Life has been so busy (and I have been so incompetent) that I haven't posted much here.
Here's a short rundown of events:
Spitfire was adopted by one of Molly's friend's roommates. I was happy to give him a good home but his mother is still depressed about his absence. It makes me feel very guilty. (But not as guilty as I would feel about having him get smucked in the road or freezing to death in the barn or getting an infection in some cat-fight wound that I can't afford to treat - so it's all good.)
2nd grade is gong as well as can be hoped. Issues with working memory are making themselves known and ADHD is looking like a potential problem. Maxx's teachers and special needs coordinators are Awesome, though. I could not ask for a better team.
Molly had her pins and plate removed just after Thanksgiving. Her ankle is doing MUCH better, much less swelling, greater range of motion, no more hobbling, no more sobbing. Just in time for the musical. She will be playing Ruth in Pirates of Penzance. She was hoping for Mabel but her teachers felt that she was the best possible Ruth because she can do comedy and her strong voice has a great range so she can carry Ruth's music off beautifully. She hopes to be able to sing with the Pirates in the "With Cat-like Tread " number.
Ruby Thursday is HUGE.
Just about as big as her mom - who is ready to be bred again but I keep procrastinating about that. (Stop reminding me of my failings!)
Time to run. Molly has her post-op follow up appointment today to make sure those bones are filling in nicely.
