I forgot to mention that last night when I came upstairs to investigate a noise, I found Amy asleep in a fetal position with her rump in the air and cheek on the hardwood floor. I felt so bad. I wanted hardwoods for the ease of cleaning and their beauty but with kids it doesn’t seem very practical. Now I can’t afford carpet. I must work harder!
Anyhow, when I came up I disturbed the cat on a hunt. We obviously have a mouse in the kitchen (I’ve found evidence). I know where it lives and the cat does too. She is staring down the gap in the cabinets where the mouse enters and exits. The cat must have been on alert all night long. Earn your keep cat!
Amy is awake.
