So I am now in my third week of having no ability to visit from work, and I can't tell you how depressed it has me that I can't visit my friends easily. On top of that I went to check my email for the holiday card exchange and guess what - it was empty. Like ZERO emails - boy I was sad, til I realized it was because the form was set up wrong and it wasn't forwarding the emails. So if you want to exchange cards PLEASE resend me your info. I am going to set up a list of everyone as a page (with a tab at the top). I am also going to send to people I sent to last year - my question to everyone is do I send cards to those who aren't blogging anymore or would that be weird?
I am trying to get some visiting in today. I am so behind it is just awful - I know about the whole blogging without obligation thing but this isn't obligation, this is just missing my friends! And with the stupid headaches I have been getting (between weather and stress it sucks) and trying to get ready for Thanksgiving it is just so tough! Plus my house is just not really set up well for being on the computer - ever since we got the new couches it has been tough, but at least I could visit from work before. Now it just sucks. Can I tell you how clean and defragmented my hard drive at work is - BECAUSE I HAVE NOTHING TO DO AND GET SO BORED I DO DISK CLEAN UP AND DEFRAGMENT EVERY DAY!! I have paint, and Microsoft Office, and that is it. I can look at some sites, I have looked at my compaines sites a million times and I can get to parts of the paper - but anything interesting or fun (blogs, email, shopping, even today in the Tribune I tried to click on the Eva Longoria divorce story and got blocked) and I get the big "YOUR COMPANY INTERNET POLICY PROHIBITS YOU LOOKING AT THIS SITE" message. Oh, and the girl I work with who has full internet now - well she is about to loose it because her hard drive crashed yesterday and needs to be replaced. And they will block the same way on her machine. I couldn't even participate in our companies online meeting because of it (I told them, they didn't care).
Ok, so enough whining about me. The cats are doing good. Kirzon is on his medicine for his mouth and got a shot to keep him from having any allergy issues with it, and both the medicine and the shot seem to be working. Virgil is being his usual self - he is walking around yelling a lot and wanting to play, and he chases Lola any time she comes out of her room. Lola is good but I wish she would come out more. Barney is well, Barney - he is having some eye issues - they had gotten better but are bad again (I realize they get mucky around the times I get headaches so both must be weather related). Gus and Stella are super cute as always. I have a bunch of videos I have taken - some of me trying to get Gus's meow on tape, others that I just took. I posted them all below - it is a lot but well, I feel bad that I have not been visiting/blogging like before (and yes, I still know about BWO but seriously, I feel guilty if I look at a stuffed animal in the store and then don't buy it, so just understand I am a bit mental). I hope you all like them - I decided that even though I sound like a babbling idiot, and even though there are some weird stomach gurgling noises from me in the background, well, I would just post them anyway.
Sorry I am so depressing with the blog/visiting/computer talk lately - it just makes me really sad to not see all of you much anymore!!
Oh, and before I forget, I just did our Santa Paws donation from the commentathon! We donated $50 cash, a $20 cat gift bag and a $20 dog gift bag! Thanks so much for commenting and helping all the cats and dogs again this year!!
Ok, now here are a bunch of videos!
