So, anyway - we have finally reached a peace treaty with Nox. He no longer pees on things in the house and we allow him to go outside whenever he wants. We put him on the monthly flea and tick prevention and he is an altogether different cat. I am actually starting to like him. He's still not my fav, but definitely better than he was.
I am going back to my day of lounging. We finally managed to get all the school portfolios assembled and ready to be evaluated, and I'm beat. So we have taken the last two crazy cold & rainy days to sit around and just watch movies. I know, I know - not very intellectually stimulating, but it has been really nice to not be thinking. About anything.
