Packing It In

I'm bummed out that I didn't have the opportunity to come around today and wish each of you a great Christmas/Holiday.  On top of torrential rain and a small earthquake, Chef's kitty sprained her leg and had to go to the vet causing upset upon upset for us.  Thankfully she is okay, but we discovered she is 14 years old instead of 4 like we thought so it was a pretty sobering visit.  She's super small and we found her on the street so assumed she was young.  Sigh.

Anyway, all that being said I'm now more behind on last minute things (argh how is this possible?) and have to get the ol' bag packed so am checking out a bit early.  We take off for Canada on Friday morning and there is limited internet (if any at all), so it may be a week before I'm able to visit you or get a post in (uh, minor withdrawals setting in?).  I do, however, have my trapper hat at the ready and am hoping for some crazy snow pics.  Fingers crossed.  Here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas with your family and friends!!  You guys are the best!

My dear, dear Carrie. Your sweet comment just made my day. I hope that you have the happiest of holidays with your family -- you certainly deserve it. And give those jam-filled cookies another shot, okay? I'm hoping for some happy cookie-related Tweets this weekend about them. Merry Christmas, my dear!

I am glad Kitty is o.k. Here you thought she was a youngin' and she's a granny! Surprise surprise. Reminds me of the time Tim took the rabbit to the vet because he swore she was pregnant... come to find out the rabbit was a boy! Can you say dumba**? hee hee Have a wonderful Christmas and have fun seeing your family, Carrie! Looking forward to the Canada photos. xo

LouBoo said...

Hello there - it seems every thing is happening all at once this week doesn't it? And as for the weather - whilst we didn't get an earthquake we did get alot of snow. Melted now thankfully - but I did think it looked awfully festive! Have a restful time Carrie, Lou xx

Oh wow...that must be an adjustment (kitty's age). Hope she is doing ok. Mine is still stubbornly resisting giving me the sample I need. The saga continues. Ugh.

I'm so sorry about Chef's cat :( August had to make a vet trip yesterday, too. Between him and whatever bug hit me - well its just not the holidays until some madness sets it, right?

I hope you have a safe trip and a great Christmas, Carrie! Hope youre able to find some internet :)

Wow, that's crazy news about your cat -- but she's lucky that you founds her and now she can have a contented and comfortable life (well, the occasional sprain notwithstanding). And have a great trip home and a wonderful Christmas!

A very happy Christmas my darling! I hope Chef's kitty is feeling much better, and I hope you have a safe trip!

Claire Kiefer said...

Merry Christmas Carrie! I hate to admit that I'm just a little amused that y'all thought your cat was 10 years younger than she is! Was there any rhyme or reason to guessing that she was 4? I hope she lives another healthy 6 years!

Dancing Branflake said...

Be safe and have fun! I am totally staying in!
