I dislike Irving’s mother so much that I don’t know HOW I’m going to be able to stomach these Cathy comics for the next week until Thanksgiving is over and these two can finally return home and resume their (reasonably) sane lives again but I know that somehow I will. I’m just thankful his parents live far enough away so that, like poor Cathy, we don’t have to deal with her M-I-L from hell very often either. Makes you just want to say “AAK!!!” :-P
Hi, rgcviper! :-)
Hello and Happy Saturday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone’s been having a really great weekend so far! :-)
Poor Cathy! I just feel so bad for her because no matter what she says or does, there’s simply no pleasing the M-I-L from hell, that’s for sure. Why can’t that evil woman just be happy and satisfied with the fact that she was able to successfully guilt-trip her son and D-I-L into spending Thanksgiving with them (instead of her parents) and triumphantly leave it at that? A grilled cheese sandwich? Really? When there are so many restaurants open that day that serve the traditional Thanksgiving meal but without all the mess and stress to go along with it that they could go to instead? Yeah, right. Sure they are! :-P
<<< I’m inserting one of rgcviper’s eye-rolls here, just so you know!!! >>>
I’ve always thought Irving’s mother was a really nasty person and I don’t blame Cathy one bit. If I were her and being forced to spend time with in-laws I couldn’t stand, I’d be bringing along all my electronic devices too ….. just so that I could use work (whether I had any or not) as a really con-venient excuse to spend as little time in their actual physical presence as possible until I could finally escape and return to my own peaceful home again until the next visit with them I couldn’t get out of! :-(
Hi, rgcviper! :-)
lightenup and QuietStorm27: How are your girls doing? Hopefully they’re both over whatever was ailing them by now!
Hello and Happy Wednesday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone had a really nice day today! :-)
This saleslady is completely full of crap! Who washes their jeans in hot water, anyhow? Cathy should just do what I do: wash them in cold water (inside out if they’re dark), put them in the dryer for about 15 to 20 minutes then hang to finish drying. The only time I’ve ever had a shrinkage problem was with the gaining of some weight — in which case, I’d go ahead and buy the next size up ….. just in case. Buying the perfect-sized pair of jeans is already hard enough as it is without this kind of nonsense to go along with it! :-P
lightenup: How’s Jr. doing? Hope she’s continuing to improve every single day! Any official diagnosis yet?
QuietStorm27: Glad to hear your baby girl is on the mend and that you like your new job ….. for the most part, anyhow.
hendelca: Welcome back! Glad to hear you had a great time on your trip but we’re happy to have you back here with us all the same! ;-)
Hello and Happy Friday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone had a really great day today! :-)
Yes. Yes, they do! :-(
I really feel Cathy’s pain here. Next to buying Christmas presents for people when I have no idea what they want or need, trying to find new blue jeans that fit perfectly in every way (and at a price I’m willing to pay) is probably the absolute worst shopping experience I ever go through so I’m glad that I don’t have to do that dreaded chore very often.
lightenup: Poor Jr.! I’m so sorry that sweet girl of yours has been so under the weather lately. I’m afraid I don’t understand doctors letting anyone — especially a child — suffer from something that (based on years of experi-ence) they know is more than just a simple cold without giving them anti-biotics to at least begin the process of getting better before official test results come back days later. But on the other hand, I can also understand based on the fact that we live in such a litigious society these days that they’re just trying to cover their butts from a malpractice lawsuit if they give someone medication of any kind based on their “best guess” and then possibly have something bad happen because of it. But if I were them, I’d be less worried about that and more worried about a sick child possibly getting even sicker by forcing them to wait for an “official” diagnosis before prescribing much-needed medication instead. Too bad common sense isn’t anywhere near as common as it should be these days. Hugs to Jr. and I hope she feels better soon!!!!! P.S.: I’ve left you a return message on the 10/31 board.
