Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

And Jasper makes three!
Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

Another craigslist find...

Finally – I am rid of those ugly nightstands.  Yes, I miss the drawer space – and it’s been a bit of a scramble trying to find a place for pajamas, shirts, socks and underwear, but this little table ($25 on craigslist) is so much cuter.  At least I think so – and Tom remarked (bless their hearts, they picked it up for me) that I have finally gotten rid of the last piece of bedroom furniture from my old house - and my old life.  I hadn’t really thought about it until he mentioned it – I mean, I hated the heavy look of the things and the way the top drawers wouldn’t pull all the way out.  Putting things away in the drawers was a pain in the butt – but he’s right.  All the sad reminders of the home we gave up and the life that I thought was so happy are gone.  I no longer have anything in my new home that I don’t like – or that I didn’t specifically choose.  The living room furniture and my desks were at the office, but I picked them out because I liked them – and I still do.  I’m really the only one that spent any amount of time at the office, so there are only those good memories associated with those things.  And – the ugly nightstands went to a good home.  Jonathan’s mother wants to use them in her living room as a television stand.  He’s picking them up this afternoon.
See – we’re all happy with the way things turned out.
