Dear Diary Thursday...

My whole day was made yesterday by two events. The first was when my Mom called to tell me that she had seen the kittens out walking around by the green house. Yep, KITTENS! I thought we had lost one but they are both there and with their Momma! YAY!!! Now if I could just get my hands on the little buggers!

The second event was having a wonderful lunch with my old boss and good friend. It was nice seeing her face to face, which I haven't had an opportunity since I moved away from P5 and on to Wells. We took many times during the week but it was nice to have contact. I think the thing that I love the most about her is that she is always trying to stay extremely positive and upbeat....and since I moved from P5 and away from so much negativity, I enjoy being that way also. Don't get me wrong, I have my days when absolutely nothing is going to be put into a positive spin, but they are very few and far between. And this is a lady who has more on her plate than anyone should but STILL is a bundle of positive energy....and I LOVE IT! She is one of the many people that I miss seeing on a daily basis. However, I am now in a productive environment where most people are very upbeat. And the few that are not, I try to keep my distance from them. It was even fun to let her know that one of my new friends is in the Bishopric....she laughed since I have always said that she has to stay in good Church standings since that will be the only way I will ever get into the Private Club Heaven is with her leaving my name at the door. All she could say while shaking her head is "See Lorene....we are all around you! You can't escape us! Somebody is trying to say something to you!"....which gave us a good laugh.

Dear Diary Wednesday...

With the change in the weather, I have been sleeping HARD. Last night, Dylan curled up with me when I went to bed so that he could catch a couple of winks before work, and honestly, I don't remember anything from the time my head hit the pillow until my Body Alarm went off at 3:30 this was WONDERFUL! I know I am going to have to struggle with my body changing from Summer to Autumn, and one of the struggles is it's desire to sleep more and more....but I am just going to take advantage of it for now.

The Mom and kittens that were under my parent's shed are only one kitten with the Mom. I am going to do what I can to get them to become friendly, as they are extremely feral right now. If I can gain their trust, then I am going to see what I can do about getting them into an adoption program. I know it is going to be a real struggle, and time is really not on my side right now, but I am going to do what I can. I really want to get my hands on them because with the upcoming holiday (HALLOWEEN) they are both black and well, we know bad things happen to black cats around that time. The sooner I can domesticate them, the better.

Dylan and I have not made any concrete plans for the weekend yet, but are tossing around a few idea. We are gong to spend Friday getting our grocery shopping done and out of the way...oh, and he is taking me to dinner. Saturday will be one of the following: 1) renting movies and hanging out in our jammies, 2) going to see a movie, 3) going to the Farmer's Market and spending time out just window shopping, or 4) maybe going to Park City. So many options and each one sounds divine in it's own way. All I know is that right now, it is making me anxious for the weekend!
