I'm hoping that the household excitement is on the wane. On top of the refrigerator follies, there was an alien here yesterday giving Mom a price for a window replacement (of course, I'm guessing that's what the guy was doing, since she trapped all of us like rats in the office while he was here), and Mom's been sprucing up the front door with scraping and painting. We know that any moment now she's going to install that exterior shade for sliding door, too.
In the meantime, she washed our couch blanket to put away until fall! How long will that be?
This level of activity is not good for cats. Makes me tired just thinking about it.
