I am completely and utterly exhausted! With all we have to do to prepare for the move (and the landlord jut stopped by and added more to our list, ughh!), and my nature to worry about everything, I haven't been able to sleep. I need a good 8 hours a night to fully function the next day, so needless to say things just are not getting done around here. All of my desires to sew are thrown out the window right now because I can't seem to get it together enough to concentrate on simple patterns. At least I am getting knitting done, right? I always have to look for the silver lining.
Kevin leaves today for house hunting in Oregon. Please wish him luck, I think we are really going to need it. If anything he is going to find us a place to rent so we have a home of some kind when we move there.
Ok, now that I got that off my chest... I have to share something that is bringing the biggest smile to my face and erasing my worries while cuddling with me at night (yes, my sweet girls are, too!)
Some of you got the chance to know my first baby Beaker (aka. Bhakti Boos) who spent her whole 20 years with me. She had the funniest and strangest personality but I loved her dearly. She passed away in January 2008
A few months before she passed away.
Although we already have 2 sweet kitties, I missed seeing my orange friend around the house. I know it's silly because it's only the color of the fur but there is something incredibly comforting to me about orange and white tabbies. We just found out that female orange and white tabbies are pretty rare, only about 20% of the tabby population. That would explain why I hardly ever saw other kitties that looked like her, but then I walked in to a surprise from Kevin last week...
Isn't she a sweetie?! I couldn't be happier. She looks so much like my first kitty that we knew whatever we named her we would always think of Beaker/Bhakti. It only made sense to us to 'carry on the name'. Instead of naming her Beaker, though, we went with Beaker's nickname of Bhakti, which means devotion in Sanskrit. I have to add that she seems to have a bit of the same personality of my first kitty, too. I have already been slapped across the face for no reason by her!
Yes, it will be a bit more of a headache moving cross country with 3 cats, 2 dogs and our girls but that little bit of a headache is nothing compared to the happiness she is bringing us! Thank you to my wonderful husband and welcome to the family Bhakti!!
