This photo turned out so well, I won’t even mention that after it was taken Shiva proceeded to chase the cat around the room. I also won’t talk about how the tree fell over and soaked all the presents. Nor will I bring up the dog devouring butter tarts straight from the oven or the cat getting scarred for life or the emergency trip to the vet. It’s simply not necessary to talk about the destruction of prized ornaments or the death of a beloved fish. On Christmas Day, all can be forgiven.*
I hope you all are enjoying the day, even if you don’t celebrate the holiday. Thank you so much for your support over the past year. I attribute the majority of what’s left of my sanity to you.
All the best to you and your family, furry and human. May you stay safe and happy and find many reasons to be silly together!
*For what it’s worth, not all of the above is one hundred percent accurate. I’ll let you decide what’s exaggerated and what isn’t. Happy holidays!
