Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Sorry we disapeared!

I hate this stupid work internet block so much. I am so sad and tired when I get home that I haven't been up to blogging, then we had internet problems over the weekend. I hate that I am so behind, and I hate that I keep complaining about it because I know there are lots of worse things going on in the CB. Friends who are sick, friends who had to leave for the bridge, friends who's moms and dads don't even have jobs. I hate that I keep complaining about it, so from now on I am not going to anymore. Only positivie thoughts!

I am trying to get caught up now - I will be off work on Thursday and Friday and will have a chance to do a bit then, and I just will do the best I can until then.  I saw that the winners were announced for the Halloween contest - and that Milo was so sweet to ask that his toys go to Chystal for the Winnie's Wishes kitties! Well, Milo, we will do that for you of course!

And well, I have also been bad about keeping up with Hugo - he is going to the Katnip Lounge I think - I will have to check. Oh, and I am also being bad about adding links - because I am on my laptop upstairs, so it isn't on the base and I don't have my mouse (so anything involving selecting is out of the question - I just stink at the touch pad thing). I will add them but it will be later. I will find Hugo and let you know but I think I am correct.

And speakinig of days off - Thursday is by birthday (the big 39 - I admit it) so of course it is time for our Santa Paws Commentathon!! I am super late posting about it - again, the lack of access sucks - but I did get a badge made (I only had PowerPoint to use at work but I think it looks ok!) So, like last year we are doing a commentathon. This year is only going to be on 11./11, but I think we will get a good turn out.  So we will donate 25 cents for every comment between 12:01 am and 11:59 pm CST on 11/11 - and if you want to comment a couple times it is ok, but don't go all crazy and obnoixious and just post silly spam to up the count - that is not fair to me (because not only does my job suck but the pay is pretty awful).  Like last year the donation will go to Santa Paws!!  If you want to post on your blog, here is the badge I made.

I am sure there is more I need to talk about but I can't think of it. Well, of course, I haven't talked about the cats yet - so here is an update!

Well, the cats are all nuts. Yep, crazy.  We got ham (honey baked ham - the only kind I like) and well, most of them were not too interested - so weird.  Kirzon is starting to rub his mouth again so there may be a vet trip in his future, and Barney may be going too, because his eyes are mucky. I thought it might be allergies but I would think that would have cleared up at some point (though it has gotten warm here again).  Lola is hanging out in her room (where I am at now) and has been ok, but has had a couple nights where she was a bit lonely. Brad slept in here one night, and I did spend a bit of extra time with her.  Virgil is good, and has been his usual self, and Stella and Gus are growing up great. Stella is still tiny (well, for our house!) and Gus is between Barney and Virgil.  He is totally a sweetheart too.  He and Barney have been snuggling with me a lot, I think they know I am sad.  But it could be because it is getting cooler too (though it is quite warm this week - maybe up to 70 on Wednesday).

Ok, so that is all for now - I will be visiting as much as I can and hope to say hi to everyone eventually.  Oh, and if you have emailed me, well, I am behind in checking that too. I am working on trying to get caught up with that but so far blogs have been my first choice.

I will try to get some pictures up tomorrow - I hope that the cats are in a posing mood when I get home!!

Oh dear Amy!
We are sorry about the internet block at work. I completely understand how you feel. Wish there was some way I could help you think to work around it.
Don't feel bad at all about venting, we all need to, and I completely 'get it' about feeling the behind all the time.
When I am on my netbook at night I can't copy/paste easily either. I usually have Abby in my lap and one hand on the netbook which is teeny anyway, so I understand how difficult it is to use the copy/paste stuff.
A pre happy purrday to you!
We'll definitely come by and comment on the 11th!


Deborah said...

Don't worry, us bloggy friends understand....I've been swamped too and it is hard to keep up! But that's 100% OK.
Hey, Happy Be-early Birthday..I've been 39 already and it's fun!

BeadedTail said...

We understand so it's okay if you can't visit much! We saw Hugo in Vegas at the Katnip Lounge! He was having so much fun he might not leave!

We hope Kirzon and Barney are okay. We're sending purrs!

Brian said...

Yep, we understand and it sure has got to be frustrating, we hate it if the internet goes away for even a few minutes!

Katnip Lounge said...

Hugo has landed! And we are all having a blast! He's a purrfect guest.

The work thing stinks...That's where I keep up with everyone. I wouldn't do half the commenting if it wasn't for work. Your employers are poopooheads!
heh heh.

Don't stress! Stuff happens for a reason, even if the only reason is to drive you crazy...

Katnip Lounge said...

Pee Ess: 39 ROCKS!

Cat said...

Amy, Amy, Amy, we missed you , it's nice to see you back! The work block must just be awful we all totally understand if you need to vent :-) Isn't Milo a wonderful boy to donate his toys to Winnie's wish! I think your commentathon sounds fantastic, we will definitely be over to leave a few words :-) Keep smiling!

PS - Da Bird may be the best toy ever invented...Ash is just crazy for it!

Ayla and Iza, said...

Amy, we appreciate a Bein who is so busy but still thinks about the kitties so much!

Sparkle said...

It sounds like not only are you stressed out, some of the kitties are too! You can only do what you can do, so take it easy on yourself!

I will stop by on the 11th. My human has been 39 a couple of times already, but then she decided to be a different age instead. She's creative like that.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Tell your mommie not to worry. We all understand that sometimes the moms are too busy, too tired, or too many other things to keep up with the blog. You can complain to me anytime you want to. I have big shoulders.
Yes, Hugo is over at the KatNip Lounge and having a blast. I have been teleporting over there and also over to Mango, my 230lb doggie friend. You see Mango need my protection. See my last photo on today's, Monday, post. There are many things you don't know about me and I hope you will still be my Sweet Barney when you see this photo. Remember that no furries will be hurt. Also thinking that is a good idea to donate my winnings. Fill me in on who, I am not sure where to do this???
Love and headbutts!!

Huffle Mawson said...

I'll be sure to visit on the 11th! Sorry your work is so crap at the moment.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

We soooooo understand!

Seriously, woo need to make sure woo keep the stinkygoodnessgreenpapers flowing AND then worry about 'us'

We saw Milo shared his prize - that was pawesome!

We'll be sure to khome by fur YOUR Gotcha Day ;-)


caspersmom said...

It's to bad they won't let you got online on your break at work. At least you could one or two comments done. Mom was 39 quite a long time ago, but she said it wasn't all that bad. In fact she had a harder time turning 30 than 40. Go figure. Hope you have a great day when you birthday comes up.


Au and Target said...

We've had trouble too. It must be a conspiracy!

chezcat1970 said...

Don't stress so much about keeping up--just worry about yourself (and the kitties)because we'll still be here when you get back!

Old Kitty said...

Oh Amy!! Bad bad bad work!!! I do feel for you - I'm so so sorry! I really hope that your work will see sense soon. Staff morale must count for something!! Oh dear!

Nevermind!! It'll make your posts more precious!!! Yay!!!

Hugo is so with the Katnip Lounge gang having a whale of a time!!! So cute!!!

Hugs to Kirzon and Barney!! And beautiful Lola and adorable Gus and Stella and Virgil!! They didn't like ham?!?! That is weird - maybe it's the honey!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Ginger Jasper said...
