jean and i ate homemade cabbage rolls (thx chris, mmmm!) and eva just phoned and offered some pot roast so i said i would trade her some cabbage rolls for pot roast for tomorrows dinner. i am such a food scrounge, but i learned it from the best! plus i snuck two cabbage rolls away to go with the pot roast tomorrow too!!! i have aheluvalot of dinners to repay here. i better try to remember how to cook one of these days.
phoebe is so cute, and sandy is so soft, and maudie is so smart and michael is so wickedly evil yet so very, very vulnerable. tally is scrunched up in his too small chair and that little fat beagle broke into the kitchen but he was too late, the food was gone! pause actually ate tonight and he doesn't seem too upset about being stuck in a cage so he can stay there where i can keep a real close eye on how he is doing. cedric is pissed because he was trying to eat the ear off a stuffy and i took it away, i should have given him one of my cabbage rolls but i didn't.
the only sad thing is watching michael. he is slowly doing the downward slide. he is still on his antibiotics and pain meds and he seems happy enough but i don't think he will live to see the spring. the other animals will be happier without him i suppose, but i will miss him and his trolling little ways. i am thinking of writing a story for him, kind of like the grinch who stole xmas. he too was just a big grumpy softy inside.
i think there are a few here who this will be, for them, their very last christmas. we better plan a really good one for them this year just in case.
