Well yes. Lol!! Just had to bring me back to reality, didn't you? Laundry... phfffttt!!

Send a Green Star to Just Carole
Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Just because you have done so within the last week.
Yeah, I sent one to Catman, too...

Just printed this out and the next time I'm in the mood for a calligraphy project, I know what to do. Has anyone learned how to stretch a 24 hour day into at least 36 hours or more? I seem to need more than one lifetime for my Care2 wanna-dos. Maybe that is why so many of us identify with cats... we will need 9 lives for all that needs to be done.

I have read it on Catman's page a while ago and was thinking that it was good not be alone. I have to get dressed earlier, I walk my dogs and people were looking at me weird when so me in my pajamas.
I am also on Facebook with other animals lovers and this takes time, most actions are long letters to email...
But I really like it. People do this and they are from different countries, so you learn more about them.

I think that the whole PC is addictive and I can't seem to stop even though I think that I had better do other things which are begging for attention. Great poem Catman. :)

Ha ha ha ha ha! Those are very good. I myself need to be less of a "mouse potato" and do stuff away from my computer. Maybe we're all trying to build up butterfly points so we can put them to good use, giving away school lunches, feeding homeless cats or planting trees.

Thanks for this post Carole, Catman for the 12 steps, and community for hilarious comments.

YES, I'LL GO TO REHAB... after I check my mail, read articles and comments, note posts, do some petitions, click to donate, send some mails and cards... and I have plenty good stories to post. Yes. I'll quit my care2 addiction one day, I promise. Now, go away. I HAVE THINGS TO DO!

I told my daughter that I have login info for care2 in my cell phone. I am mortal and if I die before am over you someone will have to post THAT story. So you'll know why I don't hang around any more.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some things to do...

Yes, Catman Purrfect, you're a wonderful friend; just who I needed, someone who is VERY conditional in a friendship. IF you believe in Karma, Bud, you are in trouble. Also, one last thing; you sure remind me of a kid in a candy shop with all these women here. 714 friends! You would think you you would find someone in 5 years, but what are you really looking for; besides telling the same stale, old jokes over & over?
