Fancy cat scratch post x2 = $50, vibrating cat toy $6, comfy cat bed $15… and do you know what Percy prefers to spend time with/in? That’s right this Del Monte Gold banana box that we got at Costco to carry our groceries in.
I’m sitting here on our porch listening to the birds chirp and the cars and motorcycles passing in the distance somewhere and I’m having one of those… self reflecting moments. We spend so much of our earned money buying things to entertain ourselves in the little time that we have not working. Why is that?
Percy paces when I move his box when he doesn’t know where I put it. It’s kind of funny. He loves boxes so much that we have two more inside the apartment so he has options. So what is my “box”?
I guess mine would be my husband who is sitting on the sofa right now working on his French. He’s studying the thing that he spends most days learning now. I know this is temporary and in the long run it will pay off. Heck, I better see Paris, France out of this! In the mean time all I can do is be here for him and help him when I can. I’m really glad that I decided to come to California with him. I probably would have drove myself crazy if I had stayed in Texas all this time. I do miss Texas though. I look forward to going back home. We both are.
