This is where I go out on a limb and ponder a while.

Day Eleven: MY Family

I have already written about being thankful for my husband and my children.  But today I'm thinking about MY side of the family.  You know how when you're married there is your side of the family and his side of the family.  I'm talking about my parents, my brothers, my cousins, etc.  I have to say thank you God for the family into which He placed me.  They are the reason I am the person I am today, the good and the bad ;)  I do believe that  babies are all born with a personality type, but the people we grow up with do have a pretty strong influence on how we deal with people and situations.  And I am so thankful for my loving family!

Brrr!  It's 28 degrees outside here this morning and I'm watching Matt Lauer on a sandy beach in Barbados, enjoying a drink called 'Monkey in a Tree'.  What a life, huh?

Update on the stray cat:  We tried letting him outside and he was absolutely terrified!  Poor, thing, I think he must have been a house cat before he ended up homeless.  He wants to stay in the garage, but that won't fly, because every time we open the door to the house, he shoots inside.  As I've mentioned before, we already have one cat in the house, and probably shouldn't, since my husband is allergic to cats.  So last night we moved his food and water dish, bed and litterbox to the shop.  We took him out there and stayed with him to see how he would react and he was one happy cat!  He loves it out there - lots of shelves and equipment to climb on and an attic, which of course, translates to kitty heaven.  We could hear him purring as he jumped from perch to perch.  I could even hear him purring from the attic!  He refuses to come out of the shop now, although he is happy to have visitors.  So, until I find him a forever home, hubby has a shop cat to keep him company :)
