Alone at Last

Our guest departed late this morning. We have the house all to ourselves again. It’s amazing how much your freedom is taken away by having a house guest. I suppose if we had kids living with us it wouldn’t be as drastic, but since we’re empty nesters it’s a big change.

Last night Lion was aroused but said he seemed to hit a point of no return and couldn’t go on. He said he didn’t know what was going on. I think it was the effect of having someone in the room across the hall, and the fact that we haven’t been playing. Assuming we can both hold off our tiredness, I’ll pull out the Box O’Fun and see what kind of trouble Lion gets himself into. He’s been on his best behavior so he hasn’t accrued any punishment – at least so far.

I need to step up my game. Lion’s eyes seem to be getting better. If he feels better, he’ll want to play more. If he wants to play more, I need to get less boring. It looks like the Box O’Fun might be getting a workout. Of course, I can always just do my own fun. I don’t always need the box for ideas. Those ideas came from me to begin with.

I haven’t heard anything about Lion writing a post for tomorrow. He’ll probably say that he has nothing to talk about since we haven’t played. Maybe he’ll have something exciting to write about later. For now, we’re just happy to be getting back to normal.
