I hope everyone had a great holiday!

I certainly did. It was great to see everyone. We just got back to Seattle. It was a good trip, but I’m also happy to be back to normal. I like breaks, but I always forget what day it is and I generally lose all track of time, so coming back was a good thing.

Our kitten was certainly glad to see us again. He hasn’t left alone since we got here. He has also been super talkative at all hours of the day now. I think he feels the need to tell us what he did while we were gone.

The bad part is that he’s realized how to open doors as well as drawers. The door isn’t too big of a deal because we only have one, but I usually hide stuff in the drawers so that he can’t get to it while we’re sleeping, but that isn’t going to work anymore. He just pulls it open and gets whatever he wants from inside. He’s too smart for his own good.

In other exciting news I signed up to do the Color Run this summer. I know I have plenty of time to prepare, and deadlines always help me get work done. The only problem is that I suck at running. I’m about as slow as a turtle and as elegant as a baby giraffe. If I can complete the race I will certainly feel accomplished. I don’t even feel the need to finish it fast so long as I finish it.

Anyhow, I hope your Monday is going well, and I hope you all got books for Christmas. What more could a person want?

Happy Reading.

Plans for the holidays

Hello dear Readers, 

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. I’m just letting you know that I will be traveling the next few days so my posts will be a bit erratic. 

I will try and post a few times, but I plan to be spending quite a bit of time with my family, so the posts might be just to check in.

Anyhow, I’ll try and post something in a few days.

Happy Holidays!

And…back to normal

Hello everyone,

I am glad to say that this week is over. It has flown by because I’ve been so busy, and thank you all for bearing with me. I will be posting the normal amount next week. I’m also going to try and iron out when I actually post so that things are so hectic when it comes to getting new things out.

I found out that my dog (who still lives with my parents) tore his ACL chasing after cats. He’s not the brightest bulb in the pack but he’s a dear, and I feel horrible that I won’t be able to take care of him while he heals. He was injured one other time and I took care of him then, but I feel bad that I can’t be there to help him get better. I know the recovery will take some time. I am planning on flying back for Christmas (YAY!), and his surgery isn’t until the 6th of next month. The poor thing will have to wait it out, but he does have some pretty nice pain killers that the vet gave him.

That was one reason this week has been so crazy is I was having to fight to get confirmation that I would be able to go home for Christmas. Ticket prices were not getting any cheaper, but luckily I was able to get verbal confirmation that it should be ok. Verbal confirmation is not the safest thing to buy plane tickets off of, but I decided that if something went wrong I’d say that I got confirmation and the tickets were already bought. It’s pretty dicey of me to do it that way, but it was the only way I was going to be able to afford flying home. The worst case scenario is that I don’t get the time off, but hopefully I can find someone to cover my shifts. (Crossing my fingers). My granddad used to say that if our family didn’t have bad luck we wouldn’t have any luck at all….I’m just hoping that isn’t the case in this situation.

I also want to iron out the wrinkles I’ve been having with my erratic posting,so until further notice I will be posting Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. If it turns out that I can post in between these dates then I will make every effort to do so, but for now this will be when I’ll be posting new content. On that note, if you have anything you’d like me to post about then let me know! I’m sure I have an opinion on whatever it is, and if I don’t, I’ll research it until I do!

Whew. Sorry that was so long, but I had a laundry list of things to get off my chest.

Have a great rest of your Sunday evening!
