Just a quickie

And nope, not that kind of quickie.  I can only wish for that kind.

This is the kind of quickie to say I haven't gone and abandoned the blog again.  I've just been busy writing up a lot of reviews when I have the time.  And since I'm still internetless at home the only time I have to do it is at work - and I'm also expected to - work - at work.

But the reclaiming the house is going great guns.  I have finished the living room in which the biggest job was going through the book shelves and keeping some and purging others.  My book shelves look GREAT!  And if I can figure out how to do it, I shall take some pictures and post them.  I also realized that I can take pictures of the kitties now that the background won't be a non-hoarders nightmare.

Speaking of kitties, the more adventurous of the two - the one I fondly call Munch when he's being good and 'You Pain in the Ass' - with love in my voice of course when he's being not so good, has discovered a new game.  He loves playing fetch with puff balls. 

He can play for hours and by the time I'm ready to call it quits I've gone from calling him Munch to "You Pain in the Ass" - with love in my voice of course.  I throw it, he runs after it and brings it back to me, I throw it, he brings it back to me - well you get the picture.

Well today when we were playing with the puff ball, he changed to game from fetch the puff ball to catch the puff ball and let me tell you he was catching and batting and jumping hella high to get it.  Think dogs and frizzbies.  It was ever so fun and I laughed and laughed and laughed and didn't call him "You Pain in the Ass" - with love in my voice of course.


But I digress.  Almost 2 years ago now I bought a new laptop and told myself when I got it home, I'd open it as a reward when I had the kitchen, bathroom and living room up to snuff and I'm happy, happy, happy to be able to say that next time Alexis comes I will finally be opening The Box!

And that is a short update - now to get back to work type stuff.

'til later

Go, Munch!!!

And keep going, Kristie! (picture pompoms and athletic cheering here--I would actually do it, but I may hurt myself)

Yay for reviewing too! Are you posting them all too TGTBTU? or will we see a few here too?

Rewards are good - and yippee for a "new" laptop! Now we just need to get you back on the Internet at home :)

I finally treated myself to a tablet - which I've been dithering about for at least 2 years. Amazon had a one-day only deal going on and I took it as divine providence and a reward for surviving work right now - which has been nutty. Now I just need to get back into a reading groove because SOMEONE is nagging me to read a certain book before we see each other again in July....

AL: Yep, I'm posting them at TGTBTU, then at GoodReads, then here. Here I'm WAY behind - but then I haven't been back blogging that long.

And I wanted to show Alexis Munch's new trick yesterday, but do you think he would do it? Of course not - he just kind of watched us as we both tried to get him to 'catch the puff ball'.

Wendy: Alas, we opened the laptop yesterday and it was a total bust. I can't remember my password to get onto the internet and that's going to be a whole lot'o'work trying to get that figured out. And I couldn't get Microsoft Office to open for some reason - probably 'cause it's been almost 2 years since I even opened the box. So now I'm going to have to take it back to Best Buy to get it running - at least Office. And how do I explain why it took me 2 years to open it. I think I'll either go with I was in prison for 2 years or I was taken by aliens and they just brought me back home.
I could embellish it with something interesting like "and now I'm pregnant with a space alien's baby. The would be ever so less embarrassing than the truth.

And you go your good self with a tablet. I don't know what I'd do without mine. And who would have the nerve to nag you???????
And I bet whoever it is that's doing the nagging just finished reading the book that person is nagging you about and fell in love all over again with it.
