We kind of bought a new house last week (pending the inspection goes well) and I am low key freaking out. Kids are on board with moving, it was mostly for them after all (larger, they each will get their own bedroom, can walk to school which is amazing cause the bus keeps getting cancelled) and partly for us (we’ll be able to CLOSE the office door!).

The boys are not so on board with the extreme cleaning and de-cluttering (plus KEEP IT THAT WAY) that staging this house is going to take. Ooo boy.


“Did he at least tell you why he needed fish?” 

Cara slowed, eying the purpled eyed skunk careening drunkenly in her sister’s wake. “Yes.” 

When no more was forthcoming Sara growled in frustration. The weasel and the badger hissed and she had to send a quelling thought in their direction. 

Cara rolled her eyes. “It sounded half baked to me and I’m not sure how well it will work, but he seems confident that they know what they’re doing.” She held up a paw. “I’m not going to bother trying to explain it now. He did say to tell you that yes, this is the fastest way to get quality fish since the kitchens increased security.” She looked sideways at Sara. “Apparently there used to be a lot of theft.”

The girls snorted in tandem and crossed their arms. Idiots.

Cara smiled grimly. “And since our primary influence since arriving has been mostly disruptive and negative, they all feel this is the least you can do/your turn to take some risk/deal with it/etc.” Now Cara blushed. “Especially since I’ve been bringing more positive- uh- stuff- to the table. Umm. You know…”

Sara smirked. “You do NOT do it on the table. Gay would have ALL the cows.”

    Okay, so Sara’s going to steal fish from the polars… but is there actually a cow in the bears’ pen, or is that just a metaphor taken a bit out of context? Honestly, a cow being there wouldn’t surprise me- weirder things have happened at the discount zoo.

    Congrats on the new house! How exciting! :)

    Congrats on the new house! Hope everything goes through okay.

    @Todd it’s just a visual for the metaphor “having a cow” which Gay will have all of if Cara does what Sara’s joking about.

    So, confirmation that Sara and Prozac have done the horizontal tango. Sweet.
