I am working on January First, my assistant Charlie has the day off
Charlie my assistant stayed awake until midnight last night. He was determined to see the New Year in. I wisely went to bed early. I needed a good nights sleep so I would be well rested to hunt mice this morning.
Charlie was still asleep when I left for work. I don’t take holidays. There are always mice to catch. And, well, dry cat food is rather boring. A nice warm mouse sounds like a great way to start the first day of a New Year.
My staff keep talking about their New Years Resolutions. They are going to walk every day, or write every day. I told them to add to their list, “Clean the litter box every day.”
I don’t make lists. I just get up every day and work hard. I have dreams and books I want to write. Every day I write a little. At the end of this year, I will have a book.
I read Jeff Goins blog. He has helped me with my writing goals. My staff took his On-line writing course, Tribe Writers. I am going to sign up the next time the class is available. I wonder if he has ever had a cat take his course?
How about you?
What will you do today?
What hole will you start to dig that will give you a swimming pool at the end of the year?
Would you like to read another cat story?
