I've been blog absent for the last few days. Not because there weren't good things happening but more because I couldn't think of them at the end of the day when so much less than appreciated stuff occurred.
Today though was much better. Ky's vet appointment not only cost less than I had budgeted but more importantly the vet suggested we hold off surgery until the Fall. The lumps are growing quickly but they're most likely benign. We can leave them so that Ky can enjoy the summer. He does like to swim down at the lake. So we're going to do that.
My mom is doing better now that she's in the hospital and getting IV antibiotics. It's much less of a worry.
On the writing front, I finished the edits on Casey's story. Wheee. I also looked at a ridiculous number of photos from five years ago. The more things change the more they stay the same.
I rewrote a scene for the horror story. There was a good suggestion to flip that scene around so I did while I picked up milk and bananas. It will be even better once I put it onto paper.
AND - I found the outline for the North Carolina nymph romance. What a relief. I'll have no excuse when I'm at the writers retreat next week. Every day will be filled with good things. I'll be surrounded by amazing women (and a husband or two) who write, support writers, read books. I anticipate a significant amount of laughter to go with the profound thoughts, brilliant stories and wine.
Tonight it will storm so I don't have to water the garden. I'm charging all the electronic devices now so we're good to unplug everything. It's nice to have fairly reliable weather forecasts.
Now if only I could stop stress eating. At least the cookies and squares are gone.
