Well, I've officially got whatever nasty cold Nef's been down with this week. Going to sparring anyway today was maybe not the smartest decision I've ever made, but since I knew it'd be a couple weeks until I could get to it again...

On the one hand, I did better than I expected. On the other, now I can't be sure if I'm sore and headachy because I'm sick or because I got repeatedly punched in the head and knocked down by a guy twice my size. (Still won the fight, though. And the instructor said I was turning into a superstar on them. So there's that. ^^)

As a more interesting diversion from being sick, though - a flying squirrel has moved into our attached garage/the walls of our house. I knew we had some living nearby, but we don't see much of them because they're usually really shy, besides being nocturnal.

This one, though, is the most brazen, attitude-filled little thing I've ever seen. Doesn't seem to much care who knows he's around. And Ella, our mighty, fierce huntress cat who will take down anything that moves, including rabbits nearly as big as she is, seems to have just shrugged and decided this is okay. Last night I went to give her dinner and he was right there and just... didn't leave. Scooted over a bit, and then just sat there a couple feet away. She just looked at him, then looked at me like, "Yeah, so? He's my roommate now. You gonna give me dinner, or what?"

He stayed there while I went to get her dinner and came back, like he was waiting to see if he'd get dinner too. Didn't head off to the other side of the garage until Ella practically stepped on him. She acted like he was invisible.


I mean, he's adorable. And I don't actually want him to get killed, because I love flying squirrels. But having one living in our house is probably not a good thing? Even if he hasn't done any noticeable harm yet. And. Uh. This cat is apparently going to be no help at all in figuring out what to do about it. (She killed a mouse last night and left it by the door, just to prove that she hasn't actually forgotten how to do her job.)

So... for now, we've got a kind-of-pet flying squirrel? And yet one more illustration of why our friends call us the home for confused animals.

I think I'll call him Sam.

Ugh, no to sickness!!! I'm sorry you're down with it. I think I know about 20 people who have it, and oddly, they're not 20 people *locally* but across the globe. Crazy.

Yay for sparring! I miss watching Dink do it, but if she even tries to sidekick, her sciatic nerve flares up, so that's definitely a thing of the past for her.

Pics of Sam the flying squirrel please, when you feel better?

I know, it's crazy. Seems like every time I mention it to someone I hear that they or someone in their family's been down with something similar that they just can't seem to shake. (I know, it's kinda that time of year and these things go around, but with the accumulation of everything these days it just keeps feeling like 2016 has been one big slow-motion apocalypse year with everything gradually falling to pieces. XP)

It's got to be so tough for Dink, to be forced to stop... Especially as good as she's been, it's hard to have it get shut down because your body acts up like that.

I will try to get some pics of him! It might be tricky since the lighting's generally not great out there, but he's such a cutie.

I do believe having a wild animal live comfortably among you now makes you official Disney princesses ;)

And boo to sickness :P

LOL, yep, I'm pretty sure this is what it means to arrive. (Now if we could just get him to actually help with the household chores...)

And - happy birthday! I hope it's a good one!
