Dear Reader,
I thought you would like to know about paperback swap. It lets you swap paperbacks or hard backs or even audio books to people, and each one you swap you get 1 credit or if it is a audio book you get 2 which you can "buy" a book with. There are a lot of good books there! And if you cannot find what you want you can put it on your wish list and when someone posts that book you get an email that tells you it has been posted. Upon listing your first 9 books you get 3 free credits! You should check it out! And if you decide to sign up make sure you put my nickname (kittykait) in the referred by box! Here is a link to the sign up page, and the how to swap page.

Just in case you were wondering I am not dead! I've just been veeeeeeerrrrrrryyyyyyy lazy about blogging lately. So I guess I have to give you some updates, Monday Lydia and I went to Mr. and Mrs. Bradrick's house (Mr. Bradrick works @ Vision Forum) to help out because Mrs. Bradrick had a baby about 1 month ago.
My thoughts {Tuesday Umm..... Well I think that I went with Dad that day... Yeah!! that's right because after work we went to Aunt Steph and Uncle Justin's house for dinner and DESERT mmmmmm!!!!!!!!! Stephanie makes goooood CHOCOLATE cake!!! Yesterday we dragged our feet for a while and then well... let me skip to the parts that I remember>>>>skipping>>>>> we did chores, and while I did my chores I found a kitten! It was SO SAD!!!!! It was crying, and crying, when I found it I did not know it was abandoned so I left is there to run up and tell Mom after a few hours I checked and it was still alone so I put some cat food out there and waited for a few more hours and it was still all there so Mom said I could bring it in. And the kitten was covered in ant bites! Now it is doing OK we feed it a mixture of:

  1. 1 cup evap. milk
  2. 1 egg yoke
  3. 1Tbs. white corn syrup
  4. 1 pinch of salt

After I found the kitten we went to a creek a few miles away and swam for about 1/2 hour, and went home, and while Mom, Deanna, Lydia, and Megan worked in the yard I made pizza!
Today I woke up drank a cup of slightly chocolaty milk and while everyone else went out and did yard work I did my chores, cleaned the house up a little bit, gave Rachael and The Boy a bath, and then went out to help with yard work while Lydia worked inside for 30 min. (we did 6 30 min. shifts) So I went outside and mowed and weed ate etc. for about 2 1/2 hours Then we went to spring creek (like yesterday) and swam for just over an hour. And... Well the rest of the day was kind of boring.

I guess you have probably been wondering about the tarantula. Well something interesting did happen with her today. SHE SHED HER SKIN!
Even her fangs!

this is a picture of the inside (I did not break the skin
open. She is just a sloppy shedder)
Did I ever say that she was missing a leg when we got
her? If you look closely you can see her little baby
leg growing back.

Happy birthday Gracie and Grandpa! My cousin Gracie turned 3 yesterday so here are 3 things about you:)
  1. She is one of my sister Rachael best friends.
  2. She is almost always happy.
  3. She was named after Grandma Brown (Grace Carol)
Umm... since grandpa is over 50 I think I'll just do the name thing!

Spoils his surprise birthday/Chrismas gifts because he's too good at guessing!
Teases us a lot!
Every time we go to his house he requires that we kiss him (not that we have to be forced)
Very Pretty (but not as pretty as Grandpa C.)
Excellent tickler!

The pretty thing is a family joke.

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

This post is a little late but I just wanted to say that I think there has been a mistake. My birthday (April 6) is NOT only celebrating God blessing me with 12 years of life but also (if not only) that 1 my Mother worked so hard to raise me for 12 years. And that she sacrificed sooooooooooooooo much for me, THANK YOU MOM. Here is the most perfect poem for you:


By Edgar Guest

Never a sigh for the cares that she bore for me
Never a thought of the joys that flew by;
Her one regret that she couldn't do more

Never a thought of the joys that flew by;
Her one regret that she couldn't do more for me,
Thoughtless and selfish, her Master was I.
Oh, the long nights that she came at my call to

Oh, the soft touch of her hands on my brow!
Oh, the long years that she gave up her all to

Oh, how I yearn for her gentleness now!
Slave to her baby! Yes, that was the way of

Counting her greatest of services small;
Words cannot tell what this old heart would
say of her,
Mother -- the sweetest and fairest of all.

And 2 it this is the 12th year that my Dad has worked so hard for me and the rest of our family day, after day, to have food and a bed and a roof to sleep under. THANK YOU DAD. Here is a poem for you Dad:


By Edgar Guest

Used to wonder just why father
Never had much time for play,
Used to wonder why he'd rather
Work each minute of the day.
Used to wonder why he never
Loafed along the road an' shirked;
Can't recall a time whenever
Father played while others worked.

Father didn't dress in fashion,
Sort of hated clothing new;
Style with him was not a passion;
He had other things in view.
Boys are blind to much that's going
On about 'em day by day,
And I had no way of knowing
What became of father's pay.

All I knew was when I needed
Shoes I got 'em on the spot;
Everything for which I pleaded,
Somehow, father always got.
Wondered, season after season,

Why he never took a rest,
And that _I_ might be the reason
Then I never even guessed.

Father set a store on knowledge;
If he'd lived to have his way
He'd have sent me off to college
And the bills been glad to pay.
That, I know, was his ambition:
Now and then he used to say
He'd have done his earthly mission
On my graduation day.

Saw his cheeks were getting paler,
Didn't understand just why;
Saw his body growing frailer,
Then at last I saw him die.
Rest had come! His tasks were ended,
Calm was written on his brow;
Father's life was big and splendid,
And I understand it now.

I am so sorry for the delays on the story which my sister and I have been writing. Since we have not been able to keep up with the schedule we are changing it. Instead of 1 chapter a day we will post a chapter each a week. There is no telling when in the week we will do it, or for that matter who will do it first, so keep checking back with us!
