My Cute Jerk

20 Feb

cute jerk

Don’t let the cuteness of the cat fool you, he is actually being a jerk right there. I know it can be hard to believe, someone so cute, and furry, and adorable looking, but lemme tell ya, when he is comfy and wants the chair he will stop at nothing to get what he wants!

He had originally been sleeping on my lap, when he got up for a nibble and a drink that was my chance to get up and make a cup of tea. When I came back to the chair he was laying on it, diagonally, looking comfie and defiant and before I even got within reach of him he was making eye contact and meowing at me.

The battle for the chair had once again started!

Normally once I get close enough I can pick him up he moves, or I pick him up and put him on my lap once I’m seated, either way we both end up in the same position we were in before we got up, me with my legs stretched out and a blanket over them, he laying along the length of my legs slowly cutting off circulation to my feet.

What can I say, it’s our system.

But every now and then he decides he wants the chair. And not just a section of the chair, but the entire thing, or at least half. A 7lb cat thinks he deserves half the chair. Boggles the mind. *rolls eyes*

In the picture above I had already moved him from laying diagonally on the chair to straight, with the intention of picking him up, but the meowing and sad eyes started and I’m a sucker, sigh. So then I started to slide him over to be closer to the arm of the chair. We do, quite frequently, share the chair so we both know we can fit, but not if he is so far over my butt can’t sit down without squishing him. He does not appreciate being squished.

Well! Each time I tried sliding him towards the arm of the chair his back legs stretched out so his back paws were against the arm of the chair and he used his surprisingly strong leg muscles to prevent me from moving him. Seriously, freakishly strong. Or maybe I’m just not willing to push too hard for fear of hurting him, whichever it is, he was not budging. I tried two or three times and nope, no moving him.

Do you see how much space there is between him and the arm of the chair in that picture?!

I ended up sitting down so I was on my side, resting on my hip, with my legs curled up and my shoulder leaning in to the back of the chair, all so he was not moved from the position and spot he wanted.

Don’t get me wrong, I love him, and would do anything for him, but he can occasionally be a bit of a jerk…which actually makes me love him even more lol There’s obviously no hope for me! πŸ˜‰

Another Snow Day!

10 Feb

WooHoo! Another snow day! And in February no less. Yay!

I mean sure, it took way longer to get home from work than normal thanks to people not knowing how to drive in snow, but when the snow is this pretty does that really matter?

Nope. It doesn’t matter one little bit! …might have if I’d had to pee or something when trapped in my suv but I didn’t so all was good lol πŸ˜‰

Hope you’re enjoying your winter weather, whatever that may be!

Retail Therapy

Ah yes, retail therapy, that thing we all hope will help us feel better but actually doesn’t.

Well… at least my feet will look good! πŸ˜›

 

Snow Day

4 Feb

Proof we had a snow day in February. Well, our version of a snow day anyways lol We are a tad spoiled over here weather wise. While the rest of the country freezes and gets buried under inches of snow this is all we got and it was gone by the next day. *shrug* Whatcha gonna do?

Cat Day

24 Jan

Today was my one day off this week and I chose to spend the day being lazy, who says I don’t know how to live my best life? πŸ˜‰

You may be thinking a lazy day meant I slept in but you’d be wrong. πŸ˜› I was actually up early, distressingly early, le sigh, but that’s ok because it meant I had ample time for a nap on the living room chair and there’s just something about a good nap that is so decadent feeling.

Not only did I have a late morning nap but I also dozed off in the afternoon, and almost again in the evening. I forced myself to get up when I started to doze off that last time because I do have to be able to sleep tonight ya know. Today may be lazy but tomorrow is me working both jobs and hopefully squeezing in a workout so ya know, the total opposite of today.

Guess which day I like better! lol

When I was forcing myself to not nap that third time I looked at the cat and realized I was living my cat’s best life. This is basically how he spends his day, minus watching Netflix that is. He naps, gets up to go to the bathroom or get something to eat, then relaxes, then falls in to another napping session, aaaaand repeat.

nap

Pro-Level napping!

So, my lazy day was actually me doing my absolute best imitation of my cat.

Man do I want my cat’s life! lol

The only difference was by the end of the day I did a bit of decluttering in the bathroom and I caught up on some work emails because I won’t have time tomorrow before job number 1 starts. So I guess I didn’t quite have a work free day today, but most of it was free from work and since I spent most of it (or so it seems) in various levels of unconsciousness I really can’t complain.

 

Sick Days

7 Jan

Staring down a serving of NyQuil is like staring down a shot of Tequila. You know it isn’t going to taste great, but it’ll help you attain your immediate goal, and then you’ll pass out.

sick day 2

We are 7 days into 2019, how is your New Year going so far?

Mine was going great until the evening of day 3 when I went from healthy to sick in the span of around 20 minutes. It is amazing how quickly your body can go from healthy to fevered and sick isn’t it? I assume the pesky germs that took me down had been fighting my immune system for a couple days, silently sneaking through my body and killing white blood cells whenever there was an opportunity, and when there was a weak spot in my defences they charged the wall and squashed a whole lot more of those white blood cells, thereby winning the battle against my immune system.

The battle but not the war!

With the aid of vitamins, Airborne (I swear by that stuff), a lot of sleeping, chicken noodle soup, and of course NyQuil, I am on the mend.

However, having four of the seven days of 2019 being sick days means I don’t have a whole lot of interesting things to write about. Le sigh.

I know it is old news by now but my New Years Eve was a lot of fun, I won tickets to a party downtown and it turned out to be pretty good. There was live entertainment, alcohol, a great view of the fireworks, and it was all inside a not overly crowded space so I didn’t even have to freeze my butt off at midnight. I think a good New Years Eve is mostly dependent on who you spend it with, if you’re with someone you want to be with and you have fun with, odds are you’ll have a good time. We could have done pretty much anything and had fun, it was just a happy perk we had such a good spot for the fireworks. πŸ™‚

Then it was a couple days off from work, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and juuust before I was to head back to work I got sick.

So ya see, not much to talk about.

My mom reminded me to make this dish she used to make me when I was a kid and sick. It is warm milk poured over bread that has been cut in to bite size squares and sprinkled with sugar.

sick day 3

It is so simple, and yet so comforting. It however doesn’t photograph all that well lol I pretty much lose my appetite when sick so when she mentioned this dish I thought it would be ok to make, even if it is just carbs and sugar lol As with all dishes that my mom makes, her version is better, but this wasn’t so bad.

I’m hoping it isn’t raining tomorrow so I can go for a bit of a walk, get some fresh air in to these lungs, and get out of this apartment for a bit, I’m soooo bored, and yet, randomly napping throughout the day, so not quite fit for jumping back in to the swing of things just yet. Soon though, and then hopefully I’ll have more interesting things to blog about!

Hope your 2019 is starting off healthier than mine! πŸ˜€
