My time at the cat house was all too short - and it was harder this time as I was not able to stay over as much - but because I lived nearby, and my husband was recovering from major heart surgery, I had to keep two households happy. I would rush to the cat house in the morning and feed the cat, and later in the day go back again for the evening meal. And never forget the two fish - they needed their daily feed.
In he midst of all of this I had an offer to teach English in Korea. It really was a rush to do all I had to do, and in the end, I did choose to go to Korea, so I watch as my daily report of house sitting opportunities come through from my little apartment in downtown Jeon Ju in Korea, and wait for my time here to pass.