Hello and Happy Monday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone had a really great weekend and a very nice day today too! :-)
While it’ll be a lot of labor-intensive work to do when the time comes, it’s good that we’ll be able to do it ourselves (thanks to my husband, who’s pretty skilled at that kind of carpentry work). It’ll save my mother a lot of money by not having to hire it out and we’ll know that it’s done right because we’re extremely picky, detail-oriented people. Believe me when I say that if it’s good enough for us, then it would be good enough for anybody! :-) And given the fact that I get to choose all the design details myself, it’s going to be done so nicely that I have the feeling I’m going to be EXTREMELY jealous of her when she finally moves in because she’s going to have a ton of things in her new space that I WISH had in mine but don’t (and can’t)! ;-)
Not sure what we’ll be doing about Thanksgiving. We haven’t gone furniture shopping yet so there aren’t any tables and chairs to host a family dinner here. I would imagine that either our daughter or my sister-in-law will have something at their house that we’ll be invited to but if they don’t, then we’ll just find an open restaurant to go to (which wouldn’t be the first time we’ve had to do). You don’t get all the delicious leftovers for a few days afterwards but you also don’t get all the time-consuming mess involved with making and cleaning it up either! ;-)
Hang in there, Sis! Everything will get better and now that I’m living in the same state you are, I look forward to meeting you in person one of these days. It’ll still be quite a while yet with all the work we have to do on the house (from top to bottom) in front of us, but once we’re done and I’ve finally got the time to do it, we’ll make arrangements for a “meet and greet” then.
Talk to you again soon! :-)
While fries, pie, chips, donuts, biscuits and cookies sound oh-so-good to me right now, I can get those things anytime I want. What I’d really rather have is some “cowboy food” in the form of a nice, big, juicy steak instead because we sold our old grill several weeks before we moved and we’ve been in our new house for almost 3 months now. But the buying of another grill will probably have to wait until Spring, when we plan to tear down that pitiful excuse of an old dinky deck we’ve got in order to build a nicer, newer one. Well, I’ve got a birthday coming up fairly soon so I guess a visit to a steakhouse somewhere will just have to suffice until then. It won’t be anywhere as good as my husband’s, of course, but when you’re in the mood for steak, something’s better than nothing! ;-)
hendelca: Missing you, dear friend. Hope to see you back with us again soon! :-)
lightenup: I couldn’t get here yesterday so I just now left you a message on the 10/31 board in response to your questions from that day.
Hello and Happy Thursday, fellow Cathy fans. Hope everyone had a really great day today! :-)
Hey, Sis! Glad to hear Jr. ended up going trick-or-treating after all and that your toe is doing better. :-)
Currently, nothing is going on here renovation-wise. Yet. A General Contractor estimate we got was too high (aren’t they always?!) so we’re going to be hiring our own subs to do what we can’t (like electrical, plumbing, drywall, tile and carpeting) while we do the easier things (like doors, baseboards, crown molding, painting and cabinet installation) ourselves. Our S-I-L is a master plumber and a supervisor of one of UGA’s many maintenance departments so he has/knows people who can help us. Unfortunately, since they work full-time during the week, any time they can spare us will be nights and weekends only so it’s going to be a slow-moving process, I’m afraid.
We had originally hoped to get my mother moved by Thanks-giving but it looks like it’s going to be Spring instead ….. something that I’m sure relieves and disappoints her all at the same time. At 81, I know she’s not looking forward to leaving her sister, church, friends, doctors and the ability to drive and moving somewhere where the only people she’ll know is us and her driving days will be over. But she also knows that she’s probably not going to be able to live on her own a whole lot longer anyhow so staying in Indiana by herself while we live 500 miles away in Georgia isn’t going to work long-term for her — or us — either. Given the two choices, she decided that moving was the better option even though it means leaving behind everything that’s so familiar and starting all over again somewhere else.
Well, it may still be a little while before she moves but it won’t be as long before she next sees us since we’ll be returning to Indiana for Christmas so I’m sure that will help with the bore-dom and loneliness she has felt since we moved in August.
Thanks so asking about our progress and we’ll be talking again soon! :-)
I would totally dress my little cutie pie up if I could because she’d look really adorable but my husband has always been against putting clothes on our dog so we never have. The one and only exception: a little sweater in the winter time. She only weighs about 7 pounds and has very fine hair so if she’s going to be outside for any extended period of time when it’s really cold outside, she gets her sweater put on. She totally hates it (always has) and I’m sure she doesn’t understand why we have to “torture” her that way but it’s for her own good so she doesn’t get too much of a chill. Once we’re back inside again, it immediately comes off so that she then doesn’t over-heat in the warmth of the house.
lightenup: They just grow up so fast, don’t they? B/t/w: how’s your big toe doing these days?
Hello and Happy Tuesday / Halloween fellow Cathy fans! Hope everyone had a really great day and that you’ll have a fun (but safe!) evening if you’re going to be out with little ones trick-or-treating! :-)
I’ve heard this about Disney. Not exactly “The Happiest Place On Earth” for the poor schleps who work there for years and years, only to find themselves booted out of a job once they get to a certain age and/or pay grade.
