7.12 Dream - Happy Holidays

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the twelfth day of each month is "Dream."
****************************
My cat likes the smell of peppermint, so right after you brush your teeth or eat a candy cane, she is all up in your mouth like it is HER BUSINESS.  Dr. BB recently took a picture of the cat crawling up on face to Facebook with the update: Zelda REALLY likes the smell of peppermint.  My sister responded with (please forgive all the grammatical and punctuation mistakes): Zelda must not be getting much attention from NGS. She's letting her know her time is now she wants love.

Okay, look, I know I shouldn't be upset about this, but who the fuck is my sister to suggest I don't give my cat enough fucking attention?! This is why family is hard. I don't take this as teasing or even mocking of the cat, but I take it as a personal slight.  I cannot help but get defensive immediately.  It is my way.
The same house in our neighborhood that brought you the turkey brings you this Santa.
So, the holidays are here and it's a couple of weeks away before I have to leave, but I'm already dreading time with my family.  I'm going to dream of a time when I get to just stay home.
