Quick Pet Notes

Ellys’s bad dinner: Every night she gets dog kibble and something else. She loves it; especially the something else part. Well last night; Bob was desperate, he didn’t have much of something else. So he pulled out the parmesan cheese and sprinkled it on top. Per Kate; it looked disgusting. Elly also thought it look awful. She took a big sniff of dinner and got a nose full of cheese. Started sneezing, stopped, looked at dinner again. But hunger won out and she ate everything.

Charlie’s stick: Charlie has a long stick with string on it. It’s one of his favorite toys. I hate the thing; he drags it into our bed at night. Recently; the sticks had been downstairs and out of his reach. Well Charlie has improved his leaping skills and got the stick from the top of a cabinet. Then he dragged it upstairs. Bob could hear the thump, thump of the stick against the stairs.

Sleeping habits of cats: all the cats adore the bunk beds in Maggie and Liz’s bedroom. On the top bunk are a lot of stuffed animals. It’s possible for a cat to snuggle in the middle of these animals to create the perfect hiding / sleeping spot. The other day; all three cats were sleeping at the same time on the bunk bed.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
