I apologize for my absence recently. I was really in the flow of blogging and had a great schedule going, but of course, life got in the way.
There’s a great concept I heard from one of my 7 Habits trainings that has been on my mind the past few weeks: Remember, it’s not that there’s never enough time. There’s always the same amount of time. And we’re choosing what to do with it.
Well, recently, I’ve been choosing to stay busy: I took some time to visit friends and family, worked on improving my house, and took a little time for myself. Therefore, blogging has been put on the back burner. And that’s ok.
I have some fun stuff coming up but wanted to quickly share the new addition to our family.
This is Oberon
Let me give you a little background. Just over a year ago, I got my own kitten to celebrate my first “adult” job. I wanted to make sure I had a stable income before inviting a kitten into my home, and I’m glad I did.
Recently, Elliot and I had been discussing getting a little brother for my first kitten, Mylo. I honestly didn’t see it happening for a while. But as it turns out, we stopped by a local animal shelter one rainy Saturday and couldn’t help but find a sweet little companion for Mylo.
There’s not much better than having a little kitten running around. I am so in love and even more in love with Oberon and Mylo together.
I also want to give a huge shoutout to Brother Wolf, the local animal shelter we adopted both of our kittens from. Aside from being a no kill shelter (which is so great) Brother Wolf goes above and beyond in making sure your pet is ready for a new home. Both Mylo and Obi were fixed and had all their updated shots when we got them. They also make sure you are ready for the responsibility of a new pet, including calling your landlord (which we were more than ok with).
I also heard recently that the shelter went to South Carolina to rescue animals in flooded areas. I can not say enough about this place.
Feel free to share any pictures of your sweet pets or your positive shelter experiences!
(For those curious, Oberon is one of Uranus’ moons. With his tabby grey appearance, it seemed to fit. Oberon is also mentioned in one of Elliot’s favorite Pink Floyd songs. Mylo’s spelling came from the Coldplay album “Mylo Xyloto”. I thought it was a unique twist on the classic Milo name. And I’m obsessed with Coldplay of course.)
