Nasa’s Curiosity Lands Successfully!

I fell asleep but miraculously woke up a couple of minutes before Curiosity landed on Mars. I got to watch all the Nasa people watching so tensely and then springing up like Olympians who had just won a gold medal, while breaking a world record at the same time. Except it was a room full of people all winning gold medals and breaking world records at once, it was a joy to watch. Yay Nasa!! I hope we learn a lot.

As any pet owner knows, as long as they’re still eating all is not lost. Buddy’s diarrhea has returned so I’ve been tinkering with his meds and worrying, worrying, worrying. I do that a lot, write words three times for emphasis. I should probably stop that. Anyway, Buddy seems okay otherwise, and he’s eating, so I should probably stop worrying too.

  1. Yay NASA!

    You can’t help but worry when these beautiful critters are sick and you know what the kitty doesn’t know. Worrying doesn’t solve, stop, or change anything…but what else can you do? If we didn’t want to worry we’d be stamp-collecting people rather than cat people.
