Mrs. Hillbilly Mom Is Not A Mouser. But Then, Neither Are These Two.

This is what I've been doing for the past two weeks:

No. Not taking pictures of Genius-the-cat and Simba on the back porch.

CATNAPPING!

Yes. I've been a lazy bum. At least now I am venturing out each day to deposit money in the account of one or another of my spawn. Or to pick up medicine. Or grab a 44 oz. Diet Coke now full of ice, so really, I'm just hydrating myself, what with drinking mostly water all day due to the melting of the 44 ounces of ice.

I do my catnapping inside. In Farmer H's La-Z-Boy in the living room. Not on the corner of the back porch rail, overlooking the Webers, all hopeful-like. And I don't have a fluffy pillow upon which to rest my whiskery chin. And I daresay, my tail is not so svelte. You might say I'm growing fat and sassy. Fatter and sassier.

It's a good gig if you can get it.

I often find myself "catty" when it comes to the comments I make about certain people, so you and I are of the same species, it seems...

Takes time and rest to fully heal. Take advantage of it! Nothing is so important as your health.

Sioux,
Yes, I think we sprout from the same branch on the evolutionary tree.

Kathy,
Now is the prime time for relaxing. I only have to provide one meal a day of food which I heat up in the microwave or warm in the oven. None of that pesky sandwich-making that the #1 son is so vocal about. I think he must have forgotten somewhere down the line that I am a short-temper cook.
