I LOVE my CRaZy Life??!!!!!

There are days when I wonder if my life could possibly get any crazier!! I guess it isn't really the things that happen to me (us) is the WAY they happen!! It is hysterically funny how when the moments the "little" things in life are happeing how overwhelming, emotional and out of sync things seem.....and then an hour (some cases LONGER) later, it is plain, simple "funniness"! In anycase...I truly do love my unpredictible, spur of the moment, fly by the seat of my pants CRaZy life!!

TODAY, was a pretty simple is when the EVENING hit that things got a little crazy. I woke up sick, of course...and almost had Chris take me to the ER today. I was running a pretty high fever, I couldn't swallow anything and the sores in my mouth were about to KEEL me!! However, he gave me some liquid children's meds to get my fever down and I came to my own stubborn conclusion once again that I did not want to be admitted to the hospital and be their guinea pig for another week or two. So..I fell asleep for three hours and woke up in a pool of sweat, my fever had broken. Crazy enough, my mouth wasn' t hurting "as much" as it was before I fell asleep either. So...I got up, got dressed and Chris and I went mushroom hunting on our property in the woods. We didn't find anything but I feel so at peace when I am just sitting on a log in the woods with nothing but nature surrounding me! When we got back to the house Lyza had woken from her nap and her and Madisyn were happily playing with "Benjamin" the rabbit. We ordered pizza for dinner and then my father in law and "little" brother in law came over for a very nice visit. The kids played outside with all the animals and Lyza's toys (baby Little Tykes toys are the best for preteens!!!).

When evening did the Thunderstorms, Hail and Power Outages!!! Our electricity hardly EVER goes off....even in the worst thunderstorms and ice storms!! There was hardly even any news coverage on this storm because it was passing quickly!! Chris was lighting candles and I mentioned to him that my cat was he went to the front porch to retrieve "Smokey" and bring him inside. When Chris came in he said.."Aww, that Smokey is such a good cat, he was sitting next to "black pregnant cat" (she wasn't really ours and didn't even have a is now Mylee) and he had his paw on her head. I mentioned to him that if he could catch her, I would rather bring her in out of the weather, as I had checked her yesterday and it looked like her milk was really coming in and she would have kittens any time. SOOO, I headed to the front porch to get "Pregnant Black Cat" and I moved the wicker loveseat to retrieve her only to find what I thought was a long wet flower (we just put flowers out yesterday remember!! And it was REALLY storming and windy) that turned out to be a little gray kitten still attached to the placenta via the umbilical cord~~!!!!!!!! Yep! What a great time and place to start giving birth!! SO, in I ran with "pregnant black cat" in one hand and placenta with attached kitten in the other hand. Madisyn ran to get a laundry basket while Chris got the heating pad. CRAZINESS!

"Mylee" is doing fine and has given birth to 5 tiny beautiful kittens via candle light! They will be ready Memorial Day Weekend. Pass the word around!!

(These two kittens are about 2 hrs old in this photo...the Gray one is the one that was found on the porch! They are all currently either solid gray or solid black, I am sure that will change by morning)
