The Boot. An update…

2016-01-25 11.27.402016-01-25 11.27.552016-01-25 11.28.10

So, since my last post, I’ve been to the bone specialist. Come to find out, I have not only fractured two bones in my foot, but I have broken another one as well.

 

So I have been BOOTED. UGH. This thing is a monstousity. Granted, I chose it over getting an uncomfortable cast that I wouldnt be able to take off for bed or bath.

 

Walking in this thing is something I dont recomment. I have nearly doubled my bodily injury since getting it put on this morning.

 

So, while I am convelsing, I had to decide what to do with my time while I get waited on by my lovely child. NOT. I really have just put a bunch of snacks and drinks in here in my office. The only challenge is potty time…lol.

 

I have broken out my stress relieving coloring books! I am also writing a little more, but mostly for my RP games.

 

Lookit my colors!!

So, I’m going to go color some more now. I’ll likely be blogging really weird things when the pain killers kick in. πŸ˜›

What I'll be doing…2016

ME

I’ve made my decision on what I’ll be doing with most of 2016. Dont worry, I’ll still be blogging my weirdness, short stories and cat stuff…but after taking a few online courses in 2015, I’ve decided that 2016 will be the year I get myself even more educated.

I’ve enrolled in several courses and different fields of study that interest me. I’m looking forward to this endeavor. Oh, I’m sure by the second week I’ll be sitting in front of my computer or laptop crying and snotting, asking myself ‘why, oh why, did you do this?’.Β  πŸ˜€

However, these courses I’ve chosen are going to be very beneficial to my writing and opening new doors in my creative style and knowledge on the things I want to put in my book.

Also, as recommended by several people for my depression and anxiety, I’ve gotten myself a butt-load of those stress relieving coloring books. Mostly cats and carousel horses. And I already have an impressive collection of tools to color them with. Water colors, brush markers, colored pencils, markers…I mean, literally bags of materials…the artist bags with the little elastic things to keep each pencil, marker, pen, etc., seperate from another, and then the whole thing either zips up or rolls up.

Some books are designed for specific coloring materials. I think it will help me through some of my stresses. At least, I hope so.

So, my darlings, I’ll be back tomorrow evening to tell you all about my lovely day of probably getting sucked into the Netflix Vortex of Doom. I got hooked watching the Hannibal series again. ~sighs~

Reaching decisions for the New Year…

Well, with my ongoing depression and lack of motivation for damn near anything, I have decided that my latest novel, the sequel to The Road of Darkness, will be put on hold.

I have it nearly completed, but, I’m not enthusiastic about it.

So for the time being, I will be working on it when the mood strikes, and I will be blogging more instead, as well as keeping detailed daily journals and working on my little short stories. I may even toss you guys some smut snippets. Everyone loves the smut, right?

So, to all who have been anticipating The Path of Redemption, I am truly sorry for the set back. You can produce a good story if you are not feeling it. Thats my belief, anyway.

In the meantime, prepare yourselves for the antic of my cats, my kid, and the general tomfoolery I find myself on (completely on accident, mind you)

Thank you so much to all of you, and there are some of you I have a special rapport with… dont think this means I will stop pestering you!!!

Much love and squishes to you all, and a Good New Years to you…

~squishes more and drools a little~


LAND SHARK!!!

So, I spoil my cats. Yes, I know, crazy cat lady thing. And even though technically Jeffrey is my daughters cats, he spends more time with me and I look at him as mine as well.

 

So, I indulged the new baby, BaxterMarie, and my grandbabykitty Jeffrey with new presents for each.

 

Behold…LAND SHARKS!!!

 

 

 

Now, at first, Jeffrey was content to just chill and sleep in his. BaxterMarie had other ideas, however. She kept pouncing on his and smooshing the side in. She was more interested in the fins and stuff.

 

But now, as you can see, she is sleeping snuggly warm in hers.

 

The two cats are getting closer day by day. It was a big break through when Jeffrey finally let BaxterMarie cuddle with him for a nap.

 

Today, for the first time, he groomed her. Oh, she didnt like it one bit, because Jeffrey seems to have a fascination with her little feets. He put her in a strangle hold and was like ‘look here, you lil snot, you must smell like me…I shall bathe you and you will like it!’. It was funny to watch.

 

They are currently over at my laptop desk in the chair fighting. I hear BaxterMarie give a little squeak every once in awhile and have to tell Jeffrey to be gentle. He backs off and minds me well. He’s a good boy.

 

And BaxterMarie is just a little darling. More often than not she is right here on my desk cuddled against me. And when not cuddling, she is playing with her multitude of toys. I had given the cats most of ChesterAnn’s (Fat Cat) toys. They each have their favorites.

 

On another note, its Thanksgiving here in the US and I dont care. I mean, not to be ugly or anything, but I’m just not a big holiday sort. I try to do something nice for Christmas only for the sake of my daughter,and this year, I am not bothering with the tree or anything. I got her a few gifts already, and that will be that.

 

Other news…I have a horrific cold. I know it was brought about by the weather. It was nice here, 80’s, then it dropped down into the 40’s, then it rained and got humid again, and now the temps are back up. The moisture in the air has probably been playing havoc with my lungs, and you all know I have COPD. Blah. So, I am extremely tired and trying to stay on top of things with cold meds and whatnot, while also not laying down much to keep the fluid from settling and building in my lungs. SO…TIRED.

 

NaNoWriMo is winding down. I have REALLY enjoyed being a Municipal Liaison. I will do it next year, and years to come, hopefully. My word counts have been good and steady and I’m still not finished with everything I want to write. I will admit I have been working my book like a movie is filmed…out of sequence. When I have a great idea for a particilar chapter, I work on it and perfect it, getting it down while its fresh in my head, then doing a completely different thing when it strikes me.

 

In the gaming world, things are as depressing as ever. No one to write with. And I tried to use one of my old characters to do a little train of thought type of thing on the situation of the ‘city’ and its inhabitants from her perspective. I was trolled majorly bad, or, well, my character was…it still doesnt make you feel worth a damn.

 

I got my new laptop in, thanks to my mommy. I unboxed it, but have yet to set it up and turn it on to get things how I want them. I am just too tired and have no drive.

 

I know the girls at the coffee shop will be glad to see me on a more regular basis once again. They are always asking why I dont come in to write anymore.

 

My old laptop isnt completely dead, its still good for some things. It lasted me a good while, and I put it through some abuse. Its just obsolete now. And even with a new battery, it wont hold a charge. It always has to be plugged in and that is a major inconvenience. Especially for using MSWord. It seems to drain my battery life incredibly fast.

 

But, that will be a thing of the past now, with the shiny new laptop. And I will take extra special care of it.

 

My next major purchase will be a new computer. Just the tower. I have a great monitor set-up, great keyboard and mouse, great webcam. And I can strip the blu-ray player from this tower to put in a new one. I am really good about making use of things.

 

I think, however, that this desktop is going to last me a good while longer. Everything on it works great. I just replaced the video card and put in a new hard drive, and added the max RAM, so its fast and smooth. Its just a little…ugly…lol. No, not really. It still looks sleek and all, you can just tell its an older model. I’ve had it over 6 years now.

 

Well, I’m just a chatty Cathy today, arent I? You’ve fallen asleep, havent you? If not, you are now lulled into a nice mood to take a nap. πŸ˜›

 

Happy Food Coma day to all you US folk.
