Some people have wondered about how the cats and kids are getting along. In general, cats and kids ignore each other. The kids get startled by the cats because they are so, well, cat-like and stealthy. They've developed an irrational fear of Rico. "Yaaaaah, black cat, mommy, black cat!" Then Rico freaks out and runs under the bed.
I think our cats are a little depressed. They were used to all our attention and our laps all the time. Murray just looks sadly at us as we walk by. :( Today I went into the bathroom with Murray just so I could pet him. (The kids are really good about not barging in when you're in the bathroom.) Anyway, Murray just purred and purred and rubbed. My poor little kitten.
Bedtime is the cats' favorite time. They're all over us.
We saw Sibbie being carried by Habtamu. I said to Lee "I'm surprised she's submitting to that." Then Lee and I said at the same time "She must be desperate."
I escaped, I mean went to the store this afternoon. I was starting to lose my sanity around the edges. I had a Almond Joy in the car. Alone. Not to be sacrilegious, but I think I saw the face of God while I ate it.
