No Katie Here

In much lighter news, The Girl is in the Pacif­ic North­west! For three weeks! She’s scout­ing col­leges and see­ing friends and so on. She’s already in geo-love after just a few days, say­ing she’d like to live there. Her hosts seem like Very Good Peo­ple, and I hope to meet them when they come to town for Dragon*Con.

Kioshi is utter­ly uncon­solable, though. He wan­ders through the house look­ing for her, return­ing fre­quent­ly to her door (still closed, and no, I won’t open it to let him in), the front door, every sin­gle window—hoping in vain to catch sight of her. I’ve nev­er known such a one-per­son kit­ty! He does come to me and Sam (a lot), fran­ti­cal­ly at times, and he lets us pet him. But he won’t set­tle in our laps long at all. He has to dash to the front win­dows every time a car goes by, just hop­ing it might stop and dis­gorge the girl. I hope he gets more attached to us by the time she returns. Wher­ev­er she goes to school, though, I think she’s going to have to take the cat with her!

I’m less demon­stra­tive than the cat, but I do miss her. I know she’s with good peo­ple, and she’s hav­ing a great time, and she’s a smart young woman with a good head on her shoul­ders. But she’s my baby and she’s way far away and we’ve nev­er been apart for more than two weeks in her whole life!!!

Ok. I’ll try to rein that back a bit.

Cyn is Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.

  1. **hugs** I’d be all kinds of freak­ing out, too.

    It was weird to me when my room­mate was gone for a week!

  2. I won­der what you use on your site to adver­tise posts on your site. Because your traf­fic is awe­some. I’d be fol­low­ing for more.
