It's my birthday!

Dear Readers,

I am now 29 years old. It's strange to be so close to thirty. Age really is just a number to me, but I feel like I have been here a long time. I am genuinely happy to wake up every morning, even though I do it alone. My cats don't count, of course.

I've been trying to think of something funny to post. I just haven't felt at my peak of hilarity lately. I feel like I am trapped in a ledger. I'm climbing around and making corrections, but the math isn't right yet. I hope that makes sense. (I don't mean financially. I just mean that sometimes I view life as an equation that I need to balance or solve.)

As you should by now know, I do not make resolutions every year. I have one perpetual resolution that I wake up and make every day. Move forward.

It doesn't mean the same thing every day. It doesn't mean something solid. It just means to push through, find adventure, and embrace the unexpected pleasures of every day. That's it. That is my goal. I am not planning to take over the world or any part of it. I'm just going to keep exploring. I hope you all plan to come along for the ride.

Yours,
Courtney

P.S. LOOK at the cake my boss bought!

Google and I need to have a talk.

I'll admit it. I google myself. It's a good way to find out what people see when they google me and when there are spoof accounts made in my name. I recognize that I am no one, but spammers on Twitter dig me.

I'd really like my first and real blog to come up before http://www.thekindofcatlady.com. I'm a single woman now. I'd rather the men I date not think about this when they see me:


Also, I love this song. Mr. Sandman, this one's for you.

Big Cuddlepile!

Last night my boyfriend decided that he hates Florida and as soon as he can he is leaving. Unfortunately, I am not part of that plan, so we are no longer together. My cats came together and snuggled me to near death. Bella and Quinn put aside their bickering and snuggled me next to each other and Obi climbed onto my calves. She knows I hate that, but it's her favorite spot. Anyway, my cats made things easier last night.

Perspective.

It's funny how quickly things are put into perspective.

This morning, Dr. Quinn got out because my brother left the front door open. I was so upset. Quinn wouldn't come in. He ran from me. I was sad and panicking. When he came back I was so relieved.

This afternoon, mothers and fathers lost their children. Children lost their mothers or fathers. Three men felt the need to attack other people. There is so much pain in the world. I just can't imagine it all.

My friends today put Quinn on their #pawcircle today and prayed that he would come home. He came home and I was relieved. I just can't help but think about those folks who will never make it home.

Cat girlfriend Betrayed!

This is very funny. It's not for children though.
My friend, Will Mize, posted this on his Facebook and I took it from there.
