I looked around and so far, the new year looks just like the old one. Of course, we know it won't be like the old one. At least I hope not. If things get any crazier, I think I'm going to have to propose that we cats take over the world and set things to rights!
We had a good holiday. I hope you all did, too. We slept more than usual. I think I only had my eyes open when necessary, but it was all restful, pretty with lights on the tree and the housekeeper out of our hair..(just kidding). She's finished with her seasonal work and now home with us, dispensing treats, cuddles and an awful lot of cooing and making kissing noises..I think she missed us.
Housekeeper: Yes, I did miss you terribly. I'm happy to be home now after working to get ready for the holidays at LLBean, right up until Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. I had to work, you know, because some of our friends are customers and I wanted to make sure their orders got to them without a hitch.
Tom: Does the company have a sleigh?
Housekeeper: No, just reindeer. Their names are USPS and FedEx.
Tom: Oh... zzzzz...
