Did you know it gets light at around 6 am?

I guess most of you do, but I don't. I'm usually passed out in a complete Ambien stupor at 6 am. But not this morning. I had to get up early because I've got a crappy meeting to go to, and I was too damn lazy to prepare for it last night, so I had to cram all of this stuff in this morning. It meant searching the house for some records, finding other records that I had carefully filed away in the big black fireproof box, and then getting everything together into a lovely see-through file folder. Ah... what an exciting life I lead.

My house is being cleaned as we speak, I'm waiting for my ride, the Boy has been rudely kicked off his Xbox by moi, and the Girl is upstairs primping. That child takes hours to get read to go absolutely nowhere. To be 13 again....NO THANKS.

The Worthless Pet has finally shown an interest in something other than sleeping and eating. He's discovered the world's greatest cat toy. Is it something I spent money on at PetCo? Why no. It's a piece of sugarless hard candy in a gold wrapper. It goes flying really far and he chases it all over the downstairs. He also has decided that it's fun to go running down the hallway and pounce on the hall oriental at full speed, so that it not only bunches up, but rides a few feet with him on it. Sort of like surfing, kitty style. This from a cat who has never played with anything before, deigning to maybe bat at a string if you insist.

I've shown the Boy how to post here, so he'll write an update after my surgery tomorrow. He's coming to see me sometime in the afternoon, and will update afterwards. Don't expect anything pithy. Otherwise, nothing new, funny, or pathetic to report. We're just living the la vida loca in the breakdown lane here at WWIT.

Best of luck with the surgery - I will be thinking of you.

I too very rarely get to see how early it gets light, only my excuse is a large nightly dose of Seroquel. Don't you hate losing out on that sleep time because you procrastinated - I do it all the time and get so mad at myself!!

I will be thinking about you Margalit--tonight and tomorrow...I hope ALL goes well and that you get a tiny bit of rest (lol) out of your hospital stay...

Michele sent me this A.M. and I'm sure I'll be back a couple of times before tomorrow...but I wanted to be sure to wish you all the best in tomorrow's operation.

Michele sent me here to see you, Margalit.

Good luck with the surgery. Nishtgedeiget.

Anything having to do with the old ticker is scary since I've heard rumors we really need that organ. The guy I work with in my lab is a resident and will eventually be a thorasic surgeon so he's always watching virtual surgeries on the computer. I'm sure you'll be in good hands, Margalit.

Good luck with the surgery, Margalit.
My cat does the same thing in one of our bathrooms. The rug stays messed up all the time because of it, and she isn't even chasing a piece of candy. She surfs the rug!

I have long felt that there is absolutly no reason to get up that early. I certainly don't. And haven't since I had my children. I like your blog. You sound like me in some ways.

i hope that all goes well with your surgery. i'm assuming something went well because...you are on michele's right now. while it might be annoying...your cat story cracks me up. animals always amaze me. such lovely, fickle, bizarre creatures. you have to love them for that if nothing else. i'm visiting from michele's today but i'll be back on my own!

You'll be on my mesheberach list, of course! Please have "The Boy" send me an email to let me know how you're doing, as I'll be anxious until I hear.
