49 hours – The new loveseat was in the house exactly 49 hours before I heard the first sounds of a cat getting ready to barf. Fortunately I was sitting next to her. (Squeamish readers should go to next item.) I put my hand under her mouth to catch it (I know! Even I couldn’t believe I did that!). It scattered onto the carpet and some magazines. That was a close call but it’s going to happen one of these days.
Holiday stink! – Just like a day-old fire in the fireplace, I am not fond of the day-old cooking smells still permeating the house. I had to bake brownies to get rid of it. (Poor me!) So much better. (Yes, I know a candle may have worked but have you ever tried eating a candle?)
Routines – It was a busy week. Most days my peaceful morning routine was thrown out the window to get something else done. I was surprised at how cranky I started to get. Fortunately Thanksgiving morning I was able to sit with my mocha in front of my computer and start the day in a leisurely manner. Equilibrium was restored.
Bad news – No holiday goes by without at least one piece of bad news. One of our grand cats passed away unexpectedly. It was the only cat (they also have two dogs) that lived with the granddaughters and it was devastating for all.
Bouncing back – Our football team had a really bad day on Thanksgiving (really bad). The guys were despondent but rallied. A little booze helps the hurt go away…at least for sports games.
So how was your week?
