Don’t let the title of my post lead you to believe that I have become a zoologist all of a sudden. I have not. I am taking care of things I ought to take care of and I call them ‘otters’ as in I otter do this and I otter do that.
GN and I otter get our teeth cleaned, so those appointments are taken care of. √
It is also time for GN to go to the orthodontist, so I otter make that appointment, too. I’m so glad I didn’t have to worry about it through most of the winter! We are nearly done tending that otter because her smile is perfect now. √
I finished Gr8’s gray mohair birthday shawl and I otter get that in the mail. It will arrive in plenty of time. √
I otter get the oil changed, so my Chevro-sleigh will be taken care of this week. √
And a homeowner ‘otter’ take the knobs off the stove and give them a good cleaning from time to time. We must be vigilant about germs, right? √
I can’t call it a ‘honey do list’ because my honey has been gone for nine years already. I could grow up and call it a chore list or a to do list, but since I grew up on Pollyanna and Mary Poppins, I prefer to think I am tending otters. Pollyanna played the Glad Game and Mary Poppins’ advice was to “find the fun and snap! the job’s a game.”
Okay . . . I otter get back to work now. Bye! √
