So I am sitting here waiting for things.
What things you might ask ...
Well, I am waiting for the cat , no, not Minette.
The Lost Cat .. waiting for him to come sniffing around my back garden, to discover that those good stinky fish smells are coming from a bowl... in the back of that huge crate ... which will close when he enters it ...
Then I can call his mom and dad who are worried sick about him.
And they don't need worries.
Dad is getting ready to go spend a year in Afghanistan, Mama and baby will wait at home, here, with the cat.
So Calvin, if you are reading this , come home.
Minette wants to meet you . So do I.
The realtor told me someone was very interested in the house.
I dropped the price and they will come tomorrow to look at it.
I can definitely wait if I have to but there are a couple of things that make me want to get this over with.
1- I hate Waiting for things.
2- I found a new house.
A new old house. An Arts & Crafts house that was built just for Minette and I ... many years ago.
It has everything I want ... especially the Fireplace .
The stone chimney .. the enclosed porch ... the Norfolk Pine trees that tower over everything.
The sweet little tiny bridge over a tiny stream in the back garden that leads to the meadow and woods.
There are no houses in front or behind ... there is a street in front... then woods . then a stream and then a forest.
This is pretty much the house I have been waiting for.
But now I am tired of waiting.
Let's sell this house already !
So Calvin the Cat ... hurry up and come home.
Your mama and daddy need you and I have to Stop waiting and Start making lists.
I refuse to put on that list Things To Do If I Don't Get That House.
