Life doesn't......

....get much better in our house....if you're a cat that is! Happy First Birthday babies. Ahem, Saturday is Angela's Birthday. She is aka Auld Hat. I think she is going to be 26. I just absolutely love Angela to pieces.....she is bright, talented, funny and my friend. I am terrible about phoning people. I say I will, I don't. No matter with Angela. When I finally do call she is just happy to hear from me....I can tell by her voice. Happy Birthday my friend. I wish I could spend the day with you and celebrate!







I am sitting on the end of a chair hoping I can read blogs for a while after posting this. Heat has helped a bit. Steve rubs Tiger Balm on my back before we go to bed (good thing we aren't trying to start a family). A nasty test is ordered on Monday at the crack of dawn. If it was just my back I could deal with it....I have had back pain for decades. But my abdomen has something going on too....I'll be glad when I know what's up with all of this. It is NOT fun.

I love your kitties. They remind me of my little Noodles (may she RIP). I'm glad that Steve is taking care of you and your back. Prayers for GOOD answers soon!

Good luck with your tests. I know how frustrating it is to keep taking them.

Rhea said...

Happy birthday to the furry ones!
I hope your tests turn out well,and they are able to offer some relief.

Speck said...

Your kitties look like they are majorly stressed about turning one year old. Catnip all around for the birthday party! Woo Hoo!

Hope you find some comfort for your back and tummy.

madretz said...

Happy birthday to all...meow meow kisses and hugs!
Hope you feel better real soon, I can't deal with back pain, I'm a big wus. So you have my sympathy.

Auld Hat said...

Oh mama, you are so wonderful. And yes (clears throat) I'm turning 26. That bit about turning 36 is obviously a typo on my part. (lah dee dah...)
And I think I know what that tummy feeling is because when my back has been in a solid spasm for more than a week (the worst!) it starts to cramp my ab muscles. The deep down right against your spine ab muscles. Hope that's all it is and hope more than anything that you feel better. Love you (: muah!

Those kitties are lovely, and they certainly lucked into a nice loving home when they came to live with you and Steve. Sorry to hear about the aches and pains, and I'm rooting for good results for you on all the medical tests!

Keeping everything crossed for your pain in the back/gut. (And you know I'm serious when I keep my legs crossed.)

Cazzie!!! said...

Ohh, I love tiger balm, we have it here too, I lvoe the smell and the feeling it releives you some-what of the aches and pains, or perhaps, it takes the edge off the pain. Take it easy ok :)

Lorraine said...

cs said...

Sure hope your doctor can pin this one down and you will be digging out tractors soon again!

Such lovely pooddy-tats. REady to pounce at a moments notice. That look is the best...you can see the ever so slight twitch coming on.

Keep us posted sister.

Chris said...

I just want to sit and snuggle the kitties. They aren't anymore spoiled than our Mico pup who has taken to sleeping with us...eek.

I hope you feel better SOON!

I really hope alls you once again escape the clutches of the pharmaeutical money men....


The last cat reminds me of my lovely Mandy a cat I had aged 9...I bought her home for my mum o mother's day circa 1963 as dad nevr liked cats I figured if I gave it to mum for Mother's day...what could he say? the cat stayed. I loed that cat. She was hit by a car some years later... we named her (my lder sister's influence) after Mandy Rice Davis from the Profumo affair see Pommie politics re 1960s
