We got home late last night, after midnight. By the time we went to bed it was 1:30 or so. Before we could even think about settling down, the cat demanded that we give him the attention he felt he deserved. Of course, by the time we went to bed, he was meowing up a storm to let us know that he wasn’t yet ready for bed.
We woke up far too early this morning, around 8:30 or so. Again, more loving with the cat. We headed out to breakfast (Mexican, yum – you don’t quite realize how much you miss certain flavors when you’re away). Then it was on to pick up the pupster. The cat saw us walking up the walk together and let out two big meows and ran to the door. As soon as we walked in the door, the cat was rubbing up against the dog welcoming him home and trying to snuggle with him on the couch.
From there it was back to bed for this bunch. All four of us fell back to sleep for two hours or so. I woke up so hot from having both boys snuggled up so tight. Well that and the fact that it’s 90+ degrees out. Why the hell is it 90 anything in the middle of November???
I feel a bit better. I’m not as congested as I was. There’s hope this might not turn into an infection yet. Then again, half of LA County is on fire and the smoke and ash in the air is insane. So who knows. I’m just thankful we didn’t come home to any fires in Griffith Park. That would have just been too much. We’re still waiting to hear from my BIL to find out how he is. There’s a mass amount of fire activity over in his neck of the woods and he’s just up the hill from all of it (with his exit on the freeway being closed on and off).
This has to have been one of the world’s most boring posts. To make it up to you, here are a couple videos from our trip around Dublin. If you listen closely you can hear the tour guide (see, I did get some Irish for you CurlyWurly).
More of our bus tour, this time covering the only remaining “old wall” of the Dublina and the Guinness area (I talk a bit through this one a bit, repeating what the tour guide says). Guinness bought up tons of acreage in the city and then took a 9000 year lease on it all. Wow.
PS – it’s not easy to shut off the Flip when you’re wearing gloves
