It was a busy, crazy, upside-down sort of day. And I ended up staying until 6:00 to let Amanda go to a special event with one of her children. I'm beat and not-quite-coherent, so I'll be brief tonight.
The tree is still standing. I'll get the lights on tomorrow and see what the cats make of them. They still bat at the branches sometimes, but they really pay very little attention to it. So far, so good.
I'm falling asleep typing, so I'd better give in, turn off the light, and go to sleep electively while I still can. I love you so much, and I still miss you the most at bedtime. It still feels strange to turn out the light and not have you here. I'm glad for the animals - they're much better than sleeping alone, but they're just not you. We'll gladly make room for you if you can come for a visit.
