Reece returns tonight from a quick adventure in Chicago.
So for the past few days, it's just been me, Lola and our guard kitties.
My darling took pity on her mama and behaved swimmingly the entire time.
All she needed were soggy Cheerios and pictures of her then-pregnant mama to keep her spirits high.
As well-behaved as my normally mischievous little girl was, I took it upon myself to assemble a bit of a "temporary single mother survival kit" of sorts.
You know, in case I needed backup.
$1 Diet Coke from McDonalds
Cafe Rio Chicken Salad
Cookie dough/caramel ice cream topped with cool whip and 100-calorie hostess cakes
Cindy, who sacrificed a night with her little family to keep me from getting lonely
Though it was quite nice to have the bed to myself and only one other person to clean up after, I missed my honey and couldn't be happier to have him back.
Because as intimidating as our cats are(n't), I feel much safer when he's around.
