Greetings, and welcome back to the FoxWeb on the cusp of what should be a grand and glorious weekend!
What makes this weekend grand and glorious, you ask? Attitude! If you decide ahead of time that this weekend will be the one of the best weekends of the year so far, chances improve that you'll actually have a good weekend. That's a much better plan than simply blundering into it and hoping something worthwhile might happen.
Not that there's anything wrong with hope, mind you...!
As some of you may recall, our children are all cats. We feed them in pairs to keep the younger kids from eating everything in sight, and generally speaking that has worked out well. Recently, however, our eldest daughter has decided she would much rather eat her brothers' food. It's the same food, just in a different place behind a closed door. She normally isn't the sort who is always on the wrong side of every door, but she's gotten it into her head that if she can't get to it, it must be better than what's in front of her.
The other situation we're dealing with makes a little more sense, if you're a cat: they determine when it's dinnertime based on the amount of sunlight coming in. As the days get shorter, the sun sets earlier and earlier - meaning they should get fed earlier, by their reasoning. Try as we might, we've never gotten them to pay attention to the clock, which is how we humans decide when it's time for them to eat.
Such is the nature of catdom. They announce that they want something, and it's up to us to accommodate. They have us reasonably well trained after all these years.
On the plus side, they provide entertainment and purrs. It's worth the effort.
We hope you find your tasks worth your effort, and that you are rewarded in ways that keep you enthused. Enjoy the weekend, feed your underlings if you have them, and make the most of every day. We'll be back on Monday. Until then, be of Cheer, y'hear?!
