FOTW MAY 2015

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 17 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

My kitty Lily is a snoring cat. She will wake me up snoring sometimes and keep me from falling asleep. She is gorgeous but loud. We are sitting in the living room and my mom says "What is that noise?" I listen and then laugh, that's Lily. She looks at me, "Doing what?" I said snoring. Yep, poor kitty gets no respect. LOL

I'm in the kitchen and mom says "STOP licking that bunny's ear it doesn't need cleaning!" I said "who are you talking to?" She said "I don't know, whichever one of these cats it is that's licking my bunny" OMG I'm cracking up because for some reason that just sounded SO wrong! I look and Sugar, the baby kitty, is sitting in front of the TV licking the inside of a stuffed bunny my mom has sitting out for Easter. I said "well he thought the bunny's ear needed cleaning" she did NOT think it was funny.

Looking through some of my older FB post and I am reminded how far I've come and all I've been through. I shared a photo over a year ago and then again in December. I am not sure where the quote came from, but it is so true:
Don't let your struggle become your identity

Well now that puts a fly in the Metamucil

Each night I have to gather up the kitties and corral them into the bedroom, my mom doesn't like them "out" in the house at night. I swear, sometimes gathering them up is like nailing jell-o to the wall, it just isn't easy! One runs one way, the second another way and the third meow's directions on which way I'm coming so they can run.

I'm typing this up and my mom walks into the living room, "Dawn can you come into the bathroom for a minute?" I said sure after I de-cat myself. I have 2 of the 3 laying on me. She laughs. I go into the bathroom and in the tub is this scary looking bug with about a hundred legs and 4 antenna. I actually have NO idea what this bug is. Which is odd because if it's a critter, I know what it is. Then she squished it before I could get a picture! How rude! LOL

Mother's Day I was playing "bertend" with LMSP, yes it is pretend but she insist on saying bertend. She tells me that she is going to marry her boyfriend and then date, she wants 3 boyfriends and 3 kids...oh dear

I've never been a "sports" person but my honey is a BIG and that is an understatement, BIG HUGE Football FAN, he loves EVERYTHING about football. So I am learning the game, reading the NFL site, blogs, Q&A, stats, scores, player info and I watched/followed the draft on May 1 and 2nd. It was actually fun and exciting. I'm getting into this football thing, I can see come football season I'll be one of "those" women, cooking, buying beer, watching the game, screaming at the TV! My boys will FLIP!
For almost a month now I've been working, I'm driving transport for the county. I transport elderly, mentally and/or physically disabled and I love it. I like to drive, I get to see places around town I've never seen and do a lot of out of town driving, plus I get to help people, which is what I love to do. I have a group of boys (mentally boys but age..well they are 21-62) and they make my day. K and A greet me with a big wave and huge smile everyday and always ask me how my evening was and how my morning has been. They are ultra polite and very helpful with the other passengers. L is the seat belt police, he is 62 and cracks me up. K and D are the two girls, and are both very challenging but I've noticed that if I greet them with a smile and tell them how nice they look they are very complacent. 

I became a beach body coach and am drinking my shakeology everyday, it keeps me going. I also joined the gym AND bought my first pair of shorts in over 15 years. I even wore them to the beach. ALL of these steps are moving me forward and are BIG steps in overcoming my body image issues.

  2. Your job sounds just perfect for you.
    I'm still laughing at the "licking the bunny's ear" comment.
    And I'm glad you didn't get a picture of that bug, I don't think I want to see it.

    1. I was sooooo outside of my comfort zone but soon forgot all about it and we had a great time! I do love my job but some days it is so physically demanding, hence the gym need.

  8. Your cat and mine should get together and have a "snore-off". Sometimes he's worse than my husband!

    So... you are joining the ranks of sports widows. And a Raiders one at that. You and I are going to get along just fine. ;)
