Sorry for missing Friday’s post, but we were taking our Jazzy to the vet to be sent across the Rainbow Bridge. She was almost 14, which is old for a Boxer, but she was still in good health (other than some arthritis) except for the cancer. It started as a mammary tumor because she was owned by a back yard breeder so she was never spayed until she was dumped at a shelter when she got too old to produce puppies. The tumor grew inward and then metastasized into her lungs and other organs.
So, it’s been a rough weekend.
And Riley, our other Boxer, has been glued to me ever since we got home on Friday. I don’t know what he’s going to do when I have to go to work today. (They were dumped at the shelter together.)
So, anyhow, not much in the way of world building has gotten done.
I did get what I have so far of Hedge House printed, and Friday night at work I started going through adding post it notes where stuff needs to be inserted. I didn’t get too far, but at least I got started.
I did pretty much nothing all weekend – it was just too hot. (Ninety degree heat waves that last for a week or more are just not normal in Pennsylvania.) I’m melting, the heat is sucking the life out of me and giving me a headache (do dead people have headaches?) and the AC in my car and at work is giving me a sinus infection.
Yes, I’m whining. But Camp NaNoWriMo started yesterday and I haven’t written a single word for it, which sucks.
I’m going to try to at least write a few paragraphs at work tonight to type up when I get home. I think if I can just get started…
