Crash and Cletus
While Robin's been lying in bed sick, I've been busy trying to clean up all the many things that have been breaking in my life. It's cliche, but true, when they say that everything tends to happen at once.
First, there was this:
A crazy man went on a rampage through my hometown crashing cars and unfortunately my parked car was one of them. I've spent most of my 'free time' these past couple of weeks talking to multiple policeman, insurance agencies and mechanics.
And after that, the dishwasher broke, and then I decided the carpet needed cleaned and someone should come check out our furnace so we don't accidently die and maybe we should have the deck checked out and what happened to that lawn guy? and doesn't Kip need a shot? and my kitchen needs cleaned before the holidays and I'd better start working on my Christmas list and how long is going to get my car fixed?
Maybe my procrastinating caught up with me. Maybe the stars are not lined up in my favor. Whatever it is, things have gotten a little overwhelming these past couple of weeks but I finally feel like I'm getting a hold on most of it.
In the meantime, we also got Cletus.
Because what's a zoo without a cat?
Cletus belonged to a coworker who got a new job (yay) but couldn't take his cat (pooh). For whatever reason, I decided that Cletus could live with us. He came with his own cat bathroom that cleans itself. That was a big selling point for me.
He's starting to venture out of the basement and inspect the rest of our house. He doesn't mind Kip and Kip learned pretty quickly not to put his nose near his claw.
I'm wishing for everything to simmer down soon.
