Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! I want to tell you about my weekend! You see, Mom went away for three days for what she said was a “much needed getaway.” I don’t know why she needs to get away, because I think our life here is just purrfect, but I do understand that humans sometimes need a change of scenery.
Before things got weird in the world out there, Mom used to go away every couple of months, and I got used to not having her here all the time, but she hadn’t been anywhere since last September, so this was a big deal. But my Aunt Rita came to take care of me twice a day, and I slept for most of the rest of the time, so the time went by fast.
I love my Aunt Rita. She doesn’t just feed me and give me my medications, she plays with me, too! We had a good time together, and she sent Mom photos of me. I know Mom likes that, because she misses me, too.
When Mom came back Sunday evening, I was so happy! I rolled over for her and kissed her, and I even let her pick me up and hug me, which is not something I often allow. Mom seemed very relaxed and felt lighter to me, so I know she needed this getaway, and I’m happy for her.
A note from Ingrid: I am blessed to have friends who have a beautiful weekend home a couple of hours south of here. It’s nestled in a beautiful, wooded area with a view of the Potomac River. We had a wonderful time just relaxing on their screened-in porch, taking their boat out on the river, and eating delicious food. Since travel in general, especially flying, doesn’t feel safe to me right now, this was such a great way to have a little mini vacation. And at the end of it, I was as glad to get back to Allegra as she was to have me home again!
