altho the re 7 at first glance would seem to be am "if at first you do not succeed" wo4, the meaning is very different
5:05 am

ok thank you, will go hunt that one.
5:08 am
sprite

that was a brilliant clue, thank you. And I looked up the meaning, so I have learned my something new for today. I seem to remember a lookalike word starting T too.

indeed, but that is a worm, lol. Now to remember both.

Did you all have a good day yesterday?
5:14 am
BabbleRabble

yes, thank you
5:16 am
sprite

apart from both the washing machine and myself falling ill, it was great. We did the gourmet thing and the kids had such a wonderful time! Tim loves to cook and was delighted to be able to cook during the whole meal. Caya was beaming with p5 and joy that she dared to do it at all. It was a quiet and happy day.

How about yourself?
5:16 am
Sally-catlover

Ah! Thank you for the p5 :-)
5:17 am
sprite

yvw, I caught myself typing it just in time.
5:17 am
Sally-catlover

We had a great day. We don't do the stressed Christmas these days. We had a quiet day, nice traditional lunch about 3pm, then watched a DVD.
5:18 am
Sally-catlover

Sorry you were ill though sprite.
5:19 am
sprite

lovely, Sally. We lowered the stress levels too and are enjoying things much more as a result.
Yeah, was bad timing, but I so enjoyed watching the children and my love eat and have fun.
5:20 am
Sally-catlover

How old are your children? Ours are all grown up.
5:20 am
sprite

mine sometimes think they are, lol. Tim is 12 and Caya is about to become 11.
5:21 am
BabbleRabble

Is Tim as eager to clean after as he is to cook?
5:21 am
Sally-catlover

That's a really nice age. Just wait till the teenage angst hits!
5:21 am
sprite

absolutely not, BabbleRabble!
5:21 am
BabbleRabble

What a surprise~
5:23 am
Sally-catlover

My son loved to cook when young, and I always encouraged it. He still cooks now, for himself and his wife (and now his baby son). However, I think he still doesn't do the clearing up!
5:23 am
BabbleRabble

there is a church-seat alloy
5:23 am
sprite

yeah, with Tim we are already starting, Sally. But we will all get through that eventually, I trust. So far, I kinda enjoy seeing him grow up and I recognise the mixed feelings.
5:25 am
sprite

we have the rule that the one who cooks doesn't have to clean up after, lol. But I also demand that they cook relatively civil... no empty wrappings and such kept lying about, spices back into the cupboard, etc.
5:26 am

she wrote to the tooth fairy on xmas eve, she lost her tooth and broke it on a piece of santa candy...
so she got a reply from the tooth fairy saying how lucky she was, and how rare it was to lose a tooth on xmas eve.
The toothfairy left her $10 as a bonus and explained that the broken tooth (from santas lollies) would help a toothfairy gain both their wings at once
6:08 am
sprite

that's all I have so far too, lil.
6:08 am
mrpresident

Maddison was so excited that she helped a fairy get their wings in one go!
6:08 am

we did dinner on xmas eve, had a muslim friend over (one of Maddison's class mates) and he celebrated with us.
It was so magical! He enjoyed it so much! we got all the carolling, the festive bonbon breaking, the visit from santa down the street throwing lollies to the kids... they had an absolute blast!

6:12 am

that sleep schedule suits me, mrp, got 5 hours last night. Got up early so we have extra time to get to Seattle. The roads are likely to be icy, but on the main ones the snow at least is gone.
6:22 am

that calls for slow and careful driving, stiddie. Don't get too tired!
6:22 am
stidmama

mrp, I am so glad you got to share your holiday with Maddison's friend! one of our boy's best friends often includes him/us in their family holy days as well.
6:22 am
mrpresident

we have our traditions... I love to celebrate xmas eve... huge dinner! we break xmas crackers and have carols on all day! We dance, sing and have a wonderful time...
when it is time for sleep, the kids go to bed and we stay up and wrap presents and put them under the tree.
Then, we put out beer and carrots (beer for santa, carrots for the reindeer) and toast in xmas.

The kids are doing well--because Dad is coping well, at least outwardly. Her mom is struggling--so angry at God. I spend every Tuesday afternoon with the kids and we have fun together.

