Stay-Cation, Day 2

I did not think washing the windows was on the plan for stay-cation, but I might have been wrong about that. This is the kitchen window. Know what's wrong with it?Mom took the windows out last night to wash them.Yup, she washed them while she watched golf-on-the-rocks.
I don't get it. I'm doing -my- bit according to plan.

Mom says I should tell the -whole truth-.

In addition to washing a couple of windows, and putting a dimmer switch on the ceiling fan in the sewing room, Mom did some sewing yesterday, did a little food hunting, visited a quilt shop, and went to the movies with Mr Karate.

(Mom says Toy Story 3 is -awesome-; that watching the "Spanish" Buzz Lightyear alone is worth the price of admission, but the movie is not for kids under 4.)

They went out to dinner afterward, ate steak, bacon-wrapped scallops and ribs, did some clothes hunting for Mr Karate, and kitchen-gizmo hunting for Mom.

Mom says that was an awesome start to her stay-cation vacation.

So what's the plan for today? Well, after the obligatory change-the-sheets and empty-the- dishwasher and wash-another-couple-of-windows, it's go see Mr Karate & PlusOne play in their recital, and more sewing and more golf-on-the-rocks.

You can find me in the cat hammock.

Your mum is very busy on her staycation, but it is nice to hear that she is heading out and doing some fun stuff. Our staycations do not usually involve much in the way of cleaning.

Mom says she is on a permanent staycation. Something about getting laid.

A-hem!

Off! Laid off.

I had a comment about washing windows, but then I read Padre, PandaBear, Meerkat, Cookie, and Caramel's comment... I snorted a laugh so hard the comment flew right out of my head...

Well Millie - it looks like you need to step up your efforts in Mom-training. THAT is no way at all to spend Day 2 of a stay-cation. Toooooo busy around the house and not enough scritches for the cat.

So did any of that steak or ribs or scallops or baconbaconbacon find its way to you, Millie?

It sounds like your human is doing more stuff on her stay-cation than at her regular job! Where does the part come in when she serves you and is at your beck and call? I thought that was the whole point of a stay-cation... or am I mistaken?
