Brrrr!! It’s c-c-c-cold outside!! The snow is really startin’ to pile up here and that can only mean one thing, it’s almost Christmas!
Been sometime since I had the spare moments to collect my thoughts and do a proper Diary update here at the ol’ Litterbox, but given that it’s 4 in the mornin’ and your favorite restless Catgirl is awake and doin’ little or nothing but sitting in the living room watching the seemingly endless snow fall in slow motion from the darkened sky it seemed like just the time to fix that. Firstly… I thought I’d wish everybody the best of luck for their own Holiday season, goodness knows everybody can use all the good cheer they can get these days.
So what’s Neko been up to lately? I wish I could say I’ve been busy kick starting my new career as jet setting cosplay supermodel by day and crime-fighting, zombie killing, international super spy by night….. but unfortunately that’s still merely a personal fantasy daydream of mine at the moment…. Hehehe!!
Nope… as usual, the time right after Thanksgiving leading up to Christmas is a busy time for me work-wise filled with catering, parties at the restaurant, and a general frenzy of trying to figure out how to get it all done while still managing to accommodate everybody’s desire for time off. It normally means that yours truly ends up covering all that extra time and pulling my hair out at the inevitable last minute things that crop up to mess with my own personal plans.
But that’s the boring stuff…. if you want the more “personal” details then you are just gonna have to “Read On”…… (Betcha’ saw that one coming, Hehehehe!!)
Hmmmm? Let’s see…. I suppose I should clue you in on how Thanksgiving went for Carolyn. If you’ve been reading the comments on my last lil’ “Diary” entry, you already know that when push came to shove, my sweetheart chickened out and couldn’t bring herself to tell her parents all about us.
That’s OK with me…. I don’t mind being Carolyn’s “secret”, and although it still bothers her a little that this does seem to be something likely to stay that way, at least where her parents are concerned, she’s made her peace with it for now. Part of why that is, is that she knows I’m not ready to tell my Mom and Dad either, and part of it is the way our life together really doesn’t involve any of them in our day-to-day lives. I mean, our close friends know all about us, we’re both “out” at work…. , and it’s not like we don’t have some family to share things with for those “special occasions” like Christmas.
Yep… even with my crazy schedule at work, it seems we have another invite to spend Christmas with Sandra and her family this year. I’m not certain yet how much time I’ll be able to squirrel aside, but Carolyn’s sister insists we both come at least for Christmas Eve and spend Christmas Day with them if we can. She says that if we come again this year, then it’ll mean it’s become officially a “Family Tradition”, and who is this lil’ Catgirl to mess with Tradition? My goodness… I can’t believe how supportive a sister Sandra is…. she loves Carolyn so much it makes me wish I had a little sister just like her.
Mind you…. this means more last minute running around and gifts to wrap…. and some yummy baked goods to prepare….. No way is this lil’ cook gonna show up for the Holiday without something tasty to share with the family. (I’ll squeeze it in somewhere…. even if I end up baking something at work before we go!)
Uh-oh!! I hear Carolyn stirring in the bedroom… and she’ll be wondering where I’m off to this early in the mornin’ so I suppose I’d better finish up, publish this, and scoot my lil’ butt back to our warm cozy bed before I’m missed.
So, till next time, Gentle Readers… “Meow, meow for now…. and a Merry Christmas to you all!!”
