All of our little birds flew away for the holiday leaving The Mister and I to our own devices. They did not, however, take any of their critters with them so we spent the week babysitting two very bad cats and a giant puppy.
The Mister had surprised me with flowers but they had to stay outside because the guest kitties wanted to eat them.
Ditto for the basket of candy so it all stayed in plastic containers.
I learned never to send The Mister off by himself to get a little bit of candy. We will be eating this for months.
