and i shall call her jenny

All my bags are packed
I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin'
It's early morn
The taxi's waitin'
He's blowin' his horn
Already
I'm so lonesome
I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
'cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
Ev'ry place I go, I'll think of you
Ev'ry song I sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back, I'll bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
'cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again

Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time
Let me kiss you
Then close your eyes
I'll be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times, I won't have to say

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
'cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don’t know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But, I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Words and music by john denver




there - i release this song, from playing over and over in my mind. and i now, give it to you. mwuaha ha ha enjoy :)

my life-long friend, ramona, had a cat- jennifer.. for as long as i can remember, and i've known her for at least 26 years. jennifer went to cat heaven a few months ago. she was a black cat with white tuxedo markings. my friend misses her very much.
we just got a kitty. she is black and white and i shall call her jenny. so dang cute and she attacks everything that looks like it might move. totally cracks me up. my arms and legs are all scratched up from her endless clawing.

it's pretty safe to say, my big, fat and old cat, rooster, thinks she is here as punishment. little jenny is not at all afraid of the great dane, josh, or my aussie, sally. why? is the question. why - would any person in their right mind have 4 animals? because i was tired of the children whining... "why does so-and-so not have to feed one.... it's my turn to not have to feed a pet" problem solved. 4 kids, 4 pets. now they all have the responsibility of feeding one. except now the fight is for who gets to feed jenny. go figure

i was SO completely looking forward to this summer and hanging out with my kidlets, playing soccer and baseball and jumping on the trampoline --- OMG! they are seriously trying to kill each other. i literally had to pull one off another this morning. the amount of fighting that is going on amongst them is insane! truly nuts! i had to send them all to their rooms yesterday just to have a moment of peace for myself. they fight all day and then at night beg, plead, cry and yes, even shed tears to be able to sleep in each other's rooms. can someone please explain this to me?

when hubby got in from work he took them all to the park for an hour. i love my man! while they were away, i sat quitely and crocheted. i'm working on a design (hopefully) for the next Crochet me.

i have taken elizabeth's advice, and have cast on for a real project.. not just a dishcloth. i'll post pictures as it grows.

'cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again

he he he heee

I love your kitty, very cute! I am also jealous of the quiet time, sounds great!

That song has been stuck in my head MANY a time. My ex's brother broke out into it in a resteraunt once, and since then, it's been firmly plastered into my memory in his voice.

Your kitten is SO cute! I love kitties.

Stacey said...

What a sweet kitten!

I love that song, so I don't mind having it in my head :)

Tori said...

Jenny is a cutie! You are bad! Now I'll have to think of a really anoying song to get this song out of my head ;-). A friend of mine and I used to do this to each other. We each knew a song the other didn't like and would mention it sometimes to bug each other.

My theory? Let the children kill each other. It will make the grocery bill cheaper. But my question? Will you then start getting rid of pets too? ;)

love ya,
sister
