I am relearning what it is like to have young life in the house, AddEmoticons04280and it isn’t pretty. AddEmoticons04279 Wash a dish, take kitten off the counter, dry a dish, take kitten off the counter, open fridge, take what is needed out, take kitten out of fridge, close fridge while you hold her. AddEmoticons04264 Go to the washroom, guard the opening of your clothing,AddEmoticons04267 and even them watch, or you could be trying to put on furry underwear. cat 53 Turn television on, go get kitten off the piano,AddEmoticons04274 sit down to watch commercial,AddEmoticons04263 get up, go get kitten off the tall china cabinet, go back to different commercial, go get kitten off the piano, return to different commercial. AddEmoticons04268 Find out you missed the show you wanted to watch. AddEmoticons04279 Oh well, was probably duller than taking kitten off the furniture anyway. smiley-confused005 This, of course does not include the dozens (hundreds) of times she brings pompoms to you to toss and play with, she loves to play fetch.AddEmoticons04231 10-25-25

Writing has become a bit of a challenge amongst all of this,AddEmoticons04240 22-18-24 and me with 5 novels in her head waiting to get out, Oy. AddEmoticons04236 10-01-50  She wants to be held while I write,AddEmoticons00935 well, she is learning that Snoop had to settle for curling up on a blanket beside me. cat 22 (Of course you realize that only works for her when she is tired, and then she wants to be held.) AddEmoticons00926 Granted, she is smaller and lighter than Snoop,dd27 who eventually got his way a good portion of the time anyway.AddEmoticons00916  What am I going to do when the second one gets here?addemoticons00935 22-24-21 AddEmoticons00949

Tath is going through final stages of preparation to be moved from the Cattery. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon He has one lesson to go through, clearing throat as I say this, Scared_smileyand then he needs to heal before brother and his wife pick him up. clicking-your-heels-smiley-emoticon Should be interesting, the cat care box has been packed at this end already. smiley-confused005 Cat carrier, check. giving-thumbs-up-winking-smiley-emoticon Cat food, check. AddEmoticons0423 Blanket to lay on, check. smiley-happy120 Cover for cat carrier, in case it is windy outside, check. AddEmoticons04267 Pompom, check. cat 47 Stuffy toy, 28  Should cover things, right?  cat 44They are going to have the litter pan and contents with them before I give them this box, so I am covered.AddEmoticons0424 20-55-10

Notice there are 2 interviews going up over the next few days… – with Mitchel and Synric.  AddEmoticons04231 10-25-25Then on Monday, the review is coming up for ‘First Contact’ on The Reading Cafe. AddEmoticons04259 13-25-14 Should be interesting to see what Barb had to say about it. AddEmoticons04240 22-18-24 The pre-order is up everywhere that my books are usually sold, even the paperback is listed. AddEmoticons04235 We are cooking.  AddEmoticons04262 21-08-33

I have to get back to business and type out some more of the writing I have done on ‘Integration’ AddEmoticons04225 I have 4 chapters to type out, which could take me close to the 67,000 word count. (Or approximately 80% mark on the book.)  AddEmoticons04260Morganna has ‘For the King and Elven Empire’, which she is doing edits on.  AddEmoticons04237That will be back approximately at the end of the month, then it goes to Candy. MSN-Emoticon-143 Sarah is finishing off the polishing of Marious’ Story, then that will be uploaded for changes to the available copy by Becca.MSN-Emoticon-036  She will probably get King’s Champion done before the end of the month. smiley-bounce016 I will be happy to see the finishing touches done properly.AddEmoticons04258

Today is Teresa’s sweet 16 Birthday party, musical_snoopy_ani-viwhich I had to miss because my van is in the shop being fixed.  AddEmoticons04279Sigh.  I hope they have a blast either way. SnoopyDance The Elves are grumbling, they would have enjoyed playing pool. AddEmoticons0424 (Just as well that they didn’t go though, they cheat).  MSN-Emoticon-155

Well, I better get back to business here, sacando-la-lengua14I have a chapter to finish off and 4 to type out. AddEmoticons04268 Hoping that by the end of the month I will have ‘Integration’ in Eniko’s hands for first edit and doing the finishing touches on ‘Surrounded by the Light’. AddEmoticons04237 I can then go into the Elven lands for a few months, while I write ‘Tratchars’, etc.  You never know what is going to happen there.851583_434480319982268_1738424198_n  Until next week, have a good one.

    Wow when Tath gets there it is going to be a three ring circus for sure! Maybe some of the elves could help kitty wrangling?
