Okay first some updates on things.
1- the photo restoration project known as “the google plus incident” is slow going. But I’m plugging along. I will not be defeated google plus, you hear me! *said in her best Liam Neeson voice with liquor bottles taped to her hands*
2- the print recipe project is going well. I’m now working on November and rounding my way to October. Only 8 more months to do. Pfft, piece of cake! Wait, did someone say cake…
3- kitty had a bladder meltdown of epic proportions and had to have a small procedure done. He’s doing well and we’re happy he’s okay. For those who know I have three ragdoll kitties, it’s the middle one named Spark. Also known as Demon Spawn. He’s had three of these episodes now. The first got him the nickname “my I coulda bought a new couch cat”. The second one he got the nickname “so they wanna turn my little Spark into Sparkle” due to the vet suggested we give him sex change operation. This last incident has dubbed him “well there goes any hope of getting my new camera cat”.
4. mini-me’s achilles injury has flared back up and she was practically carried into the house on the weekend by boytoy. Her legs are a mess and we need to go back to see the specialist. This is the injury that kept her off her feet for almost 2 years. So she’s a tad freaked out. As am I. No upside to this one. Unless you consider watching the entire Buffy and Angel seasons a plus, which I’m not gonna lie, I kind of do. Angel+Spike=happy mommy!
5- my pinched nerve is better. Almost full mobility now. Not sure if it was too much time on the computer last week hunched over the blog or what. I know I put in a ton of hours working on print recipes last week. Either that or I slept funny, or a combination of both. But all is well and if you talk to me I can now turn my head to listen. How cool is that. On the weekend I had to point my whole body at anyone I talked to. I may have gotten about a dozen digits while out shopping one day. See, always an upside.
Okay so on with the show…
