No more kitty cats for me



Aak! Cough!  Hack!  I can’t breathe!

I confirmed tonight I have an allergy to cats.

This makes me so sad.

Cats are one of my favourite animals.




We were at a friend’s house today and as the evening progressed I noticed that my eyes were itchy and my throat was “weird”.  And just before we left my chest was starting to get really tight and my throat was itchy.   And now I am home and it really hurts.  I changed my clothes and put them in the washing machine and I have taken an allergy pill… I hope this feeling goes away soon.

Deanna asked me if this means she is destined to be allergic to cats (b/c Wes is allergic and now both my mom and I have developed an allergy to them in our adult years, although we react differently).

here is another company that sells weighted blankets and products

have you heard of these weighted blankets and their benefits?

7.   what do your gifts say?  -

It’s upon us in full force, the biggest buying season of the year. A giant transfer is taking place. The life energy we call money (representing hours of work) or credit (hours of future work) is exchanged for stuff. Lots of stuff—toys, clothes, perfume, electronics, fancy foods, plus those novelty items that no one ever uses. (Okay, I actually wear the silly socks given to me and wear them with glee. I may be the only one.)

We transfer more than time and money. That’s because there’s meaning embedded in our gifts. We have certain intentions as we shop, wrap, anticipate giving, and finally offer the gift. Our efforts try to say something.
