So, where have I been during the past two months? Well, you know, after convincing Harry and Meghan to relinquish their royal duties, working hard to get the orange idiot impeached, and building a spaceship out of recycled Diet Coke cans, not too much.
I’ve basically been hibernating. In November I had a truly horrible mental health crisis, and I cut myself off temporarily from family and friends, believing that this was the kind thing to do. (Helpful hint: It wasn’t.)
In December I once again joined the human race, began showering again (much to the delight of said family and friends, I’m sure), and started going to the local open mic night once a week as my re-entry into society.
Since the robbery (and if you’re not familiar with that whole mess, two guys kicked in my back door while my daughter and I were sleeping and robbed, beat, and almost murdered us) I have been constantly anxious and afraid. I’ve had the feeling that people are watching and/or following me, and it’s been hell to live with. My shrink finally put me on some anxiety medication and it’s thankfully working wonders.
The kittens are ten weeks old now and are ready to be adopted, except for the one we are keeping. Her name is Thor, since we are going along with the gender change in the Thor comics. We also have Loki, Odin, and Squeak, who did not receive a Norse name because he squeaks a lot.
I will post photos of them as soon as I can get the hyperactive little fuckers (I mean adorable little sweethearts) to sit still.
I am still active on Instagram, and if you’d like to add me, the link is on the menu on the left-hand side of the page.
I’m going to try to update this page every day, and I am still working on a book, but it’s taken sort of a different direction. If you know any publishers who’d be interested in giving me a fat advance, I’m game. Ha.
I’m also learning coding right now in hopes that I can get some work from home, and I plan to eventually take a class learning Python.
Jasmine is doing well. She has a job interview at a local car dealership on Monday, so good thoughts would be much appreciated.
With that, the time has come for me to feed the cats before they stage a bloody coup. Have a super day.
