Puss In Boots from Shrek 2

This weekend my boyfriend decided to go to Dunkin Donuts for an early Saturday morning treat before dawn. Only 50 yards away from home in a residential area, a neighborhood cat ran out in front of him.
(Now let me explain, we have 3 cats, one that looks just like Puss In Boots from Shrek--same big pupils and all--his name is Boots. His brother Calvin, the Good One. His mom surprised him with them a few years ago after he split up with his ex-girlfriend. He's a manly man... and didn't admit when we first started dating that he had them. Then when I moved in with my little girl, Sage, the one who is always into everything, we became a crazy cat family... but we love them all and couldn't imagine life without them now.)
Needless to say, his first reaction was to swerve. And that he did... side swiping a parked car and head on into a tree. He is ok... except whiplash and being devastated. Luckily he was only going about 15 mph because it was right in front of a speed bump which may have made the swerve a little worse. However, we are still waiting to see if his car is going to be 'totaled'.

For this reason, my 'travel' has consisted of chauffeuring him to work and home. We are lucky it is on the way to my job, but he gets out an hour later than me, so I've been blogging later, and doing my best to keep up with everyone, even though completely fried, and no amount is caffeine is keeping me alert, with it, or motivated.

I always try to keep things bright and cheery here. Just wanted to apologize and explain the slight lack of umph and no mental vacation this week--even though it's probably exactly what I need. So until next week...
I'll be Driving Miss Daisy. ; )

You know, I started my blog to have a happy place to go to as I have been inundated with grief the last few months and few years for that matter - losing my 2 best friends to cancer and my dad to a I try to keep it light too...but never apologize for talking about real life things that are happening....we all go thru it and understand...Sending you love and hugs...XXOO
