So except for a few posts here and there, I’ve been pretty AWOL on my blog lately. So I thought I would give you, my dear readers, a bit of an update:
We have been pretty busy lately. We spent a nice afternoon in Charleston with our friends Teresa and Zoltan a few weeks ago. We also recently had our friends the Magandas over for dinner last Saturday evening.
However, the biggest news is, as those of you who visit Waldie’s blog already know, we got a cat. A 3-month old kitten, to be exact, and she is a (precious) pain in the ass. We named her Mokey* after the Fraggle Rock character.
After a few days of hiding and somewhat sickly behavior, she is now in full-force kitten-mode, first to our delight, not to our slight dismay. She finally started to move around and play a little after two or three days here in the house, but now she’s moved on to clawing up our clothing and bedspreads, meowing NON-STOP for hours, climbing onto our desks and drinking from our water glasses, sitting on my pillow by my head while I try to sleep, leaping into an open toilet bowl (I caught her, luckily), climbing into a hot oven (Katie caught her there, also luckily) and walking around on our dinner table when we’re not looking (and actully, even when we're staring right at her, come to think of it). It’s a good thing she’s absolutely sweet and adorable, or I might be inclined to grab a shoe and smack her as I would be inclined to do to other pests that invade my house.
* I thought it was spelled Moki with an “i”, but evidently I was wrong.
