I make it a goal to come back and set some goals. Little steps.
On a happy note-the cats finally dispatched a mouse. This is not happy for the mouse, but it's been cold for several weeks, mice come in every year-and I was beginning to worry. I'm not sure how one goes about setting traps with cats loose in the house. Out of three young cats I hoped one of them would figure out the drill-and finally one did.
To be honest, I hadn't actually seen any evidence of mice-so I may have judged the mighty hunters harshly, but at any rate I'm glad they figured it out.
