Alil Filtering

Well, We made it back. In one piece. It was quite a trip. I tried to come up with stories that I could share that people would actually believe, because my husbands family is nothing but interesting.

We opened ch.ris.tmas presents and everyone enjoyed that. I believe everyone was very happy with what they received. We all sat around and talked for a while, until was opened. Then we lost the boys. (i should clarify that my husband is the oldest of 8 ranging in age from 29-3 in a house with 11 animals (4 yippy dogs and 7 cats) and not the most healthy,ideal circumstances/environment) So lets just say it is the opposite environment that I am familiar with w/o going into too much judgemental-ness/history.

The best story I think that I could get away with posting is:
They are now onto c.ats. (n.ew way to ge.t r.ic.h q.uick.) And the cats are beautiful but have s.e.x everywhere. On tables, chairs, patio ....ETC and the 3 yr old says 'they are making babies'................. I can't tell you how much I find that very um, what's the word....inappropriate.

Ok i have to stop before I get all caught up and start off key.

Here is a pic of the cats though, they are pretty:

I had to stay home today. I dunno if it was the detox from all the animals and chaos or what but I got a migraine that was I had to keep a cold washcloth in it for about 12 hours and finally got some relief. does nothing for me and it did nothing for this awful headache. I hope that one never comes back.

Hope your headache goes away soon sweetie! Guitar hero is two nephews love it! Glad you had a good weekend til the migraine....sometimes I wonder if it's the crazy weather. Up here in Michigan we had a foot of snow 5 days ago and today it got up to 65 degrees with thunderstorms...go figure!

Hope your head ache is better. Man. I'd be really upset with them for breeding more cats...there are so many that are being euthanized unnecessarily. :( Anyways, I hope you enjoyed it as much as you could. And that your migraine is gone soon, or already gone. ((hugs))

Hopefully that awful mess of headache is long gone! It sounds like you had a nice, yet interesting time with the in laws. :)

Glad to hear that other than the headache and the droves of cats, things are continuing to go so well!

Wow sounds like you had quite thee event. Kitty porn aside you survived the trip. Will you allow your miracle baby to be in their home?

Lara said...

Sounds like you had a good time!! Oh and I just wanted to comment on your post that you talked about your fears. I think its perfectly normal to feel scared, especially when you see your friend a few weeks ahead of you having trouble. Try to remember that everyone's different and just because it happened to her doesn't mean it will happen to you! I'm here if you need to talk via email (or phone for that matter!). Also, its your SHOULD be posting about your fears. Don't worry about those of us going through infertility reading your blog, if anything we will UNDERSTAND more than the average joe!

OH.HOW.FUNNY. don't they know, as my parents would tell them, that beanie babies are the way to get rich quick. as if. seriously, that is funny. and the cats having sexy time on the furniture. no wonder you got a migraine. see, you should have invited me. we could have laughed all weekend and then no migraine. i am better than tyelenol.
glad you made it. hope your migraine goes away asap.

I still don't understand why you couldn't capture any kitty p.orn for us! ;-)

I'm glad your headache has subsided!!

seussgirl said...

Oh, migraines stink! Especially when Tylenol does NOTHING! Do you get them often?
May they stay far, far away from you for the rest of your pregnancy!

I do think it is somewhat inappropriate for small children to know what is happening in the world of "kitty Porn" but what else are you going to tell them? Kids have a way of asking questions in such a way that lying to them only comes back to bite you in the butt. Glad you had a nice time.

This post made me bust out laughing at work!! I just picture these cats running rampant doing “the deed” everywhere. Doesn’t that make for a “messy” house? Ewwwww! Yes, I do think it is inappropriate. Glad you head is feeling better! As always thanks for the comments on my blog, you are the best!!

JJ said...

Marcy "meg" said...

Yuck on the headache... I know those stink.

Glad you are back!

Meghan said...

Breeding cats? Who would pay money for a cat? There are hundreds at all the shelters

Anyway, glad you're back! Hope the headache goes away soon

oh my.

I know my family is crazy and all, but we made our babymaking cats go outside (usually)! As a teen, I did have a horrific experience when a cat left, um, "evidence" of babymaking on my homework. I was so mortified I just told the teacher I didn't do it. It was one of the many moments when I planned to leave home ASAP.

I like my one cat. She makes enough mess and trouble...why turn the house into a zoo?

SNORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I totally understand. You and I need to write a book and at least make some money off of these crazy people.

I hope your head feels better, I swear my IL's were the cause of my elephants!
