Farewell Fred

We lost our cat, Fred, to a blood clot quite suddenly yesterday.  It is hard not to “see” Fred everywhere you look.  Those of us who have pets know how dear they become to us.  Each has their own quirks and personality.  One of the things Fred loved to do was hunt for socks (and if he couldn’t find them, he was quite happy discovering washcloths, underwear, t-shirts and occasionally a craft item (bag of deocorative rocks, bag of feathers)) all from the basement.   At night, you would hear his meowing noise as he brought his latest treasure up the stairs.  Some mornings, we would walk into the kitchen to find a trail of items across the floor.  Below is a photo of Fred with one of Ali’s socks.  Because I happened to be in the bedroom awake watching TV, Fred was bringing the treasure all the down the hallway to me.

Have you had a pet who had a special “act”.  I would love to hear about it.

Rest in Peace, Fred!

I’m THAT person!

I was taking daughter to school this morning when I noticed a car come up on me quickly.  It passed me, and that’s when I realized I was tooling along at 30 MPH in a 45 MPH zone.  Forget that it is dark outside, there are only a few cars on the road and there is nothing wrong with my van.  I am THAT person who infuriates me.  The one who goes too slow.  The one who should keep her car in the garage if she can’t drive. The one who is called an idiot driver by someone like my husband.  I’ll try to be more aware of my “slow” speed in the mornings and try not to be the driver I can’t stand.

Have you ever found yourself to be THAT person?

To Make Up or Not to Make Up

I was watching The Real Housewives of the OC last night when one of the gals mentioned that in the OC, you don’t even go out for coffee in sweats and no make up.  It got me to thinking how real housewives elsewhere feel. 

As for me, I used to think I couldn’t go anywhere without makeup on.  I dressed for comfort, not for fashion.  I tried to look nice, but I don’t think I was obsessive about it.  Then I had kids and a bout with cancer and I learned how to be very comfortable in my skin.  I don’t want to look like a slob, but I am who I am.  Most of the time, I have too many other things I want to do than spend extra time trying to impress people.  My friends are my friends and my family is my family and they like/love me for me.

On the other hand, I would like to once in awhile have something special to really dress up for and be glamorous.  That’s the girly girl bling-lover in me. 

What about you?  Do you have to look perfect before stepping out the door?
