I'm taking a "kitty break". Shreddy wants lovin's. I'm not going to pass up the opportunity while I still have it.

I'm up to my eyeballs in tax returns and I have a headache. The kitty breaks are therapeutic, yeah, that's it.

Sitting through 1st grade homework on the computer. Then we're off to do 20 minutes of reading out loud.

Those Costco books sound nice, Carol and Dawg - I'll have to check for one next time I'm down that way, which isn't very often unfortunately.

Dawg, that must be a relief that your late mother's house sold. Must have been so tough to handle all that from so far away.

I'm just catching up here a little while I have the time, have to work this afternoon (can't wait till summer break!). Last night's dinner dishes are calling me but I'm ignoring it.

Well that was appropriate reading!

It is called a mental health day. Kitties have that effect on you. They know psychiatry and how to apply it to those they love.

Dawg, I know how you feel. When we inherited my folks' home I was so happy that one or both of our kids needed someplace to live while we were fixing it up for market. It was five years before neither needed to live there, but by that time I was finally ready to let go. My folks moved there in 1958 when I was 7; I got married from that home when I was 23, and all I have is happy memories of my life there and visits after. Keep the memories close and know someone else is making their own.

Awww, thanks, LP, Cheryl and CG! It's not a done deal yet, but I'm hopeful and very excited about the sale. Excellent location, and more closets than I've ever seen in any house. Lots of fixer-upper stuff though, Mom had let a lot of things go, but the "bones" are excellent.

I just got my little Go Pro Hero 3+ Silver camera from Amazon, it's so tiny! Plan to use it for snorkeling. Had to research it on YouTube, I couldn't figure out how to get it out of the package!

Good luck with the house sale.

Well... I've got another week before I get my chicks, so I'm waiting.
I was putting my brooder together when they called and said the eggs didn't hatch. Kinda bummed about that as today I was hustling around getting everything ready in case they came tomorrow instead of Friday. Oh well.
