Is anyone else really glad that 2010 is almost over? I mean, good riddance.
For those of you who stayed up late Christmas night worrying because you didn't get me a birthday present for the 26th, I had a very good day. Jesse did an EXCELLENT job for my birthday, surprising me with a booze cruise!
Well, a brunch cruise, but whatever. We went up to the wheel room and Jesse announced it was my birthday so el capitan let me steer the boat for a while. We had a really great time, and I highly recommend the Portland Spirit cruises. It's something I've wanted to do for a while (hence Jesse saying "See? I listen!") and it was a great way to see a side of the city you don't normally see.
So, to wrap up this year, even though a lot of you have been reading my blog for a year and are like, "why is she repeating everything she's already said?" Calm down, and enjoy some highlights.
We bought the car Hank.
In February I welcomed the newest member to my family, my very own Nana! Which by the by, having a nana is awesome. I see why my niece and nephews like it so much.
We got infested with slugs. And then... we got infested with slugs. And dudes, it happened more than I mentioned on the blog, because the novelty of taking pictures of slugs in your bathroom wears off fast.
In July we went to San Diego Comic Con. Which I wrote about in three parts for some reason, I think because I didn't have anything else to talk about. Part One and Part Two and Part Three.
Then, in August, I killed Hank.
And then, two days later, we found out Jesse's beloved kitty Suki had diabetes. And so we put her down and bought a new car the same day, which, in hindsight, don't buy a car when you're in mourning, okay? I mean, ours turned out okay in the end, but your judgment is skewed. Lessons from Aunt Katie. Poop accidents.
In November the only post I did was about my wisdom teeth extraction in high school, which everyone had a good time telling me about THEIR wisdom teeth extractions in the comments and in emails. And the only reason I allowed you to post your stories in the comments was because I wasn't there in real life to interrupt you in the middle of your story and say, "That's nothing!"
Then in November we found out Jesse has type 2 diabetes, which I haven't really told you about because have I mentioned I've been busy? I also had a scare with Cinnamon, thinking perhaps he ... hey, I realized I never made the morbid joke that diabetes runs in the family because Suki got it. Well, there it is. Anyway, 15 1/2 year old Cinnamon is still alive and kicking for now (he was diagnosed with kidney disease the same time Suki got diabetes). And if you're wondering, we went from cheap cat food to prescription cat food at TWENTY EIGHT DOLLARS A BAG, but it actually has helped his blood work a ton, so...there it is. In case you guys are considering getting quote unquote better food for your animal, I recommend trying it.
There was also a lot of begging for more followers this year, copious amounts of cat pictures, and various knitting projects. Let's take a look!
So, my new blog friends, here's to a non-sucky 2011! And thanks for humoring me on this blog. It's nice to know that some people out there in the blogosphere find me worth giving attention to. Well, sometimes. Some people don't like cats, which is crazy.