I agree, Peri--I found 56 so far, but not seeing many more possibilities.
6:47 am

anger is a natural reaction in such times. A good support group would do Mom a lot of good
6:47 am

scrab, funny enough (I say that outwardly) I was never angry with God, just angry with the people who didn't side with me and told me God had this all in his plan

8:09 am

lindy, visiting inlaws?? HOW did you get out of it??
8:11 am
aslindy

well... we've had a lot of expenses lately, plus both daughters in college and under a lot of pressure, I direct choir at 3 Christmas services at our church... we don't need extra stress of travel right now.
8:12 am
mamabook3

good for you... not letting yourselves be pressured into stress
8:13 am
mrpresident

I told my husband.... 'if you want to stay married, do not expect I will go to your family for xmas/new year holidays!'
Everytime I get sucked in, I get screwed and they blame me for whatever they can.
Amazes me really! Cause their baby can't do wrong
8:14 am

I was about at the point to tell my husband he could go it he wanted, but I was not going. then our oldest daughter talked to him, and he said, ok we'll stay home.

don't worry ... things have a way of sorting themselves out!
I "personally", go off like a frog in a sock when things are dealt with the wrong way...

my son is getting a pair of twin kitties for xmas, which I think you all knew....anyway, the woman who's has the kitties wants to turf them out at 6 weeks. i think this is way too soon....what do you all think?
9:10 am
NonoNanette

its about right Trif
9:10 am
jaianniah

It's way too soon. They should stay with Mama for another four weeks.
9:10 am
NonoNanette

they should be weened and trained to litter box by then
9:10 am
hurshy

6 weeks is fine if they are all trained and stuff
9:11 am
hurshy

my mart came to me at 6 weeks and he just made me his new mama. he's the happiest cat in the world.
9:11 am
Trifioso

isn't eight way better?
9:12 am
jaianniah

I have a pair, and they still nursed until four MONTHS!!!! People don't know that six weeks is too soon, cause the kitties seem okay, but they need Mama for other stuff. Like security.
9:12 am
flosey

back to bed for me, hopefully another hour or so of sleep, be back for flip
9:12 am
hurshy

but then they can turn to you for security - i think marty was still "imprinting" cause we have such a pair bond
9:12 am
hurshy

but six is the absolute earliest for sure
9:13 am
Trifioso

at least they will be together, that is good...
9:13 am
jaianniah

This is true- 90% of the time, it works out...but my daughter has a monster who needed another few weeks with Mama.
9:13 am
hurshy

if you want to go later it certainly can't hurt
9:13 am
movieman

I got my kitty Arnie when he was about 6 weeks old and he's turned out perfect
9:13 am
Trifioso

i am going to make sure they are at least weaned. if they can't eat solid food, taking them away is just cruel
9:14 am
hurshy

of course!
9:14 am
NonoNanette

speak to a vet about it Trif they will give you good advice
9:14 am

Very true, Tri. If they are still nursing, they will also cry a lot.

there are so many factors - my cinder was taken from her mother too early, but we don't know when exactly. someone just left the whole litter of kittens on the shelter steps.
9:15 am

ok i'm off to tend to routine duties
9:15 am
NonoNanette

happy babbling everyone
9:15 am
Trifioso

thanks all. you all are better than google
9:16 am
hurshy

she has issues. but hard to say how much of it is the early removal and how much the trauma of being dumped rather than having constant care.
9:17 am
redturtlehead

Hi All, Just reading back a bit, asking a vet is perfect, and also trif, if you want to get them later...just make up some excuse, that you are goingt o be too busy vaca, at that point...
9:18 am
Trifioso

i get that the lady is sick of having kittens around, I guess, but really, turfing them out too early just isn't right
9:18 am
Trifioso

she keeps saying the mom cat is "ready to be done with them"

I know, right? they are all over her playroom though, and prob that is annoying, having a room out of use
9:19 am

who knows? maybe the vibes of being unwanted will counteract the good effects of being with birth mother
9:20 am

it's not out of use, it's heaven on earth

9:21 am

i knew a person who had two cats for awhile and then thought about giving them away to someone else because they ate at the plants. i do not understand this at all. plants vs cats - no contest, i just don't have plants!
9:22 am

i'd take the plants over cats, and dogs over both
9:23 am

i can't imagine preferring plants over anything warm and cuddly and loving

Sally-catlover

Hi Trif, been running in and out here and not on chat. We found our abandoned kittens when they were only about 4 weeks old. Far too young to leave Mum obviously, and not even weaned. However, they have thrived, bonded to us both and are fine. They are actually the gentlest cats we have ever had. Have never put their claws out to us. At 6 weeks the Mum IS getting tired of them, because they will still suckle from her if they can. You should check that they are properly weaned, and what they are eating, before you take them. My old cat used to have kittens, and we homed them between 6 and 8 weeks. 8 weeks is good for the kitten, but 6 is good for the mother cat! I shouldn't worry. Perhaps compromise at 7 weeks?
9:28 am
Trifioso

thanks sally. i think i iwll talk it over with the human mom, and we can aim for seven, provided they are weaned, eating food, and you know, defecating and all.
9:28 am

