So, about Kitty. She turned three weeks old yesterday. She is growing at an astounding rate and every day I watch her hit another developmental milestone. Her ears are starting to stand up more, she can almost lift her fat belly off the ground to walk and just last night I saw her scratch her ear with her back leg for the first time. Her eyes are starting to look more like eyes and less like creepy black orbs and she’s finally starting to get teeth.
We have tentatively named her Kyra because it’s vaguely Irish and she’s a ginger sort of cat and because the meanings fit her little cat personality.
Her latest trick is chewing on her bottle after she’s full. We shot a video of it last night on my trusty iPhone and while it’s not the best quality, I think you get the point.

Oh, and itty bitty kitty playtime? Yeah. Basically the cutest thing ever.
In other, non-kitty related news, last weekend Andrew and I went to an Army-sponsored marriage retreat in Charlottesville, Va. We really didn’t know what to expect and where afraid it was going to be all hand holding and looking deep into each other eyes and reaffirming our love, but the first day was actually pretty hilarious. The presentation focused on how men and women just simply think differently and how learning to speak each other’s language can make for a healthier and happier marriage.
That night was prom and, lucky for us, prom was held at our hotel. We couldn’t get close enough to snap any decent photos but trust when I say there were a couple dozen train wrecks. Also, those bitches stole all the “Do Not Disturb” door tags on the entire 8th floor. NOT FUNNY WHEN YOU HAVE AN ILLEGAL KITTY IN YOUR ROOM!
Day two of the retreat was all about the sex.They told us pre-marital sex ruins men and women for marriage. They said women are “stupid” if they give it up before the wedding night and that men who engage in pre-marital sex are imprinted with those experiences and will be unable to enjoy sex as a married man.And then they said masturbation RUINS marriages and that men who masturbate will become unable to enjoy sex with their wives and that no one, in the history of the world, has ever orgasmed from self-love.
It was…odd. I just didn’t see it coming. I knew there would be sex talk, but the last thing I expected was an hour-long tirade against pre-marital sex and masturbation and I left feeling more pissed off than relaxed. Oh well. At least it was a free weekend away.
