Hubby is getting his work schedule changed which is good. He's going to be working a normal 40 hour week instead of the 50+ hours he's been working, and he's going to be getting paid differently which will hopefully equal MORE MONEY. On Tuesdays our work schedules cooincide, and since we work 2 miles apart we've been talking about carpooling on those days. I think it would be fun. He's also getting most Saturdays off soon so we're planning a weekend trip. We're debating on a few places but I think we're settled on going to Williamsburg. I found a really cheap hotel...I'm talking under $30 a night and it's not a crappy hotel either.

For some reason I've had a strong desire to crochet lately. I was at the store and saw some super cute yarn that I had to buy. I made this little cat toy. It's a mouse with a very long tail. The kitties both love it. I hold onto one end of the tail and throw the mouse and then pull it back to me. They love it!
I still have a lot of yarn left, and I have a ton of soda tabs, I'm thinking about making a purse out of them either for myself or to list on Etsy. I'm playing around with some designs for it.

it wasn't quite as bad as the first night, since I think all of us knew more about what to expect. But my goodness that little girl has energy...and she seems to save it all until I'm trying to fall asleep. Luckily for him my husband is a deep sleeper so nothing she did bothered him, even when she was playing with his beard...for some reason she's in love with his chin fuzz. But all night all I would hear was her running around, feel her climbing up on the bed, stick her nose in my eye, and run off. Occasionaly I would hear a low growl from Peanut.
Peanut is doing much better with her. She tolerates being near her and even sniffs her a lot. Kara is enjoying stalking Peanut and pouncing on her tail when she isn't looking. It's very cute. Occasionaly now Peanut will give me a look, as if she's saying "why did you bring this thing here" LOL

It seems like for now Peanut is tolerating Kara. I hope that soon she will become friendly with her. One of the main reasons we wanted a second cat was to keep Peanut company.

She's such a sweet girl. She's a cuddler. Right now my husband is playing the new Ghostbuster's game with her curled up on his chest. Before that she was asleep on me for a while...she must have had an interesting dream because her paws were twitching like she was running, it was so cute.
Unfortunately our introduction of her to Peanut didn't go so smooth. We let Peanut out of the bedroom and the kitten jumped out of her box and headed right for the bedroom with Peanut right behind her and they both dove under the bed with Peanut hissing and growing at her. We got the kitten out of there and closed the door so Peanut stayed in there, then the kitten went around the apartment looking for various hiding spots and not really coming out much. Now she's venturing out and climbed up on the couch and cuddled with us.
Tomorrow I'm home from work because there's an exterminator coming to the apartment (They're doing the whole development, not that we have any pests) so I'll try to give them a little bit of time together and see what happens.
PICTURES OF THE KITTEN COMING SOON!
