Ah, winter, when even the fish are bored. I think we are predicted to get something like a foot of snow in the next day. Ugh. Enough already, I'm sort of done with winter.
Are you watching the Olympics? I have to admit to watching a bit, although I can't watch more than 3 heats of anything--even Apollo Ohno. I'm digging the amount of curling coverage this year--the men are really fun to watch as they send that stone flying. I like their one slippery shoe too. I would like one of those to wear around town, sliding on just one foot making my daily routine just a little more fun. I don't like the media-induced drama though. Those darned announcers like to make drama out of nothing when they focus on an athlete. What is with that?
Speaking of drama, I gave that up for Lent. I'm going to focus on the postive and not get sucked into negativity. I'm gonna try to not say anything bad about anyone and not have a comment for things that don't pertain to me. Negativity is a disease and it spreads like wildfire. I think this may be my best Lent ever--if you rank them. It's sort of the Lent Olympics in a way.
Isn't it nice not to read about sick 'ol Hobbes today?? He is much, much better this morning. He came and sat on my chest this morning while I was sleeping, which he hasn't done in over a week. He slowed down yesterday, which scared us, but we have to remember that he was very, very sick and that isn't going to go away fast like we wish it would. I'm weary from my every thought being about him being so ill, it was nice to sleep almost through the night last night and only getting up once to check on him. Whew!
Okay, so I'm back to happy stories and fun again. I'm looking for the good in those 12 inches of snow we're gonna get and be happy even if we are bored stiff in the house. Life is good again back at the Duck and Wheel.
Happy Sunday, pallies.
