Wednesday Wishes

This is Wednesday leaning out of her cat tree. She may look like just your average gray tabby cat, but she has many skills. Most of these skills, she uses for The Good. Okay, 'most' might be a slight exaggeration. Wednesday is a good little kitty, though, at heart. She loves her family, loves her sisters, loves annoying those sisters and she also loves to grant wishes. Every Wednesday morning, I will rub the side of the cat house and summon our magic cat!

My Wednesday Wishes for the week:

1)  No Hiatus - When I worked in television, I loved my two months off.  It was so nice to be able to catch up with friends, travel to see family.  I cherished that time.  Now that I'm not in the industry anymore, I understand why my own family used to whine to me about no episodes until the Fall.  I'm starting to get it now.  Two of my fave shows - The Walking Dead and...ahem, I won't mention the other one but Monday night A was revealed (don't judge me!) - are done for the season.  No new episodes until Fall.  I'm trying to focus on what I have to look forward to (True Blood).  Can anyone suggest some shows on DVD?  I'll have to content myself with those and hope the months fly by!

2)  Laundry Elf - If I could just have him do the laundry, I promise that I wouldn't make him do anything else.  A lot of it is my own fault.  I have animals and my cats shed like crazy.  I have friends that tend to stop by without announcing that they are coming.  So my furniture stays covered - this way when the doorbell rings, I can shout "Just a minute!" while I race around and pull the covers off.  Fresh furniture shed-free!  But the covers have to be washed twice a week.  Okay, they don't have to be.  I want them to be.  I like fresh covers to sit on.  Luckily, Lily doesn't shed.  But Wednesday and Pip, both short hair cats, can get up and it looks like they are still there!  Since cats are my worst allergy, I have to stay on top of it.  Just washing covers is three loads of laundry.  Add that to my other laundry (bed stuff, guest bed stuff, clothes) and I do a lot of laundry.  I start out all gung-ho like I did this morning, but I guarantee I'll forget about the last two loads tonight (I rarely remember) so there will be wrinkled clothes in the dryer and soggy clothes in the washer.  Oh - and I hate folding.  It's sooooooo boring.  Could there be anything more boring on earth than folding laundry?  I don't think so.  So Laundry Elf to do that laundry AND fold it all in the same day!

3)  Sweet & Sara Marshmallows - I have been searching high and low for a vegan marshmallow that comes close to real ones for my baking and snaking needs.  So far, no luck.  BUT a few people have told me that they swear by Sweet & Sara Marshmallows.  My Whole Foods carries them and can't seem to keep them on the shelf so that's a great sign!  But, did I mention that they can't keep them on the shelf?  Yeah.  Bummer.  It seems the more you can't find something, the more you want it!  I'm craving them something bad (maybe it's a good thing they are out of stock!).  I'm rubbing Wednesday's cat tree before I head out this morning.  Wednesday should be a lucky day, right?

What about you - what are your wishes for our magical cat?


  1. Oh my goodness, that Pretty Little Liars episode was crazy! I love that show without shame. :) You should try Vampire Diaries if you haven't already!

  2. A vegan marshmallow? What animal is in marshmallows?

  3. Oh my gosh, I didn't make any wishes this week! I guess because one of them is kind of coming true anyways. BUT I wish for you to get better and remain healthy for the rest of the year. Hopefully Wednesday is okay granting wishes on a Friday.
