>John and the cat have a special relationship. John likes to put things on the cat – whatever is nearby. The remote, the xbox controller, pillows, my shoes, towels, etc., and usually Kitty will have nothing to do with it.

But we’ve been keeping Kitty out of the bedroom lately, since John can sleep better without less cat hair on the comforter, naturally, and now Kitty makes a mad dash for the bed and his favorite spot (right by my head) the minute the door opens. He did this just now, and John built the biggest kitty fort on top of him yet, complete with hand towels, tennis shoes, and pillows.

Kitty wasn’t giving up his spot.

Tonight, we get to see John’s family again – the Aunties & Grandma are in town for his sister Jen’s graduation, which was last night, and tonight we’re all going out. It’s really good to have family near, even if it’s new family for me. And I get to see my girls next weekend, too, which I’m SO excited about!

9 months of marriage today. 9 months of Mom being gone, yesterday. It’s gone so fast – makes me wonder what I’ve done with myself for that long.

Oh, and the BEST insight yet about why LOST has been the hottest mess this season. A very insightful (and maybe brilliant) blog entry. She’s 100% right, in my opinion, and now I must buy Palimpsest, just because of that.
