As always, our hosts gave us some fun fill-ins with which to work this week.
1. The oldest item in my home is _________.
2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is _________.
3. My family heritage is _________.
4. My favorite family tradition is _________.
I won't lie, I really had to think on these. That's okay, though, because it's always good to put that brain up there to work!
1. The oldest item in my home is an 1892 edition of The Scarlet Letter.
(I have a thing for books, including old books. To the best of my knowledge, this is the oldest one I have. I believe the next oldest is an 1896 edition of Robinson Crusoe. I have inherited some books from grandparents and great-grandparents, as well as found some real gems at garage sales. Like I said, I have a thing for books.)
2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is a 6-pack of Sprite.
(I essentially never drink pop and only keep it on hand in the case of a stomach bug, as Sprite can help soothe that. The last time I had a stomach bug was about a year ago, and the Sprite currently in my refrigerator is an unopened pack that my awesome mom ran out and got me as backup then. It's all unopened, and so I've just been keeping it in there, just in case.)
3. My family heritage is largely German.
(My mom's family is 100% German. My dad is 50% German, with the rest being a mix of Irish and other European descent. So, I'm 75% German and 25% mutt. Nothing too exciting, but I'm proud of my heritage nonetheless.)
4. My favorite family tradition is Sunday dinner.
(My parents, my sister, and myself all always have Sunday dinner together. We'll take turns preparing and hosting it, and since I love to bake, I always make a dessert. We'll put on a movie, pick a show to watch together, and of course give some love to each other's furbabies!)
So, what's up next? Oh, that's right. Eddy! Today, Eddy wanted to show off how she loves to keep her big brother Evan company.
She gets so excited when Evan settles down for a snooze on the bed.
Eddy will always sidle up next to Evan. Now, this usually results in something along the lines of a big ol' hug, which then turns into a bunny kicking battle. The problem, though? Despite his manly strength, since Evan is hind limb paralyzed, there isn't much chance of him winning the bunny kicking battle. That's when the referee (aka, the Mom) has to step in and give a certain little lady cat a tiny little lecture on playing fair. That referee sure is a buzzkill.
Eddy wants to know if any of her furiends out there ever get the speech about playing fair? Oh, and of course she also wants to know who out there is a master bunny kicker like her?
Well, we'll get off the topic of bunny kicking, at least until Easter. Today, we want to wish everybuddy a fun, festive, and safe St. Patrick's Day!

Our Tip of the Day:
We recently gave some St. Patrick's Day tips, such as keeping your furbabies clear of toxic clovers and alcohol, as well as minding the dangers of green hair dyes and those festive beaded necklaces. We haven't run out of St. Patrick's Day tips yet, though, so we'll add a couple more today. If you live somewhere that hosts a St. Patrick's Day parade or other similarly loud festivities, do be sure to ensure your furbaby's safety and comfort. Keep windows closed to keep out raucous noise, or even turn on the radio or television to help drown out any disconcerting sounds. Be careful to monitor the door and to keep your furbaby away from it, especially if any festivities are taking place inside or outside of the home. Though Irish tradition is not all about drinking, we all know that many people do turn this holiday into that, so please be careful when out on the roads today, whether you're by yourself or driving with your furbaby. This is also another good reason to be monitor your door and keep your furbabies safe and sound inside today, as there may be increased hazards out there on the roads on days like St. Patrick's Day. Do have fun, but also be safe!
