Responsibility: It's Just A Kitten?

As you read on Tuesday your MatchGirl and I have a new addition to our family. We adopted a kitten from the local shelter.

This has me thinking about responsibility. 

There is a lot to be said on the topic.

Here is my take.

Responsibility is hard, it is often not taking the easy route, it is also something that is very important when others are involved. 
Responsibility means sometimes you have to come straight home because someone (Kitten, not Girlfriend) needs to be let out of her day-prison (the bathroom, only until she becomes acquainted with our home).

Responsibility also means setting aside money for a rainy day instead of buying bike stuff.
Responsibility means putting the well being of the whole ahead of one's self. I can safely safe I've reached this point in my life.

I might be painting an ugly picture of myself but, yes, these are things that have come to mind just this week. I have been an irresponsible person at times in my life. As I get older, I realize this is not the way one acts when they care about and want someone to share a life with them or take care of a little helpless creature. 

It could be said that I should have reached this point years ago and I wont argue with that. Except to say: I didn't. I guess, better late then never.

I know I've got some catching up to do but I truly want to be where I am, with the person (and kitten) I'm there with. Here's to the next stage...
