And so this is Christmas

For Christmas the universe gave me one dead cat and a migraine.

Fortunately, Ivan is delightful and Steve and I gave each other perfect gifts.

Steve gave me a watch that has a calorie counter, odometer, heart rate monitor and timer. I wanted a new watch anyway, because my current Casio has been on my wrist since before deployment. He also gave me a new Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and one of the Alton Brown "Good Eats" books, which is MASSIVE and I can't wait to start using it.

I gave Steve a cast-iron dutch oven. He used one a lot when he was younger, and doesn't know what became of the one he had in his parents' place. I also gave him a waffle iron and a bottle of Gentleman Jack bourbon.

We got a Litter Kwitter kit for Ivan. He likes to sit on the toilet seat anyway, so we figured he's a good candidate for toilet training. We've also discovered he's another TV viewing cat. He's enjoying the video that goes with the Litter Kwitter immensely.

We didn't go to church. We got as far as the parking lot last night but realized I was thinking, "Okay, let's get this over with." That's the wrong attitude so we went home. Then today I woke up with the migraine. So we're going to have a quiet day at home, methinks.

Looking forward to toilet-training our little man! Wait for Ivan videos, coming in the near future.

Teppy, I'm so sorry to read about Mei-Mei. I just got home from work and hadn't read LJ for a couple of days. You're in my prayers, and I'm glad you got Ivan FIRST so he wouldn't feel like a "replacement" cat (of course no one can replace another!).

I know what it's like to lose a cat on Christmas. I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend.

Go eat something unhealthy, watch some Gundam, and enjoy Ivan!

I remember that. Thank you for the condolences.

We're having homemade nachos for Christmas dinner.

We're taking this week off mostly, so give me a call and we'll get together. I appreciate the gift of music!

We'll start Ivan on the Litter Kwitter as soon as we can get some flushable litter. Right now all we have is scoopable, which won't work.
