cats hindering posts
I'm sure you've noticed the distinct lack of posts recently. It's not that nothing has been going on, but rather plenty has. A big part of the issue has been demanding cats! It seems as though every time I sit down, I end up with a cat in my lap (and sometimes both cats). And they will stay for a good long while - yesterday I had both cats on me for at least an hour and a half, with one or the other on me for another hour. I finally had to kick off a cat to get dinner fixed.
It is very pleasant to sit with cats. I'm getting more reading done than I was for a while, and my lap is staying nice and toasty warm. But its very hard to blog. Even if/when they trap me at the computer, they tend to trap one arm such that I'm restricted to hunt and peck typing (which I despise!).
While both hands are currently unencumbered, I'll post a bit about our weekend.
M took the SAT on Sat morning, for the Duke TIP program. He wasn't too happy about giving up his Saturday morning for a test, but he was in good spirits when I picked him up. I took him out for his choice of lunch (Sonic) and then dropped him off for a Scout trip to the Aquarium. They spent the night there and saw all sorts of aquatic things. I haven't actually heard too many details of the trip though (he's mad at me for all sorts of things - like making him print out his essay, fixing soup for dinner, not letting him sit on A, ...)
D and A worked on A's pinewood derby car on Saturday morning. They got it all cut out and the wheels and axels straightened (or whatever it is that they do to them). A still needs to sand his car and paint it.
