Kittens and Power Tools

I've been lazy about blogging lately.  Kind of odd, now that I'm getting more hits than ever.  All I can say is that I'm always tired now.  I still love my job, everything is great at home, I'm just fatigued.  Probably a lot of it is psychological now that I know my week of long overdue vacation is only weeks away.

Other than that, it has been a normal week for us routine-wise.  The kittens have been adorable, they are 8 weeks old this weekend.  On Tuesday they go in for the bad thing, but they may calm down after that and we won't have to deal with that smell ever.  They are getting bolder and went into the basement for the first time earlier this week, prompting a quick, thorough sweeping and cleaning of the floors and cobwebs.  Now they can go down there all they want, after all, that is where we want the litter box to ultimately be.  Warning, I have been trying to take some more pics for the inevitable cute kitten post soon.

Yesterday I skipped an in-laws get-together and reorganized the corner of the garage that holds the yard and garden tools.  Everything is up off the floor now, on hooks and such, making room to store my new toy.  I bought a table saw yesterday morning to help me in my various projects, including the compost bin I want to build soon.  So after cleaning up the corner of the garage I assembled the table saw and stand.  It is a very inexpensive one, 130 dollars, but I can't justify spending hundreds of dollars on a tool I will only use for maybe a couple projects a year.  After that and a bit of yard work I tired so I retired into the house for the evening.  Soon I will review the whole manual and play with it a bit to feel it out.

...When I'm not so tired. ;-|

Cute kittens! I may be the culprit behind your many visitors the past week...I showed kids how to get to it on my phone and they had to check out the kittens a few times. ;) Great you get a vacation! Enjoy!

Thanks, but it's obviously more than the kids (I can get the stats a couple different ways). I went from about 25-30 hits avg/day to over 40 hits avg/day just in the last month. A lot of hits are because of the pic dumps, but more people are spending more time here, and all over the world, too!
