“Why hello there mom, whatcha doing?”
“Oh, you’re knitting sumfing (as usual)
oops, I mean, that’s neat mom, great job on the… thingy!”
“I’ll just sit next to you and quietly do my laundry.”
elsewhere, in another part of the house…
“Do not worry family. I will find you!”
“Steve! You were lost and I found you. Where are you going Steve?
I shall come too so you are not alone.”
” Aah! Personal space, you #$*@ mutt!”
“What is wrong, Steven? You seem angry.”
“Grandma, something is wrong with my favorite best friend, Steven! I see that you are knitting me a new toy!”
“Oh look! It is my Auntie A, she is my favorite. Auntie A., you were lost, but now I found you!”
You may have noticed that Thor has had a haircut since last week. He seems to enjoy his new do, especially now that we don’t have to constantly brush his hair. He is still smaller than the kitties, and now that he’s 6 months old I don’t think that he’ll get much bigger. The house-selling paperwork is completed and signs go up this week. We’re crossing our fingers for a quick sale. The realtor is optimistic. My amazing co-workers have done so much to help us out that I’m overwhelmed. We are all much-relieved at our decision to downsize, even though there is lots of work ahead.
For my friends and family who have not seen this on Facebook, here is a copy of one of A2’s “doodles” she did in class last week. We shall not discuss her grades, that is another issue unto itself.
