Princess: What does meme mean anyway?
See how hip we are?.... not. hey we are from the 90's kitties (prehistoric almost)
Well, we were tagged by Willow for the latest thingie going around and we are going to try to give it a go here: Boy, this was a toughie!
How Do you Achieve Balance in Your Life?
Princess: Here are the major things that require balancing:
upstairs and downstairs,
napping together, napping separately,
getting into things, leaving things be,
eating, snacking, nibbling.
drinking from the sink, the shower room, the various bowls,
playing with our old boring toys, or stealing socks, chewing on plants or plastic
on top or burrowing
when and where to groom
groom yourself, or help eachother
and finally making full use of the two litter boxes.
Caesar and I achieve these things on a daily basis by communicating and keeping checklists to ensure that all major requirements are covered daily (I am a lists kind of kittygirl).
I also have a very good sense of time, so I know when things need to be accomplished.
Caesar is a great teamplayer. we work together to accomplish these simple life enhancing priorities.
What is your biggest challenge in balancing your life?:
Caesar: well, basikly, our biggest challenge is mommie and daddie. They are pretty erratic and completely unpredictable!!! Princess: agreed
What are your Priorities?:
Caesar: My priorities all depend on mood, same with Prinnie. If we are in the mood for something we go for it without a second thought. You never know what happens in the future so you have to go with the present, or next thing you know, while you are simply tossing the idea of a snack in your head, suddenly you hear doors slam and then just like that, the peepul are no where to be found!
Princess: One thing we learned from gramma and grampa... if you have the desire and the energy, then do the thing you want to do. You might wake up dead tomorrow. For instance, gramma and grampa eat cookies as if they might die tomorrow (like 20 bajillionsquillion a day, in all styles, shapes and flavors)! >click on this one to biggify the cookie nibblers in action!!<
How have your priorities changed over the time and why?:
Princess: Wow, this is a great question. Of course things have changed! A lot has changed here in the past 15 and a half years. We are older and a lot wiser. Caesar and I work pretty closely together on this. We have our set plan every day and try to make the rounds every hour or so. Our priorities are fresh water, a variety of snacks, clean, cozy environment, and for me, selective petting, Caesar is a lot more liberal with the touching. I am not too interested in lap time... mommie is too fidgety, daddie is very warm, I prefer his lap. Caesar loves mommie, but he is much more easy going, he is also a glutton for praise. I miss Blizzie. She really was my girl and I used to spend all of my time with her... so it has been a huge adjustment for me since she went to kollig. I would say this has been a year of changes and I particularly feel as though I am still adjusting and I am not sure what my priorities are. When we were younger, we were like wild monkeys and if we could dream it we did it... (once, I climbed up the insulation in the basement, and got behind it, that was great fun until mommie cut me out. Caesar was the jumper, nothing was impossible, using the stairs was for sissies. He used to get in the pantry and chew boxes of food open and eat it, didn't matter what it was). But now life is different, really different. We are not so busy investigating and inspecting everything every day.
Caesar: mommie did not go to kollig and I am happy about that, because if she did, I would be peeing everywhere!
What advice can you share to help all of us balance our own lives?:
Caesar and Princess: State your desires. Purr often. Appreciate the little things. Be patient and tolerant. Always give unconditional love to the beans.
We hope this was fun to read and somewhat helpful!
I blindfolded myself and picked these 5 names out of an olde easter bonnet of Blizzies:
