Excuse the absence

Wow. It's been over a month since my last entry. Where does time go? One can only guess when you're a busy mama to a 4.5 month old. You know, life. Life gets in the way sometimes.

So please excuse the absence. We've been a little preoccupied lately. We lost a dear family member last night & we're taking some time to unwind from the stress of the last couple of weeks. I know a cat is just a cat to some people, but she was more than just that to us.

She was my sweet, 15-year old Tiggy who'd been with me long before the husband or bambino came along. She was a great kitty, but we know we made the best decision for her yesterday. She'd been really sick the last couple of weeks, and was unable to eat. And now she's in kitty heaven probably having the time of her life. Especially if there is a can of tuna and some catnip involved.'s never easy losing a pet.

But let's end things on a high note, shall we? Because a post just isn't a post unless I include a gratuitous pic of the wee's miss sassy pants in all of her 4 month glory, hand on hip, just check her out! She's sassy folks! And serious. Real serious. Like, this girl has some poker face.

I miss blogging like I used to (which isn't saying much since I'm not sure how good at it I was pre-baby). Honestly, I do. I have no idea who's still keeping up with me. But people are, and for that I thank you. At some point I'll post again about house projects. I mean, spring will be here soon enough & we all know that means...the start of the spray painting season! Well, at least for us northerners. Bring on the warm weather!


  1. Oh, so sorry about your kitty xoxo

  2. Hi there. I came across your blog on Pinterest and was reading some of your great before & after postings when I realized that you were from Buffalo. I am as well....we are living in the city in a home built in 1927. Just wanted to say a quick hello...your blog is terrific!
