Facebook Rocks My World

It’s t-minus 4 hours and counting until our first foster care meeting.  Interestingly, Bob seems to be as excited as I am about this. I hope it ends up being something we can do and something we are accepted into.

Today when I was using the public restroom at my workplace I was sitting there and all of a sudden I heard a lot of grunting.  It seems someone was having issues with expelling their waste.  There was so much noise coming from that stall, I ended up finishing as fast as I could myself and got out of there.  I don’t need to hear that…especially if it’s someone I know!

I’ve been having really random things happening to me on Facebook recently.  First, I found one of the three girls I nannied for in 1990 and sent her a friend request.  Not only did she accept and begin messaging me, her 2 sisters did too!  As we caught up with each other I became so proud of the young women these girls became.  It hardly seems possible that it’s been 18 years since I was last with them.  They are all moms themselves now.

Second, one of my old friends from my hometown messaged me asking if my husband was related to a couple her parents used to know.  She was very specific in detailing this couple but before she even finished her message I knew that the couple she referred to was related to Bob.  They were his father and step-mother!  Small world, huh?  I messaged her back and had to tell her that Bob’s dad died a year ago at Christmas.  Still…you never know who knows who you know, you know?

We might have to find a new home for one of our cats.  The first cat we got as a couple and have had the longest has been peeing in places NOT approved or set up for cat urine containment.  I have cleaned the places with Anti-icky-poo and make sure all 4 litter boxes are clean every day.  I’m not sure what more we can do.  If she keeps it up, she will have to go and that will break my heart.  She is our feistiest, smartest, and bravest cat.

Cats don't usually have accidents for no reason. Have you taken her to the vet to see if she has a UTI? Have there been any changes in the household lately (besides the obvious fire issue)?

With mine it is usually when we change something like right now he's had a couple of accidents because he is pissed that our basement is flooded and so his stuff is upstairs.

The vet can usually perscribe something for this. Sometimes this sudden onset can be caused by sometype of infection.
