Thursday 13 Edition 3 - About My Mommy


In eight days Mommy will be home for a visit. That's a lot of sleeps from now, so to make myself feel closer to Mommy and for her to feel closer to me, here's 13 things about my Mommy.
  1. She was VERY allergic to cats and rabbits till she was 19. She always loved cats, but couldn't touch them. One day she got near her friends 3 cats and her throat didn't swell up anymore.
  2. She got her first cat very soon after - T-Gray, the first "One Who Came Before."
  3. She works in Behavioral Health Care. She is a Social Worker by training and she helps lots of hospitals help sick people by teaching them how to run inpatient units.
  4. She travels. A Lot. An awful lot!
  5. She and Daddy will be married 9 years next month.
  6. She was adopted at 6 weeks old.
  7. Both her Mommy and Daddy have passed away, she was an only child.
  8. She is originally from the mitten state. Lions and Tigers and Pistons rule!
  9. Mommy loves Motown music! Trust me, when she's home it's the Temptations (not the treats!), the Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye...well, you get the idea.
  10. She makes GREAT egg salad.
  11. She was a vegetarian until she was diagnosed with Diabetes 3 years ago. It's very, very hard to be Diabetic AND a vegetarian. She used to say, "I won't eat it if it had a face." She now claims to be the world's guiltiest carnivore.
  12. She is addicted to Diet Coke/Coke Zero and CAN tell the difference between Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi.
  13. She loves me and my siblings and my Daddy very, very much.

Bonus "thing" - If she had it to so all over again, she would have been a vet.

Your Mommie sounds like a very great lady! I like her. My Mommie is a vegetarian too. I do not think your Mommie should feel guilty about not being vegetarian any more; my Grandma is diabetic, and I know you have to be very very careful with your diet.

What is "egg-salad"?

Big Piney Woods Cats said...

Oh, your Momma sounds wonderful, thanks for sharing all that info.

Our Momma is allergic to us, but she says she deals with it (and her nebulizer helps as she has asthma) She buries her nose in our fur and sneezes.
