A Heartfelt THANK YOU!!

As we bid farewell to 2012  Cody and I  want to thank all of you for sharing your time with us.....we love you and wish you a Happy and Safe New Year!

Here are 2 photos of cards that Cody and I received during the Holidays (we received others via email that are displayed on the side of our blog) We THANK YOU!

The first photo shows one of our favorite cards from our friend Mario......

It was designed to be a
Christmas tree ornament
and we think it is sooo cool!

I have these proudly displayed on the closet door in my office where they will stay til the end of January! I LOVE THEM! THANK YOU!

Then, when this post was already written and the above photo had been taken, we received this adorable card from our friends at The Furries of Whisppy it is just too cute! THANK YOU!!




Cody and I have been blogging since October of 2009 and this is the first time since we began blogging that I am uncertain as to whether or not we will be blogging another year.

 I am not sure what 2013 is going to bring. There is change in the air, what that is going to translate to,  I don't know.

 Will Cody and I be blogging in January? Yes.

 February? Yes.

 March? Probably...

April? Remains to be seen....to quote my furiends at Avalon Cat Cartoon Blog

"Que Sera!!!!!!!!"

Whatever is on the horizon and whatever changes might have to take place, we will welcome them knowing that whatever is meant to be will be.

We're buckling up for what should be an interesting ride.....

WELCOME 2013.....
We're ready for ya!

Love, Caren and Cody

  8. Happy New Year to you all too....I know what you mean about "who knows what the future will bring" but that's part of the excitement of the future - NOT knowing. Good/bad/ugly, we can handle it because we are all part of a BIG circle of friends. Caren you're one of the most active animal advocates I know - giving of your time and energy - keeping all of us aware of issues, events, comings and goings....great book reviews, product reviews, and most of all wonderful FRIENDSHIP! Sam and I will follow you wherever you may go.....whatever you may do. HAPPY NEW YEAR.......

    Love, Pam and Sam

  9. Oh gosh, that isn't nice to say things like that. So what is going on. Sure hope it will be some good changes. We sure will hope for a good year for all of you and that what ever the change is will be a good one or if it is a bad one, it won't happen. So we wish you a very Happy New Year. It will all work out. Just remember to be positive.

    1. Happy New Year Speedy!!!!!!! Thank you soooooo much! We will see. I am super anal and whatever I do I have to give a zillion percent but your idea is a good one and a definite possibility! As it is, I am thinking of cutting back and blogging just 3 days a week per blog as I originally intended to do. No matter what I will be cutting back. The 7 day a week thing (or 6 days per week) is too much! Love you! xoxoxo

  51. Hi Miss Caren and Cody. Well, Mom and I read through some of your replies to the other comments to see if we could learn a bit more. If it helps, we are FOR SURE dropping back to 3 days a week, no weekends, after my one year blogiversary. We made that a goal and we are busting both butts to get to it in March. And Mom is retired! Our changes were mostly 2012...we returned our home to the bank, first time in over 30 yrs Mom and Dad don't own their home and now we rent. Not fun for sure cuz we all kind'a want to try out having another kitty and we have to ask 'permission'...ugh. We are not done yet with the bank, but almost. Dad is also retired. Whatever is going on for you Mom Linda and I send you bright white energy and purple soft glowing relaxing light. Peace be with you all, paw pats, Savannah

    1. Hi Savannah...well we are going to do our best to cut down to 3 days a week. When we began blogging that is what we intended to do from the beginning. The other days would be reserved for if something comes up. Having two blogs now (I didn't have two when I first started) it has become ridiculous. I did over 60 posts in December (for both), I know people do more than that but I don't like it. I have no life. I am so sorry about your home, that has to be quite hard..I am so sorry. Ours is strictly financial. My husband is retired...I have been out of work since 2007....enough is enough. I am too young to retire but I am drawing on my pension early. Thank you for your kind thoughts, they are most appreciated! Paw pats back.
