Mama: Hey guys, why don't you come say 'hi' to everyone? We've been gone a good while and lots have happened. I'm sure everyone would love to hear about our move to Pennsy--
Lalo: SSSSSSSSHHHHHHH! Can't you see that we're busy watching that...that...CREATURE?!
Zoey: Yeah, Mom. The Hunt before modeling!
*** Mama's Note ***
As I sit here writing this, Lalo is trying his darndest (is that a word?) on my lap to keep me from typing, grabbing my hand with his paws and pulling towards him, or licking my palm and rubbing his head on it, all the while purring. Between that and the rainy day, it's hard to muster up the will to work on a blog I practically abandoned more than 6 months past. I'd much rather cuddle the warm, purring cat in my lap and watch the rain. But I've been putting off restarting the blog for one reason or another, so I think I need to get to it!
|You're trying to resist THIS? That's cute. Not as cute a me, but cute.|
During our absence, we moved across the country, from Arizona to Pennsylvania. It was a very stressful time for all of us but somehow we survived. Lalo & Zoey HATED the plane ride (they were awake despite the sedatives), but they got over it when a squirrel came by our back door to say hello. Now the spot in the photo above is their morning 'viewing spot' to see birds & squirrels bustling about. (We even saw a big rabbit once!)
|Pictured: Two traumatized cats, willingly sleeping in their 'nothing good ever comes from getting in these things' carriers.|
Unfortunately, it's taking longer for me to recover from the move. The pain that caused me to take the long hiatus last year never improved, and with the stress of the move, it's worsened. But I hadn't forgotten about Ragdoll Tales; I've been thinking of various ways I could upgrade the site, like maybe adding captions to the photos themselves, or moving away from Blogger altogether. I'm not that technically savvy though, so I'm not sure if those plans will come to fruition.
|Is okay, Mom. I teach you. I learn through osmosis!|
We also lost my camera during the move--to which Lalo says 'good riddence,' and Zoey says 'it's time for a big girl camera--DSLR all the way, Mom!' I think Zoey's on the right track about camera upgrades, but the move wiped us out! I'm not sure when I'd be able to make a major purchase like a DSLR. So until then, I hope I can catch these two doing their usual crazy thing with the iPhone.
