Quick Cat Comedy / Feline Funnies: Since our bathroom has dual sinks, Big Asia likes to jump into the right one & “drink out of a fountain” ~ the other day, I turned on the left faucet & noticed her trying to sip from the right! {repping our *Dallas Cowboys* by sporting my TS dress from my fellow cat ♥lover’s collection + headband, earrings & paraband from my speech student‘s son + St. Benedict scapular jewelry from my blessed bestie}

After receiving more precipitation at the ½way point this year following our previous full year’s totals, I wonder how much we’ll get next season?

Now that football season has kicked off, this sports spirituality book will do just the trick to keep my soul on a roll while I keep working on my own sports study (been investing 12-15h/day on it lately ~ ’til this weekend so I could focus on my Church readings)!

Have you ever felt that way when you had something important to face?

I most recently experienced this anxiety this morning, as I planned to close my doctoral survey this weekend to run my statistics and start analyzing my results for my dissertation. When I was about to pray the Rosary (Joyful Mysteries on which to meditate today on Saturday), I tried to calm my overwhelming sense of a ton of bricks falling on me and my sudden urge to purge those aforementioned bricks…

Then Angelic Annie approached me and snuggled up against my right side!

Angelic Annie

Face of an Angel: To the ♫tune♪ of Hinder’s Lips of an Angel♫

Therefore, she most certainly is my Right-Hand Cat!

PURRfect Annie

Although Annie‘s not verbal, she’s most definitely vocal!

As I prayed, she purred!

During times like these, I’ve previously turned to other people who I’ve trusted or terminal degree grads, but I don’t want to burden anyone, even if they’ve joined #TeamDrDISPO … This time, I’ve reflected back on similar situations when I’ve overcome this apprehension:

At this point, I must allow my go-getter attitude to prevail, as it’s led me to what I consider the greatest feeling:

A sense of

  • Accomplishment
  • Achievement
  • Completion

Based on

  • Ambitions
  • Aspirations
  • Confidence

Here’s Angel Annie‘s and my theme song ~ ♪I Can Only Imagine♫ ~ by ♫Mercy Me♪, who performed in the Valley the weekend when she found me/I rescued her!

By the time I hit the BiG 🎉3-3🎊, I figured that I’d already be a mommy!



Although I don’t have children of my own (yet), I’m still blessed to have my PURRfect 🐯A&A🐱 angels😻.



GOD’s gifts always grace me with their presence, for which I’m forever grateful.



Enjoy your weekend!!!

Happy Birthday to my PAPA PED!

Here are fun photos of my big girl Asia in the backyard and her lil’ sis Annie from three weeks ago before I took off on work assignment. I’ll miss my Double A-Team again when I go on work assignment next month.
