Illinois and a survey

Well, I’m in Illinois. It seems to be a weekend of doing nothing which, right now, I truly appreciate right now! I don’t know why but some days I just do not feel like doing ANYTHING. Very blah.

So we’re going to do a thing that maybe some people don’t agree with. And honestly, if there was any other way we wouldn’t do it. But there isn’t. We’re declawing the cats. I know, I know, it’s a horrible procedure. But the cats have become destructive. And I worry about any new furniture we buy, about having kids, etc. I just think in the long run it’s the only thing that makes sense. And as much as I don’t want to hurt the cats I think it’s necessary.

We finally got our marriage license!! I STILL can’t change my name because I want to get my taxes done first but then AFTERWARDS I’ll finally do it. Yay to that!

Anyway, that’s about all. Survey time =-)