10:00 am

OK Is this ridiculous. I ant to move to Florida permanently, to do this I have to put my house on the market. I am not anting to because I dont want the Neighbours to think that I cant pay my Mortgage!!!!!
10:01 am

one is more sleepy and one is more talky. a dr and a wo.
10:01 am

i think the thing to do is be proactive, red. when the hubs and i sold our first house, we told the neighbors on each side before we put the sign up, so that they wouldn't be surprised. manage the conversations, and you manage the rumors
10:01 am
Sally-catlover

There's an re 8/80, means to write something differently (past tense)
10:02 am
Sally-catlover

And the pr 8/55: something you might see a rainbow in with a robot ending.
10:03 am
Sally-catlover

Fireworks for me!!
10:04 am

yay sally!
10:04 am
Sally-catlover

Red, can't you just tell your neighbours you want to move to Florida?
10:05 am
redturtlehead

Oh yes, but the catty horrid ones will not believe it. I dont live there as it is, so I should not care. Pride is a funny thing yes?
10:05 am
Trifioso

make sure you tell the grumpy ones that you are buying a teeny, tiny house in florida, or you will be inundated by freeloaders
10:05 am

I think I have been therre for a total of one month broken up in 2008. a week here and there.
10:06 am

Well, at least you'd be providing entertainment for them red...and you'd be long gone anyway. It is amazing how we so often base our lives on what others might say or think instead of what we want.
10:06 am
Sally-catlover

Well, perhaps put a rumour around that you have come into a lot of money, are paying off your mortgage and buying a huge mansion in Florida?
10:06 am
Trifioso

or, find a photo of some big old plantation, and show it to them and say you inherited it from a rich uncle or something. if you are going to out, go big
10:07 am
redturtlehead

Iam finding it odd that I care so much. I think its because when I did like there, the couplle behind me ere rather annoying...
10:08 am
redturtlehead

My biggest desire is for it to just SELL. which probably wont really happen.
10:09 am
Sally-catlover

Do you get house details sent out by estate agents there? ( I think you call them realtors?). Get some details of some huge expensive places "accidentally" sent to your neighbours (your name, their address), and then ask them if they have received the details by mistake (wicked grin).
10:09 am
redturtlehead

Ha ha Sally! That is evil. :)
10:09 am
Sally-catlover

Good though!
10:10 am

I am going up there on Tuesday to clean and reorganize, then I will have to deal with the agents...and then I leave until April...so, I guess I ill let them gossip without me.

Walter's favorite gift at the moment is this card game. I was dubious when my husband suggested it because it is for 6 and up, but as long as we help him a little bit by just reminding him waht some of the cards mean (like the one that lets you put down all the ones of a certain color, etc.) he is actually winning most hands and already developing skill. Skill like if he CAN put down all his red ones he thinks for himself to end on the one that makes the next person take two cards, and the like. That's my boy!

Instead of bi- or trifocals, they are "progressive"--no lines. My glasses became crooked and my vision was off--very annoying. I went to the eye shop this AM and had them adjusted. But it is very annoying at this stage of needing glasses to read and for distance.

Boxing day originated as the day to box everything up, take down the decorations etc... but the most important part was to box up the left over food and provide it to the less fortunate
2:37 pm
Atalante

boxing day in theory is to do with people with christmas boxes for tips - so the milkman, postman etc etc
2:38 pm
redturtlehead

this makes more sense. they did say it was a time to visit people you may have not seen all year. but I had a feeling someone got it wrong somewhere.
2:38 pm

you dont take down the decorations till Twelfth Night

Boxing Day dates back to past centuries when it was the custom for the wealthy to give gifts to employees or to people in a lower social class, most especially to household servants and other service personnel. The name has numerous folk etymologies[3].

As with Christmas itself, some elements of Boxing Day are also likely related to, and ultimately derived from, the ancient Roman Saturnalia, which also had elements of gift giving and social role reversal.

here at least: Twelfth Night is a holiday in some branches of Christianity marking the coming of the Epiphany, concluding the Twelve Days of Christmas, and is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as "the evening of the fifth of January, preceding Twelfth Day, the eve of the Epiphany, formerly the last day of the Christmas festivities and observed as a time of merrymaking".

Not "some British King", but: "Good King Wenceslas" is a popular Christmas carol about a king who goes out to give alms to a poor peasant on the Feast of Stephen (the second day of Christmas, December 26). During the journey, his page is about to give up the struggle against the cold weather, but is enabled to continue by the heat miraculously emanating from the king's footprints in the snow. The legend is based on life of the historical Saint Wenceslaus I, Duke of Bohemia (907-935), known in the Czech language as Svatý Václav.
