My week alone.
Without the Blisschick. No Blisschick. None. Nada. Zilch.
She is gonzo.
The Blisschick, as you probably know, is off to Yoga Dance Training at the Kripalu Yoga Center in Massachusetts.
I've been trying hard to tell myself, "Self, this will be FUN!! You can think of it like a retreat of sorts. The house to yourself, the Mammals to yourself. Think of it as FUN!!"
It's not working. Not completely totally. Not yet.
Once I acclimate to the bizarro absence of the Chick, I'm pretty sure I will have an OK time of it. I have a whole list of projects to work on and things to do. That's not a problem.
Here's my list:
1. Pet cats
2. Play with cats
4. Paint on some canvases (which I have to specify, due to #5)
5. Paint some walls-- the kitchen, the living room, a couple of doors, and also a table, and maybe some chairs. (Whew! #5 was a big one. I should have split that up!)
7. Write a million emails to the Blisschick
8. Remember to feed myself
There's no way I'll forget the Rabbit. Or, forget to feed the Rabbit, or forget to fluff the Rabbit's hay with fresh hay. Or, forget to snuggle the Rabbit. Or forget to play with the Rabbit. Nor will I forget to clean the Rabbit's Rabbit Box, give Her a banana chip each day before 7 AM, and Her salad every day before 2 PM.
The Rabbit gets her own separate and distinct list! An All-Rabbit-Related List.
Also due to #5, Wednesday will probably work out to be a bit of a before and after post.
Who doesn't LOVE before and after?!?
On Monday, before the painting prep begins, I will take a before kitchen movie. On Wednesday, I will take an after kitchen movie. It may be a later-in-the-day post, FYI. I have to wait until it's light to shoot the movie, after all.
FYI, Miss Zoe has not offered to help with any of the projects listed. The cats haven't offered, either, though Miss Lilly offered to "supervise" what ever that means.
So, here I go into the abyss of Blisschicklessness. Wish me luck on my (lonely, lonely) journey.
