Petsitting, Community Dreams, Invader Squirrel

I am petsitting now.

My parents left Saturday evening. They were planning on stopping for the night in Durham, NC. Then they were going to continue on Sunday, stopping in College Park (outside of DC) whenever they got to it. Then they'd spend the rest of the day sightseeing in DC. On Monday morning, today, they'd either leave or sight see for a few more hours and then continue on their way.
They should get to my grandparents house in NJ tonight. They may already be there. I got online several hours ago, and we have dial up, so if they called I wouldn't know. My cell phone charger hasn't arrived in the mail yet, so... (I miss it)

My sleeping is all askew. I fell asleep at like 6:30am last night. Woke up at about 1030am, and took the dogs outside because they needed to go, but then I fell back asleep. I woke up at noon, but so that I could go to the bathroom. I went back to sleep and woke up again at 6:00pm. I've been up since.

Today something excited happened though. I discovered a Christian community I am considering joining! I need to pray about it, of course.

It's an online community, but it seems to proclaim just exactly what I believe in. It is interdenominational, it embraces all Christian expression that is based in biblical Truth but also doesn't compromise on making sure the Truth is essential. It encourages you to be involved in a local church while still being involved in this community. Here is the website:


As I said, I'm praying about it.

While I was typing that my dogs went crazy with barking. So I run over and lock the front door and peep out the peephole. I see Toby the cat staring at me but nothing else... except suddenly a flash of something about the size of a large rodent runs across the ceiling of the porch.

So I put Radar, my german shepherd mix, on a leash and take him out there. Mallory, the mom cat, puffs up in a ball, but otherwise nothing seems out of the ordinary. No sign of squirrel. Also no sign of Baryon, one of the kittens.

So I put Radar back in the house and looked for Baryon, who was hiding where I thought he would be.... so then I just went inside and locked the door behind me.

So maybe there is an invader squirrel? Not sure...
