A wee break.....

A wee break.....

This is not an exciting Mancat Monday post like I had planned. It is just a quick post to let all our friends know that we are taking a little vacation and will be back hopefully next week sometime. No, not a fun vacation, a vacation from fun! We are getting all new windows this Spring so the PM and MM went looking around and talked to some window people. Apparently our huge cordwood window ledges are big trouble and all the wood has to be torn up to put in the windows then replaced. A real big job and one that some contractors rather not take on. So next week starts a parade of estimates and contractor visits. Stress in itself but we also have two areas in the house which have become a catch all for all objects and piles without a home. These are located in front of windows which will have to be measured.

So, the PM has to clean out these areas and find homes for things which in turn means all the rooms have to be cleaned out, furniture moved and shelves put up. The PM has also failed the three point stress test which includes trouble sleeping, eye twitch and migraines. Her eye is twitching so much I am worried one minute it'll twitch right off her face and chase us around the floor! Her birthday was on Saturday and she came home from visiting friends and having a party with her family, all happy. It didn't take too long for the eye to start twitching again and for the head to feel like a knitting needle is going straight through it.

So all this to say that the PM has put a fun ban on until the house is spruced up. We are having a big Spring cleaning really early! We will miss visiting everyone and hope you have a great week or so. We will leave you with some great shots of us to get the "twitching eye chase" out of your mind.

Isis said...

Good luck with your windows... Tigmut'hep is the only one of us who lived here when Mummy & Daddy had to get all new windows here. He says it wasn't all that bad as furniture got moved and he found a lot of his toy rats when that happened. Plus one of the window fitters was fond of cats and fussed him! Tigs tried to go off with him in his tool bag at the end of the day! ;)

Purrs,
Isis
