Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

So much for blogging every day. I really do have the best intentions but seem to run out of time every day. I've just finished the Bent Creek-wedding sampler "and their love grew like flowers in the springtime" as a gift for a friend's son. He's getting married tomorrow and I look forward to giving them this gift. I'm still working on Blackbird Designs Midnight Watch in in honor of my little Maggie Mae. I want something to remember her by and what's better that a halloween cat since she was always my scaredy cat. She took a piece of my heart with her and there will never be another one like her.

Clarice continues to grow by leaps and bounds. She's up to 4.8lbs now which is amazing when you think that she just weighed .5lbs in November. She's very funny and so active! She's learned to climb the shutters in the bathroom and spends most of her days perched up there watching the world go by.

Where does the time go?

It's hard to believe that we've been back almost month now from our trip. I swear that I'm still trying to get caught up on my sleep and work life. I just can't seem to get ahead of the game right now.

Clarice did ok while we were gone and I think prefers Uncle Morgan taking care of her. The first few nights that we were home, she sat at the front door waiting on him to come over. She's grown so much and completely recovered from her ringworm....thanks goodness. She's a source of entertainment for us daily.

I have to go back the dr on Monday because I noticed a weird looking spot on my arm while we were overseas. They said it came back as skin cancer so they need to do a deeper cut and treatment on it. Gosh getting "old" isn't quite what I thought it would be. It's something new every day. I'm a little scared about the treatment on Monday because it just seems so strange to sit there fully awake while they cut on your skin...shudder. I think I'll take along my ipod with all Bon Jovi songs to distract me. Wonder what I can do for the smell....hmm.
