Yesterday, when Mom and I went to check the mail,
we saw Daddy drive by heading towards home.
So our visit in the office was brief.
I went down the hallway towards home while Mom
was still talking to Nice Lady 2.
I saw Daddy on the patio,
but couldn't open the door to get to him.
So I meowed a sorrowful cry.
When Mom heard it she stopped talking and went home.
At first, I was dubious about Daddy being home early.
I thought that maybe they were plotting something;
so I went up to my Ultimate Box of Rebellion.
Before long, however, the outdoors beckoned me.
I wandered over to the sidewalk to get in a good roll.
Then Mom brought out my string-on-a-stick.
When we all went back indoors,
Mom began messing with my box house again.
I thought she was done with it the other day,
but I was wrong.
She added a curtain!
I like this new addition.
It makes for fun play.
As the night wore on, I pestered Mom to let me outside.
She seemed busy, but eventually she relented.
I began to meow and meow at Upstairs Calico.
I was trying to ignore what Mom was actually doing.
While I was obsessing over Upstairs Calico, she was
digging in the outside closet.
When I kept meowing, Mom made me go inside.
That's when I had to face reality.
She had brought out all the camping gear.
So not only does this mean I will be without Mom and Daddy
for a few days; it also means you'll be without the blog for a few days.
