Wednesday Wishes

This is Wednesday leaning out of her cat tree. She may look like just your average gray tabby cat, but she has many skills. Most of these skills, she uses for The Good. Okay, 'most' might be a slight exaggeration. Wednesday is a good little kitty, though, at heart. She loves her family, loves her sisters, loves annoying those sisters and she also loves to grant wishes. Every Wednesday morning, I will rub the side of the cat house and summon our magic cat!

Here are my Wednesday Wishes for the week:

1) Time - I have enough time if I just manage it wisely. So this week, I wish to be able to shut out all distractions and use the time that I have in the way that it needs to be used. Some days I feel like I'm whirling through the hours like a tornado and when the day ends, I'm left surrounded by a mess. I don't want days like that this week. I want clear, precise lists and I want to use them. Don't get me wrong - a nap is an incredibly well used piece of time. I can take a nap if I have the time. But when I'm awake, I need to use my time to get a lot accomplished! Did that make any sense? Sometimes I feel that it doesn't make any sense at all.

2)  Glasses - I haven't had my eyes checked in a good five years. I have a pair for reading that I admit to forgetting about 80% of the time. I've had a bit of motion sickness lately and I'm noticing it's an eye thing. I need to make an appointment and get a new prescription. I don't have insurance and I know that they can be costly but I'll keep my old frames. Still, it's not even the cost. It's the hassle of making an appointment and getting them checked. I'll admit to a little bit of fear as well. I remember feeling a bit wonky and out of control when they dilated my eyes. I'm afraid of that part because I don't like to feel funny. I just need to suck it up and get in there!

3) Magical, invisible dog cover - Lily LOVES the grass. If you would let her, she would nap in a warm patch of sun on the lawn all day. But it's her worst allergy. I hate that I can't let her live her life and do what she loves. Sometimes, I give in. It makes her so happy. I let her spend a few days in the yard and we're paying for it now. Despite wiping her down, she's full of itch. We washed her last night and upped her steroids for a few days hoping to get her over the hump. I feel like a horrible owner not letting her outside after walks. I feel like a horrible mother letting her outside after walks. What am I supposed to do? Wish for a magical, invisible dog cover. She won't lay on blanket. She wants the grass. But if I had an invisible cover that I could attach to her body, we'd all be a lot happier. So please, Wednesday - you like having that stinky dog out of the house so this wish will directly benefit you as well!

Pretty boring wishes for the week, but there you have it!

What about you - what are your wishes for our magical cat?


  1. Aw, poor Lily! That sounds awful. I hope you get some extra productive time this week!

  2. I get my eyes checked every year and they don't dilate my eyes. You can tell them not to.
