Weekend update

Well the weekend isn't over yet but today is going to be almost over before I even get started. I have the evening watch so I'll get home about 0800 or a little after and will nap since I only napped for about 3 hours before heading to work at about 2300 on Saturday.

All in all it has been a productive weekend. I had to go into the base Saturday morning to pick up one of my kids from restriction. Hes glad to be off restriction and I will be glad to have him back in the shop.

After that I went back and rolled keith out of bed and convinced him to go to breakfast. We ate at a place called "The Country Waffle" it was yummy. Then we headed to the hardware store to get some plastic and then out to my apartment to continue the chore of packing everything up. I am a bit frustrated having to pack up all my crafts and fabrics and having to put them in storage but Keith has promised me that it will only be for a little while. I'm sure that everyone can agree that putting your fabric in boxes where you can't see it makes it hard to look at it and then be creative and use it.

So we packed up alot of my pattern books, fabric and other crafts. Put the sewing machines and some other various things in the truck and still had room. After a few minutes and some discussion we decided to just take the meows up to Keiths.

I'm not sure if I mentioned it before but my apartment isn't comfortable or safe anymore and adding my medical things in to it and long hours at work it just made sense to move into town. After several months of discussion and some changes in situations we (Keith, George and I) decided that it just made sense to move in with each other. He actually lives in a 4 bedroom house in Lemoore with George who recently seperated from his wife. We have all talked about things and they are ok with the meows and everything. No more having to ask Keith to drive 30 miles to feed them while I have to make the trip to San Diego for the doctors and they will get attention while I am at work because the boys are home when I'm not. The boys are awesome.. most nights they have dinner ready before I get home so we eat and then I head to bed, George took my car and put tires on it a few days ago because he didn't want me to drive down to san diego on the tires that I had.

So the meows moved to a new home (again). They really like it already.. Lilly is all over the place making friends with everyone.. Louise has climbed all over Georges room and explored everything. Thelma well I don't know what the difference was but at the apartment she was very flighty and would even run away from me. Trying to get her to come out from under the bed while Keith was there was like pulling teeth. With in about 30 minutes she was out checking out the new litter box.. and peeking at Keith from around the corner. Before leaving for watch she climbed on the bed and let him pet her and a while after I was gone he texted and said that she climbed on the bed and curled up on top if him... I don't know about you but that tells me that there was something about the other place that scared her. Keith is excited he seemed so hurt before because she wouldn't come out while he was there.. and now she curls up with him while I'm gone. Its such a relief to know that the girls like them and are ok with the move.

Well I am off to work on my to do list for tomorrow and see what can be worked out to re-organize things so that we can bring the fabric and stuff to the house.

What wonderful news. There's a reason cats are said to have 9 lives - good to know their kitty senses like the new place much better.
