Sick Trinket Kitty, Gardening, and CLEANING!!

Poor little Trinket Kitty is under the weather. We think she may have a urinary tract infection. She keeps trying to go potty and when she does, it's not much. Yeah, I know, TMI...

So anyway, I took her to the vet's today. I have been putting off going to the Dr. myself because, well, I hate it, and secondly, the cost! But Trinket, on the other hand, went to her Dr.!

I can't believe how much it can cost to have her go to the vet's! It was just over $140!!!

Hopefully, the vet can determine if that is what is going on and she can feel better soon!

Yesterday I gathered the remainder of our green beans and pulled up the plants...readying our little beds for spring planting. I shelled out the older beans...some that the bugs had gotten to very badly...and removed the seeds to dry and plant for next year.
Rebecca is doing a science project for her homeschool science class and she has decided to do a compost. The rest of the bean plants will go in that compost so maybe I will feel that none of the money I spent trying to grow green beans will really have been wasted!

I have begun a monumental task of trying to clear out and clean up our master bedroom. I honestly think that should be a place of "refuge"...not a place of "refuse"...as it seems to be right now! I'm cleaning out one of the closets currently. That is usually our "gift" closet...where we store all our gift wrap, ribbons, boxes AND presents! I have been able to get a fair amount of Christmas shopping done already and I am trying to sort them, put them in plastic grocery bags, and label them for whatever child they should go to. When y0u have eight children and three children-in-laws as well as grandchildren, it takes up some space! I have a few large Rubbermaid storage containers that they are going into and must, out of necessity, be stacked in a corner in our room. At least it's going to be organized which is better than what it has been!

So, off I go, to the "war zone" which is what our bedroom looks like right now! Last night, I had so many things stacked around our room and my husband kept asking me what he could do to help. ( I think he wanted to go to bed...) I kept telling him "Don't touch anything! They're in stacks!! HEY...... YOU'RE TOUCHING SOMETHING!!!!!" So, finally I finished up putting the stacks in the right places and most are in containers. The rest of the mess may go to the Goodwill store!! Oh, goodness....I HOPE I DON'T BUY THEM BACK.....................


  1. Oh my goodness, Beth, I laughed out loud at your last line, "I hope I don't buy them back." You are too funny!

  2. Well...I sort of have a long history of that kind of hting. When I was about 4, my big sister and her friends had a "garage sale" and got some old things from my mother that had originally belonged to my dad. Well, it upset me so I took my few dimes and went down there and BOUGHT THEM BACK!!! Sometimes I just can't control myself....
