So, I got a new baby kitten & named her Buffy. My big ginger tom is VERY unhappy with me at the moment, won't stop hissing & swearing. I hope he'll get used to her soon. I'm thinking that playing with a baby kitty at home instead of sitting w... Read more

DEFINITELY banished the 160's

Haven't blogged in a while....have had a rough few weeks. My ex-husband's younger brother died suddenly at 41 & the family asked me to speak at the funeral, which was stressful. I got sick with the flu on Easter. Now I think my Crohn's is fla... Read more
