Lookee! A little Mama in the house! In my house! That’s completely thrilling. I got to open the door for her and invite her in. Oh, the fun of it. Really.
And the cats, they seem to be settling in just fine. Adah doesn’t even seem to have really noticed she’s in a new home — she just thinks I’ve rearranged the furniture. Digit, or Mr. Scaredy Pants, is being a Very Brave Polydactyl and faking it well. He’s on my stomach right now, kneading me. If he buries his head in my shirt far enough, maybe all of this will go away.
All right. No time to blog today. Drove home this afternoon with Ma and the kits, and I still have to go to work tonight. It’ll be a three-cup night, I think.
(I never, ever thought how much pleasure inviting my mother into my home would give me. I’m about to bust with house pride. Really. Oh, this is good.)
