My daughters had an intervention with me. Said when we move, I can't go all jungle crazy.
And though I've been scouring the thrifty nickel for kittens, I am going to have to bypass pets. I went to dinner on Friday and in discussing my future plans, I realized that I truly do want to just bounce around when my children graduate and (as my friend Joe says) "live interesting lives elsewhere." I can't bring pets and plants into my life now 'cause I'd have to get rid of them later:(
