Day 148 – May 6, 2011

This morning, I was craving Mexican pastries so MF & I made a trip down to the Mexican bakery.

*drool*

At lunch time, I went to meet up with my friend SK at the House of Blues.

Houston HoB

SK was in town for the day. Since I had a late breakfast (mmmm pastries), we just went to Starbucks to get some drinks. After chatting for a drink, we went to run a couple of errands — he needed to go make a deposit and pay his cell phone bill.

Shortly after I got home, I saw this..

Turns out it wasn't the kitty love we thought it was... it was more motherly LOL

Poor little Tomasa.. there was no milk that was going to come out of that nipple!! I laughed and laughed and laughed and eventually she stopped.

The kitties were just hanging out looking sad... as though they knew what was going on

I felt so bad separating them but I was under strict orders not to bring home the tiny little kitty 😦

In the afternoon, it was time to drive back to Austin! I put the cats in their carriers, loaded the cats, and finally loaded the kitties. It wasn’t too bad of a drive.. except Eddie wasn’t very still for a lot of the drive.

Such a curious little one!

The drive was pretty uneventful otherwise.. and after 22.5 days of being away from Austin, I was home πŸ˜€

Day 147 – May 5th, 2011

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!

This morning didn’t start off very well.. first, I woke up after having had bad dreams… and as I talked to you, Dusty fell off the windowsill and scratched me on the way down.

Owwwwie - it looks worse than it was

In the aftenoon, AF, A and the baby came by after A got picked up from school. H is in the orchestra and they’re playing downtown. So we headed downtown. It was exciting to watch them.. and it also made me miss being in a large band… I loved playing in front of others as part of the band in High School.. did I ever tell you I was in band? lol

The Advanced {String} Orchestra

Proud mama and crazy cousin πŸ˜‰

Las 3 bellas

It was a fun evening πŸ™‚

Day 146 – May 4th, 2011

Happy Star Wars day — May the fourth be with you!!

MF made breakfast again yay and we went out for a late lunch after we picked up H from school.. street tacos and we shared a hamburger!

Ever since last night, it had seemed like Eddie and Tomasa were upset with each other; I hadn’t seen them together at all!! But late this morning, I finally saw them together again and Eddie was grooming her {it sure does look like they’re kissing!!}

Cuties!

This afternoon, there were no excuses and I went to Zumba with her. On our way out, we noticed the Siamese’s kittens outside.

This was Eddie & Siamese in April last year

Chillin' outside.. 5 out of 6

Oh there's the 6th!

They’re so cute!

Zumba wasn’t bad.. after that, we went to look for a book at Target then Walmart and went to Taco Cabana since we were starving at this point… we also had a margarita while we were there πŸ˜€

After surfing for a bit, I decided to call it a day!

Day 145 – May 3rd, 2011

This morning, I woke up and got to work straight away. I had a few more things to do before my 1:1. At 11am, I called my boss and went over things I needed to work on for our group’s website. After that, MF and I met up with her friend for lunch.

I had the fried mojarra.. can't remember the name in English

After lunch, I went back MF’s to work some more.. in the meantime, I noticed Dusty got more comfortable at MF’s house

On top of the fridge!!

Eddie also had to climb up stuff

This evening, I watched TV while Mireya went to Zumba. Nothing much else went on…

Day 144 – May 2nd, 2011

Ah.. Monday. The only thing that made starting a Monday good {aside from chatting with you of course} was that MF made breakfast smoothies and toasted some waffles. AF was coming by after dropping A off at school. For some reason, I was surprised to see her with the baby… sometimes I forget she’s got a baby lol.. I tried working butΒ had a hard time concentrating. I didn’t end up doing a whole lot of work during the day.

I got to see the little kitties in action πŸ˜€

Hugs

Eddie grooms Tomasa a lot… then he hugs her.. it’s really cute πŸ˜€

In the afternoon, I finally got my groove and started working. I stayed working while MF went to Zumba. I worked way into the wee hours.. I wanted to get some things done before my 1:1 tomorrow… Off to bed!

Day 143 – May 1st, 2011

This morning, I got to sleep in a little bit… the cats aren’t waking me up to pet them.. but I did wake up surrounded by cats.. Dusty, Eddie, and Tomasa (the girl kitty). We all got ready to go to your brother’s. We stopped by Best Buy to get your brother a gift card.. then we were on the road!

While we were at your brother’s, we got to see your two babies… they’re both doing okay πŸ™‚ On the way back, your mom called and I had to give her the bad news that I wasn’t going to visit her then {we were an hour away from her place plus I had left my GPS and my iPhone charger at MF’s place} so I made plans to visit her next weekend.

Driving back to Houston

Once we got back, we hung out for a bit.. and we decided we needed some more corn!! So we went back for more

Prepared corn and the frozen mango treat we also had last night

MF & I were debating whether it was the cheese or the pepper that made it taste different. Maybe it was both. I can’t believe the weekend’s over 😦

Day 142 – April 30, 2011

The alarm went off at 4:30 am. and I had to get up and shower… however, the water boiler is broken and won’t be fixed until later today.. so I went to boil some water. I got to the airport and the lady who checked me in [I can’t check myself in while traveling with Dusty] didn’t even weigh my bags!! I am thinking it’s because I’ve paid to travel with a pet and for a secondΒ bag [Air Canada doesn’t charge you for the first bag]. However, she said that my flight wasn’t until 8:40, not at 7:40 like I originally thought. An extra hour to spare at the airport..yay! I then realized I had left the Nintendo 3DS on the kitchen counter. D’OH!!!

As I was already awake and hungry, I went to Tim Hortons to get some food.

I gotta get rid of all of this Canadian change!!

Luckily, I had enough change so I didn’t have to use my debit card to pay for my egg sandwich with ham {it was a lot like an Egg McMuffin} combo with a tea. I sat down and ate… man the line grew way long while I was sitting there. After breakfast, I picked up a couple of magazines and a bottle of water, then went to the gate. The flight was on time and I slept for more than half of it.

Once we got to Houston, Dusty and I waited for our ride.

He was actually people watching and not hiding!!

After arriving at MF’s house, AF + kids arrived. We ordered pizza for lunch, and A played Just Dance 2 while AF & I chatted and looked at the magazines. We mostly just hung out that night… we did go to Fiesta to get some junk food at a stand… the diablito snow cones, corn in a cup, chips with salsa, and this frozen mango treat.

Oof.. so full but it was soooo good πŸ˜€
