CommentsWe received a total of 281 comments on our three blogs in January! That was way more than I expected but will stay true to my word and donate $281 to The Last Hope Cat Kingdom. Our charity for February is The National Children's Cancer Society but are revising the amount to 50 cents per comment.
SoccerI found out soccer is harder than I thought when I spent 15 minutes to learn a few basics at our Childrens Workers Breakfast at church. This video shows me demonstrating how to pass in soccer with the assistance of my cats--enjoy!
Personal News Network (PNN)Somehow, the owners of PNN found a way to keep it going after all. It's mostly a community for women to discuss topics. It's very easy to use and does have a nice way of featuring new posts. You may want to take a look into it at www.pnn.com.
Pet PortraitsConnie Bowen paints custom pet portraits. I discovered her website this week through in interview at The Conscious Cat. I think this would be SO much fun!
Sad News and Good NewsThe sad news is that I just learned this week that Sheri, one of my friends, has breast cancer (stage 2) that has spread to her lymph nodes. She will have chemo for four months, then surgery and then radiation. I was very sad to hear about this but trust God will bring her through it. I was so fortunate that I didn't need chemo and really had no pain. You are in my prayers--it's a long journey but doable. Hang in there!
The good news is that the groundhog did not see his shadow yesterday so we should have an early spring--hurray!
From Blogger to WordpressI am not planning to switch, but thought others may be interested to know that there is a way to switch from Blogger to Wordpress Without Losing Valuable SEO and Links outlined at Tentblogger. Who knows, maybe some day I will want to do this.

Breaking NightI never heard this term before I read Breaking Night: A Memoir Of Forgiveness, Survival, and My Journey From Homeless To Harvard by Liz Murray. It means staying up all night. I also learned that the safest place for a homeless person to sleep is on a top landing in a stairwell if they don't have friends they can stay with. This is an amazing true story that I just read. I saw the movie years ago. Click on the link to see our reviews of it.
