I'm sorry about your bad dream, those really stink. Sweet dreams to you tonight.
I thought of you Wednesday when I bought a really cool knitting book. The author recommends Knitting in Plain English. Anyway, It's called Stitch 'n' Bitch and it has a bunch of cute patterns for purses, sweaters (even a small dog sweater), and such.
In other news, my husband happened to be at the house this morning when my next door neighbor stopped by. My neigbor had thrown a bunch of dirt and flowers on my Plymouth (it's a '57 and one of my projects). He then banged on the door and, after my husband answered, the neighbor got right up in his face and told him that he was tired of my cats stomping on his flower bed. He said that he wanted us to get rid of them or he would! He said he had tried to be a good neighbor about it but couldn't take it any longer. My husband told him that we would try to work out a solution but said that we were NOT getting rid of our cats. My husband also pointed out that the people on the other side of him have cats as do both of the neigbors across the street from him and behind him (essentially everyone in my neigborhood EXCEPT for my neighbor has at least two dogs and a cat). He said he would trap them all and send them off to the pound. He has never, ever complained about the cats before. Not once! And we see him in the yard all of the time... he had plenty of opportunity. He just bought the house 6 months ago. The previous owners had flowers, too, and always told me how much they enjoyed the cats. I miss them! Why did he have to approach it in that manner the first time he complained? I cried when my husband told me because I can't bear the thought of someone hurting my cats or even having to give them up. Anyway, I got on-line and found something called Catstop. It essentially keeps cats out of flower beds/off property by sending out a high-pitched noise if it detects a cat. Humans can't hear it so I'm thinking about ordering a couple for HIS yard. At my expense, of course. When I deliver the Catstops to him, I'm also going to tell him that if I ever find dirt on my car again, I'll return it in the same way. How come people have to get so worked up before even trying to find a solution? Can't anyone be civil anymore?
Anyway, I hope everyone feels free to let me know what they think about the situation, the Catstops (as far as them being cruel, etc...), and anything else. I would keep them inside but two of them were farm cats before I got them and they cry, cry, cry to go outside whenever I keep them in.
Just trying to keep my cool (pregnancy hormones aren't helping),
