It's the second anniversary of Claudia and Jinksy coming to live with us! *^^* This
is the post I made the next morning, which is the first time I mentioned them at all in an unlocked post*. And this
is the post I made a couple days later when we'd named them and had uploaded a few decent photos.
Even after living without cats for so many years and missing having them for all that time, I still can't quite believe how
much better life is with them here. Our amazing, sweet little beasties. *^^*
ETA: I just made a Throwback Thursday post
using the photos linked from the second post above (other than the one of me and baby!Claudia
hanging out on the futon, because I don't feel like having a photo of myself on Tumblr. ^^;).
*The whole process of finding out Siberians even existed
, doing research to see if we believed it was worth taking a chance on them not setting off scruloose
's allergies, looking into breeders and then choosing 7 Cedars, and then making the commitment and arranging to get them here from Colorado was all rather involved, so I kept it all under lock. I was so scared it wouldn't work out, and poor scruloose
was scared of committing to trying it and then having it not work--he had no clue that he'd love the kittens so much, as opposed to getting them to make me happy and liking them fine himself, but he knew it'd devastate me if we got cats and couldn't keep them.
Other stuff...well, I was about to post that I'd remembered Kas has an Amazon Prime account and that we were working out whether he should be the one to order A Red-Rose Chain
(copies for himself, me, and wildpear
) to get it here ASAP, but by the time I typed up the chunk about the kitties, he'd already placed an order for me--like, a separate order for just my copy so that it can be delivered straight here. Because Kas is awesome. *^^* (I suspect he'll do the same for wildpear
's copy as soon as she confirms that she needs one.)
arrived safely this afternoon. ^_^ By 10:30 PM I was the only person awake, since Ginny (who's here tonight too) and seangaffney
are both morning people, and while scruloose
is naturally a night owl like me and not going to work tomorrow, he still has to get up at a reasonable hour to go for his tattoo appointment.
And I picked up my new glasses (both clear pairs; the sunglasses will be another week or so), so I'm wearing the simpler pair to start adjusting ASAP. Not that either pair is really dramatic, but the other one is a bit more so than this one. *g* (No photos right now. Not that saying so means there will
be pics, just that there aren't any at the moment.)
Mentioning pictures, non-existent or not, reminds me that I'm at the point of needing a haircut or trim, but since wildpear
just found out that our mutual stylist is opening her own salon sometime in the next few weeks (!!!), I'm gonna hold off and go get it done there once her doors are open. She's wonderful, and I really hope this works out well for her. ^_^
