Because she is old...


This is our dear cat Bonk who will turn 20 in just a few months. We have found that whatever she wants...she gets. Here she is eating the remains of Laura's cottage cheese. If any other cat (or the dog) would have attempted to do this they would have gotten in trouble. How can we tell her no? No is just not an option with her. BTW, she also loves whipped cream from our hot chocolate.


Yesterday morning I sent my resume off to an agency here in town. Well, it's a HUGE national social service agency with a chapter in the KC area. Last night at 6:15pm I got a call because they were very interested in speaking with me. So I have an interview on Tuesday morning which I am very excited about. I think I would go back to work before May if I could work for this agency. I will be keeping my fingers crossed.


Laura's Valentine gift was her new bicycle. My Valentine's Day gift??? I get a trip to the casino. I am so excited. It's been since the late summer that I have been. So Wednesday afternoon I have a date with the casino. I am hoping for a big win.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Wow Caroline! Congrats on getting a call back so quickly. I'm going to a legal staffing agency on Monday afternoon, so I have an interview too! I'll be crossing my fingers for the both of us!

Ohhh, I love Miss Bonk! How inventive she is when she really wants something!

I like that you are excited about the job possibility. Call me and tell me which one!

That's pretty agile for a 20 year old cat...go Bonk!

Laura, how appropriate (or should that be inappropriate?) that you have a cat named Bonk. Here's hoping that you never experience bonking (well, it depends on how you use the word! ;)

Congrats Caroline on the job interview! I hope it's everything you want it to be.

BTW, are there lots of casinos in KC? We have 6 casinos in our area. If you and Laura come down, you can use the money you save on lodging for the slots! :)

Wow! That was a quick call back for a resume. I'm keeping everything crossed that if it's a position you are interested in, then you are offered it!

Bonk is adorable - I can see why it is impossible to deny her. After all, she has put in her time and she deserves all the perks that come her way. :)

Caroline said...

yankee--good luck with your interview. hopefully we'll both have new jobs. YEA

lynilu--when she wants something she does anything and everything to get it. and if that doesn't work she just meows until we give it to her. email is on it's way to you

sharon--i had no idea what you were talking about when you said "bonk". laura got a good laugh about it.

casey--so are you saying that she put in "her time" with us like it was prison??? :):):)

Caroline said...

sharon--p.s.-we have 4 casinos but i am ALWAYS up for new ones.

Rose of Sharon said...

I hope Laura knows what bonking is...the *ahem* general term and the training term. Or perhaps it's the same thing? ;)

Congrats on the interview! You will do great! Have fun at the casino :)

Caroline said...

sharon--yea she knew what it meant. she had to explain it to me. hopefully soon i will pick up all the terms you guys use

eye--thank you for the good luck wishes. can you tell i am excited about the casino. i can barely wait.

That is awesome about the job! Bloom where you are planted Caroline!
Sounds like good Valentines for you and Laura. I am trying to think of something for Stacy but it's hard. Well, we say the house is our valentine but you need a "little" something special.

Sandra said...

I'm impressed! Oh yeah, if she's hungry, let her have it...she's like 108 in human years!!

Caroline said...

patti--thank you so much patti. i love what you said about blooming where i am planted. i will have to remember that

sandra--that is our attitude with bonk. whatever she wants..she gets.
