Monday Mumblings

We had loud thunder boomers again in the middle of the night. Mommy asked me if I was okay, but I decided not to come out of my box until the boomers were done.  Mommy had already fallen back asleep by then.
And now the sun is out.  Go figure.
I think this is going to be a long post. So get comfy.  Have some snacks.
Mommy has been bugging me all morning. Petting me and giving me scritchies. Picking me up and kissing me and petting me. This is such a hard life!
I know Mommy has been worried about monies lately.  She bought the chair and now is behind in her insurance and can’t afford stuff like foods for a while. She doesn’t regret buying my bed, cause she knows it was a good thing to do for me. And she needed the chair. The only place she is going is to the doctor later this month and she is now only spending monies on medicines. Food shelves have cut waaay back on the food they give out, cause more peoples are in need and they have to make it last for more peoples.
What she would like to do is buy a walker that, when her legs get tired, she can turn around and sit in.  It would be particularly nice when she is downtown and waiting for her ride home.  There aren’t that many places to sit outside and they removed the concrete thing that people used to sit on by Target because peoples were sitting on it and the store thought that was unsightly. So peoples like Mommy can’t sit, either, and she can’t stand that long sometimes. She also needs new shoes.  Now, not like most ladies need new shoes.  Her legs and feet swell and she can’t wear most of her shoes.  She couldn’t even wear her boots last winter. And peoples need boots in Minnesota in the wintertime! She actually gave a bag full of shoes she couldn’t wear to the Salvation Army a couple months ago.
What she thinks is totally unfair is all the ads on tv about pizza, cause she can’t afford it.  Angel brandi used to like Hamm pizza (ham + nom—did you know that??? Angel brandi told me). Mommy likes sausage and cheddar cheese and she definitely can’t afford stuff like that. So it’s like every other add is for some pizza delivery place. And every other other ad is for restaurants or fast food places.  Not fair! At least she doesn’t mind the car commercials. She doesn’t drive anymore. Or the beer commercials. She doesn’t drink beer! But the Soda Stream ads….
Pet food ads she still thinks are cute. Thank Cod!
If anyone can help us, that would be so welcome.  And if someone wants to put a little something into our paypal account for my next vet visit, too, well, I can go without!! Right, kitties?
Love to all, and special purrayers for those who are sick,

You had boomers that night? We had only a little rain on our side of town. Isn't it weird how that happens?

Nerissa said...

I hate thunder storms, too. They're so loud and scary.

I sure do hope that things get better for you and your mom, really soon. In the meantime, you give your mom lots of hugs and kisses and cuddles, okay?


Father Tom said...

Hope things look up for you and your mom soon, Quinn. We're so happy we could come by and visit and thank you for your kind words when we lost Tom.

Take care xx

Mom Julie, Mittens, Tinker, Angel Tom and Anastasia

I feel so sorry for your Mom but both my peeps are unemloyed and we're barely getting by. We've cut out a lot of stuff too like restaurants.
