This picture is Roo’s carry-on bag. NSG loaded him up with snacks and toys in a special backpack we bought for him at a yard sale last weekend in the hopes that he can entertain himself and sit still (hah!) for the trip to Philly while she does her fearful-flyer-exercises with him in her lap.
I had plans to go to Western Mass this weekend to see a (very, very) pregnant friend, but – the nerve of her – she went into labor. So it’s 1:30, and I am ensconced very happily in pajamas on my unmade bed with 2 cats at my feet, a big cup of coffee on the nightstand, and a copy of Barbara Kingsolver’s new book (in hardback – I’m getting crazy here, people). Tonight I am going to sleep through the whole. freakin. night, and tomorrow I’m going to wake up on my own schedule and spend at least half the day sitting on my tail working on a sweater for Roo and catching up with a friend I haven’t seen in a month.
I can hardly stand myself.
