I was wondering how on earth you move with an outdoor cat. In our current home, we leave the window open and she comes and goes as she pleases. However, we're looking to move to an apartment about four hours away. She doesn't adapt to change well (was hoping to somehow have her asleep during the drive), but I know that a lot of outdoor cats try and find their way back to their old home. We were thinking of transitioning her to an indoor cat, at least for a while, but she's never even used a litter box before. When, if ever, will it be okay to let her out again?
My husband and I moved into our first home in October 2012, and we only bought FOUR things to decorate it. Almost all our furniture and housewares were either wedding presents, bought with wedding money or we already owned. We feel like our home has a "found object" look that some people strive for.
The only good thing about getting sick is that my husband always makes me this awesome celery soup. I can make a mean soup from scratch (it's kind of my thing) but nothing compares to his magical sickness fixing celery soup. It sounds odd, looks kind of gross and has the consistency of applesauce but it tastes amazing.
In today's society, with its emphasis on performance, it's so easy to feel pressured to be the best. Things aren't worth doing unless you can do them perfectly. But I call bullshit on that. Here's how my ukulele helped me get over the pressure to be "the best" and just have fun with the things I love to do.
I recently received a beautiful page-a-day type diary as a gift. My problem is that I no longer need a physical diary to keep track of my schedule; Google calendar and my phone take care of this. I'd love to see what creative ideas can you Offbeat Homies come up with as alternatives uses for a yearly diary.
I know some big kids, aka supposed grown-ups, who will be high-tailing it to the hardware store to get s'more supplies for these marshmallow shooters. (Ha! See what I did there?) Then your advanced marshmallow weaponry is easy to load and laughter-inducing to unload. Find out how to make your very own marshmallow arsenal…
