The Cat's Pajamas

These used to be my pajamas.... but apparently not anymore!

As It Is Written


So here it is. An example of my scrawl that has been gracing medical charts for two decades. Thanks to Mago for putting the bug in my ear to do this. It's been quite interesting seeing people's handwriting. I think it gives you a bit more insight into who they are.... which can be very elusive using the internet!

IF A MAN WANTS YOU


If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.

Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.
Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.

Stop trying to change yourselves for a relationship that's not meant to be.
Slower is better.

Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.

If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve
then heck no, you can't 'be friends.' A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.

Don't settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.

Don't stay because you think 'it will get better'. You'll be mad at yourself
a year later for staying when things are not better.

The only person you can control in a relationship is you.

Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women.
He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant...
Why would he treat you any differently?

Always have your own set of friends separate from his.

Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.
If something bothers you, speak up.

Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within.

Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are...even if he has
more education or in a better job. Do not make him into a quasi-god.
He is a man, nothing more nothing less.

Never let a man define who you are.

Never borrow someone else's man.
Oh Lord!? If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.

A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
All men are NOT dogs.

You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is a two-way street.

You need time to heal between relationships............. there is nothing cute about
baggage... deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.

You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you... a relationship consists
of two WHOLE individuals... look for someone complimentary... not supplementary.

Dating is fun... even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.

Make him miss you sometimes...when a man always know where you are, and you're
always readily available to him - he takes it for granted.

Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.

Share this with other ladies..... You'll make someone SMILE, another
RETHINK her choices, and another woman PREPARE.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate
them, a day to love them and an entire lifetime to forget them.


BY THE WAY, THIS WAS WRITTEN BY A MAN...............

Just to prove...

...that I have *not* fallen off the face of the earth, here are some photos of the girls in my house.

Well, the four legged girls. I am a girl too but I'm not in any of the pictures.

Obviously.

Because I am the one *taking* the pictures....

Okay, I'll shut up now. ;-)


Take note of the missing whiskers. I think Pips has chewed them off Lila's face....



Her favourite perch is on the dog... who doesn't seem to care one iota.




An afternoon siesta. BB, the old man, is off by himself somewhere safe from harassment.




Aren't those lovely markings? As she matures, they become more obvious.




Check out the hair between the pads on her back feet. :-)



Best buds!



Will I have double the hairballs to clean up? They groom themselves *and* each other...



Lila... dead asleep... not dead. ;-)


Short and sweet and all I have time for right now! One day, I will be back to blogging. Perhaps in a few weeks when things settle down... But I *am* alive... really, I am! :-D

Busy, busy, busy....

Swamped.... Run off my feet.... bogged down.... barely coming up for air.... working my fingers to the bone...

Not to worry, everyone! I will be absent for a while... days, perhaps weeks, maybe even a month or two. But in the end, when I get to that light at the end of the tunnel, all will be good and I will be back in full force.

I will try and pop in once in a while for comments to other blogs. I am well. Just really busy. All is good! :-)
