The Grumpy Mom

I may hold the title of "Grumpiest in the House," but the Mom is getting awfully close. All she has been doing the past week or so is walk around the house grumbling.

According to the Mom, she is burned out. It is mid-terms at one of her colleges so she is swamped by term papers and tests that need to be graded on top of all her lesson plans. What's worse is that the two colleges she teaches at don't have spring break at the same time so she doesn't get a real vacation. Boo hoo. She's the one who took all the jobs in the first place. What does she expect?

Is all this MY fault? No. All I do know is that my Stinky Goodness has been coming later and later on the weekends and she is too busy to give me pets. She shouldn't be taking out her grumpiness on me. At least when I'm grumpy, I take it out on those who made me grumpy in the first place, like the Brats. Hmph.

Maybe I'll go and lie down with the Dad for a little while. At least he's not grumpy.

Purrs and head butts for your Mom, Ayla! Hope she stops getting burned. Tell her she is not a candle.

People need to take a clue from us kitties. When life gets stressful just sit down, lean back, hike a leg up, and lick yourself. You feel better, and other people leave you alone.

Max has a great idea. I hope your Mom gets through her hard time and stops being grumpy soon. I also hope you got some good attention from Dad.
