OH I've been dealing with allergies and how to NOT sneeze, not blow and not wheeze because of this here critter.. her name is least that is what the Vet report said when she got (fixed) this past summer.
This is my sister's cat, I am temporarily staying with her for awhile.
I always thought the name was spelled MiMi. No matter the spelling she comes when called.

 I found out that some of the newer medicines and pills on the market are NOT for me.
So I am back to taking the old fashion Benedryl only in liquid form so I can manage thedosage. Having asthma all my life, I pretty much stay away from what things I am allergic to and trigger attacks. Right now I don't have that luxury, so I am dealing with new territory here. Some days are pretty good and others I am pretty fuzzy. Sis Carole is right though, when taking a close up picture of a cat or dog it is a very tricky thing..(eyes-wise) especially if you don't have the fancy lenses etc. They have no idea what is going on except.."LET'S PLAY!"
This cat is about a year old so it is still in the exploring stage and loves to run through the house and search out things. She will be a very good watchful kitty for those critters that might find themselves in her path. I have been, and always will be a DOG person. It's just me..the way I am, so dealing with MEME has been a real challenge.
I am taking it one day at a time and working around it. Who knows, maybe I will get used to her..or... maybe not.. We will see...
Until later..hope this finds you all staying well and warm this winter season.

I will be taking a break from blogging, as I am feeling somewhat under the weather and will be back soon. Until then.., stay warm and  take care of yourselves. Blessings to you all.

There are a lot of changes going on right now, both for me and for the blogs and at Facebook. Some I would rather do without since change is not my favorite thing.
Starting a new year I decided I was done trying to manuever the blog theme and jump in with everyone else on some custom backgrounds. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. So I changed and I like it so far. Blogger is so much easier than Wordpress to change. I think those in power should really think about making things better for us bloggers.. since it seems that a whole of people have jumped over to Facebook and maybe the art of blogging is dwindling now. Facebook has new changes too, some like it a lot, others not so much. I managed to re arrange things on my page to suit me. I still have a long way to go to be at ease with it though. I  remember awhile back when Windows Live Spaces thought it was nice to keep constantly upgrading and changing things and that led to  their total disruption. People can only take so much and then they are DONE.

Other changes are that I am on the move again soon. I mentioned before that I had moved farther north in Michigan looking for work.  Applying everywhere I could and waiting. Looking and asking and searching. Hours and hours and days and days and nothing so far. How could this be? How can it be? I really have no answers. It's exhausting and very frustrating. So... now I am going back south again. Yes, packing up again, only this time taking very little, donating and getting rid of as much as I can.
It's a roller coaster that is for sure. I will be leaving the north soon and headed to the unknown again. I will miss this place and these wonderful times and views but have them close at hand to look at and remember.

 If posts here become very scarce you will know I am busy trying to get things settled and move on. The library will once again be my connection to the outside world. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have that wonderful place to help me get by. Support your public and district libraries if you can, they really are important.
2012 just has to be just has to be.
