Today we resolved many little and big problems. First we finally found more kitty litter. On Friday the cleaning lady (yes,this place has a maid....it's awesome!), cleaned out the cat box and put in the small remaining amount of litter we had in the bag. On Friday we started combing the supermarkets looking for cat litter with no luck. By Saturday it was incredibly urgent.... By Sunday we added newspaper (much to my cat's dismay)... And then today we gave up on the little markets and found a pet store with bags and bags of cat litter... I've never been so happy to see the stuff!
I've also found enough candles for the last two nights of Hanukkah. I think they're really Christmas candles and I had to hand carve each one to fit in the menorah, but they'll do.
Last but certainly not least we may have found an apartment. It has three bedrooms and an amazing view of the lake. It's next to the city center and on the seventh floor. I hope we get it, we're really excited. My two youngest thought it was great, but Chloe was bothered by the unusual smells you notice when looking at city apartments. Oh well not everyone can be happy....
"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
