Ughhhh...fun weekend, but I am sore. Friday night was dinner out for our friend who is deploying to Afghanistan this week. Saturday, we loaded a metric poop ton of old landscaping rock on to a truck. Yesterday, I did a mountain bike race and then played pickup hockey. Tomorrow, I'm hosting Bunco, so tonight is cleaning and making dessert (low carb cheesecake).
Well, we're quite the social butterfly, aren't we?

Seahawks and 49ers here Sunday. I'm so torn...I don't know who to support. 49ers are my hometown team, but I live *here*....<sigh> Think I'll just support the Dawgs (UW Huskies) and forget about everyone else.

In other news, I just committed what little free time I have to the local democratic party *and* the grass roots "go and vote" movement on campus in order to help insure that in 2014 and 2016 we fill both houses and the oval office with strong Democrats.

Also in about an our I am accompanying an immigrant Muslim to go test for American citizenship ensuring that he will be able to vote as well.

Here's some cuteness: Nick went to the cabin on Saturday for two days, with his youngest. The oldest stayed in town at his mom's house (he gets bored up at the cabin b/c there are no kids his age up there). THEY GOT THREE KITTENS!!! Three black male kittens, about 7 months old, changed one name to "Bucky" (as in Cal Clutterbuck, our favorite NHL player), and the other two kept their original names: MOnkey and Cowboy.

I think "Cowboy" is the coolest cat name ever.

That's so cute! Love those names. So, who got the kittens? The older boy with mom or Nick's youngest at the cabin?

We had two kittens once (both black) named Tia and Titan (I didn't name them) and a dog named Ninja. One day Chris pointed out to me that our animals were TNT. <shrug>

Oh, and the stupid aggressive tried to bite me the first day he got her snake that I refused to pick up without leather gloves (I am not afraid of snakes, just her) was names "Precious." Don't even get me started on how that name was SO wrong for her.

THe oldest who stayed home with his mom. They went for one kitten, but didn't want to break up the triad of brothers, so they got them all. THe boys are very happy (they love cats).

Fun!

There is a very pretty cat named Cowboy in my 'hood. I guess the lady that lived in my house before me must have fed him or pet him because I come home and he's laying agains my garage door relaxing. Or he lays on the fence and harrasses my dogs. They go nuts and Cowbut pretty much rolls his eyes. I swear I can hear him snicker...

Ha! Good luck with that! Let me know how that works out for ya!

And bad news for your Muslim friend, it takes YEARS for citizenship to go through, assuming he'll be granted one. Don't think he'll be voting in any elections anytime soon.

Have you sent emails or FB posts to your Congressman and Senators stating your opinion on Syria? Whatever that opinion may be.

Present tense activism goes hand in hand with future voters.
