Catch up

Today my oldest had surgery. We checked in at 6 am and were home a little afternoon. I've spent the day playing nursemaid and watching TV with my daughter. We watched Catfish and the first three episodes of The Blacklist. Love James Spader in this!

Yesterday I finished my Christmas novella Home For Christmas part of the Copper Mountain Christmas Anthology. I've been working no this story for four weeks. I'm sure they're will be revisions but it felt so good to hit send. Crossing my fingers that they like it!

This weekend I wrote. The two youngest kidlets had a swim meet, but I stayed home. The only places I went were to pick up the oldest, get food and go to Mass.

Saturday I cried. Shasta the stray cat I'd found in my backyard crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He died in his foster's arms on the way to the emergency vet. So much like Rocket.

The last time I blogged was September 26th. Since then I've been trying to recover form the icky cold that took each one of us down and writing.

That's pretty much it! How about you?

I'm glad Oldest is doing well.

Sorry to hear about Shasta.

Things here are busy and I barely have time to sleep before I have to be up to start the day again. Oh how I wish we had 3-day weekends from now on.

Yay to finishing your novella. Are you working on any other projects?

Have a good week.

You've had an exhausting year all around.

I was sorry to hear about Shasta, but at least he has some real love and attention at the end.

I hope your daughter is resting comfortably now. I'm sure you're glad that's over.

Re: Blacklist
James Spader is superb as always. It's the only show I've watch faithfully.

So sorry to hear about Shasta.

I hope everything went well with your daughters surgery! She will be back up in no time. Take care!

I hope your daughter heals quickly from her surgery. I was sorry to hear about Shasta, but, like the above commentor. At least he knew love in the end.
Great news on finishing your novella!
