Just another manic monday.........

I cannot believe I was actually able to take this picture with my cell phone - not too bad eh?

This is Zoey's new spot to sleep - she has this thing for my neck.
She just crawls right up to one side or the other, starts licking me and then passes out. As she gets into a deep sleep she really stretches out and I in turn end up looking like a poster child for the PRO-FUR industry. It's cute but makes for a tough time when trying to reposition.
On the plus side of things, she does tend to hide my double chin! (BONUS!!!)

She has developed one new habit which I have to say is truly something to behold.
I am outing her here - Zoey is a closet BOOGER LICKER!
Yep - you heard me right....she has an affinity for licking your boogers.
She will crawl right up to your face, start purring and out comes that little tongue.
She really goes to town if you let her - (we ARE trying to discourage her, I promise)

Not sure what that is all about but somehow I am not entirely surprised that we managed to adopt a cat with some behavior problems. It just fits our family perfectly!

Enough about that-

So after re-reading my Show & Tell post I realized just how disjointed and weird it sounded.

I had so many thoughts running through my brain that obviously came
flooding out in a big plethora of Jenn babble and nonsense.
Certainly not my best writing but oh well - you will have that.

The whole tone of that post was to let you all know how much you mean to me.
How much you really seem to understand and accept me.
Good bad or indifferent

It seems that no matter what emotional state I am in -

You all just accept me - just as I am - nothing more, nothing less.
Even at my very worst - you are able to look past all my shit and just love me.

My family and friends, who all know my M.O. still stick around when I know they want to smack me upside the head. I love them for that.
It still amazes me that my bloggy friends, whom I have never met, willingly offer up their support, understanding and love as freely as they do.
It is tough to put into words how grateful I am for that.

But I am grateful - very very grateful and blessed!

I hope that clears that up a bit - At least I feel better now for having clarified.

So in the vain of trying to be in the moment more, I am going back to my daily gratitude list.

Gonna try and have a theme - to make it more interesting:

walking barefoot on new spring grass
having Zoey laying across my neck purring away
Polar pop
waking up Sunday mornings and being a goofball in bed with hubby
bloggy friends whose blogs are as messed up as mine

YAY for a real live fur collar! I love the picture of her on your side bar. She has such pretty eyes! You've been a huge supporter of mine and there is NO way I could never be the same for you! You're an amazing gal!

You & your hubby are adorable. So is Ms. Zoey!

I totally understand where you're coming from. It's amazing that you can have all those feelings at the same time.

In a short time, you have been an incredible source of support. I think that's just the nature of bloggy friendships - we support each other without judgement. Ans as much as they love us: our real life friends don't often understand where we're coming from.

Once again, I agree with Beautiful Mess. You are amazing & and I thank God for blessing me with our bloggy friendship. :)
