I’d like to start today over. (Warning: I’m about to indulge in some self-indulgent whining–yes, I realize that’s redundant.) I’ve been up for an hour and 15 minutes and I haven’t had breakfast yet because I’ve spent the entire time (well, okay, about one hour of it) cleaning up after one of our cats.
Apparently something he ate (I’m guessing the half-digested–yet still alive–cricket I found at the end of the mess) disagreed with him, and he left a trail of crud all over the house. And no, it wasn’t cat-puke for once–although I think I would have preferred that.
Thank god for The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Cleaning. I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten that stuff out of the carpet without their suggestions and without the enzymatic cleaner they recommended.

Neither cat seems particularly interested in eating this morning, which I’m hoping is just the after-effects of the morning’s broken routine, and not an indication that the cricket was incidental and the real culprit is the current bag of food. Because if it’s the food, I’m not done cleaning up yet (whimper). In a half-related thought, I’m starting to think our fridge may be in the process of dying. But hopefully we can replace it soon, since we didn’t have to replace the car’s transmission or anything (it turned out to be a busted sensor, which is still several hundred dollars these days to fix–gaaah–yet that’s better than the alternative!).
I had to send my husband off to grab breakfast on the way to work. I should go make a couple of eggs for myself now that I’ve whined. Then I think I’ll take a World of Warcraft break before trying to do anything productive.
