The differences between men and women

I realize that you could have a whole blog dedicated to the idea that men are from mars and women are from venus. But here are a few things that I have noticed lately that make our marriage hilarious:

-Steven built a computer. Yes, you heard me correctly. He took a bunch of pieces of I don't know what, got a whole bunch of wires and cords, and built a perfectly beautiful computer. The funny part, he sat me down and told me how all of it connects and works with the most animated voice and facial expressions. The other funny part, I WAS SO LOST THE WHOLE TIME. (But went along like I understood of course. Trust me, one long explanation, that I don't care about, was enough) HA!

-Steven's mom texts little reminders because she knows that if she tells him, it won't happen. Makes me laugh every time!

Now it's time to bash on myself I guess...

-I worry and fuss WAY TOO MUCH: Did kitty get his water? Did I remember to cash that check? Is our rent due? Do I talk funny? Will Steven do well on his test? Will Steven get adequate sleep tonight? Did I remember to turn off all the lights in the apartment? Do you think the air has just enough humidity to ruin my finally perfected hair-do? Will the Bishop notice that I had to take potty breaks during sacrament meeting two weeks in a row now? Seriously, sometimes I need to get a grip.

-The extensive wardrobe is kind of...AWESOME! Oops, I mean, unnecessary. I went through all of my clothes last weekend, filled an entire trash bag that I donated to Goodwill, and it still seemed like my closet was stuffed. And then what did I do yesterday? I bought two more shirts. Ya, I admit, serious weakness of mine...but it was on clearance!

So the moral of the story? Men are awesome. Women are more awesome. I mean, equally awesome. And that's the way Heavenly Father created us to be.

kitty love

So I lied about the 30 days thing. If you're really that stalkerish about my life (which I doubt) and are DYING to see the random things that I like/dislike then find me on facebook.

Anyhoo, I decided I would devote a blog entry to our silly little kitty. First, I would like to apologize to all of the "dog fans" out there and say that I am also a fan of puppies and dogs. I just believe that dogs need a yard and much more attention than Steven and I have the time for right now. Well, maybe "time" isn't the right word. We're just NEVER home. Dogs are very social. Also, Scampi has become our child. Seriously. I just looked through my camera two seconds ago and EVERY picture but one is of him! HA!

Adopting our sweet boy was one of the best decisions ever! Steven was very against it for a while, and it is SO funny how he has come full circle. He can't get enough of him! I think part of the reasoning is 1) he is SUPER cuddly 2) he is really funny and slides and runs into walls 3) and he is so much FUN to play with!!

Our kitty also has quite the goofy personality. I grew up with cats (no more than one at a time though, we weren't crazy people) and there are certain cat "mannerisms" if you will. Some mannerisms that are very common are that they HATE having their tummy touched, you will NEVER find a cat sleeping on his back, and there is no way on earth you could ever cradle a cat the same way you hold a baby in your arms.

Needless to say, Scampi does/likes all of those things. I have a few pictures to prove it.

(best example! HAHAHA)

(this last one was added for extra cuteness. It is also very common for cats to sleep or perch on weird things. A backpack for example...;))
