Hello there lovely people! I hope you’re doing all sorts of wonderful today! How were your holidays? I can only hope they were filled with good food, fun times, and unforgettable memories. For me, the past couple of weeks have been a mad rush of insaneness. I have not stopped since the week before Christmas. With parties, work, vacation, Christmas shopping, actual Christmas, and not to mention packing for vacation…well I was just a bit overwhelmed! But I honestly can’t complain.
I was able to have an amazing Christmas with my family this year! We each decked out in our annual red pajamas on Christmas Eve, had a sleep over in the living room, woke up at the butt-crack of dawn (4:30 a.m. to be exact) on Christmas morning, and opened presents. After presents were out-of-the-way, us siblings each broke off and went to our other family’s parties, oh the joys of coming from mixed families! There was another rush of food, laughter, and presents. Finally, that evening I returned home only to pack up in the car and head down to Florida!
Our Florida vacation was more craziness but so much fun! We went to Busch Gardens, The Outback Bowl (even though Michigan lost), we ate more food than any family really should, went to the beach, swam in the pool, fished, visited our grandma and grandpa, and enjoyed each others company. I will say this though, if I am EVER stuck in the car with my siblings for that long again, I will not survive. I cannot tell you how many times I turned around to check on Zeke only to find him naked, unbuckled, sitting in a mysterious substance that he spilled, throwing a fit, or any combination of the four.
Once I returned home from Florida, I was thrown right back into work. The days have been busy and more than slightly exhausting but I am sort of happy to be back and working again. I also signed up for my classes at my new university! I am so excited to start this semester off at a new school! I have a feeling it is going to be so much fun!
Also, did I mention I got a little something for Christmas? Something of the feline variety? Oh, I didn’t tell you? Well, please allow me to remedy that. I GOT A KITTEN!#!$#!#$! Her name is Lola, she is roughly 9 weeks old, she is black with white spots, and she is the current love of my life. I cannot get over her epic cuteness. If you follow me on Instagram (@KatelynTorrey) then you have been subjected to the MANY kitten pictures I have been putting on there. I have been asking for a kitten for over 2 years! I just assumed I would get one when I moved away from home so to say I was surprised is a giant understatement!I have been loving every moment so far. Lola is such a good kitten and she is hilarious too! I could watch her attack my jewelry stand for hours and not get bored. Well, that’s the little run-down of what’s gone on these past few weeks. I hope your weekend is wonderful!
Lola spends her days napping, showing my necklaces who is boss, coming out victor of several duals between toys, boxes, and whatever else she feels like fighting against, and she loves to snuggle! Getting plenty of beauty sleep is probably one of her favorite things to do ESPECIALLY if it is right on my shoulder. She has recently found that she can demand my attention by climbing up the entire length of my body just so I can hold her. It’s painful but it is also the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen so I doubt I’ll be putting an end to it soon. Come back next week for more kitten pictures and what I’m sure will be more Lola stories!
