    Hello Everyone!! I have disappeared for the last couple of weeks. A lot has happened. I was laid off from my job, with no notice what-so-ever because there was not enough work to keep me busy. I sure hope I am able to find a new job soon. I am a paralegal so hopefully I will have a good shot at finding something soon.

    My kitty who was having problems with a bladder stone went in for a check up last week and x-rays. The x-ray showed that the stone was not getting any smaller. I decided the best way to go was to have it surgically removed. In the long run it will be cheaper, and it will make her better faster. She has the surgery yesterday. Everything went wonderful!! The vet said she couldn't be doing any better!! YAY!!! I called this morning and I get to bring her home today. She is doing perfect! YAY!!!

    Anyhow, I have been busy job searching, and visiting doctors and filling prescriptions before my insurance ran out. I have also been sewing!! This is the bright side of being laid off!! I sewed two really cute tote bags. I will post some pictures later. It has also been really nice in Seattle this past two weeks, so I have been spending a lot of time outdoors and down at the beach. So far being laid off feels more like vacation, but it's only been two weeks so I haven't had time to get bored yet!

    I hope that you are all doing well, and am excited to get caught up with all the posts I have missed!!

    I'm glad kitty is doing much better. While I am a dog person, I hate to see any animal suffer. And of course, we're all glad you're back with us, too!
