I will survive

Groaning as I fall out of bed and crawl along the floor like a slug..dog5. yeah, its fall..6088880143_491c2e2e67_s. love the season, hate the effect it has on these bones..fever-and-sick. the cats (no longer kittens) don’t care. CatSmiley21 You can tell that because one is attacking the other on the top of the bed and the both of them are stalking the other with arched tails..cat 53 10-16-27. yes, they are having a blast, me?  AddEmoticons04264Not so much, as they found every aching joint in my body with those tiny feet.  cat 26 One pounces at the other and misses,cat 39 the bed and all, cat 36three guesses where it lands, and the first two guesses don’t count. AddEmoticons04268 Yup, you got it, first try and I knew you would, as I continue to rise to head for the washroom as quickly as my legs will take me…AddEmoticons04274 trust them to find the most vulnerable spot on me at the moment. AddEmoticons04279 (not that the cold floor hadn’t already had a profound effect on my bladder a few seconds ago.)  I come out of the little girls room and the children are at the post, and off..cat 53. warning, the sign flashes in my head..cat 32. never close a door on a romping cat, you will find the rest of the house trashed in the two seconds it took to do what you had to do.  cat 28

Yes, closing a door on the dynamic duo can be an experience. cat 45 I think of the one that leads into the porch attached to the house. cat 36 They love to get into there, and I can’t say I blame them, but it is a no-no. cat 3 Little brother’s antique lamps are in there and there are many movable parts on it, beginning with tassels and moving downward.  cat 53 I doubt if I have to explain this, we all know what young cats are like with anything that moves when touched. cat 26 The only thing more interesting in a wadded up ball of paper, thrown in frustration. cat 47 (Cat toys seem to come secondary to most anything else) cat 50 Nothing is sacred, including my hair it seems, as I find out when I clean the litter pan. cat 3 (Makes me wonder what the back of my head looks like.)AddEmoticons04240

I am over half way through the reworking of ‘Into the Demons Lair’,SnoopyDance yes, I know, it should have been done… I have been lazy, but my job list needs attending too. AddEmoticons04274 I figure that when it gets to exceed 2 pages it is time to wean it down… what does my body and mind want to do?AddEmoticons04233  You guessed it… there is this nice comfy bed, with a warm feather blanket on it that is calling my name. 84 I figure I should finish trashing my manuscript by the end of tomorrow night, if I am lucky, or Tuesday, if I am not. smiley-bounce016 Then it goes to Eniko for first stage edits.musical_snoopy_ani-vi

I have good news for my U.S. followers who ordered signed copies, MSN-Emoticon-143they will be headed South in approximate 10 days. AddEmoticons04262 Big bro phoned last night to say they are booked to go South with their big rigs and the packages will be with them. Woohoo. clicking-your-heels-smiley-emoticon I have another thing in the works to take care of problems like this. Smiley-Begging I am getting book plates made up to send people who are ordering books and want them signed. smiley-happy120 It may seem like cheating a little, but it will save everyone money in the long run. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon Anyone with a paperback book who would like them signed … send me the transaction number through my contact, FB messaging on my FB wall, or however suits you, and I will send you a book plate to attach to the title page inside the book, personalized and signed. AddEmoticons04258 10-25-31 Most companies like B&N and Amazon will ship your book for free, thus eliminating the freight charges.super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon

After I am finished the reworking, I am going to take a breather to do a little reading on my own,snoopy-emoticon-001 the month of October is mine to play in, snoopy-emoticon-002November I am going to work on ‘Hunter’s Challenge’, which is developing very well in my mind and I believe I should be able to get done before Christmas..th_snoopylinus_ani. wish me luck.851583_434480319982268_1738424198_n

I am hearing a tiny voice, yelling for help in the other room,addemoticons00932 22-11-37 time to go to the rescue..nervous-934. I wonder what she got into this time..AddEmoticons04236 10-17-45. with that in mind..AddEmoticons04259 10-08-34. I am gone… and until next weekend… have a good one. AddEmoticons0425

    LOL, sure hope you aren’t going bald Mary Ann 🙂 Doesn’t surprise me that the Dynamic Duo likes to play with anything but their toys. I had that when I had my cat. He loved playing with the tabs from the milk bottle. The cheapest things made him happy and so much for his nice toys!! So HAPPY you are going to finally get some reading in-you deserve this time off-you have worked your butt off. Give the Dynamic Duo a hug for me-have a great weekend. 🙂

    Gotta love those bratz. Know what you mean about the fall aching of the body . No fun. Happy Dancing here to know the books will be coming south and I think your idea of the book plates is a really good one. Lifted my spirit as usual .
