Kitty Cats and Christmas Lights

Its that time of year again, and as usual we started decorating our inner sanctum over the Thanksgiving Day Holiday. However, we quickly learned that this was not going to be a regular decorating party. We have the Christmas Town Village on the mantle, that is safe--kitty proof. Then we (I supervised) put up our tree and some lights. It was once the lights were on the tree that we realized that this was going to be another interesting episode with the kitties. The looked so sweet an innocent underneath the tree, just like little presents. Then we heard a crunch, and another crunch and noticed a lower branch was moving. The little rodent was eating the Christmas lights, off the string. I have no idea how many they have eaten, yes his sister has been in on it too, all I know is that the lower string of lights no longer works, and as for those branches, will never be the same. As for the decorating, yeah, not so much. We are not sure what would be safe from the torment of the kittens. What to do, what to do?

Other than that, things have been going pretty well. My knee is progressing well, I visit the doctor on Tuesday, hopefully I will get down to one crutch and then off, they are so annoying. Work is getting crazy, with the semester ending and changes that are ongoing in the structuring. It is getting frustrating, only knowing bits and pieces and not really liking any of the bits or the pieces. I am going to try to deal with it, and I will leave it at that, one of these days I might just have to vent. All I can say is that for now I have crutches and I will not hesitate to use them.

Christmas shopping is almost done, thank goodness for catalogs and the Internet. Last year I shipped most things directly, this year I will not be able to do that because of getting gifts from several places for people. I plan on sending all of them to two central places, that way they can have a long distance family Christmas with us. I just hope that everyone likes the items that they will be receiving, one never knows especially when you do not see the person's reaction when they open the gift because of not being there. Speaking of Christmas shopping, I best get hopping so I can finish some up tonight maybe.

From this bunny hole, keep on keepin' it--Peace.
