Almost finished with this...Will leaves his girlfriend Alison in America so that he can study for one year at Oxford. In spite of promises made...Will has a wandering eye...and...anything can happen to their relationship at this point. Love the writing, the story is engrossing and the book is very satisfying.
I really am pleased with the way I am reading this year...no stresses...no blog tours...less books read but that's ok...I am ok with that!
My total lack of adventures...
I just am not ready to leave Lucy with our sitter yet...she only takes one pill a day now but I watch her constantly...I make sure she eats...I brush her teeth...I brush her coat. I monitor her. I can tell each day whether she feels well or not. Right now...I just can't leave her. She has been such a loving caring kitty...I am her person. She lives to be with me. We have cancelled and postponed and rescheduled trips just to give me more time...but I can not shake the feeling that she will not do well without me. I could let her stay with the vet but then Roxie would be in this big house alone and that's an entirely new stressful matter! I can't even imagine it.
Yesterday Roxie jumped behind the washer in the laundry room and was stuck! This morning she was bouncing off walls...flying down the steps, through the house...knocking pillows from sofas and almost crashing into the sunroom windows.
The very sad thing, too, is seeing Roxie's young muscular active body in comparison to Lucy's more fragile gently aging one...sigh!
I have not traveled in months...seriously...we have given away concert tickets and postponed a few things because of this kitty dilemma. I really don't know what to do and I am sure it has more to do with the way I feel than how they would be if we left them with the sitter for a few days. We probably should start with a short practice trip? But right now I am missing a trip to Florida and a trip to Denver...sigh!
