On Saturday Hubs and I went to dinner and a movie with another couple. Hubs was sharing a story about his army days and I said, “Wait!” I grabbed my wallet and pulled out a tiny piece of paper filled with writing on both sides. It was a page of a letter he’d written me from the army. Even better, it talked about THE STORY HE WAS TELLING. To me, it seemed like a funny coincidence. I’ve kept it in my wallet for umm, like 12 years. Why? I don’t know. I just have. He looked at me like I was insane. As if I’d pulled out toenail clippings or something. Jeez, you show the smallest bit of sentimentality and everyone thinks you’re a stalker.

Is there something in the water?? It seems like half the women I know are pregnant. I’m getting calls from across the country with news that my girlfriends are expecting. Well, congratulations to all of you. Better you than me!

I laughed, I cried…I saw Wall-E and Wanted this weekend. They’re both great in their own way. Hubs said Wanted doesn’t have much of a plot. I didn’t go to see it for the plot! You want plot? See Wall-E.

Clementine, my demented and defective cat, turned on me while I was lovingly scratching under her chin yesterday. She had all claws and teeth dug into my arm and I couldn’t remove her. I went into the kitchen with the hell cat still on my arm and stuck my arm in the sink, under a running faucet. That got her off. She came back purring and rubbing against my leg 10 minutes later. Can cats be bi-polar?

I don't think there's anything wrong with keeping sentimental items from your past.

Did you know I still have the letters from JK when he was in the marines when we were seeing each other? and we're broken up!!! LOL.

Wasn't Wall-E GREAT!?!?!?

I think that is cute to keep that. Hubby actually kept a stupid drink coaster I wrote on on our first date. He still has it. Ok, psycho cat! That is crazy.

I think it is very sweet you keep that paper in your wallet. I think it's good to hold on to some small sentimental items. I do. It helps me keep my loved ones in my life with a small tangible object.

how sweet that you had the letter in your wallet? the only really sentimental card I got from Justin I keep in my car to look at while stuck in traffic.

and I know it sounds weird, but it always seems that the girl cats are the psychos like that...
