We got power at about 6 pm yesterday. It’s always such a surprise when it comes on before they told us it would. I expect it to be a tease and go right back off again, but it stayed on. Lion was snoozing so I started undoing all the wiring without waking him. I still have to put some things away but all the power cords are stowed.

The other night when Lion said “buh, buh, buh” and I growled at him, I thought he was going to tell me he was horny and wanted attention. I was sore and tired from dealing with the snow, the generator and the fireplace. I didn’t want to hear what he wanted. Whenever he says “buh, buh, buh” when he knows I’ve spent a long time doing something that will leave me sore and tired, I want to snarl at him. That was the first time I did.

I made it to work today, only to realize that the roads here are worse than our road. At least our road has sort of a slot track look to it. Keep your tires in the slots and it’s fairly bare road. Around work it’s like no one ever heard of the concept of following in someone else’s tracks. Now that it’s warming up, it’s slushy and disgusting. If it freezes tonight, it will be a lot worse.

Tomorrow, I’ll make sure Lion can get to his eye doctor. His car can probably make it through the slot track, but I want to be sure. My truck is a bit of a problem to park in Seattle, but at least I know we’ll get through our road. Better safe than sorry. And we’ll have one more day to spend together.

Lion remembered it was punishment day today. I’m glad he knows what day it is. For the past few days I’ve had no idea. I was a day off for at least a day. I guess not going to work does that to you. And then the power was off so I was really confused.

Perhaps tonight Lion will be more receptive to play. Last night we snuggled and I started playing with my weenie when I heard a soft snoring noise. Oh well. It was late-ish and he’d been tired. It’s a good thing I don’t let that make me feel bad.
