shaydchara: dirty black keyboard with the F1 key missing (F1)
Vacation seemed like a great idea: with Nuit Blanche, my birthday, and wedding anniversary in one week, why not?

Well, on Tuesday, we got test results back for the lump in our cat's throat. I suppose it was better than finding out - while at work - that he has thyroid cancer. He's a speshul snowflake - it's extremely rare in cats.


Then on Thursday morning, something went wrong in my right foot, and I've spent the past three days with it propped up on a pillow, alternating ice and ibuprofen. Fun times for this gorgeous weekend.


Did I get any writing done? No, of course not. But I did do a bunch of knitting.

Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful (and not sarcastically) that my life is good enough that I can complain about these #firstworldproblems.

Back to work tomorrow, where I apparently need to Fix ALL the Things, as my co-workers have been missing me desperately, I was told.

March the first, already, hmm? Let's see if I can't at least do 3 things make a post.

Thing the first: After much debate and planning, we're getting a puppy. She's a four month old Pomeranian. Name is still under debate. We're picking her up on Thursday night. In preparation for introducing puppy to household with senior cat, we acquired a Feliway diffuser. So far it seems to only be confusing the cat.

Thing the second: I did a first pass at our taxes last night (on paper, because I actually don't mind doing them by hand), and due to various circumstances from last year that resulted in me overpaying the government, I'm likely to get a fairly substantial chunk of money back. This is a pleasant surprise.

Thing the third: Cyberpunk novel rewrite progesses. Spouse is proving invaluable in articulating and expanding world-building concepts that I have written intuitively. (What? We only share a brain part-time.)

...I'm sure there were other things. In fact, there were other things while I was typing, but they have escaped me again. Argh.

Oh. I still have #SFContario notes to type and post. Those need to get done before Ad Astra. Sheesh.
