I suppose I can’t complain too much. In the winter, she’d sit across my laptop because the heat emanating from the keyboard kept her furry little self warm. Ahhh….sweet. NO! Try getting cat hair and dander out of your laptop keys. So, as much as I love my kitty (and I do – very much) I would like to see her find another place to lie. You know, like the cat bed we made for her in the office so she wouldn’t have to sit on the desk.
On another note: A couple of days ago, we took a road trip for the purpose of dropping off our two pride and joys with their grandparents for a couple of weeks of fun in the “land of yes” before summer ends.
Plan: drive 4 hours with kids to meet in-laws at restaurant for lunch; eat lunch; drive 4 hours without kids back to the homestead.
The kids live for this time as they adore their grandparents. A blessing I do not take likely. So, the day of the trip they were up, dressed and in the car before our coffee had time to seep into our bloodstreams.
We hit the road running and made it through the first leg of the trip without incident. Get to the restaurant, order food, sit down, look at my son and think “Wow, you don’t look so good.”
About a minute later, son vomits all over table.
Yep, keeping it real!
So, today is Elul 1, 5770 on the Hebrew calendar and at sundown the season of Teshuvah begins. Look for a post this week detailing what this season entails.
PS – our son is fine and the land of yes is in full gear.
