Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It looks like spring is finally gaining a grip here in central Indy and it's going to be another beautiful day here in central Indy. My day is going to be spent babysitting for a little while longer and then I have to do some more cleaning. I also need to go watch a Christmas video or two to get the image of snakes and spiders crawling all over my apartment out of my head now. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Our Merlin is a jet black kitty, he has never been bad luck to us, he was found on the side of a road as a kitten, and we adopted him after his first home wasn't able to keep him and their other cat together. He wasn't supposed to have a long life, he has a half a tongue and the vet said he wouldn't be able to eat properly. He is 14 years old, at his highest his weight was 15 lbs. I think he taught himself to eat just fine.

Spiders are the one thing that can make me squeal like a little girl. I don't know why; I've never been bitten or traumatized by a spider.

Ok. Enough true confessions for today.

It's all part of the experience.

That must have been tough to deal with, good thing for fake trees. I love my artificial trees.

When we use to get real trees we always got a Blue Spruce, those needles were sharp. We just loved the way they looked and smelled

Ahhh, that is creepy. Maybe we don't want to get a real tree this year.

Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I have to leave work early today to go to Jacob's track meet. Nancy has to stay home to take Elizabeth to dance class. I hate when we all go separate ways, but that's life with active kids, I guess.

I spent the afternoon yesterday on the phone with state DOT board members, trying to convince them to put a traffic light in Bellville. We have two caution lights at the highway intersections, but there are wrecks all the time, and speeders. I was surprised at how accommodating the DOT board members were, and I even got an email this morning from a state senator about it.

Flexin' my political muscles!!

I hope y'all have a great day!

She believes the snake was in the bag of potpourri and is now on the loose in her house!
Okay, these stories are making my skin crawl.
