Cool Cats

Well, not really cool cats, but we're cool...and we have a cat! DH is such a marshmallow!

I got home from work today to a wonderfully cool house - the air conditioner was installed while I was gone. What a glorious feeling. I no longer have to deal with the front door slamming shut each time I open it due to air pressure, doors warping so much they don't even close, humid summers when the swamp cooler doesn't work - and last but not least, the noise! It's blissfully quiet and cool (even a little cold!) and I'm loving it! I realized this morning as I was getting ready for work that the warm air makes me nauseous (what doesn't, right?)

And so then I got home and the fam went by the pet store to look at automatic fish feeders (thanks Kelly, for not letting the little guys starve!) and SP fell in love with the kittens. It doesn't take much for her to talk DH into things but I thought he'd hold out for longer than that considering how much he hates cats!

I'll post a pic of the cute little bugger when he comes out of hiding. He's under the couch right now assessing the situation. At least he's not hot!

7 backward glances:

W.O.W. a cat. I never thought you'd get a pet. Or, maybe just not a dog.
What's the little kitty's name?

Amy said...

yeah, tell me about it! you know we had cats when we got married but DH finally said [really], "it's me or the cats", lol. anyway, she named him Mickey. Cute, huh! It suits him. You know kittens are so adorable.

Congrats on the air conditioner...I'm a little jealous! Just in time to enjoy the rest of the summer...pregnant but cool:).
Kittens are the cutest, same with puppies. Will love seeing pictures.

I've been wondering how your feeling. I am surprised about the kitten. Honestly, a cat does suit you. Quiet, smart and a little misbehaved :)
Congrats on the coolness.. you will love it come NEXT summer too!

christy: come over anytime to cool off! i'm willing to share my good fortune!

rachel: yeah, i'm a cat person although i don't like to admit it. they're sort of cunning and conniving little creatures - what can I say? it'll be great to have the AC with the baby. i did worry a lot about SP being too hot that year she was born, lol although kids have been born with AC for thousands of years and we're all still alive. duh amy.

I can't wait to hear what's next :)

I will miss you being in the CSC Club (Crappy Swamp Cooler Club), but don't worry...I'll be joining your ranks soon :)
