A kitchen timer is an indispensable tool. I don’t have one. Instead, I use the timer on the stove. It works well because it’s digital. Although, the smallest available unit is minutes, which is sometimes too long. I digress.
I arrived home last night, at around 3 am. When I walked in, Riel meowed with a voice that sounded either parched or worn. For the next three hours, he kept bunting me, in between rubbing himself all over me. I didn’t get much sleep last night.
When my folks were up a few weeks ago, they managed to convince me to go home for a quick visit. With my mom standing over my shoulder, I booked a ticket home an hour or so before I was to drive them to the airport.
