Weekly Wrap-Up

Happy Friday, y’all! I hope you’ve all had a good week. We’ve had another one that just seemed to zip by. I can’t believe it’s Friday already. I also can’t believe we’ve almost made it through another school year.

And, don’t even get me started on the fact that Josh will be a senior next school year. {sigh}

The highlight of the week was this:

Yes, we thought we needed another creature in the house. Well, to be fair, two of us did not think we needed another creature in the house. The boys thought we were just fine, thankyouverymuch.

But the girls are suckers for a pretty face and Megan has been wanting her own cat – or dog. Whatever she could talk us into.

Jake, our outside dog that died last summer, was the dog she claimed for her own. Jack, our younger orange tabby was her cat…until we got Belle. Jack wasn’t impressed and he’s taken up with the neighbors down the street. Now, he only comes to visit and is pretty grouchy when he does.

So, we got Megan an as-yet-unnamed snuggle buddy. She is such an affectionate cat. We got her Tuesday afternoon, so far she’s doing pretty good with the dogs and other cats. There’s been a little hissing and growling on both sides, but they’ve also all slept in one another’s presence, so I think we’re off to a good start.

And, as long as there are treats involved for everyone, they can peacefully exist in close proximity.

We are open to name suggestions, but I think we’ve rejected about 1,000 of them. Megan likes Echo, so that may be what we wind up with. I’m leaning toward Sassy, even though I was originally in favor of Oreo or Domino.

For your reference, we currently have the three dogs: Penny, Peanut, and Belle. We also have five cats: Gus, Lily, Luna, Chloe, and Jack (except he really doesn’t live here anymore). She’s a female cat.

I had a fabulous Mother’s Day. We went to lunch with some friends after church. Then, we came home and everyone except Brian took a nap. We were all exhausted and everyone slept great because the house was so quiet.

Brian grilled some steaks for dinner then we all went to see Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. It was the perfect, relaxing day spent with my favorite people. Then, I had breakfast with my mom and sister on Wednesday as our belated Mother’s Day brunch.

Yep, that’s pretty much it for the highlights. It’s my kind of week when there’s not much to recap on Friday. Have a great weekend, y’all!

  1. She’s so pretty! I’m not good at coming up with names. Our kids named all of our cats, which is why they’re all named after either Supernatural or Harry Potter characters. How about Hermione, lol?

  2. That’s a lot of critters! We have two dogs, a cat, and a rabbit ourselves and I know we would have more if we lived in the country still. Sounds like a fabulous week!
