So today I was getting ready to leave on errands when my oldest kitty, Lucky, began acting weird and miaowing funny at me. So I hurried and called the vet, completely forgetting that they closed early today. After talking to the receptionist, I managed an appointment for Monday @ 10:15 am.

All the while, she is waltzing back and forth, miaowing at me and staring at her food dishes. (She already had fresh water; that's one of the first things I do in the morning while I get teh foodz ready.) Finally she begins to push one dish of nice, very finely diced food toward the edge of the desk, and it finally dawns on me that maybe, just *maybe*, that something is wrong with the food. So I scrape it out and put in an outdoor dish for the outdoor cats, where it is inhaled at something just under warp speed. So, nothing wrong with the can, it would seem. So I open a fresh can for her, this time a pate (sic), dump it in her dish -- and she promptly faceplants and gobbles it down. After she finishes, she daintily cleans her face and whiskers, jumps off the desk and goes into my bedroom for a very well-deserved nap!

And I just sit at my desk, facepalming as I realize I have just been pwned by my cat.

PS. I am half-way tempted to cancel the appointment now but I suppose I will keep it instead. Maybe?

This has been kind-of a strange month. I would give it a kind 'five' and that is being generous.

The first two weeks were so-so. My cleaning lady has faithfully shown up every. single. day. >.< Which is actually great, y'know because I have had stuff sitting around for way too long and I need someone to work with me on it. Otherwise I am just overwhelmed by memories and everything (since a lot of it is family stuff) and it really is the only way for me to make progress. The bad side is: I have not been able to get to the Y at. all., and I am losing way to much time there -- to say nothing of how much exhausted I feel because I am sitting in this same old mess nearly 24/7, which is not good. I am paying for a membership that isn't being used like it should because the classes I take are in the mornings... *sigh* But at the same time, this other needs to be done as well... ::spazzes::

So, it seems that the laptop had more issues than first thought. No news on what if anything was able to be recovered from the desktop -- and no further word from the repair shop either. I hope that this means they are getting closer to having something fixed but I am not going to bet on it.

Yes, I did manage to see "The Hobbit" last night. :D When I finally get my computer(s) back, I will be posting more about it.

But since my time is almost up on the library computer I am using, I am going to log off.

Ttyl!

The hd on my main computer (the desktop) is in all probablity fried. Basically, everything is gone though there is an extremely small chance some things *might* be salvaged. *Maybe*. But I have to assume that all of my writing is gone.

And my laptop (the infamous Vista) coughed up the dreaded Blue Screen this morning, so it too is back in the shop after less than 24 hrs... ::headdesk headdesk headdesk::

So... I will be back online. Eventually. I just don't know *when*.

Wish me luck.

TTYL!

This week started out in a not-so-good manner.

Monday, I was working on a gift fic (and doing some beta work) when I realized I had to make a vet run for meds. So I turned off my 'puter, ran the errand (which was after lunch btw) and hurried home so I could get back to writing. (Was any of this backed up anywhere? Why no, of course not. ::is very ashamed::)

And, unsurprisingly by now, my main 'puter (the desktop *and* the one I had been working on) had crashed *yet again*. ::headdesk headdesk headdesk:: So I had to make yet *another* run this time to a *new* computer repair shop since the store I originally bought it from has worked on it *twice* this year and it's still doing the same damned thing. Feh! Hopefully the new shop will be able to fix whatever is wrong with it so that I don't have to keep running back to them because really, this is the third time in one year and that is just way too much.

I decided to take my older laptop (the Vista, remember?) in as well because it is supposed to be my back-up and I had planned to take it in earlier last fall (after my holiday) but that idea was delayed by a plumbing issue. And since things like plumbing tend to pwn any computer issues, well...

So, the good news is that the laptop is fixed and that is what I am using right now. The bad news is that everything I was working on is on the *other* one -- the desktop. With any sort of luck it will be done Friday and I can finish what I was doing.

And in other news...

The weather is just gorgeous out today: nice and warm with just a teeny bit of wind. So I decided to try and get some gardening started. Though I will probably just end up and read a book and drink some tea instead, lol.

I have a small blueberry bush to plant, some flowers, and of course, a small start of a rose bush. We shall see what happens. I need to get the garden ready but that is going to be a major project.

Today it was too windy to work outside, so I cleaned the house instead. What a long day, and no real reason for it. *sigh* Now I am tired and chilly; I am going to bed and turn on the electric blanket, maybe then I can get warm.

Yesterday and today are (were) full of unexpected spring cleaning in the form of clearing out the deep freeze. It all started last week...

Cut because, yes, it's that long and involved.

Today was kinda/sorta hot and humid, because we have storms. Big surprise, eh? So far most of them are to the north and east of here so we are getting mostly wind.

I did a few errands but that's a whole other story, and a long one. In fact, I need to update about my whole week but I am afraid that the weather will make me lose my connection before I can post and so... just yeah. MTC but later on.

However, my cold is much improved though my cough holds on -- as always.

TTYL!

About Today

So far today has been ok. I have done my civic duty and voted, got the mail and bought enough milk to appease the Fur Queen's need for her morning taste of milk. I was out this morning, and I iz a bad bad hooman. We are not amused, indeed!

I woke up about 3am since the muses were demanding I write. As in *this minute*! 600 words later, they agreed to let me to go back to sleep -- even though they continued their discussion until well past dawn. Gah!

So now I am off to see what, if anything, makes sense now and just how much rewriting/editing it needs. (I only hope it looks more coherent than something my cat typed...)

I have been busy reading at one of my absolute favorite lj communities, mock_the_stupid . If any of you happen to be reading this, I really truly suggest that you check it out. They are updating after the last holiday weekend and... [vbeg].

Other news: nothing much. Just becoming lazier (which is probably a sign of deepening depression but wth?) and vegging out w/my dvds. Back later on, probably.
