Well, August has been pretty eventful in the Crit household! Lucca started fourth grade at her new school and we couldn’t be more proud of her. Her cheer team won first place at competition at the end of last month and she advanced to orange belt in Taekwondo this summer too. She blows us away with her capacity for growth and her ability to retain the silliest of information while still forgetting to wear her clothes the right way. That’s nine-year-olds I guess. She’ll be ten in December and we’re just not ready for her to be growing up so fast.
Speaking of growing fast: Lucca found three abandoned kittens under our back porch this month. We waited for mom to come back around, but when she didn’t we took the babies in. It was just too hot outside to leave them. We got rid of their fleas and worms, cleaned them up and fattened them up and they are just growing like weeds! Initially we named them Hades, Zeus, and Zagreus following the trend of our older cat’s names (Poseidon and Athena), but we quickly found out that Zeus is in fact Megara, and Zagreus is Persephone. Persephone has found her forever home with a lovely cat-mom and we’re waiting to find another cat-parent for either Hades or Megara.
We are also once again annoyed to report that our AC went out. We spent about four days in sweltering heat before someone could get out to fix the issue. Thank goodness for fans and ice packs.
As many of you know we’re implementing quite a few changes to how CtrlAltCrit functions - this is due in part to a delightful rearrange of our house! We are down a roommate and didn’t feel pressured to get another anytime soon, so we have an extra room. Sean and Autumn took that room as their bedroom and the master room is now being used as an office and gaming space! All five members of the house (including Lucca) have a desk-space and it has made working on our many projects that much easier.
September will no doubt bring more positive changes to the Crit House, and hopefully some cooler weather. Until next time, we’ll see you on the internet my friends!
