All Done January

Not a great month. Happy to see it go away, and no encores, please. Though cool things got done this month; you can look at my Stuff I Did for Jan 2016 if you want to know what they were.

My mom stayed with us for much of January, which was a blessing and a delight, and for which I was grateful. So was Seymour, since the two of them like to have conversations all day long, while I am more sparing with my chosen social interactions.

Definitely a month in which I am grateful for cats. Especially the new kitty, Twist. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. He is a bonafide puppy-kitty: he fetches and everything. Sleeps on my chest, or head. Yowls if I dare to be on the other side of a closed door. Purrs like a lawn mower. Happy to be held like a sack, upside down, whatever. The other cats are dealing with the interloper, grudgingly. No matter how stressful things are, snuggling with a cat always makes me happy. HE IS WONDERFUL. He is sitting on my shoulder and purring right now.

Iz is still pondering college(s), Leo is getting many compliments on the latest additions to his cheeky t-shirts, and Mali has a new shorter 'do that makes her look like a perky bespectacled plasma ball and apparently compels everyone to touch her curls. That's pretty much all I have to report.

On to February. Please.


  1. Oooh, I want to touch Mali's curls and I don't know her and it would be entirely inappropriate.

    How does Mali feel about having her curls tweaked? My kids, who are hapa (not redheads), had a conversation the other day (with a group of other hapas of many interesting mixes) about how everyone wants to touch their hair, and how frustrating it is. Do children with redheaded curls have similar issues?

    1. She doesn't mind, but she's really easygoing about her social interactions. I told her that no one gets to touch her hair without her permission. What did the folks you talked to have to say?


Respectful disagreement encouraged.
