Week In Review

Last week was just plain crazy!

Monday we had my brother in town - my critters adore him.  Sadly he is quite allergic to the kitties so they are not able to show him the love but he didn't do too bad in the stuffy nose department thankfully.  With him in town that meant we were on the go so the critters had to entertain themselves.

Tuesday I had to report for Jury Duty - UGH!  Emma, Winston and the kitties had the downstairs and the ferrets had our room and I was gone ALL DAY.  I got seated on jury around 11:30 and didn't get home until about 6:30.  It was a long day for the critters.

Wednesday - back downtown for more jury duty.  Since there was a forecast of rain we reversed the order and kitties and ferrets had downstairs and Winston and Emma had our room so Emma could be under the bed during the storms.  Again - a very long day for the critters.

Thursday - back downtown again - thankfully only for the morning and then we were excused. Thursday afternoon was spent digging out at work, trying to catch up at home and trying to get the gang back on a schedule.

Friday was our first normal day of the week and it felt great!  I think this week was hard on the critters as they were misbehaving and acting out all day - quite frustrating.

On Saturday we spent some quality time at home with them which I think we all enjoyed.

Which brings us to today - Sunday.  Winston slept in until 7.  He was a good boy using his box first thing this morning.  Since then we have had breakfast and play time.  He seems to be a happy boy. The ferrets are all still sacked out upstairs and the kitties are in various stages of waking up and getting going for the day.  Emma is sprawled out on the bed sleeping in with her dad.

I am glad to have things get back to "normal" around here....
