Yup I think the universe has really told me that I need to take care of myself because my little family needs me. I got the message.

  I’m actually really looking forward to cleaning the little kitty nose prints that form a line across almost every window. Excited about cleaning !!??? WTF???!!! 

And my garden is sure crazy with weeds that need to be removed so I can actually see the plants I planted. But in a week I will have time for all that! Really excited.

I don’t think I buy that whole thing about pets freaking out before or even during an earthquake.  We had a little one (4 point something) in the middle of the night.  Yeah it woke me up, but that was pretty much it. The kids all acted like nothing was happening.

I think the sisters are all just giving me the “We’re Neglected!!!” stares. But they’ve been really good to Moira and basically stayed out of her way. Which is how she prefers it. She really wishes she was an only child. But that’s never going to happen.

Moira is starting to hop a little faster, but she’s still off balance.  Good to know it’s normal for her to not quite have her balance worked out yet. I think once she gets more confidence she’ll be trying out the big stairs and getting up on the bed again.

Now to relax and enjoy the weekend.

Hey how’s Moira and her sisters doing these days? 

I hope you didn’t get any more earthquakes!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
