The Little Things Can Make a Difference

In the past few weeks we've made a few small changes that have some big impacts.

For one we're getting a new little kitty named Poly (short for Roly-Poly). Another farm cat rescue case, she's had her first vet visit, gotten her first shots, been declawed, and is currently at my parents house getting used to living inside. She goes back to the vet in October for her first rabies shot and some other boosters.

Freyja is unimpressed by this change as yet and prefers watching the kitten from a distance and hissing to making friends, but we figure that will take time. That's one of the reasons we finally purchased the cat tree that we've been talking about getting for quite some time now for Freyja. She loves it and spent the first two days after it arrived and I set it up sleeping in the top little cup bed/ cat nest. We're hoping that it will give her a place to be up above the kitten watching when we finally bring Poly home to our house.

Another major purchase, a new bedroom set for G and I before the arrival of Baby Z. This is another purchase that we have been talking about for a while and decided that the combination of pregnancy and Labor Day sales made it time to act. Our previous bedroom set is being spilt between our guest room and what will be the nursery. The dressers will become Baby Z's storage and changing table. The bed and night stand are now available for guests when they come to visit Baby Z come March or before.

And finally, a little trip to DC with G for my birthday. First, it gives us time to bug bomb our house to try to eliminate the spiders that are insisting we share the space. Freyja and I are both hoping it works as I'm tired of seeing/smushing them and Freyja is tired of skin sores from getting bitten by the nasty ones. She's staying with my folks while we're in DC this week, which gives the added bonus of her and Poly having some get to know each other time. The trip also gives me some nice time to read and relax while G's working his tail off. But hey, we get to see each other in the evenings this week and plans are in the works for a birthday dinner out. So good times.

And there you have it folks, the little things that have made a big difference in rearranging our house, our schedule, and our finances the past few weeks.

Just a quirky story for those who can appreciate how small the world really is.

Virginia Earthquake August 23, 2011

I'm very thankful to hear from most of my Virginia/DC friends that they are all ok after the 5.9 earthquake centered at Mineral, VA.

Greg along with the federal government and most everyone else in DC evacuated their buildings and headed home early for the day while buildings in the District are inspected for any structural damage that the quake may have caused.

Some of the sad news from the quake includes this story from the Washington Post, Stones Fall Off Washington National Cathedral.

Best of luck to all of you cleaning up.

UPDATE: More sad news from DC: Washington Monument Closed Indefinitely Due to Crack Near Top of Monument

Baby Registries

For those who have been asking, Greg and I have setup the following two registries:

Babies R' Us: Registry #47308165. Please be sure to attach any gift to our registry as we receive extra points toward future purchases based on registry purchases.

Buy Buy Baby: Registry #12423586. Buy Buy Baby is the baby version of Bed, Bath and Beyond, so the registry and some items are available at Bed, Bath and Beyond locations.

Both registries are available online at their respective websites and can be looked up using our names (We've actually found last name is all that is needed usually). We'd also appreciate gift cards to either of the above as well as Walmart, Giant Eagle (our grocery store), or various restaurants if you're looking for something different.

So for those asking for the information, there you go. And for those not...no obligation we're not trying to beg.

Sure, I'm a little late posting; however, it was so good and the leftovers for the week make it even better.
