Well, I lived through today. Kept it kind of quiet, but boy do I hurt. Still have a slight headache from conking it on the floor during the judo class yesterday, and my neck and shoulders hurt from trying to keep my head from hitting the floor any more.... I will get the hang of this though. Since people are going to be throwing me around a lot more in the future, I have to!
Ta-dah! My husband put in about 16 hours of work, and this is what he came up with:
It's a lot more intricate that it looks. If you could open the top sections, you'd find lots of escape pods, Darth Vader's giant egg-thing that he sits in, and people. As I said - about 16 hours of work went into this!
New fur babies!!!! Thanks to my cousin, I have inherited two lovely young ladies, aged about 6 months. She had five cats, two of which she could take to her new house; one of which seems to have found a new home for herself, but the last two, who are sisters, had nowhere to go. Her husband was going to be moving into an apartment and didn't want to pay the $500 pet fee to bring them. So I took them.
The blond with her eyes shut is Tottie, which seems to be morphing into Toddy. Misha is the dark calico. Both of them are very playful, love my curtains (Toddy's already pulled one set down), and hang out under Z-boy's bed when things get a little overwhelming. I slept on the couch last night to cat-referee. Yoda sat up on the back of the couch all night and hissed whenever one of the little girls came in. Then he stopped hissing and just watched them with big eyes. French is a hissing fool. His face seems to swell up to twice its size when he does that, which is rather comical. I imagine this will go the same way as other cat family blendings we've done... lots of hissing, arched backs and growls for three days, then affectionate playing and cleaning.
