In other news, the kitten has come into her own and decided that she has the run of the house. Until this week she's shied away from anything that appeared to be off limits to her. But not any more. I can't tell you how many times I've come into the room to see her sauntering across the kitchen table (with the SAME claws she just walked through her litter box in, mind you). Yesterday she ran in the bathroom and hopped on the open toilet as it was IN USE. She thinks the bathroom sink is her personal fountain. This morning she tried to climb in the tub with me. An hour ago she weaseled her way through the closed basement door to explore the flood zone. Right now she is curled in a ball sleeping on the same chair that I'M sitting on...I, for some reason, am perched on the very end so that she has enough room. WHAT ON EARTH!?!
I've decided to take back the control she somehow thinks she's gained. She can't tell me what to do or how it's going to be. She's a CAT for goodness sake, not my mom, my boss, or my child. I don't have to listen OR put up with it. Lucky for her, Emma loves her more than I do...

I'm sitting here too...in a comfy bright chair...waiting...just waiting. But apparently the word for the day is:
"STOP, I'm not ready yet...I'll let you know what you need to know WHEN you need to know. But not today. Just sit still and enjoy the comfy chair for now."
"Maybe tomorrow...just open your eyes!"
"Stop moping about feeling in over your head...like you feel like you're being punished or put on a time-out..."
"Your time IS coming...and you won't even need to wear rose-colored glasses
to see how good it is.

Annual "first day of school picture"
Now it's dinner time and I'm unprepared. I have no excuses AT ALL! Can't think of one....maybe a pizza night?
