This year, there aren’t regular prompts, just random prompts, so I figured I would give it a shot. My random prompt for the day:
Write the annual holiday brag letter for your family.
This has been an eventful year for the Maryland Sullivans. Still a family of three, they continue to impress with their kindness and talent, as well as their ability to leave their fur on everything that comes within striking distance. (This includes the human, who manages to leave long red hairs everywhere.)
This year, Pippin remains on his doctor recommended diet, but he is a fan of the concept of “Go big or go home,” so he remains big. And at home. He’s not great at the concept. But that just means there’s more of him to love. He also continues to work on his singing skills. When visitors arrive, he gleefully sings them the song of his people. He also enjoys going outside and gnawing on the plants in the landscaping. His war with the dove pair is ongoing, as they continue to peer at him through the window and he continues to growl at them. Other birds are viewed more kindly, but those doves clearly wronged him and he will get his revenge.
Cadu continues to lament his brother’s weight loss plan as it often means fewer snacks for him. However, he is skilled enough to jump onto the counter (much to his brother’s dismay) so he occasionally gets extra treats there. He spends his day following the sunbeams around the house. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. Now that the Christmas Tree has once again returned to the living room, he sacrifices some sunbeam time for hours spent sleeping under the tree and occasionally gnawing on its (synthetic) branches. It’s a holiday tradition, after all.
The breadwinner of the family continues to fill up her days with work, friends, and ridiculous fitness pursuits. She writes a blog, so you’ve probably heard this all before. After all, her blog is ridiculously popular (oh wait…). In 2015, she aimed for quality over quantity, and the race results prove that it was a worthwhile pursuit. No new race distances for her this year, but 2016 will involve her most ridiculous race yet. For Christmas, she’s really hoping for some uninterrupted sleep, but somehow, sharing a bed with two cats leaves little room for her and she’s often woken up by a large furbeast trying to steal her pillow. They are furry little jerks, but they are family.
