Shining Star

Even I am shocked at how into the holidays I am this year. The holidays were so hard last year and I just wanted to skip December all together. This year things are so much better and life is how it should be. I put up my outside lights when I got home from work. I took my 2 spiral trees to work to have the maintenance guy help me put together. Talk about being embarrassed....it took him maybe 5 minutes.

Tonight when I got home I came in, put my stuff down and got busy on getting the outside lights up. I am a horrible Mom because I made Sophie wait for her evening walk. I don't have an outdoor outlet so I had to put an extension cord in the door or my bedroom. Well as I am trying to open the door (I have never opened it because there is no screen door) I am making a lot of noise. I look back on the bed and there is Bonk sound asleep. I go over and pet her and she doesn't move. My heart stops. Coming home and finding that she has passed away is something I worry about a lot. I moved my hand over her again and she jumped up like, "WHAT?" I was so happy that she was just sleeping. She followed me around for 20 minutes just meowing. I think she was a little upset that I woke her up. :)

I saw on the news the other day that the space shuttle has a machine that turns the astronauts urine into water. My question for you...could you drink the water knowing that it once was your urine? I don't know if I could.

I couldn't, but then I have no interest in being an astronaut either.

You think the water you drink has never been urine before? :) It's all part of the nature cycle.

I would like to think if i was an astronaut or stranded in a desert I would. I have been told by doctors that urine is sterile.So who knows.

I think it would be hard knowing that it was recently urine, but then if stranded without a supply of water, you can survive by doing just that .... un-(uh)-refined. I suppose I could, but I'd rather not be reminded.

I'm SO glad Bonk is OK! My heart skipped as I read that. whew!!!

Urine, water-depends on how thirsty I am an what my water supply looked like.

Space things scare me!

Stacy is getting started on our lights. I feel the Christmas Spirit stirring...

I'm so glad it will be a good holiday for you.
