Monday Morning Rantings

You know it's a Monday when you're sleeping all nice and comfy on the Big Sleepy Spot when the Mom yanks all the sheets off the bed and you go flying in the process. Bah. I can sort of forgive the Mom today. She officially is switching over from the "summer" sheets and stuff to the "winter" stuff. This means a much thicker and comfy comforter. But I'm still miffed at the whole flying part.

The Mom and Dad are "closing" on the new house on Friday. Shouldn't it be called an "opening" since they are technically opening the house to us? The Dad is kind of freaking out about the whole thing but the Mom isn't. As she put it, she's teaching five classes this semester and still working at the library. She's so beyond the freaking out part that she has become numb.

We've had a train load of moving people coming in to give us guesstimates for the cost of not only moving us but packing up everything as well. Oh that's going to be fun. The Mom is making sure nobody is allergic 'cause there are some parts of the house that have about 2" of cat fur and dust on them. Heck, it must be bad if both the Mom and the Dad don't want to pack it up and are leaving strangers to do it and pay out an extra $500 for it.

Have I mentioned how much I hate moving?

This is going to be my 8th move with the Mom. Oh geeze. Has it been that many? Damn. I've only been alive 16 years so that means a move every two years. Well, the Mom promised me this is going to be the last one for a very long time. I hope so. I'm tired of having to hunt out good, private hiding spots.

Good luck with your move, Ayla. Maybe your Mom could take you over before the others, so you could pick out the best spots first.

I feel your pain,. I'm only five and this is the 5th place I've lived, not including the place I was before the younger Human brought me home. I wish my People would buy a house so we could just STAY PUT!

Karen Jo said...

You have my sympathy, Ayla. Moving is no fun. Maybe the new place will have some really good hiding spots for you, though.

Hi Ayla (or should we call you Baroness now?) Just where do you live that you can get half way through Jan with summer sheets? Our Mom puts the flannels on in Sept.!

You might really like the new place once you get there, Ayla! But moving is messy and everyone's tired ... I know what you mean.
