Finding the Humor in Hairballs

I woke up early this morning (maybe it was the middle of the night?) shivering. As my sleepy self tried to wake up, I groped around looking for my blanket, and I realized that somehow the sheet and the comforter and the blanket had all gotten turned down, I was completely uncovered to my waist.

Brr! I pulled everything back up and snuggled down, and after a few minutes I was warm again and went back to sleep.

A couple of hours later the alarm went off, and I stood up and put my glasses on. I looked down at the bed, and saw... a big kitty puke hairball on my blanket, right above where I was sleeping!

So my cat vomited up a hairball ON ME while I was sleeping, then covered it up by pulling the covers down off of me.

Oh my goodness. Being barfed ON is so much worse than the dreaded getting-up-to-pee-and-stepping-in-puke-in-the-dark moment. I had honestly never considered that I would be puked UPON.

I had to laugh, standing there looking at my hairball-encrusted blanket. Ugh.

So in the spirit of laughing at my tragic misfortune, I happily accept the Lemonade Award!

This award was given to me by Deborah on her beautiful silk painting blog. She seems to think I have a positive attitude! :)

I love her blog. She writes about her silk painting artistry, and posts lovely pictures of her work. She is a big part of what inspired me to get back into silk painting, 10 years after having stopped. I love silk painting, and I love Deborah!

Ack, I do sound pretty positive... I am clearly losing my punk edge. I need to dig out my old Decline of the Western Civilization soundtrack.

I am nominating the lovely horror-stricken Marniekat to pass this Lemonade award on to. She is a loving wife and mother and makes beautiful jewelry, much of it horror inspired. I particularly love her Dexter pieces, and the Twilight necklace with the two red beads at the neck to symbolize blood drops from a vampire bite. :) Check out her Etsy store.

A kitty puke hairball necklace would be scarier, but I would totally not buy that, as I already have PLENTY.
