  • Much stuff happened this weekend, but none of it involved getting a new vehicle. Looks like I’m homebound for another week.
  • If you haven’t been over to my new blog lately, you should go by and check it out. The latest post is a guest article from my blog buddy (and published author) Sarah Stockton, who gives advice on how to work through negative messages.
  • My oldest went to her first school dance. 6th grade seems a little young, but they treated it as a sort of masquerade, with prizes for the best costumes. She wore a fancy dress and a boa and big, blingy sunglasses and went as a starlet. I made her hair into a Veronica Lake and let her wear eyeliner and red lipstick. She got so many compliments that now she expects to be able to wear eyeliner every day. Um, no.
  • Our kitty cat disappeared Thursday, and we found her on Saturday—in a hollow log where she had died. Getting her out of the log took some doing, but finally we buried her in the pet cemetery with Marmalade and Slippers. I was glad we at least knew what had happened to her, but I’m sad that we put her at risk by adopting her as a kitten. I thought the curse of the Yard of Death was over, but apparently not.
  • My latest obsession is personality typing.
  • I haven’t felt much like Internetting, but a lot like writing. All my creative energy is going to the new blog and the new novel, and I have very little to spend on others’ blogs, so I hope you’ll forgive me if I’m a little spare in my commenting.

  1. I'll forgive you if you forgive me. Between the job, the edits, and the potential NEW books, I'm slammed. I've been scarce too.

    So... yeah.

  2. Best personality book I ever read was called Personality Plus by ... ... Florence Littauer. *thank you Google!*

    Also a book on birth order by Dr Kevin Lehman was really informative too, about personalities.

    Sorry about your non-new car are your kitty. :( I don't know how old she was, but I'm sure her years with you were good and loving ones. :)


  3. that *are* your kitty should be *and*

    Stupid crazy self-typing typos!

  4. Theresa was just about a year old. I just wish I knew what was killing the cats. She didn't have any marks on her, so...*shrugs*

    I took the Myers Briggs (INJF) and the Eannagram (possibly 9).

    Knyt, we'll forgive each other on 3...1,2,3. You're forgiven. :)

  5. There is a long list of plants that are poisonous to cats.(Google) You might to check and see if you have any in your yard. Also I don't know how much it cost but you could have a necropsy done so you know what is happening.

  6. Jyme, I never thought of poisonous plants! I assumed they were being carried off by predators or hit by cars, even though I never once found a body in the street. I also considered the possibility that one of my neighbors was poisoning them, though they are all animal lovers. My neighbor's cats disappear at a slower rate, and they are off the road, while we live right on the corner. My other neighbor gardens and has lots of different plants in her yard. Hm, something to think about.
