Adam likes new wearing new accessories.

So I have a horrible secret to reveal.  I cause my husband gratuitous injuries.  Not like in a secret abusive relationship way, but either directly or indirectly, I cause Adam injuries on a fairly regular basis. For example, this weekend we decided to try cross-country skiing because the park system had a rental for boots... Continue Reading →

A new year, and a malfunctioning drawing tablet, so you’re stuck with this “cattoon.”

So my dumb ol' drawing tablet stylus is still broken and I had to order one from Amazon.  Boo.  But at least I'll soon be able to do better digital drawings than I did today with my mouse. What is this, you ask? I'm sitting on the couch, making a dumb face, with the "cats"... Continue Reading →

Drumroll please…………….TADA! Today is ONE FULL YEAR OF NOTACRAZYCATLADY!!!

Sorry for all the caps up there but I AM EXCITED!  This marks the end of the first year of notacrazycatlady and also the conclusion of my post a day challenge. For those of you from the beginning, you know that I have boldly accepted the challenge (from and I suppose myself) to post... Continue Reading →

True story.

Does anyone else have the problem where they believe their couches to have some sort of magical powers?  It's like as soon as I sit near/on one with a moderate amount of relaxation, I'm immediately cast under its spell for a minimum of an hour, usually 3.  What the heck? True story.


So I took this photo on our honeymoon in Maine and I know, since I'm not a crazy cat lady....that it would be fun to pretend the cats were there, too.  Since Smudge loves to get in the way of things he is photobombing a lovely shot of Duncan dipping his toes in the... Continue Reading →

JoJo versus the Helicopter

My little brother and sister got remote controlled helicopters and they were a big hit for everyone to play with.  However, JoJo the dog also found them....intriguing.  I can't really say how JoJo felt because he fervently began barking at it, following it, retreating from it, AND madly wagging his tail at it.  I can't quite determine what...

It’s a party!

This is a post live from a family holiday party!  I am a leaning cat because I am a bit tipsy, haha.  There are  a lot of family members here and I don't want to eavesdrop on their conversations so that's why I made them say "blah blah"...not that they just blah blah it up.  🙂

Ho. Ho. Ho.

So I was showing students this neat online whiteboard website and they asked me to draw Santa.  So I did.  Comments included, "He's creepy," "It's good but it's not good" (maybe 'cause it's creepy?), and "I like it."  I guess that isn't so bad.  Thanks, 7th graders; your 12- and 13-year old insights are invaluable and...

This is what you should look for when determining if your party went well or not.

Party's are a blast...especially when everyone starts drawing (please read this in the cheesiest voice and most sarcastic tone possible for full impact).  But we actually did have a ton of fun. Ken and Lee had a little get together and drawing commenced somehow.  Lee let me draw a few fun party memories on his... Continue Reading →

I went upstairs today to find Duncan just causally lounging on the countertop staring at the oven.  I know he was just making sure it didn't overcook.  What a good member of the household...
