sheep shorn Benjamin
well, here he is...shorn and soft. mama says he's extra cuddly, probably because he's a little cold. if he'd put up with a sweater (or maybe a pink bathrobe), he'd be toasty!
mama says that ben's extra soft. she had to promise him that she wouldn't rub against his fur, even though it feels so good. it's kind of irritating to ben.
mama hasn't been on to write because life has been hectic and hard. she's been working and sleeping. feeding us and cuddling us, too.
last night, she built a fire (not really that cold, but since there isn't a fireplace in the new place, she wants to use this one as much as she can. a fake fireplace will work, but it is--after all--fake). i sat on one leg, and ben sat on the other. all three of us were toasty warm.
the packing will start next weekend. neither mama nor dad wants to do the work, but it's one of those chores that doesn't go away just because they want it to. i'm glad i don't have opposable thumbs! in fact, i'll stay under the bed while they pack.
