he's so adorable,but right now i'm stressed! we're doing everything by the book, but tonight aria ran out of her room and came face to face with cache and it was not good. so needless to say she threw a hissy fit and has been cranky all night. we really think this is a good thing, so hopefully arie will calm down and figure that out too. soon.
for those of you who don't know already (probably most of you) today josh and i adopted a new kitten! his name is cache, he's orange and white and 3 1/2 months old. i'll be (taking) posting photos soon!
we've been thinking about getting a second cat pretty much since we got arie, but since josh's family decided to get a second one (this week) it really spurred us into action.
arie is doing ok. we really want her to like cache so they can be a playmates (and keep each other company) so we're taking things pretty slow. they're in seperate rooms and although arie has hissed a couple times, she mostly seems interested and not threatened.
so now that we have a new kitty addition i have decided a few things:
1- mom/dad/sister-in-law- no more kitties for you! we are done, therefor i believe you must be done as well :)
2- grandma and mike- you must come visit soon because i know you would not want to miss meeting our new addition!
3- josh and i are awesome at adopting! and while we are done with kitties, i think that we should consider adopting other things in the (distant) future...
more updates to come. for now i'm going to sleep (in the living room) which cache.
one of my favorite bands just released a new album this week (which my hubby bought for me) and guess who is on it?
my little baby sisser, joy! she plays cello and she's playing on seawolf's new album. check them out! they've got a great sound and joy adds to it a lot (in my unbiased opinion)
she is beautiful and talented and you should also check out her regular band (who are also amazing) midwest dilemma although unsigned they are a huge local hit! and i think it's only a matter of time. as someone before me said, this girl IS her namesake.
i had a great weekend! i didn't get to hang out with my parents much, but i spent a lot of quality time with my sister and sarah (the special music guest and a friend from high school). we laughed a lot and told stories about poking eyes and grinding teeth and funny crying stories (pretty much completely from me) it was a good time. anyway, on to the photos!
my mom and i outside of an adorable local shop (i want to live inside it)
one of the best parts of the weekend: i got my violin back! ahhh, it was so nice to play again.
joye and i also played a wedding too. we're practicing outside:
the one family photo we managed to get. everyone just happened to be together so i ran over and we struck a pose. good thing all our eyes were open because we only had time to get one:
my mom. she's cute:
banana phone.... doot do da do doot do (sarah and joye)
i can't wait for the holidays! i love being together with friends and family. i miss you all!!
i'm going out of town tonight to help my mom with a women's retreat and play a wedding gig with my sister. i'm excited to see them and get a break from work! i'm leaving in about 15 minutes (josh has to make sure he fixed his bike correctly first) but i'll be back in a couple days with stories (maybe) and photos (for sure!)
i found an arts program that wants to hire me as a violin teacher! yay! the only (really big) problem is that they won't have a room for me to actually teach in for a few months. which really sucks. i'm very actively trying to find another job so i can quit target, but for now i'm kinda stuck there.
