Day 24 – November 24, 2010


We’ve agreed to watch our neighbor’s cats while they are gone for the holiday.  We’ve done this for a number of years and have never had a problem…if you exclude the time the one cat climbed to the highest rafters of the patio.  That was a little unnerving. 

We really enjoy watching the kitties.  Like tonight.  The male decided he wanted to play and rolled around like a puppy at my feet.  I ruffed him up and he wanted to play even more.  He just kept going at it.

His female counterpart came into the room and just stared at us both like we were idiots.

It was a highlight of my day.

Lately, I’ve been working on some site specific submissions for a multi-site research study.  Each site has unique requirements for their paperwork and it takes many hours to get it completed correctly.  It wouldn’t be so hard if that is all I did for my job.  I could probably get it done in a week or two.  Unfortunately, I still do my work on other studies and so the amount of time I can commit to the project is very limited.  I’ve put in quite a few hours outside the office trying to stay ahead, but one more site remains incomplete.

So a rough with the cat was a wonderful diversion to a crummy week.
