LOL, for years I’ve been telling the wife that someday when I retire, I’m going to move up into the mountains and become a mountain man and she always says “yeah right”. Now she’s agreeing with me.

Hubby and I live 3 hours away from my son and his family. Since my granddaughter was born in May they won't come to visit because dil is slightly allergic to cats, and truly doesn't like them. On top of all that she doesn't like my lack of cleaning skills. The good part of all that is WE go to visit them. They also have a small place so no room for us to stay over so our visits last about 3-4 hours. Enough time to give lots of love to my grandbaby, and spend time with their parents, then we pick our selves up and leave.

Having my step daughter in Ecuador this holiday season has cut down on worrying about visiting her house.

This is one if the reasons I don't like the holidays much. Luckily we don't really have many people over for the holidays , just my parents today. Though I did trip over the filling cabinet my parents got us as a gift which sent the cats into hiding for a half hour-my bad though lol. Next year my family wants to do Xmas at our house because the sister who usually has it is 2 hours away and it's a pain. The issue is there are 4 hyper kids in the family... Two of which are terrified of dogs and we have a High energy large breed dog. The two seen her as a little puppy and they jumped on my moms counter and screamed bloody murder until I left. :s they want us to lock her in our spare bedroom for 5 hours. I'll obviously have to take her potty but the two kids will scream if they see her. The other two kids are fine and they all love cats... Though the two the have cats chase theirs me my sister is constantly yelling at them for it. I think I'm going to stop with Xmas all together. It's not fair that I have to lock my dog away all night because two of the kids are scared. My sister never exposed them to animals and told them big dogs attack. Sigh. Glad the holidays are over.

It’s funny because before the family Christmas get-together, I was out in the neighborhood trying to get people to come in and see the trains. Every time I saw someone walking a small child or pushing them in a stroller I was out inviting them in. Some of them were a little leery of me so I had to send my wife out to convince them that it was Ok and to come on in. LOL


The difference was that it was usually only for a short time and then they were gone.

I am very lucky in my new house.....I have a big bedroom with an ensuite, which is where the litter trays are. I can put the cats in there and open the French doors to the verandah, but leave the screen doors shut, so that they are away from the party but can still watch birds and interact through the screen doors as much as they want.

There is a guest bathroom and Loo....yay!

I shut my kitten in her safe room with all her necessities during two such occasions. My three year old cousin still wanted to see her though. He loves kittens and lost his kitten to some fluke heart failure earlier this year. "Where is your little kitty?" He kept asking me. So we went in to see Luna on the condition that he be gentle. He was.... At first. Then he leaves the room and comes back revving his toy chainsaw. Poor Luna jumped out of my hands and hid under the bed.

Anyone see the correlation here?
