Ok, Ok.. I promised a post in March and I blew it... I've worked at it now- on and off again through April and it still ain't ready. It's up to 4 pages and I'm only 2/3 of the way there.
So i figured I'd post an apology on the delay and explain what's kept me away from this site for too long.
Without getting into too much detail, it's been a bumpy ride since June 2012. I've had 3 hospitalizations and 3 months of physical therapy. I've changed jobs at work- busy with some exciting project management work on a HUGE clinical systems project. I've had one of my medical devices upgraded (I won't say what medical device because that will spoil the story in the blog...:) )
My oldest Cat- Ellie... died in August 2012 which was tough loss for me since I had her for 15 years. She was a great cat & mentored Arista very well.
I then adopted Kiki from the same shelter that I got Arista from.
Kiki was about 4 months old when I got her and had lived in a semi-feral environment. She was terrorfied of people and me. It took her about a month to get used to me but she eventually came out of her shell to be in my lap as she is in the above picture.
Her and Arista had a rough start but they are now best buddies- always playing, chasing & romping around at odd hours of the night. This also entails running at top speed up and down the stairs.
Kiki is quite vocal & has a habit of waking me up once or twice a night just to tell me that she's happy and that she love me- purring loudly and flexing her paws (with claws) against my cheek).
So all things considered- things are going well. Spring is in full swing & yes, I will get this next blog entry finished dang it! It's about a huge turning point for me & my recovery in the summer of 1988.
