2. Apparently people love keeping it real posts so here ya go. My house is a complete disaster. The christmas decorations came down last weekend and the tree got put in the bag, but the bag is still in the middle of our small living room. The tubs holding all of the Christmas stuff are sitting at the top of the stairs waiting to go up in the attic. There are dishes piled in the sink. The litter box needs to be cleaned. The sheets on the bed are dirty and the extra bedroom really looks like a tornado came through with laundry. It's bad. Yet, I sit here and write about it and do nothing about it. Maybe I'll tackle it this weekend.... maybe.
3. My credit card will definitely need to be put on a spending hiatus after yesterday. We've been thinking about doing a cruise with our friends in September and we found a good deal that had to be booked by last night so we bit the bullet and booked it. I am so excited but really don't want to wait until September! We're headed to the Bahamas, Grand Turk, San Juan and St. Thomas!
4. My husband requested a "Dreams Burger" for his 30th birthday. Yes, a hamburger. From Dreams. In Mexico... He has been talking about the Dreams burger ever since we got home from our wedding over a year ago. So, what a husband wants for his birthday, he gets. We're going back to Dreams in April! Yes, we booked that trip on Wednesday. Another reason my credit card needs a hold on it until the end of the year! haha. But I will say the United airlines CC is the best idea we've ever had and have gotten to fly to Napa, Vegas and now Cancun for FREE!!! Anyway, I can't wait to go back to our "Mexican Home!"
5. John and I were talking about retiring the day for some reason and how we wanted to travel all the time and I said, "but what about the kitties?" He said, "I hate to break it to you, but they won't be around when it comes time to retire." It BROKE MY HEART. I starting crying. Thinking about losing another animal makes me SO sad. I can't imagine my life without my cats. Ever since Cotton left us, I feel like I've got a really special bond with my 2 girls and thinking about them not being with us just kills me. I know this is morbid to think about perfectly healthy cats dying, but when he said that it just made it real that animals don't live forever. Even perfectly healthy ones. My cotton was sick so I guess that made it easier for me to accept even though it was SO SO hard to deal with. I know, you can say it. I'm a crazy cat lady.
