Things Are Getting Better
Karen Jo: That's right. My computer developed a persistent hard-drive glitch right after I finished blogging and visiting the last time. I have been very busy setting up the new computer and installing software and downloading stuff. I can do almost anything now, but use my e-mail. I have spent hours trying this and that, but nothing works. My ISP rejects my sign-in every time.
Oja has stolen my spot on the bed next to Mom. I fought with Emma over that, but I am not fighting with Oja about it, at least not yet. I have been able to sleep on Mom's feet while Oja has my spot.
Karen Jo: Oja usually seems content to stay up by my chest while you and Spyro sleep at my feet. Every once in a while, she snarls and charges, though.
Do you know how I got some attention from Mom yesterday? I got up in her lap and demanded that she pet me. I stayed for about 20 minutes.
Karen Jo: I was amazed. You have never done anything more than walk across my lap to get from the computer chair to the bed before.
Karen Jo: I am sorry Spyro, but I have been really busy trying to get my new computer set up. Besides that, it has been raining almost every evening. I would have taken you out tonight after supper, but it was pouring down rain.
Karen Jo: Right. You smacked Herman for walking under the computer chair.
Oja: He got too close to me. I don't tolerate Herman as well as I tolerate Spyro. The other day I let Spyro into my room to play with my toys.
Karen Jo: I tried to get a picture of the both of you playing with your toys in your room, but you chased him out just as I got back with the camera.
Oja: He got too close to me. I found out that the Turbo Track is fun to play with.
Karen Jo: I suspected that you were playing with it, because the ball was in a different position in the track every time I came into your room, but the other day I actually saw you bat the ball around the track.
Oja: Mom doesn't get mad at me for eating the food in the kitchen any more.
Karen Jo: That's because Spyro does go into your room and eat your food. I probably won't do much visiting tonight. There are still things to be installed on the new computer. I will try to get back to regular blogging and visiting very soon
