My wife is off for a weeklong trip to Germany for work and she is sorely missed by our indoor cat, William. Since she’s left just 24 hours ago, he has already rebelled and has peed on the floor twice. I’m doing what I can to keep up with cleaning up after him and not holding it against him in a way that will just make him act out more.
As always, Harry and I come a bit closer together when we are alone in the house. We might have one or two breakdowns over the whole week, but overall we both try a lot harder to keep things moving in her absence.
Another thing that’s funny is that I always make such grand plans for spending my evenings working hard when I’m alone… and I do a decent job overall, but never quite reach the pinnacle of productivity that I aspire to. Last night I was able to complete the Assignment #2 for my ‘Gamification’ course I’m following through Coursera, but I found my attention wandering while trying to keep up with the video lectures.
OK, I wish I could take the time to write more and structure my post a bit better, but I’m sitting in ‘The Roasterie’ Cafe in Leawood, KS and just realized that I left my power cord at home.
