Karen Jo: I have been really busy getting out Christmas cards, shipping packages and stocking up on food between snow storms.
We don't even have a Christmas tree.
Karen Jo: I know. I haven't put up a tree since my Mom died. I will look out in the garage for the small one tomorrow. I could put all the Christmas cards on it for decorations. I will also put up your stocking.
Am I going to get anything in it?
Karen Jo: Yes, you will get a toy and some treats in it.
Just one toy?
Karen Jo: You also have your two Christmas packages from your woofy cousins. You don't need more toys, anyway. You have three plastic buckets full of them already. You might get some from your kitty cousins in Albuquerque, too.
It sounds like you are going to desert me for Christmas again.
Karen Jo: Only for a day and a half. I will leave Christmas Eve morning and come back Christmas afternoon. And that's only if the storm we are having now is over by then. We are certainly going to have a white Christmas this year.
You have been really boring lately.
Karen Jo: I try to play with you, but you don't want to play for very long at a time. You get plenty of petting when I am reading and when I go to bed. You also get brushed almost every day.
I haven't gotten anything much good to eat since you cut up the turkey and froze it.
Karen Jo: You got all the turkey you would eat while I was cutting it up, though. When I was done, I put the carcass in a plastic bag and put the bag on the kitchen floor while I went outside to take the lid off the garbage can. When I came back, you had your head in the bag. I waited until you were done with the carcass before I threw it away.
That didn't take long. You didn't leave anything good on the carcass. You wouldn't share your supper with me tonight.
Karen Jo: I was eating fried rice with vegetables and an orange. I let you smell it and you turned away. That was funny. You really meowed at the orange, until you got a good smell of it. You couldn't back away fast enough then. I am having steak tomorrow night. You can have some of that.
Yay! I love steak and sour cream, though I don't eat as much of it lately as I used to. Are you ever going to put up my Christmas cards?
Karen Jo: I will work on it tonight, if my software will cooperate.
