Happy Birthday, Roo Roo!
Not only is it St Patrick's day today, but it's also Roo's 13th birthday! He's the only one of my 7 children whose exact birthday I know. I know his b/c he was born on my living room floor! I can't believe it's been 13 years since he was born. I'm feeling old today! We've been through a lot together, including 2 cross-country moves.
When I was in college, I lived in an apartment complex in California where there were tons of homeless (unspayed and unneutered) cats. After adopting one (Magritte), I decided to take in another: a very sweet manx tuxedo cat I named Sylvester. When I took Sylvester to the vet to be "fixed," I had to rename the cat Sylvia!!! And, she was already pregnant. So, I ended up keeping Sylvia and one of her sons, Roo. My beloved girl, Sylvia, passed away from kidney failure 7 years ago. But, I'm so fortunate to still have her special boy, Roo.

Happy Birthday, Baby Bear!
On Thursday Teddy (a.k.a, Theodore, Teddy Bear, Baby Bear) turned 8 years old! I never thought my asthmatic baby (who has almost died multiple times) would make it to being a "senior"!

I thought I was Oscar!
Thank you to Frosty for pointing me to the Sesame Street Personality Quiz. Oscar the grouch has always been my favorite character. And sometimes (especially during my chronic headaches), I can be grumpy. So, I totally thought the test would tell me that I'm Oscar. But, surprise- it said I'm Bert! I actually can see that in some ways, but the really freaky thing is that it said that one of my passions is bottle caps!!!
You Are Bert

Extremely serious and a little eccentric, people find you lovable - even if you don't love them!

You are usually feeling: Logical - you rarely let your emotions rule you

You are famous for: Being smart, a total neat freak, and maybe just a little evil

How you live your life: With passion, even if your odd passions (like bottle caps and pigeons) are baffling to others
