If you know me at all, you know there are a few things I CANNOT handle in life. The one I'm speaking of today is cats! I'm sorry if you are a fan, but I am DEFINATLY not- one reason is for the past 3 1/2 years the nieghborhood cats have used my front yard, side yard, 2 spots near my front door, my 2 garden boxes, the back yard, gravel in the front yard and gravel in the back yard TO POOP EVERYWHERE!!!!!! They are terrible! And I am beyond angry & frustrated!!!! They have ruined my garden and/or parts of it almost every year and it makes me SO sad. Their poop is endless & everywhere and it smells terrible and there is nothing worse than your kids stepping in cat poop while playing in the back yard! I don't have animals for a reason, yet I have scooped up, raked up, dug up & cleaned up more cat poop than I wish to comment on. Seriously, I'm getting an ulser over it! I am not a swearer. Honestly, I don't even think bad words in my head, but when I see fresh cat poop or have to deal with mounds of frozen poop- I want to scream bad words for the entire neighborhood to hear- so you know it's bad. With the slightly warmer weather lately, I have almost vomited every time I walked up to the front door because of the smell! Finally this morning I couldn't take it anymore, so at 7:45 AM, in my super hot red Bingo sweater and hotpink PJ bottoms, I went out and raked up a garbage bag full of dirt & poop. I think God will forgive me for thinking up 100 ways to kill the cats, don't you???
I didn't stop there, so I raked up another 4 bags of leaves too. Yes, I am the crazy neighborhood lady doing yard work at 8:00 in the morning!

There are a few places in the house that the kids fight over. They are:
The computer chair.
The bath tub.
The stool closet to the fridge.
...and the kitchen heater vent!
I swear I get at least 100 Marilyn Monroe flashbacks when the kids are standing there with their nightgowns flaring out and the hot air underneath them. Here's Grace in her favorite spot! ( I think if she actually wore winter jammies and not sleeveless silky ones, she would be fine, but that girl likes the least amount of clothes possible! )
