The Week from H E double hockey sticks!

What a difference a week makes.

When Mommy went to work this Monday, she was pretty sure that the interim software rollout that was supposed to happen in the Middle of November while she was on vacation– did not happen…

and she was right.

The new date is now December 10th.  But this week Mom’s co-worker and the other writer had a family emergency! That meant that Mom worked a LOT of overtime this week and she will be working through this weekend and overtime next week straight through to next weekend.

She has been home LATE everyday this week. And Alex went to Chicago for 2 days. We did NOT get any posts done, and we did not get a chance to visit our furrend’s blog.

Soooooo …  what have Ninja and me been doing?

Some of this…


And some of this!


Now-who WON?

We got a list of those that told us they donated and we checked out the Go Fund Me page  for Marg. 

We put the names of people who told us they did into a hat and…






Purrs Marv & Ninja

  1. Congrats to Spitty!
    I hope by next weekend the rollout is complete and your mum is able to slow down. It’s not a good thing to have to return to after a lovely holiday.

    Hugs, Teddy

  6. We is very excited and thankful! We want to tell your mom to TAKE HER TIME. No hurry! Her main job is taking care of you kids.

    I used to HATE it when things got super crazy at her school and she’d leave me for like 20 hours a day! Okay, I’m lying about that. But sometimes 12 and that was bad enough. I think they should LEAVE and come home to us in a timely manner but they seem to have a “work ethic” or some stupid Human thing. You guys look pretty fierce there.

  7. Congrats to Spitty. Mom wanted to contribute but a friend lost everything (but her life and her dog) in the Camp (Paradise, CA) fire, and she had to help her this time. So many need help. We so wish we could help everybody. Wow, Marv, we sure hope Mom Barb can get work under control so she can enjoy the holidays.

  8. Well, it is the 11th now…hope your Mom will be able to relax a bit more, now. And soon the Christmas vacation times will be upon us, for sure she will be able to give you furry ones all the needed attentions and more to make up for lost time?! We can hope, right? Petcretary on the other hand, has to work on the 25th, cause health care never takes days off…but after that she will have about 8 days to recover, MOL!
