So what are you going to do for four weeks?

This is the question that everyone is asking everyone at the gym. It did occur to me this morning that we might lose some regulars and that would be sad. But, now that the shock has passed, I'm fine with it. I'll sleep in. Maybe I'll just walk instead (ugh). I will have to get re-acquainted with the shower in my own bathroom. I use it maybe a couple of times a year and now it will be my only option. The kittens will be fascinated.

The kittens have taken to sleeping side by side by my face. Something of theirs must be touching the other one or me. One lies on my arm and the other one next to him. Or there's a cat butt on my face and one on my shoulder. They groom each other and/or often get up, reposition, and settle back, still touching. I love it.

Today, I'll be leaving them alone with the house cleaner. This should be interesting. I'm sure they will all be fine.


I don't have a lot of must do errands today. So while the house cleaner cleans, I'll probably wander through Goodwill and then hit up Grocery Outlet (both places nearby and easy). And then use up any extra time just reading my book in the car until she's done.


Biggie, he stick me like glue

I was on the way back to the car to head home when I got the email that my Nest cams were out. I knew instantly what had happened. I had left the A/C on and the house cleaner's vacuum which could suck the white off rice, had tripped the breaker. I knew she'd be upset but also she'd be at the neighbors so I could tell her it was fine.

Normally when I open the door, I come in and holler out to the boys. The Smalls then tentatively pokes his head out around from the bedroom. Sometimes Biggie doesn't come out at all.

Today when I opened the door, they both came bounding down the hallway from the living room - soooooo excited! I think they were trying to tell me all about Amira, the house cleaner.

I got the electricity on again and then went across the hall to tell her not to worry. She was upset but I explained it was my fault and I would not let it happen again. And then she went on to tell me about the cats.

Apparently, whatever she did and where ever she went in the house, Biggie went with her. Right there to help. The Smalls did, too. "Cats no like this vacuum ever! but yours???!" She said Biggie tried to ride it and The Smalls thought the cord was a toy.

They are still riled up. I had tried to tire them out with a rousing Stickie session before I left. They are not tired at all. They may fall into a coma any minute but right now they are playing Hallway Raceway.

These two are just too much.
