I have never wanted to kill a cat so much! I couldn't find Eli while I was cleaning up around the house this evening. I looked all over the house for him. I figured that he somehow slipped out in the garage and outside while I was taking out the trash. So, I've been spending most of the evening looking for him outside. I gave up and hoped that he'd eventually show up if he didn't get killed. While I sitting on the toilet he pops out of the closet. He was sleeping inside one of the boxes! Good thing I wasn't able to get up from the toilet then, because I could have throttled him.
It hasn't been particularly good day for me. While I was cleaning up the yard yesterday I pulled a back muscle. By this morning the rest of the back muscles were hurting because I was compensating for the one I pulled. I spent all day at my desk with a heating pad.
Right now I'm hurting, tired and irritated. I think I'll just go take a shower and go to bed. No, I won't throttle Eli. I'm so happy that he's all right that I've been giving him hugs.
