I know it, I know it! – Those are the words most often heard during Jeopardy in our house. Our problem is that we can’t pull the answer from our brain’s data bank fast enough. We are big fans but I swear the questions have been getting progressively harder over the years. I love it when I can impress the beloved husband with an obscure piece of knowledge that is utterly useless. Sometimes he surprises me.
Argh! – We have four cats (no, I don’t know how that happened. One day there were two and then there were four). Lots of poop. Although the litter boxes get scooped twice daily (yes twice) they get thoroughly cleaned several times a year. I take them outside; give them a thorough cleaning with disinfectant; and let the sun dry them. This was the week for it. Unfortunately, all that bending (combined with planting pachysandra the day before) made my back unhappy.
No deer – I had a lot of day lilies in my yard. Unfortunately the deer love them, especially the red ones. After years of weeding them and caring for them with no blooms, I pulled them all out and gave them away. I was able to make two people happy. I am not quite as happy….
Season finales – I hate them! Even the programs I like use convoluted, unrealistic plots for their season finale occasionally with stupid cliffhangers. It’s also when they kill off the actors who want out or didn’t renew. On Gray’s Anatomy a few years ago we lost Dr. McSteamy. This week we lost Dr. McDreamy. There are no cute terms for the remaining doctors. So sad.
General cat update – Morgan who is going on three years later this summer and has been with us for two years still acts like a six-week old kitten. She continues to (kindly) torment the other three, then runs away singing, “Na na na na na!” Of course I have seen the others chase her so I’m not worried. Jake will correct her with a (gentle) bop on the head. She goes to the vet this month for her annual. It’s a chance for me to ask why she still chews things she shouldn’t and why she grinds her teeth. Maybe she needs braces?
So how was your week?
