Christmas is low-key this year. I am working Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so today I gave Mike one of his presents. I bought him the complete television series of MacGuyver on DVD. I have been saving for quite awhile and was going to order it online, but when I mentioned to my boss what I was doing, she ordered it through the store and I saved a lot of money that way.
He was thrilled, and I knew he would be because he loves MacGuyver. I told him he can’t start to watch it until Christmas though! The other part of his present I am still working on.
Because his life is so sedentary now, he has a hard time getting into the attic where we have our library. I have been slowly moving the books out of the attic into one of the upstairs room- actually, the kitty quarantine room. I have most of the paperbacks out and now just need to bring out the hardbacks and turn this room into a real library. He will still have to walk up the stairs, but he won’t have to duck into the attic now to grab an Anne McCaffrey or a Mack Bolan or John D. McDonald. I still have to alphabetize the collection we have, but I think he will be pleased at the effort. Like I said, it is a really low-key Christmas, because as usual, the cats do come first.
He got me a new digital camera so after the holidays, I will be able to put newer photos of the kittens on petfinders and hopefully get more homes for them.
