Calorie count

This morning while giving my oldest cat her treat, I noticed these words on the front of the package: 2 calories per piece. WHAT?! Why does it matter how many calories are in my cat's treat? Has our obsession with diet, shape, fat and calories found its way to pet food?

I understand our pets need a health diet. I make sure my cats (I have two) get the necessary nutrients and water. My oldest cat, Boots, seems to do very well in eating proper amounts of food. My little one the other hand (four month old kitty, Sugar) will eat anything in sight! Of course, she is growing everyday and needs the extra food.

I just don't know why I need to know the caloric intake for the cat treats!

Prayer request

Geneva, a close family friend, fell last night and broke her hip. Geneva is getting up there in years and suffers from Alzheimer. My grandma Smith passed away before any of us kids were born and grandpa Smith has been a close friend with Geneva my whole life. So, Geneva is somewhat of a grandma to me.

She is having surgery this morning. Grandpa Smith is worried about her being put under because of heart issues. Please pray for wisdom on the doctors part, peace for the family members and healing for Geneva.

Requested by Mandy

Mandy will definitely comment about that title. I'm writing this blog at this exact moment because a friend told me to update my blog. I agree, it's time for an update.

For those of you in Nashville, have you been inside the Parthenon? In my book, it's a must! For those of you who live elsewhere, Nashville has an exact replica of the Parthenon in Athens. Inside is a statue of Athena...and the only word that comes to mind is breathtaking. And I mean breathtaking in a literally sense, my breath escaped me for a second.

I'm on my way home to Kentucky when I leave work. Mom's birthday is Sunday and she is so excited for me to come in. On Saturday night, my two brothers and I plan to watch The Bourne Ultimatium. It is a rare thing when I want to see a movie that both my brothers would want to watch. Here a picture of my dad and youngest brother, Steve, and my mom.

The next two pictures are of a cousin on my mom's side, Suzanne and me with her son, Noah. Isn't he just adorable?! These were taken on Father's Day weekend. They were in town the same time I was, which is rare. It was so good to see them.

That's all for now, have to get back to work!
