Follow Friday

27 Aug

What an exciting week! And by exciting, I mean painful. My migraine that started late Sunday night has only just gone away today, Friday morning. Yay? Isobel is getting molars and was up a lot last night crying and pitifully gnashing the teeth she does have. And Poppy, our squirrelly girl kitten, started yowling and presenting like a mandrill the night before her appointment to get spayed. I’m looking forward to seeing my local and out-of-state BFFs this weekend and pinching Kingston’s squishy cheeks. If I’m lucky, there will also be thrifting. Happy Friday, everybody.


What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.
