Reality TV...we might be featured.

Reality TV.
Shows that are show bizarre/wretched/weird that you can't stop watching.
You watch them.
Because...
it makes you feel normal.

Several months ago I was whining.
Whining about being an empty nester.

"Where did the years go?"
"How did I get so darn old?"
"WaaaWaaaWaaaa"


My youngest son moved home in November.
Waiting to go to Afghanistan....
or get married or go to a different University.
(All a potential war zone....
OK I couldn't pass that one up.
I totally love the girlfriend.)


This past week,
the baby girl moved home.
She decided she didn't want to continue with her education path.
She's going a different direction.

I'm really OK with all of that.




I had to give up my craft room and my guest room with these last two additions.

It's OK.
The house is all put back together now.

However....

In addition to having Candice back home....
she brings another CAT!

That's why I am pretty sure I'm going to be on a Reality TV show.

That's 4 cats if you are counting.
I've paid for everyone of those creatures to have their "tonsils" out.

Four! What a sweet cat momma you are. Once you pay for them to "get their tonsils out" (love that by the way), they are yours for life. :)

Saimi said...

I've already got you tuned in..Can't wait for the next episode!

Mildred said...

Oh my! I have 3 cats and it's wild @ here!

Hope all of you have a nice weekend!

Aunt of 14 said...

"tonsils" eh? :) You're so loving! But I do feel bad for you. Now your toilet paper loving cat has somebody to be mischevious with!

ailinh harris said...

Yup. You guys could definitely be a reality tv kinda family. I'd watch your show though. :)

Laura said...

Hah! That'w awesome. I'm sure a little bit of a change of pace for you, but still awesome! Although with 4 cats... I will pray for your toilet paper and paper towel rolls. ;)

Mumsy said...

I couldn't help but giggle while reading this. Glad your house is all put together and I am sure the new cat will fit right in...do you need more I can let you know where you can get another or two or more. lol Hugs

Barbaloot said...

Kids and the cats they bring---not a bad idea for a show:)

I like the new look on the blog.

You are SO funny! You better be careful. . .you are very close to becoming a "cat lady". . . .:)

tammy said...

Just let me know what time it will air and I'll be there.

M-Cat said...

You've now officially become the cat lady. At least no tonsils. You are a nice Momma to let them come home.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Wow you have had some big changes in your life in the last few months. How funny about the TV show. I was getting so excited thinking of you on TV. hahaha
I don't usually watch but I would have of course tuned you in.
Good luck with all the cats. If I lived close I could help you out and really make Tinkerbell mad. lol
Thanks sweetie for the words of comfort.
Love
Maggie

They always find a way to come back home. We still have our daughter & son-in-law here using our two guest rooms. I've gotten so use to it that is seems like they have always lived with us.
Four cats! Do they all get along?

Kristina P. said...

I am so sorry.

gigi said...

Oh, Happy, Day!
But the 4 cat thing would drive me crazy! The one 29 pound, 10 year old cat I have drives me crazy!!! The 3, one year old doggies aren't much better!
Good luck with that and remember to keep the bathroom door shut!!

And BTW, find that motel :D

Lisa @ Pulsipher Page said...

Just when you can handle life without kids...enjoy the party! Cute background!

Mikki said...

Oh no. Hopefully this one isn't a paper shredder.

Julie Harward said...

You know I just might watch one of those shows if you were on it! LOL

Connie said...

The Boomerang generation: they just keep coming back. No need to whine about being an empty nester! It doesn't last for long! I found that out! Good luck with the cats and the paper towels!

Love ya!

Lisa said...

So like, Hoarders? And you're right~I do feel better about my life after watching reality TV. Here I thought I was the only one. If you're collecting cats in order to be famous, I have one I'm not using right now. What's your address again?

Sandra said...

Yeah, maybe you'd qualify for Strange Addictions. Ok, I'm not quite sure what the addiction would be but surely having kids and cats move in counts towards something. No matter what, let me know the channel and time you'll be featured, I'll tune in weekly!

T said...

I'll be checking the TV guide for "4 cats and counting"...

yikes! you know that I am currently counting down the days 'til my kids start moving out (3.25 years). This post is not helping that remain such a sweet sweet thought :)

Stephanie Faris said...

I say they should attach cameras to the cats...the reality show could be the world from a cat's perspective!

Yvonne said...

I'll set my tivo and WATCH FOR SURE.

BTW, enjoy having them all home--even the cats; )

Cherie said...

Ha Ha I can't wait to see "The New Adventures of The Cat's At Egan's!" Kind of catchy if I do say so myself - snicker snicker!

Btw we are twins. I just put this background on my blog yesterday not knowing you had it!! Great minds think alike!

Holly said...

LOL! When it AIRS make sure the make it available online, since I MISS everything primetime! LOL! What's it called? "Refilling the Nest? LOL!!! Just send me the link! (((HUGS)))

wendy said...

yikes...........love the kids, yessirree,
but what ya got to do is downsize...see with my 950 sq foot house there is hardly room for hubby.
I require a lot of space.

that is one reality show I'd be glued to...can I be featured with you on one episode. Kinda like when the sluty, redneck friend comes for a visit.

Lisa Loo said...

I've got 4 cats a dog and 4 kids at home--trump that--

They've upped my med's and everything is just rainbows and unicorns here baby.

And I'm a little cat stupid. Just what are cat "tonsils" and why do they need their own quote marks"??

lifeinredshoes said...

We're damned if we do and damned if we don't, simple as that!
Just as soon as we adjust to your empty nest, back come the fledglings.
I am now going to my sewing room to pad the walls. It with from this day forward be known as The Looney Bin :)

lifeinredshoes said...

P.S. Want 2 dogs?

Kirsten said...

Poor Tauna used to have an empty nest,
But we all know what's really best!

Tauna, Tauna, where's she at??
Taking the tonsils out of another cat!!

Ha, ha! You make my day!

Emmy said...

Not the craft room! You are a better woman than I :) j/k I don't know when I last crafted as with kids my age, well they get into everything.

ain't for city gals said...

Yep,,,be careful what you wish for!

Doran & Jody said...

So what's one more? My Lexi really needs a home. When can I bring her up?
