Sometimes a change of scene makes all the difference.

This past week two other wormen in my family and I traded spaces.

While Kimberly and her fiance enjoyed a Hawaii vacation,

I pet sat their French Bulldogs Hurley and Mitzer.

At the same time, Shelagh and her son T.K. left her husband in charge

of their house and pets Nina (chocolate lab), Bat Cat and Morris (cats)

and stayed in my cottage with my cats Matt and Cinders.

We’re all back home again, with batteries recharged

and a new appreciation for our own sanctuaries.
