The Older I Get, I Need to Be Still

Picture with quote about doing nothing the older I get

Good evening everyone.

Moments of clarity come when you least expect them. I work with young children, so those moments often come at school. When I returned from winter break, my students had many questions about my vacation. They would ask me what I did or where I traveled. (The students I work with have traveled frequently and visited locations I have only experienced as an adult. Their normal is traveling during vacation breaks.) My answer would always be: 

  1. I did nothing;
  2. I traveled to [my hometown].

One Cat Household: New Cat

my new cat Mozeley two cat householdWell, I gave in to the urge to add a new cat to the house. As I said in my previous post, my sleep was suffering from having just one cat. I was focussing on the monetary benefits of a single cat household. It was nice to pay less for litter, food, and pet insurance.  However, I have always owned two cats at a time. So, this was a challenge for me.

After two months of interrupted sleep, we are now a two cat household again. (Thank you!)

I have finally found my Black cat, Mozeley, who is a “love bug” and meows for me to pick him up for cuddling. He even tries to climb up my back as I am washing dishes (scared the hell out of me the first time).

Anyone who owns a cat understands that cats can be aloof and unaffectionate. Mozeley’s love of human affection is like a well-fitted bra (as a size DDD, a fitted bra is better than gold). As much as I love his affection, he serves a bigger purpose: he helps Shinxley (2.5 years and 2.5 pounds fatter) to live an active life. 

It is also nice to come home to 2 sets of bright eyes at the top of my stairs each day.
