A Day in the Life

Saturday, March 1, 2014

So it's Saturday -- day 6 of Jen's 7 posts in 7 days challenge. Today I thought it might be fun to show you what it is Snicks' life looks like on any given day. Basically because I'D like to know what his life looks like. He's here alone every day for several hours while I'm at work and doing whatever, so who the heck knows what he does?!

I should add a disclaimer here that today was an odd day at our house. I got it in my head that I just have too much STUFF. Like I am being suffocated by my stuff (more on that later), so I decided to spend the day cleaning out my closets and things. Well, that's how the idea started anyways. Somewhere around 12:30 p.m. "cleaning out my closets" became "rearranging furniture in two rooms, including moving two bookshelves around multiple times and almost breaking my foot." Snicks is not a huge fan of change, but he is also incredibly nosy - I guess the nice word is "curious" - so he doesn't want to be involved in change but he also wants to know what's going on. A conundrum.

Without further ado, I give you Snicks: A Day in Photos

Friday night, 10:10 p.m. - Snicks in one of his favorite spots: under my bed. This is where he sleeps, but also where he sometimes hangs out. I think it's because it's dark, so it's like a burrow to him. Also, sidenote, I know you are probably thinking that looks like helluva mess under there, and you wouldn't be wrong. A couple years back I lost Snicks... and subsequently found him INSIDE my box spring. He had ripped a hole in the lining and climbed up and was hanging out. I only knew this because a little lump was hanging down from the boxspring lining. While this wasn't a PROBLEM per se, I did worry that if there was a fire or something I wouldn't be able to get him out, so I ripped out the lining. Hence, the mess you're viewing.

Friday night, 10:59 p.m. - Definitely one of Snicks other favorite places to hang out. Well, I guess I could say it was at the time. The living room now looks slightly different! :)

Friday night, 11:56 p.m. - ...and he's back.

Saturday morning, 1:01 a.m. - He must visit here hourly.

8:11 a.m. - No this photo is not a mis-print. This is the best shot of this I can get. This is what he does EVERY morning. I get up and open the bedroom door, and he shoots through the door like a bat out of hell. Seriously. Without fail. Every morning. Also, it's funny, you can actually accidentally trick him it's morning time. Heehee. If I go to bed at, say, 11 p.m. then get up at 11:30 to get a drink of water and open the door, he'll shoot out! Then I have to say - no, Snicks, it's not morning. And he'll come back.

9:24 a.m. - This is Snicks' little wonderland. Behind the chair in the living room is his little towel, his best friends (shoeboxes) and some toys he never, ever plays with.

9:29 a.m. - Classic move. This is a shot into the living room from the kitchen. I can almost guarantee that ANYTIME I'm in the kitchen, I can turn around, and there he'll be. He'll never, ever actually come IN the kitchen, he'll just hover at the doorway. Why? Anna in kitchen = treat for Snicks.

9:31 a.m. - ...and he probably thinks that because it's true. Snacking on his apple.

11:19 a.m. - Helping me with the great purge.

11:20 a.m. - Done helping.

12:42 p.m. - Behind the chair again.

1:17 - Nosiness wins. Comes to see what's up.

1:44 p.m. - Comes across a copy of "Finding God's will For Your Life"...

1:46 p.m. - ...loses interest in God's will for his life.

2:07 p.m. - Discovers his own interest in chewing carpet.

3:44 p.m - We call this "meatloaf." It's a certain way he lays. He looks like meatloaf.

5:11 p.m. - No clue. Walked in and found him chilling.

5:45, 5:46, 5:48, 5:50, 5:53, 5:55, 5:56, 5:57, 5:58 and 5:59 p.m. - Repeatedly physically removed from under the chair where he's trying to chew carpet.

 9:17 p.m. - Cheating on his best friend shoebox with his other two bros, lamb and rabbit who is not Snicks.

 9:53 p.m. - ...and we've come full circle. Night!

10:01 p.m. - Just kidding... he heard Ghostbusters was on and just can't say no to that Slimer. (And judging from his eyes, also wants to join the cast.)
