It doesn’t seem like that, but we’ve been through major changes in our lives this summer.
Our daily routine has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but that’s not what it’s about. The changes we’ve gone through have no connection to each other, and yet…. The timing they came with was just perfect.
First, Claire agreed in February to take over the direction of her school ad interim while another principal arrived. But on March 13, the school had to close due to COVID (the school then reopened in May).
At the same time, Momo had to stay at home because of COVID as well: with everything he had, he was considered at risk. He quickly realized the benefits for his health: he could do things at his own pace, rest when he needed to, and he had much less pain in his foot.
A crazy idea began to germinate in the brains of our humans: what if Momo became a «housewife» ? After many calculations and discussions, the decision was made in April: Momo sent his resignation to the fantastic company that had always supported him. It was a difficult choice, but the priority now went to his health and quality of life.
After a few months, her new role started to please Claire, and she thought, why not me ? She had a good discussion with Momo and us, and we gave her the go-ahead. On July 1, she officially became the new principal of her school.
Moral of the story :
Life sometimes offers us opportunities at unexpected moments; it’s up to us to know how to seize them to get the best out of them.
Wow….those sound like wonderful changes!! ConCats to Claire.
Thank you for your kind words about Allie. We miss her a lot.

That was a lot of change, but everything has worked well for Claire and Momo, and of course for both of you too.
These sound like great changes! We hope all works out. And good luck to Claire in her new position.
The old adage, “when a door closes, a window opens!”

That is wonderful news, and you are all pretty smart to see an opportunity and act on it – congratulations on your new path!
Sometimes events force us to re-evaluate our routine lives. We have read of many people who are finding that, horrible as things are, “some” parts of their lives are better. When this is over and good vaccines are found, many people and businesses will decide that some changes are good.
We are glad to know that you both made great out of what started as such a disaster-wannabe.
Hope you will thrive in your new roles. Pixie and Zoro seem ‘catisfied’!
That is wonderful! I’m glad that both changes were positive in the end and worked out best for all. And congratulations on your new role!
Wow! Those are exciting changes for all of you! Congratulaions to Claire in her new role, and we’re happy Momo will be home to serve your needs all day!
Wow, what a great story. Talk about big changes. We’re glad everything worked out for y’all.
