What Does It Take?

I keep saying “When I get time” and something always crops up.  Like our 10 week old kitten practicing her stealth, she spies us coming, crouches behind the mound of fabric in the middle of the parlour and rolls her shoulders as she gets ready to pounce.  Just as we’re walking by she springs forward with her arms high above her head and this happy little expression on her face, as though she’s yelling “Ninja kitten! Attack!”

I laugh a little.  I mutter a little about cat hair being spread all over the fabric I leave out.  And then I remember that I have projects I should be working on.

Thanks, kitten.

By the end of the day I am exhausted.  And I know that the rest of the household is exhausted as well, so asking them to pick up my slack is out of the question.  I suck it up, grit my teeth, and get on with it.

The only thing that keeps me going is knowing that my family is happy and decently cared for (they live with me, I’m not even going to attempt to claim I care for them well).
