I Got To Sleep In

For so many years, I’ve worked jobs where I had to get up early in the morning.  I’ve never been one of those people who could get up at 5 to be somewhere at 6.  I usually wake up automatically at 4 am.

This morning was a different story.  Somebody woke me up at 5 to let me know that his bowl was empty.  I filled Johnny’s bowl, and then started a pot of coffee.  I went back out to the living room.  Johnny’s bowl had not been touched.  Guess where I found him.

I guess it was a re-do for me.  He had to make sure he had breakfast when he woke up.


Sunday Selfies – May 26, 2019

Yesterday was such a bleak day that neither of us wanted to do anything.  I looked out the window and it looked all grey.  I went outside and it started raining.  So before I started working on what I had to get done inside, I thought a short nap would be nice.  This was what I found when I woke up.

I got lucky this time.  Usually when he points his butt in that direction, it’s a whole lot closer to my nose.  😁

Back Up And Running

Well, so far everything is back up and running.  The first thing that I put up was my site security and the Anti-spam.  During the time that I set up the new theme, I watched the security monitor.  For a while I had hackers from to Chinese universities, one in Beijing, and one in Peking.  They’re still there and trying.  I have to give them credit for being ambitious.

I hated losing all of the comments, but such is life when dealing with servers and websites.  I set up the backup plugin, but I’m not sure how that is going to work.  When I tried to restore from the backup, i got a message that the backup files were corrupt.  I keep the last two backups of everything.  My files are backed up every Friday and my WordPress database is backed up every 12 hours automatically.  I guess I Will be doing FTP backups as well from now on just to be safe.

Today, I’m gonna spend the day giving Johnny all the attention he can take.  I think he felt a little neglected yesterday.  I’m sure you know how tough it is to work on a computer with a cat standing in the middle of your chest.  He’s been having a little separation anxiety lately.  The vet suggested that I should put Johnny on low dose Xanax pills for this anxiety.  I don’t think so!  I know what those pills do to humans, and I certainly would never subject Johnny to that.

Sometimes I’ll take him out in the hallway and let him run for a little while.  The building manager told me a few weeks ago about letting him run in the hall.  “YOU CAN’T LET HIM RUN UNSUPERVISED IN THE HALLWAYS!”  I don’t.  With the crowd that the new owners moved into this building I would never leave him alone in the hallway.  I’ve been taking him out in the hall at least twice a day since I moved in here 12 years ago, and nit-wit manager or not, that will not change.  A few of the tenants, when they see me out with Johnny, will let their cats out and Johnny has a grand old time.  For being almost 14 years old, he still has a lot of kitten in him.

As for the site, I’ll need another day or so to get things up and running the way I want them.  I started using the Divi theme which I’m kinda learning as I go.  I got the logo to sit nicely up in the top left corner.  I have no idea how I did it.  I clicked something and it went right up where I wanted it.  I have no idea what I clicked, but I decided to leave it alone lest I screw it up.  lol  I figured out how to put up a header.  Now I have to figure out how to get my images to stop looking like I shot them through a dirty camera lens.  For a minute I actually thought it was my eyes.  Just in case I went and cleaned my glasses.  But my images are still a little fuzzy.  Oh well, I’ll figure that out.

Something else that has been kinda weird but nice this week.  Last Monday I had 832 followers on my Instagram page.  Today I have 2,524 followers.  I’ve been averaging almost 300 new followers daily.  I don’t follow everybody.  I made that mistake a while back and ended up with a following of about 800, and most of them were working girls looking for sugar daddies.  They wanted to know everything there was to know about me, especially financial information.  I never gave them anything.  Most of the time I would just annoy them for as long as I could until they dropped out of the chat.  This time I’m being a little more choosy about who I accept and decline follows from.

Well, somebody is giving me the look which means I should put the computer down and give him all of my attention.

After yesterday, I think I need it just as much as he does.
