Home Alone

Cristian and I went away over the weekend (but really for only the one night so I’m not sure it even counts as “weekend”) and left the Wheezies alone in the new house for the first time ever. Cristian asked, “Think they’ll have any food left?” My parents’ cat, Daisy, used to eat all of … Continue reading

14 Hour Absence

I’m liking my new job but I’m having trouble with the part where I’m away from the house for about 14 hours a day. I went from an abundance of time for housework and kittysnuggles to about half an hour in the morning and maybe an hour at night. That’s gonna take some gettin’ used … Continue reading

I was so ready yesterday with my flashlights and books to read and turning off my computer “just in case” and then… it just never happened. For which, by the way, I am … Continue reading

Hurricane Prep

    Well, the Wheezies have taken the news of an impending hurricane about as well as I expected:   But even though Mommy didn’t have to go to work this morning, conditions still aren’t that bad. We still have power so… that’s cool. And did we mention, Mommy didn’t have to go to work … Continue reading
