Dagan and Leah were going to go over and visit the cats again to get the cats more used to them before they pick them up on Sunday, but then decided that it wasn't really necessary. The cats were friendly to them and Dagan and Leah know they want them. Seeing them one more time probably won't make the transition much different for Sammy and Annie. It was an icky night, too. Cold, raining...generally yucky.
So they came over here and basically spent the time helping me with the McLap and my 12,000 photos--hehe! Finally figured out how to have copies in folders like I had on the PC-outside of iPhotos. I can use the iPhotos--well, kind of have to as that is where they go automatically from the camera--and when I am done with them I can export them out of iPhoto and into the main part of the laptop called Finder. We deleted all the 12,000 photos in iPhotos.
Yes--I was up to 12,000 photos with what Leah had on her camera for Etsy that we uploaded that same day with all the 11 1/2 thousand photos from my PC. No wonder I couldn't find anything! They were all located as one day's photos! True--Mac's iPhoto does its own automatic sorting of photos, but it was completely different from the way I had had them organized. I couldn't find what I needed easily--at all.
Anyways, now I can export the new photos after I use them in the blog and I am able to organize them in my very same folders inside of folders inside of folders. My own crazy system that I developed over the years on the PC--tada! I can now find everything! And--honestly--it is actually easier to use iPhoto for posting pictures on the blog than using the PC.
Okay--as you know, I haven't been feeling very well for the last week or more. I had Dagan and Leah take pictures for the blog last night. Dagan can be such a card!
If ignored, Karma slept under the art table.

Dagan trying to get a closer shot of Miss Karma. You can see her ugly side--about ready to hiss if he doesn't back away shortly--hehe!
Leah at the craft table. I did get a chance to show them the new items that have come so far and the things we got from Sue in Alaska.
Speaking of ugly side...hair tied back in a pony tail, no make-up, feeling crummy, and in my grubbies. Now you've seen me just about at my worst--hehe! (Thanks, Dagan!) But I am always taking pictures of them and never of me--true. This is why--ROFL! But--it's the real me.
Here's Dagan pretending he's crafting--ROFL!
Honestly--I apologized to them later for being cranky. I try never to let my pain effect how I treat other people, but I did get exasperated a few times last night. Just not as much patience as normal, you know. Computers can be very frustrating--true--and then the stupid debit card--sigh. We all talk at once and over each other all the time--but it was making my headache pound last night and my ears were ringing like crazy loud. Anyways, no excuse. I don't believe that "love means never having to say you're sorry"--hehe! We're fine. And obviously we did a lot of laughing, too.
They're going to let me know after the cats are home how they're doing. I don't want to go over to visit if they are already scared, you know? Give them time to settle in a bit. Some cats adjust quickly and some take a while. They won't know until they bring them home. So exciting! Looking forward to meeting them. :)
39 degrees and another white cloudy day. Still raining off and on--very lightly. I have not been on the computer much lately--except for blogging. I will eventually get to comments and emails--all of which make me very happy to see in my inbox. Just takes me a longer time to respond sometimes. But I want you to know that I appreciate them all! Thanks so much for thinking of me. Brightens these low days, that's for sure! :):)
Have a good day. Hug somebody. Forgive somebody. Let someone know what they mean to you on this fine day. And it's okay to say you're sorry. :)
