|Timmy the Cat - NOW could you say goodbye to that face?|
Yes, I have issues. I'm not proud of them but some actually make us the interesting people that we are.
Lately, my issues stem from being a homebody. I could care less, about going somewhere. Reason? Well besides being a cheap homebody, I would miss my animals. There we have it: MY ISSUE.
I love my animals so much I hate to leave them more than a couple of nights. Even then, I am so happy to see them. We usually get Char, to stay here at the house and be here for the dog and 2 cats. The dog is fine as long as someone plays ball with her and feeds her. The 2 cats, HIDE and only come out when there is food, only to sniff around, take a nibble or two, and then walk away to hide. When I come home, I get an earful from the cats. Then for the next few days, they follow me around and just want to be with me.
So don't say, they don't really miss us, or even know we are gone.
I know I attach human emotions to my animals and that is what triggers my panic when I leave them.
I NEVER want to live without a dog and a few cats.
I saw where Norwegian Airlines is offering a deal- one-way flights to London for $199 from Oakland. In April 2018 they will be offering a round trip to Paris out of Oakland for $475. Booking a bag will cost $130 per bag. OUCH.
I told my husband about it. We've always wanted to go to Normandy. We could do this. But my "issue" gets in the way.
So far, we have been working on the house and have not had a vacation. He wants to drive up to Oregon to see the Spruce Goose. I want to go to Yosemite in the Fall and then swing over to Virginia City. Basically 2 or 3-night trips. I can handle that.
The other issue, is: We are having a horrid crime spree in our community. But then again, if Char is here, at least our house is being occupied.
PS. Timmy the Cat, is gone now. We had him for about a year. He was about 18 mos old when he left home and never returned. The coyotes got him. RIP sweet Timmy.
