There's no place like home...There's no place like home....
For about 20 years, no matter how many times I clicked my heels together and said these supposedly magical words, nothing happened. I was stuck in a place that I really didn't like, and I longed to go home, to my little hometown in NE Ohio.I was fed up with the high cost of living, the overcrowding, and the general unfriendliness of the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
With rents that are sky-high and barely being able to make ends meet with a growing family, I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I would probably have to raise my children in an area that I absolutely despised. Sure, the NOVA area has it's perks, but it's not somewhere I would choose to raise a family. I longed for quiet, suburban streets, a sense of community, and loads of family-friendly events and activities. I much prefer small town living to the hustle and bustle of the big city, and I wanted to give my kids a childhood reminiscent of my own.
Everything changed after my oldest son started getting bullied for his sexual orientation. He was terrorized daily, and even physically assaulted. Despite numerous visits to the school, nothing was being done to protect him. I watched my child become very depressed, and it scared me. I did not want him to become another sad statistic, so I knew something had to be done. Kyle deserved a fresh start, somewhere that he could finally feel safe.
My husband and I started planning. We decided that the best thing we could do for our son and our family in general was to leave Virginia behind once and for all. We did a lot of research regarding job opportunities, housing costs, and general cost of living here in NE Ohio. We found that moving to my little hometown was not only doable, it would allow us to live a much more comfortable life.
Thanks so smart financial planning and the help of an inheritance, we were able to purchase our home in full. My house is almost 100 years old, and is full of charm and character. It is also in need of some serious updating. But it is located in the only city I would ever want to raise my children in, and it's 100% OURS. It felt SO good when we were able to move into a home of our own.
Of course now, we have to save and plan for home renovations. Instead of calling it our "Rainy Day Fund", which sounds completely negative, we call our savings plan our "Sunny Day Fund." After all, we want to live for the sunny days in our new home. Sure, it may take years before our house is completely and totally renovated to our tastes, but we want to enjoy every moment of the process.
So far, we've been able to do little things, like refinishing our countertops and customizing the kids' rooms with wall decals, etc. We haven't gotten to anything major, like bathroom renovations or newer flooring, but one day we will. They always say, after all, that nothing worth having comes easily. If we are diligent in saving for our home improvements, they WILL start becoming reality, little bits at a time.
Since we are choosing to think about our long term goals in a positive light, saving to make them a reality seems a bit less painful. Rather than think about the tens of thousands of dollars it will cost to update our home, we think about how wonderful it feels to have a home to call our own, and how we are giving our kids the security of a place they can always come back to. We focus on the Sunny Days, and work towards making these days even brighter.

***Disclosure: This post was made possible by 9Lives. As always, all opinions are my own.***
Morris the Cat is known throughout the world as the star of over fifty 9Lives cat food commercials from the 1970s up through today. He gained even greater notoriety when he became an advo-cat for kitty adoptions with his “Million Cat Rescue” initiative, and just this year, he took a trip to South by Southwest as a feline technology correspondent.
It seems America’s favorite ‘charmingly choosy’ feline is always on the go, but I recently had the chance to catch up with him to talk show biz, naps, and how he’s giving back through his new effort called ‘Live Well & Prospurr.’
You’ve been a TV star since the 1970s and yet you look as vivacious as ever. How do you keep your youthful glow?
People ask me all the time if I’ve had work done. But in fact, my whiskers stay perky thanks to a disciplined regimen of napping, sleeping, napping some more, eating (9Lives, of course), and just generally hanging out. I want to emphasize this last one because even though it’s categorically important for our health and happiness, it’s also the easiest to forget as we go about our busy lives. That’s why I developed my Official Guide to Relaxing, Chillin’, Unwinding & More. (I had to take some time away from hanging out to write it, but I hope you’ll agree it was well worth it.)
Are humans allowed to know what’s in this guide or is it for felines only?
Oh no, the guide was written for all species, both two- and four-legged. And let’s face it, cats are pretty good at hanging out already. I know relaxing can be daunting—what with work, kids, errands, and chores—but that’s why I created the 5 levels of hanging out. Even the most stressed out person can master Level 1: Kicking Back. Then, as people get more comfortable with the idea of just relaxing, they can move on to the higher levels and ultimately achieve what I like to call Prospurr.
How does someone know when they’ve achieved Prospurr?
Excellent question, Brandy. Prospurr is the Holy Grail of hanging out. It’s not so much an action as a state of mind, but purr-haps I could describe it best like this: It’s like the moment you flop onto the couch after a hard day, mixed with the tingling sensation of getting scratched behind the ears, rolled into the drool-inducing taste of a bowl of 9Lives. You humans out there probably haven’t tried 9Lives, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one. For more tips on hanging out, go to this website that I built with my own four paws: http://prospurr.9lives.com/
I know working in show biz can mean very long hours. How do you keep to your hangout regimen while you’re on set?
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Just like Brad Pitt or Liam Hemsworth, I have a stand-in who sets up all my shots for me. That way I can rest in my trailer—ahem, carrying case—until the cameras start rolling. My stand-in is polyester and has a tag that says “Made in the USA,” but he does the trick. All I have to do is show up and look handsome… which is easy since I’ve spent the whole day getting my beauty rest.
Certainly the entertainment industry, and the world in general, has changed a lot since the 1970s. How do you keep up with the times?
I chase the times like a red-laser dot, and I’m always on the lookout for cool new tech gadgets that help cats and humans live well. One of my new favorites is the Apple Watch—it lets me track how much time I spend ‘napping’ versus the time I spend ‘sleeping.’ AND, today it told me that I took 19 steps going from my bed to my food dish—nothing like working up a sweat before a big meal.
What is the best advice you could give to someone who wants to live a better life?
Watch cat videos! A recent study conducted by some really smart people at Indiana University found that after watching a clip of Lil Bub, Nora the Piano Cat or of course, yours truly, participants felt increased levels of joy and energy. Science doesn’t lie, people! Bonus points if you watch said cat videos curled up in bed or on a fluffy couch.
If a cat watches cat videos, does it have the same effect?
Yes—in fact, the effect is multiplied. It’s like topping 9Lives Super Supper with even more 9Lives Super Supper. Some days I’ll watch cat videos the entire four hours I’m awake.
It seems like you’ve got a pretty nice life, Morris.
I’m very lucky, but to me, being a celebricat isn’t about paw-ty hopping or head-booping Hollywood royalty. It’s about enjoying the simple pleasures that let me live well—and helping others to do the same. You may not know this but I was actually a rescue cat in Chicago before I was ‘discovered.’ This year, with your support, I’m donating a million meals to the ASPCA. Every time you tweet using #MorrisFeeds I’ll donate a bowl of 9Lives to a kitty in need. And I haven’t forgotten about my human fans: Go to http://prospurr.9lives.com/ for a chance to win $300 towards a relaxing getaway… You deserve it!
