So, apparently, even though I was apparently complaining of how we couldn’t get Cat fixed, we got Cat fixed. *facepalm*
Husband is most wonderful, and I love him, but I wish that I had more than twelve hours notice that he made plans to have Cat taken in for the procedure, especially because he didn’t have to take her himself. I’ve not had much sleep, and it threw me off my plans for the day, but there you are.
I really should be sleeping right now instead of typing this up to share with y’all, but I also didn’t want to run the risk of missing another day. Taking a moment to come up with a target and jot out a little something for this blog has become a comfort, even though I haven’t been doing it for long.
I actually do have a rant or two, as well as a few rational topics, in the planning stages, but for now you will get whatever comes to mind when I set my fingers to keys.
Also, if you wouldn’t mind, keep Cat in your thoughts. She seems to be doing well, but she’s been grumpy, and she’s quite sore. I’m hoping she’ll heal quickly and with no complications. (Especially since she keeps trying to hide under the dresser, which was her favorite spot as a kitten, but she’s not really small enough to do it anymore.)
I’ve been thinking of writing something substantial for quite a while. Last year, I almost committed to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), but I felt too insecure and couldn’t bring myself to actually try. I’ve also thought about doing a comic book or a graphic novel, but my art skills are very sad and sorry for anything that I would hope was taken seriously on an adult level. But my nieces are my life, even though one hasn’t been delivered yet. So,I’m thinking about writing a children’s book for them.
Niece One is sweet and lovely, but has had developmental issues much like her uncle (my baby brother). Those issues are ADHD and Asperger’s Syndrome. Niece Two hasn’t been born, yet, as I mentioned before, but I’ve already given her a nickname to match her sister’s.
With that in mind, I’m thinking to work out an outline that has my two girls as the main characters, hopefully written in such a way that One will appreciate it for a while before Two takes it over and enjoys it for a bit. I say hopefully, because I have absolutely no idea how to do that.
I can commit words to page, but I haven’t really written anything that was meant to be taken seriously outside of school papers and one fanfiction in the last seven years. I took a fiction course in college, and the professor promptly managed to make me feel all of two centimeters tall with very little effort. (I apparently suffer from an acute case of abject-realism.)
But somehow, I still want to write something. If I actually manage to start pulling something together, then there might be something about it here, because I am not one of those people who can keep things to themselves for too long.
