MeeeeOwwww What a week we’ve had. And thru it all, of course we’ve felt very blest. You guessed it, it’s time fur another Blest Sunday. The Mew Year was off to a rocky start here. The wheelchair batteries were dead and mommy had been crawlin’ ‘round fur months. And of course that meant no drivin’ lessons fur the quickly growing Raena. Mommys teeth have gotten worse and are really causin’ her a lot of pain. And her bad falls are gettin’ worse and more frequent. And mommy got a call from the DHS that said she might not qualify fur the program that allows her to hire someone to help ‘round the house and do the things we can’t, all because we haven’t been able to find somepawdy to work. Mommy says that was the purrverbial straw and lost it. Me knows you’re askin’ yourselves how we feel blest amidst all this, so let me tell ya’.
As of late Furiday, we have new batteries in the wheelchair. Yep, the repairman came out to look things over. Mommy insisted he work in the house so she could verify that the batteries were new. That meant he wasn’t purrpared, cuz he only had used batteries in his van. So he had to drive back to the City to get new batteries and come back out. He also discovered that our charger isn’t workin’ purropurrly, so we need a new charger as well. He furgot the charger when he went to pick up the batteries, so they’re s’posed to drop ship one to mommy this week. He also told mommy that it’s ‘bout time fur a new chair. The one we have is 6 years old and showin’ some wear. But fur now, at least mommy’s not crawlin’ ‘round anymore and she can start trainin’ Raena to drive. Me’s gonna have to find some great look out spots so me can watch events unfolding from a safe distance. MOL
Mommy was able to find a dentist that will look at her teeths fur free on Wednesday and give her an estimate of how much it would cost to get rid of her rotten teethes and get dentures. We won’t be able to afford to get the work done, but at least mommy will know the cost. She says sometimes the pain is easier to bear when you know you can’t afford to change it.
And then on Furiday, the DHS nurse is comin’ out to see ifin mommy can still qualify to get a helper. We purray the nurse says she does and that the Mew Year will bring us someone who wants to work so mommy can get that help. We so wish we could do everything mommy needs, but alas, we are only cats with no opposable thumbs. Raena might be able to reach the sink when she stands on her back paws, but she can’t wash the dishes or purrpare our meals. And unless and until we get one of those robot vacuums, there’s no way we can maneuver the carpet monster.
While none of us have any control over mommys’ falls, at least with the wheelchair workin’ again, there’ll be less hours on her big ole clumsy feet. Ya’ know what else? Durin’ the stresses of last week, a lot of you reached out and let mommy and us know you cared ‘bout us and were sendin’ purrs and purrayers. We are so blest to have you all in our lives. And most purrtantly, we have each other to lean on and our belief in God to get us thru it all.
Hopefully things are takin’ a turn fur the better. And we were happy that a lot of you are innerested in the purrgression of mommys’ Raenas’ new AeroGarden. Raena’s keepin’ a close eye on it. And when me says close…she finally managed to get one of the caps off and hide it from mommy. and then she actually pulled one of those pods out. We don’t know how long it was out of the water, or how well it will sprout without it’s cap, but mommy replaced it in it’s slot and we’ll see.
Somepawdy mentioned that their kitty dug up the dirt so they couldn’t grow plants or a garden. So we thought we’d try to ‘splain the Aero Garden a bit better. There’s no dirt to dig. All the plants are grown in water, and there’s a cover across the top that keeps kitty out, as you can see by the above fotos. Unless you have a Raena that is. And then you have to really push those pods into place. Me should note that since replacin’ the pod Raena stole and pushin’ it into place better, she’s been unsuccessful at further attempts to dislodge it. And trust me, she’s tried. MOL We were also asked what pods we were growing. Since we don’t yet have any lettuce seeds/pods, mommy planted the herbs that came with it: dill, parsley, mint, 2 different kinds of basil and cilantro. We’ll keep you updated as things happen. Mommy’s really excited to watch it all and can’t wait till she has salad greens to grow. So fank you again, she really luvs her Christmas purresent.
Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. Our lives are so much better with all of you in it. We are all truly blest. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life. We have a busy week ahead with the doctor Monday, dentist Wednesday and the DHS nurse on Furiday, so we’ll be ‘round to visit when we can. We’re also joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Till the next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!
Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses
