we've planned out thanksgiving dinner. deep fried mac and cheese for an appetizer, then turkey and mashed potato tv dinners and pumpkin pie with cool whip for dessert.
christmas dinner is going to be harder. i want a rib roast to infuse with garlic, but kelli doesn't eat red meat. so i'll have to roast some chicken up for her. then yorkshire pudding for all.
i still haven't decided if i'm going to decorate for christmas. maybe. i don't know.
it's been a week since henry passed and the pain is tolerable. just little reminders here and there. he will not be forgotten. the other cats continue to be affectionate beyond their normal dealings. evey morning they pile on the bed and wake us up in the nicest, nose biting way. i told doc no new cats until jack mellows and matures. he's still in kitten mode. doc said no new kitties until we move somewhere else. i'm cool with that. i may dream of other kitties, but in my waking life, i will not be ready for a long time.
i think i will decorate for christmas. all i have to do is find the boxes. and the tree. i can hang stockings. we have some lights to put up. i think it will be a good thing for all of us. it will be cheery.
