Tired Thursday

 I can't believe how weird Mom is acting.
Emma:  I am looking for Mom's mind.  I think she lost it.

We are used to Mom coming home and announcing that she is tired.  She does that almost every night.

Emma:  Last night she came home with flowers and a balloon.  Instead putting on her PJs after she fed us, she put on a clean shirt and changed her shoes and combed her hair.

She called her friend that she goes out with and off they went and didn't come home until stupid o'clock.

Emma:  When she finally got home, she had more balloons.  When we tried our best puzzled looks to find out what was going on, she said that she was re-tired and was celebrating.

Of course she was tired all over again, after working seven days in a row then staying out until stupid o'clock, but we don't see anything good about that.

Karen Jo:  Retired doesn't mean that I am tired all over again.  It means I don't have to go to work any more.

What about the green papers?  You always told us that you had to go to work to get green papers for our food!

Emma:  And toys!

And treats!

Emma:  And litter!

Karen Jo:  Don't worry.  I worked for a long time and earned a pension and Social Security.  They will send me green papers every month.

You mean they are going to give you green papers NOT to go to work?

Karen Jo:  That's right.

Weird!  But I think I will like it.

Emma:  Me, too.

Wow! Our mommy says she is so jealous that your mommy got to re-tire...Have lots of fun and remember that your mommy doesn't have to get up to go to earn green papers-but she will have to continue to get up at oh dark thirty to feed you, but you can let her go back to bed after.
So, snuggles and concats to all.
