Le Groan

I don’t want to be up, but I don’t have any choice.  Don’t get me wrong here, it isn’t the bratz that have made me feel this way, although they could have helped more. mini-graphics-snoopy-712196 I had a hospital run to make with one of the bros. dog5 He is a little under the weather. nervous-934 It will be just a matter of time before I have to go and pick him back up. Smiley-Begging Do things like this ever happen during the day? smiley-confused005 I am thinking not often. AddEmoticons04274 Meanwhile, I believe every bone in my body is aching… yes, I am grouchy, as Thena just found out when she began to use the footstool for a scratchpad. AddEmoticons04247 She knows better too. cat 54

How did the bratz take the sudden loss of mama in the night? cat 45 Not well, from what I noticed. cat 54 Thena ran around in circles as I slipped out through the doorway, and she was meowing. cat 39 Tath, you ask? cat 28 He sat on the chair in the entrance and called, mama, mama. cat 44 They weren’t impressed with the loss of all the body heat in the bed, not that it is all that cold yet, but you can feel it coming, slowly. cat 50

How is the typing coming, now that ‘Final Contact’ has been written? AddEmoticons04264 I have 7 chapters left to go and I am finished transferring them onto the computer from its written form. AddEmoticons0423 Words count, you ask?  So far a little over 81,000, so you know it is going over the 90,000 word count for sure. AddEmoticons04231 Am I surprised, not.  I have even begun ‘People of the Phoenix’.  I am into the second chapter on that one. AddEmoticons04263 I will type out 2 of the 7 chapters on ‘Final Contact’, and then sit back and finish writing the second chapter of the other story. AddEmoticons04274 I am happy to say it is supposed to be a short one. AddEmoticons04258 When I have finished my typing, I will set the second story aside, unless I am too heavy into it, and rework ‘Final Contact’. AddEmoticons04237 It is then going to be set aside for a while before going into the editing pile, as I don’t want to get too far ahead on that file. smiley-happy120

Tath and Thena are taking this all in stride,cat 22 they haven’t really let me out of their sight willingly since I returned from Ottawa. cat 53 10-16-27 I set up my vanity to use as a desk in the living room (yes, I can do this as I live alone.) and they sit in my favourite chair and nap as I type. AddEmoticons00950-1 If I sit in the chair and put my feet up, they are on me.  It doesn’t matter if I am writing at that point, they are there like small fur blankets.  Works better for me in winter than in summer I have to admit.  cat 26

I seem to have a vague memory of telling everyone that I would relay the stories about them that I heard about their attitude during my absence this summer.  I would say they had their little kitty noses out of joint. cat 54 They had their nails clipped, and shredded those who did the job.  It is getting that if someone brings out those clippers, they know what is about to happen. cat 45 You have to drag them out of whichever corner of the linen closet, closet. they chose to hide in, wrap them in a thick towel, and still watch how much blood you get on them as they bite and scratch your hands. cat 32 No one wants to do their nails anymore.  I know they won’t let me close to those paws with the clipper… Thena is known to bite hard enough to draw blood, not hers, and no, they don’t lose a drop of their own. cat 53 10-16-27 Even the vet won’t touch them unless she puts them under, the little scraps of misery. dd27 Other than that, Tath hid in the linen closet until I came home, unless he needed to eat or go to the washroom. cat 54 Thena kept him company. cat 50 The report I received was not glowing, to say the least.   When I got home, one greeted me by running around in circles non-stop, meowing, while the other came running from the linen closet calling, mama-mama.  cat 36

Well, it is back to the typing board for me now. 6088880143_491c2e2e67_s I will see how long it takes me to get these 2 chapters done and the new chapter finished, maybe then I can sneak in a short nap… not likely, but a girl can dream, right? AddEmoticons04279 Until next weekend, have a great long weekend.  Who knows, maybe I will even be finished reworking ‘Final Contact’ by then.1317309lsk5aj07xu (Not likely, but fairytales do come true, right?) AddEmoticons04225 22-31-36

    Wow, the Dynamic Duo aren’t going to let you go anywhere anymore. Going to get harder to get their nails clipped since they go crazy like that-yikes!! I hope your brother is ok and it’s nothing serious!! sending prayers! If you can, try to take a nap, it’s Saturday after all. Final Contact is going to be a nice size book. 🙂

    I don’t blame them for not wanting to get their nails clipped. Have had some blood loss when mine have been done, LOL Went to see the leaves in the canyon’s today but they haven’t started changing yet. I am either to late of to early. LOL Loved the blog.
