The kittens and Minnie ate like vacuums this morning, rapidly going through three cans of cat food. I don't know where they put it... well, yes, I do as I am always cleaning their cat box. The kittens went down after that, as did Mom. I took advantage of the quiet time to do chores, laundry, trash collection, sweeping and washing the floors, running the dishwasher and generally tidying up.
It's been really cool in the morning, so I opened the doors and gave the cats outside access, for which they were really happy - all except for Minnie, of course, although I did make sure she had some supervised time in the garden. I was just starting my breakfast when Araceli called. I knew what the question was going to be even before I answered.
Her son was on his way to UoP for a freshman event and he turned left on a green light, thinking that the oncoming traffic would stop for him. It didn't. It totaled his car and the one that hit it. The other driver went away in an ambulance and her son's girlfriend needed stitches for a facial laceration. Needless to say, Araceli was beside herself and she wanted me to cover for her.
I did and even though she got there just a little late, I stayed for another couple of hours, just to make sure everything was okay for her.
So that's been my morning... I came home, put laundry away, emptied the dishwasher and cleaned bathrooms. I am now officially exhausted... TBG is off for his haircut and I'm looking forward to a little me time... except the cats think it's now time to eat...
