donkey donkey

My cat has been meowing so much lately. For a while I was wondering if she had a voice, except for a few meows here and there she was silent. Now she makes so much noise especially when she is gone wacko at night and its strange.

There is this song that Justin Timberlake sings called Sexy Back. Tonight Lia came in after we were done praying and asked Jill if she could bring Eva back into the auditorium. Jill starts going "Were bringing Eva back, yeah" and then she starts singing "dirty girl, dirty diaper smells just like a squirrel". It was kinda funny and I laughed some, and I just love that look people give you when they think you shouldn't know what they are talking about but you do.

My mom got this new cleaner that isn't a powder its like a cream. I really like it because powder cleaners like comet make my nose sting and I start getting a headache, the problem with this new stuff is that apparently one of the ingredients in it I am allergic to or something because every time I use it my hand feel so itchy and I have got these weird rashes popping up on my hands and wrists. I guess I'll have to wear gloves.

I cleaned my room up so nice today and had everything in their places. I even swept the floor and emptied the two overflowing garbage cans and took all the cups out. I put all the dolls away and picked all the Lego out of my pencils, I put all the art paper in a stack and I washed white out of the window. I then a few hours later I come back in my room and its a mess. Annoyed is not the word, neither is frustrated or any other word that describes extreme displeasure. Man, I was so mad, I am seriously going to take all their toys and put them in the cellar and if they get all moldy, oh well.

My favorite books are history books and A Beka's language/reading books for the high school age people and poetry books. There is nothing like reading Homer when you are half asleep, or reading Edgar Allen Poe when you are annoyed at your sisters and its night. Not that I read it out loud of course, Lizzy gets the chills in the day when I read The Raven or The bells.

. . .And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me---filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
"'Tis some stranger entreating entrance at my chamber door---
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door;---
This and nothing more. . .

. . .Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censor
Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.
"Wretch," I cried, "thy God hath lent thee---by these angels he has sent thee
Respite---respite and nepenthe from they memories of Lenore;
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!"
Quoth the Raven "Nevermore." . . .

The poem of The Bell is way to long to repeat a verse here so if you want to read it, go look it up. Edgar uses the word bells at least 61 times in that poem and when I read it, saying "bells, bells, bells, bells, bells" over and over gets tiring.

History is so fascinating, I love reading history. I wanted to read more about Canada so I got out the Canadian history book we have and it is one of the best books I have ever read.

On the 23rd My family is going to the canal in Ottawa. The Tessiers (I hope I spelled that right) and the whoever in the Underwood family are coming plus Chelsea and Sarah if they are allowed. That will be so fun and I am going to bring lots of money for beaver tails.

Sounds like you have a cat in heat. MErroooooowwwwwowowow. Missy is too. Our oldest has to deal with the noise not us. A method to my madness. Mwahahaha
My sister in law told me to "get her spayed. You do NOT need more cats." The animal shelter does not need more cats either is her cry. That was one reason why we adopted from the shelter that time.

Another sister in law has allergies to cleaners. I should ask her what she uses for cleaning and get some tips.

Kevin and Karen have relatives, with 6 of 9 kids, over and skating at the canal this week. I checked the site and don't find help on hockey space. There is a number to call.

I don't know if she is old enough to be in heat, but that could be. There are plenty of cats in this world and its good to fix the cats, but I love kittens so I might not fix Gwandle, at least not for a little while.

Mrs Tessier said something about a rink near their house or something that we could play hockey at.
