Update on Cleo and Sunday Meme

Cleo Update

She was quiet all day yesterday, then exploded with energy about 11pm - yeah, what a surprise. Keep a kitten from moving much for 12 hours and, surprise, surprise, she wants to run, jump and climb. All things she's NOT supposed to do. We finally had to lock her in the spare room - even then she ran around for about a half hour before finally burrowing under the covers and going to sleep. I left her there an went back to our room. Sean got up around 3:30 and brought her in with us - she behaved till Chloe came in and jumped into the window. Sean has put up new curtains (replacing mini-blinds) and Chloe figured out pretty quickly, even with the curtains drawn, how to jump through the opening between the two panels and onto the window sill from the bed. Cleo immediately wanted to try it *deep sigh*, so we had to lock her away again.

We let her out for breakfast, but once she ate, she and her sister started a game of tag, so she's back in the spare room with her favourite blue blanket, food, water and a litter box. Poor baby - but it really is for the best.


Rene tagged me with this :-)

What were you doing ten years ago?
Hmm, let me try to remember. I was still working for CANEX as a buyer's assistant and counting the minutes between 8 and 4. My own boss was great, but the less said about his boss and the rest of the management team at that place, the better. However, I made some good friends and learned lots about computers while working there, so I still don't regret the five years I spent there. What else - I was working on my time-travel ms, Trust in Love and also revising my first ms, By Love Conquered (which is now officially packed away). At that point we were also still really hoping for children - I was scheduled for surgery in March of '96. And we were still in our old house, where we were working on the garden, where Scotty and George loved to hang out.

What were you doing one year ago?
Editing What the Heart Remembers, complaining about the winter *g*, and dreaming about moving to BC.
