Ali, Ali, Ali...






Sunday, I had had it. I was done. I didn't want to be a mom anymore! I get that way more often than I should, but here's why this day was different. We have an unfinished basement in our new home. I love it, cause I can throw the cats down there at night and shut the door- I can shove the kids down there too sometimes when they get a little rowdy! But it's where the kitty litter is, and the cats food and water bowls. I haven't been down there for a while, but when I went down there on Sunday, there were little piles of pooped in cat litter all over the basement, and some of it was a wet sticky mess. Do I have to tell you who was responsible for that? It took me hours to clean it up- I shop-vac'd and scrubbed with bleach, everything I could think to do to prevent the cats from pooping all over my basement. After which, I crashed on the couch to finish conference in a relaxed state. Little did I know, Princess AliAnah had sneaked down the stairs again, and when I found her, she was making a "potion" out of kitty litter, water from the water bowl and kitten chow. Luckily it was confined to a cup she had brought down the stairs with her, but in getting to the point it was, she had once again scattered little bits of litter all over the floor. Needless to say- I was a little bent out of shape. And today, I still am- in the process of cleaning, I hurt my back somehow-

Today was a pretty relaxing day. I took pictures of Ali early this morning while the light in my front room was still soft and pretty. I love the photo editing I can do on my new computer, it's just the version it came with. I can't wait till I can afford to upgrade this software and get something REALLY fun! Tell my what you think!

Those pictures are beautiful!. She is way too cute to do anything naughty...lol...but I know all too well that cuteness hides the naughty things they do!
p.s., there is absolutely nothing more stinky and disgusting than cat poop...except maybe dog poop...hence no pets here

The pictures are beautiful. What software is it? Sorry she's being such a stinker. My sweetie likes to make potion out of anything she can find in the bathroom. I just had to toss my bathroom rug, a towel and a washcloth due to her experimenting.
