weeks ago - so this woman I was perceiving as a crazy person was actually just hyper sensitive and being vigilant or maybe shopping for a new cat? Anyways - happy ending !!!
This morning Neal and I were telling our neighbor about the story - and we were laughing - imagining there were wanted posters put up around the neighborhood - Have you seen this couple? They claim to have lost a cat. Warning they are weird !! LOL
October is a big month !! My mom and dad are coming next weekend to help me buy my wedding dress. This is stressful !! I hate trying on clothes, let alone an outfit I will have photos in forever. And there are HUGE urges to weigh myself. I have committed that I will NOT weigh myself. I am doing well and I do not want the number on the scale to send me in to a tailspin. I remind myself - I am feeling much better about how I look - I have lost weight - my clothes fit very differently. I continue to focus on food and exercise and not the weight.
Mid October we are moving !! So excited !! And feeling really blessed. My parents are bringing a uhaul of furniture for us !! It started out with my mom replacing her sofas and saying they'd bring the old ones up to me. Then my grandmother decided to move in with my aunt and she has a two bedroom condo to clear out - so there is tons more furniture coming our way !!!! It's amazing !!! All about timing and generosity from my family. Another aunt has even donated a couple of chairs to the pile !! So blessed !
On last thing to get off my chest - I have an exam to write at the end of October and time spent on all this other stuff and not enough on studying - which I really need to do !! Of course knowing that I have to do it - puts me in procrastination mode. It's like I want to succeed but at least if I do not try I have a reason why I didn't !! So silly !!! Need to get motivated.
Happy Friday !
