It's Wednesday. That means I get to play with little kids all day. Nothing else gets done and by the time they go home all I can do is sit in a chair and sigh, long and loud. Today actually went quite well, in spite of the fact that the Princess was running a darn good fever and just wanted to be held for a couple of hours. No complaint about that because she never sits still long enough to cuddle with her.
The major problem that cropped up today was with my adult children. You see, niece Muriel and family are coming here next week for Thanksgiving and that has caused a little email sniping. Here are some snippets from emails between Athena, Eris, Muriel and me:
Numi (to Muriel): It will be nice to have you here. We can get in some camera time and family photos if you are interested.
Athena: Eris, are you seeing a pattern here? It seems that if you are from her loins there is NO WAY you can be her favorite! She never offers us to spend the night! In fact, I've seen her offer money for us to leave! This is all a bunch of crap!
Muriel: Oh, I'm not so sure she will ever offer again after she has us all at once. :)
Athena: Once you are her favorite it is hard NOT to be invited again and again. Too bad her other favorite won't be able to join us. Actually, I'm surprised that she didn't send out a notification that Thanksgiving was postponed until they could make it. Damn New Yorkers.
Oh, for heavens sake, go to your room and don't come out! And Muriel, you can stay as long as you want. We can sit and visit for hours eating jelly rings while I tell you all about The Duchess.
(I've posted that photo of Athena and Eris before but it seemed so appropriate to do it again.)
