"I like chocolate. There is no bad here"

Three days. I've passed the hump. Yay for me. I'm very impressed with myself. I'm also very impressed with the growth of our sprouts. Did I mention we're growing a farms worth of veggies in our kitchen? It's very exciting. It would be more exciting if there weren't still snow covering the stumps that are in the field that will be the garden but what can you do? Clearly we have a lot of work to do to further our gardening endeavors. We're growing lots of exciting things, soon we'll have fresh herbs and later we'll have fresh veggies and potatoes and also cat nip. I can't wait for summer, I really can't. Gardening is going to be good for me on so many levels, wonderful exercise and all that fresh food to eat. I'm growing tons of tomatoes to can so I can win my suzy homemaker award and prepare for the apocalypse at the same time.

It's a good thing we're growing all that cat nip because the warm weather is bringing the chairman a bath. It's not so much that she stinks, she's just musty. I don't understand it, I hardly ever keep her in a drawer. And also she bathes often of the tongue variety and there's no reason for her to be so dirty. My new friend at work has a Maine Coon too and hers gets a bath once a month. I think the Chairman would tunnel through a wall if she had a bath every month. Or kill us in our sleep. Hard call. Anyway, my cat stinks and she needs a washing and I'm worried about it. I know she could take me, she's buff and has a furry will of iron. If the blog goes cold it's because the fur overlord has taken me down, wish me luck.

I have many friends who have cats but no babies, and whenever I say X about the baby - they say "my cat does the same thing!"

heh. Little dude doesn't like baths either, I think he would prefer that we forego them entirely.

ps - the photo of him in his awesome outfit has gotten a very enthusiastic reaction. You must have a good eye to find something like that at Gymboree, because I went and couldn't find anything even remotely like it.

(but there were lots of firetrucks and dogs, yes)

Finding that was like winning the lottery, it was the only one and I had to get it, had to. It was a very good shopping day!

You are very brave to bathe your cat, I always found that waiting until he was exhausted from chasing his toys around helped make the experience a lot less dangerous for me.

My dogs on the other hand, LOVE bath time, I simply say "bath time" and they are in the tub waiting for me.

I wouldn't attempt it if it wasn't necessary. We'll definitely be trimming of the claws first!
