The One With July’s Little Things

Ohhhhh July. Whatta hot, hot, hot, hot, HOT month. Did I mention it was hot?! Not only were the temperatures WAY too close to Texas’s temps for my liking, but July was red hot with activities. Because obviously I’m going to choose the hottest month yet to be busier than a bee….way to go KitKat (Oh! So sometimes I refer to myself as “KitKat” in my head…Think Lizzie McGuire cartoon but holding a KitKat bar, that’s basically what I always picture ………….moving on) I spent the 4th celebrating America’s birthday in Big Bear, had several people come visit, started working on redesigning our rooftop patio (got lots of DIY posts coming up), became addicted to collecting sweeeeet dumpster diving treasures to renovate, started marathoning The West Wing (p.s. I’m OBSESSED) and got acquainted with our new house guest Mittens. Y’all, I’m not a cat person, I’m barely even a kitty person, but we agreed to help out a friend for a few months praying Mittens would be calm enough to not wreak havoc on our bird Baylor/Robin Sparkles (yes she has 2 names) who hates everything in existence.


Let’s just say one day I came home to a disaster zone with the bird cage on the ground, bird seed everywhereeeee, Baylor/Robin Sparkles on the loose and Mittens meowing non-stop. This was followed up with about FIVE HOURS of me trying to catch Baylor/Robin Sparkles (who was out of her cage for the first time since January) as she flew all over the place tweeting duress signals, a frantic kitty chasing her around the apartment, me screaming and dropping to the floor like a fire drill every time she flew directly at my face and the kitty jumping over me like some slow-mo stealthy action movie. Thank God for roommates who eventually come home and use their cat-like (LOL) reflexes to catch a bird in one SUPER COOL motion similar to a ninja catching a fly with chopsticks. If you think I am making any of this up, I have Skype and physical witnesses.

July you were a doozy!
