The Cat Box Barometer

Every day I have a routine. 
Part of that routine is to scoop the litter box.

I have come to view this activity as a barometer of how my day will progress.
If it’s a clean, easy scoop, it will be a good day. If it’s a difficult clean up then that is how the day will be.


All day.


It reminds me of when I was a kid. I would make deals with God.

“Please, God, if you let me pass the algebra test I promise to….(insert whatever arbitrary activity seems appropriate at the time.)”

I don’t really think of myself as a superstitious person, but I guess my inner thoughts contradict this.

Do you ever use random indicators to predict your day?


  1. When I get up in the morning, know my name and can function in the shower, it's a good day.

  2. Oh so funny...do hope your days will ALL be good ones:)

  3. That made me smile... as a child I did the same.
    Now I am thankful to God for each day xx

  4. Uh, yes. If my hubby is in a good mood it'll be a good day and if not...time to get lost in reading or art. That can turn yucky days into good ones but the trick is in getting lost in them.

  5. I love it! A litterometer. I will keep this in mind tonight when I scoop ;)

  6. Oh yes. I always weigh the ingredients for my morning soup (yes. I know. I've come to accept my quirkiness.) in the pan on a digital scale. When I take it off and the weight is -(minus)666, the day will and SHALL be brilliant. I mean, -666 should be awesome, right?? Anything away from that? Sliding scale. Hahahaha :) We're weird. But weird in a good sense. Right? :)


I appreciate your comments!
