I thought I was getting ahead of the game….got my presents wrapped, raffia and tags put on, thinking now I could start baking and cards. This was my year of “being organized!!”
I ran out to pick up some last minute ingredients and stocking stuffers, all the while thinking how ahead of the game I was. I was driving in the car, singing along with Michael Buble, so proud of my organizational skills! I got home, unloaded all my bags into the garage, opened the door to the house and this is what I found! I should have known something was up because there was no Emmet waiting to escape out the garage door!
Imagine my surprise! Max and Emmet had un-wrapped all my packages! The wrapping paper was all over the floor! I forgot to put them in the closet and shut the door. But I thought that if I was only gone for an hour or so, they wouldn’t notice them sitting on the table. I stood there with my mouth open; should I laugh or cry?! I looked at Max; he wouldn’t look at me. At least he knew he had done something wrong. I shook my head at him and let him know I wasn’t real happy about this one! Max could not get them off the table, but Emmet could push them or pull them off by the raffia; speaking of Emmet and raffia…where were they?
I looked in my bedroom….nothing! I looked in my office….nothing! I looked in Emmet’s room and lo and behold there was Emmet with all the raffia in his kitty tunnel. What a mess. He sat there so proud! He had taken ALL the raffia and put it in his tunnel. I shook my head at him; he meowed and curled around my leg. He had no shame. This was an Emmet Victory!!
I couldn’t get mad because I was so impressed with their inventiveness! Max loves to chew paper and Emmet loves playing with raffia. I was amazed how it was divided up!! And, it only took them an hour and a half! I guess I can say that I have two very smart critters and I am proud of them! (Yes, I am a soft touch and look for the positive in all the crimes they commit!!) I am sure there is a name for that; sappy, perhaps??!!
Now, time for me to clean up, rewrap and put all the wrapped packages in the closet! I will smile all the while I am doing that!!
