more about my little kitty Arabella. When she was 11 weeks old she was very
 very sick with an illness called 'giardia' which is very difficult to cure and
most cats would die from it. I took care of her day and night, 24 hours for
over a year and I really mean, day and night. She survived and has been a
faithful constant companion, never leaving my side. She also talks all day
long and I would love to know what she wants to tell me. She actually tilts
her head to the side, looking rather comical, and talks. Sometimes plaintive,
 some other time demanding or with a soft purr....(she is not
a Siamese or Burmese, but a Burmilla. They are known for their intelligence
and playfulness and of course affection. ) I always had Siamese or Burmese,
 but the Burmilla is a combination of both with some Chinchilla mixed into
 the mix, and they really make awesome pets. You are never alone.

I love seeing Arabella - she is so beautiful! I remember the story about the infection too. It is a good thing it is not normally too severe and easily treated. Must have been a contamination at the breeder's or something. It is good she has you!

She's got such a sweet face and I am sure quite the mischief maker when she feels like it!! Glad to see this here :D

Hi Sabina
Sorry for being so absent lately, I just can't seem to find the time in between the kids, hubby, work, the house and scrapping of course. Priorities, you are so right, but somehow I can never set myself as priority no1. I suppose that's because the kids need me and they do come first. They all are at the age if not wanting their mom to interfere, thinking they know it all, but needing their mom more then ever!
However, I did read your stories and some thing you say sound so familiar. Before I started scrapping I spent most of my evenings watching television. When I watched I always had something in my hands, knitting, crochet, etc.
I do not write, but I love to read, which I still do. Lately I turn of the computer at about ten in the evening, so I can read a while before going to bed!

Your days seems quite busy, with all the exercises and specialists. I hope it is all worth while and you are recovering! I do think it's good you do things your way, doing the things you love. Life is too short to always do what other want from you. (something I try to avoid as much as possible). Just keep enjoying your art Sabina, it's real important!!

Hugs Jeannette

ps. I love your kitty, she is beautiful!!
