Busy Dandelyon

Yesterday started with a trip to the vet--one of our cats developed nasty black stuff coming from his eye, so we took him in, and the other older cat, just for a check-up, and the kitten we're keeping. Amitiel has an eye infection; the other cat seemed fine to the vet; the kitten is female after all, and has ear mites. And it was no surprise that there was some evidence of fleas. So now all the cats have been treated with the stuff that kills both fleas and ear mites, and we have to put antibiotic gel in Ami's eye for ten days.

We had planned to go to Pride Fest after that (Well, originally we'd planned to go instead of that, but black stuff around the kitty's changed our plans) but My Angel started to feel ill at the v et's. So I ended up doing house work and starting a painting, since I kept going back and forth as to what to do with the story I'm working on. And the yard work we'd planned to do didn't get done.

Today we did get to Pride Fest, and I found some jewelry to match one of my work outfits, and we got a new Celebrate Diversity bumper sticker, so the not even "new to us" car could once again have a proper rainbow on it. Then we got back in time to do just a little lawn mowing before darkness and rain fell at the same time.

I finally got word on the story that the music-theme anthology was holding; the editor said he finally had to admit he had only so much room in the book, and he hopes he'll see it in some other publication very soon. So, it's out again to a different editor, and I'm hoping he gets his wish. Oh, well, I'm really pleased with the story, and it wouldn't exist if I wasn't hoping to get into that anthology, so I'm still ahead. Disappointed, but still ahead.

Now it's time to head to bed. This week I start the three month temp job full time. So, naturally, this week we have another Torn World Muse Fusion.

I love the creative challenge, but it's not as much fun when I can't even start until I'm tired from a very full, very busy day at work and have to get to bed in time to be rested for another very full busy day at work. And this job is a very busy job. So I don't know how much I'll be able to write before I have to head to bed.

Still, I'd love to hear from each of you as to what brand-new Torn World things you're most interested in reading.

You're welcome to tell me other stuff you want to see, too.

I'm sorry to hear about the fact the story didn't make it into the book on musical pieces.

How are the kitties holding up? I haven't hit my friends page in a few days so if you've posted since, forgive my ignorance.

Congrats on the full time temp job. I know it's not as nice as a full time permanent job, but it's a start and a 3 month stint gives you some stability.

Kitties are doing well; the eye infection is clearing up and the ear mites are gone.

The temp job is also going well, I think, though it will be for a little less than three months. I just got word that hey want me through Sept. 3.

Gotta find time this evening to send that story out again too...the second market didn't want it either. And pack for Duckon, or I won't get there until Midnight on Friday. Hmm...I should post about the panels they have me on, including one at (ugh) 9 in the morning.

P.S. I think this means you have yet to get to the latest chapter of Fireborn!

Sad but true! I have both the Homecoming and the Blackberries open in my tabs to read. I've been emotionally and physically drained for a couple weeks & still have a lot to catch up on.
