Here we are again. All fosters posted, just waiting for those amazing adopters to start calling. Not much changes, day-to-day, though if I’m paying attention I notice whatever new Ella has learned that day (or that she’s losing a tooth! Her baby fang dropped out the other night). Otherwise, no new introductions, no significantly new behaviours. The HSI girls continue to progress and Regine has become an absolute love bug — especially when she’s hungry. 😉 I’ve done what I can for their next stage.
I look around my place and think of all the things I have to do and then sink onto the couch, paralyzed. So.Much.Work. So little space. I have a thing about clutter; my place can be ditch-pig dirty and, though I notice it, it doesn’t really slow me down. But add a little extra clutter? I might as well be carrying 50lbs on my back. (I suspect the short days don’t help; Monday to Friday it is always dark when I’m home.)
My dining table is bigger than usual, taking up more room, with a leaf put in to create a bigger work space. Partially finished Christmas presents and projects — including my sewing machine — are strewn everywhere. My huge container of Christmas stuff sits in the middle of the room (with Bella’s basket of supplies on top when she was here). There are cat toys everywhere. The kitchen is a clutter of dishes and various cat supplements — left out so I don’t forget to use them! And of course it is winter, so there are boots and scarves and gloves every time I turn around.
All this and I haven’t put up any Christmas decorations — including my outdoor lights. I just can’t face more clutter. Not to mention five cats might have an opinion on the decorations and where they should be.
Bella and her stuff are gone now and some of the gifts have been delivered. The last of the deliveries have come, so I can get the last of the wrapping done! Maybe then I can get a handle on re-organizing and decorating!
I really do love Christmas. I just wish it wasn’t quite so chaotic and that it mixed with cats a little better. 😉
