Absence and hungry kitties

About a year ago, I found the only fortune a cookie has given me that I thought worth keeping: “Absence sharpens love, but presence strengthens it.” I thought it really poignant at the time because of the trials of my relationship with Josh and the physical distance that’s between us lots of the time. Tonight, I found the fortune on the fridge as I was cleaning off some old papers. And I still appreciated the sentiment as much today as I did when I first cracked that cookie. I’d like to think that what he and I do now — two weeks with him in LA; two weeks with him gone and me holding down the fort — is sharpening and strengthening our relationship. In some ways it is: Josh is in Phoenix and still listened to my crazy today and said that if it would help for the apartment to stay messy, then it should stay messy. I just need to keep the cats alive and take care of them.

This conversation was after I came home from work tonight and realized it had been more than 24 hours since I’d given them food or water. I’d thought they were acting funny this morning when I was leaving for work. Little did I realize they were trying to get me to not starve them for the 11 hours I was gone.

Sorry kitties. I’ll do better tomorrow. 😦

    Aww, kitties. Luckily, they’ll survive. And Josh is right — you don’t have to be superwoman, ma’am. The apartment can be messy. Make sure you feed the kitties and yourself and the plants, though. I hope things all calm down for you soon! 🙂
