(Part of an article that you can read in the "story" section)
Here is a typical day in December for me:
4:00 am Wake up
4:03 am Let the dogs out of the house
4:05 am Let the dogs into the house
4:55 am Put some of the dogs into the yard and keep some of the dogs in the house
5:00 am Enter my office and spend the day writing at the computer while letting dogs in and out of the house
5:45 am Hear a loud crash as an ornament falls to the tile floor
5:46 am Listen to the flailing of claws and paws as cats scatter through the home (upon said tile)
5:48 am Curse (a lot) as I make my way through the minefield of little glass balls that have been knocked to the floor from the tree. Run to tree and locate the culprit responsible for most recent ornament drop. Warn them I will take them right back to the shelter if they don’t stay out of the tree, and remind them what shelters do to Christmas-hating, destructive cats.
6:00 am Cat, disgusted with me, storms off as I clean up the shattered ornament I was given as a gift from my best friend.
7:01 am Repeat previous scene. As necessary. Throughout the day…
