Home from our cruise to Mexico

I've just come home from a very much needed vacation to Mexico on a cruise. I decided to post these irresistibly cute pictures of the Schmeldings. The first one is Skinny. Next is Stubby. The last one is Bookie. Hopefully you can see why they cause the Momma cat to be homesick while on vacation. I couldn't wait to get home, even though we had the time of our lives.

Here are the boys snuggling on the couch. The next pic was taken by the daddy cat without my knowing. This is the normal sleeping arrangement both on the couch and in bed. Except in bed Stubby shnoggles next to big d. We have very little room to actually get comfortable, but we wouldn't have it any other way. We love our little family.

This is me on the back of the ship on the way to Cozumel. We had an incredible time. We went with 180 people from my mardi gras society. I'm beat, not to mention hungover. Have a good week!

In Sickness and in Health

I have recently acquired a nasty cold and respiratory infection. It started Sat morning with a sore throat and has progressed and worsened. It was to the point that I had to call in sick to work yesterday. In 5 yrs at my current job, I have called in no more than 3 or 4 times. I had the feverish chills and nasty old man cough. My schmeldings reminded me of why we keep them and take good care of them. They snuggled up with me all day in bed. Sometimes they worked in shifts. The boys always made sure that one if not both were taking good care of the momma cat. The only kitten that did not participate was Stubby, the old gal. I couldn't help but worry if they could possibly catch a human virus. I know that most likely they can't but, one can't help but wonder. I was very thankful to have my own version of pet therapy curled up right next to me in my bed yesterday. It really does make a difference. They love us humans both in sickness and in health, and especially when they are really hungry! I did make it to work today. Hopefully getting back to normal will help me feel better before my cruise next Thursday! I noticed last night Big Daddy started feeling yucky. Normally only one of us get sick at a time! Our 2nd anniversary will be Tuesday, so maybe we will be back to normal by then.
