Holy Busy Day, Batman.

It’s been an unusually hectic, and somewhat exciting, day. And maybe not exciting in the good sense.

It started off fast. We slept in, and when we woke up we got a little surprise. Ash got dressed before me and went into the living room. I was still rolling around trying to wake up when I heard her say, “Come help me find the ferrets!” I was awake in a shot and ran into the living room to find kleenex, paper towel, plackers, and absolute destruction strewn around the room like a hurricane had blown through (or, in this case, two tiny tropical storms).

It didn’t take long to find the culprits. Drake had returned to his bed inside their cage, and a quick searched turned up Nate, curled up inside the sleeve of Ash’s winter jacket which they had pulled to the floor. He was utterly adorable, and I quote Ash in saying, “You’re lucky you guys are cute.” I cleaned up their mess and then, because I was on a role, I cleaned the entire bathroom including mopping the floor and cleaning the toilet. Wow, the boys actually gave me motivation to do something. Gotta love the ferrets.

It wasn’t the end of the excitement though. About an hour later, I walked into the bedroom to discover that Akima had managed to get into the bookshelf and scoop out one of our bettas from his tank. I screamed several forms of curses at the cat while Ash rushed in and, with her clear-headedness and calm demeanor in the face of my panic, picked up Aristotle and plopped him back into his tank. I thought for sure he was a goner, but Ash cleaned out his tank and we put him in a little healing bath for a few minutes. We still aren’t sure he’s going to make it through the night, but he’s in a very clean tank now and he’s swimming to the top to breathe on his own now (earlier, we had to use a spoon to guide him to the top since he was too weak to do it himself). His health still keeps going back and forth though, so we’ve had him with us in the living room to monitor him all day. I’m hoping he’ll pull through.

I’ve also been doing laundry, working on WordPress themes (including setting up a blog for Ash and making a design for her), and we’ve watched tons of House M.D. So amongst all the excitement and anxiety of the day, it’s also been productive but relaxing. How? I have no idea, but it’s been that sort of day.

How’s your day been?
