sleep is good

This week has been excessively busy for me. It's almost all good stuff, but I've definitely been falling more and more behind as the week went on. It's also largely been super social. Again, largely good, but also wearing when I don't get some down time.

Yesterday afternoon, I started to hit a wall; I had a hard time keeping my eyes open for my 2pm meeting, and finally managed to drag myself out of the office just before 5, only to nearly fall asleep on the bus on the way home. This NEVER happens to me!

So, I got home at 6 and figured I'd crawl into bed for a nap before dinner. Next thing I know, I wake up and it's 10pm. Oops. So I got up, brushed my teeth, and climbed back into bed, where I slept soundly until 6:30 this morning.

I feel much better! So that's awesome. I was a little out of it this morning, so I forgot to put on glasses or earrings, but my socks do match, so I can't really complain. I'm looking forward to some idle moments this weekend, though, for sure.

lost and found

While I was in California at the end of May, my awesome cat slipped out of the house and went missing. It sucked a lot to be far away for that, as it made it impossible to do a lot of the things I would have done otherwise, especially wander around the neighborhood calling her. She's pretty responsive to me and that might have worked. I got home just shy of a week after she first went missing, and though I did go calling around the neighborhood a bit, it felt a lot less useful, because I kind of felt like, well, if she's nearby, surely she would have found her way home?

So, my first week back, I spent as much time outside around the house as I could, a lot of it talking, so she might hear us, but I was feeling like it was too little, too late. I also contacted Somerville Animal Control (they're super, super nice), and kind of decided that probably Kitty had been taken in by a family nearby.

Then, this Wednesday, out of nowhere, Kitty returned! She sauntered into the house while amber_phoenix was home and longueur and I were off running Poly Speed Dating. WTF? and YAY!! So, that's three weeks she was gone, and she has definitely lost weight, but she isn't skin and bones, and she's totally still herself. I'm SO HAPPY to have her back, but more than ever, I wish she spoke English, because I have so many questions! Where did she go? Why was she gone so long? How did she find her way back?? WHAT HAPPENED?

I'll never know, but ultimately, that's okay, because her purr is as good as ever. Maybe better.
