Happy Sunday! What kind of week have you had? I hope you’ve got lots of fun, positive stuff to share with us today!
This week, I AM HAPPY that I got “Gimme Shelter” turned in. Woot! It always feels so great to send off another finished project. Nervewracking until I’m sure the editor is happy, but still… Happy, happy.
I AM HAPPY that turning “Gimme Shelter” in means I get to return to my little “Project: Passion” world next. It’s been a few months since I’ve been immersed in the storyline & world, so it will probably take me a little while to get back there, but I’m very excited about finally being able to start PROJECT: RUNWAY BRIDE. I’ve been looking forward to this story for a very long time. :orny
And most of all, I AM HAPPY that my knee is starting to feel better. For anyone who missed my Facebook updates, I spotted a stray cat where no helpless domestic animal belongs while out & about on Tuesday. Heavy traffic, no houses anywhere nearby, & of course lots of snow & freezing temperatures. :ahhh So of course I pulled over & attempted yet another daring rescue. This one didn’t work out so well. The cat stayed put while I talked to it & tried to get close, but it was up on a hill & I was down below. When I tried to climb up the steep bank, I twisted my knee. On the very first step, too!
But I kept going, even after the cat took over. I limped around everywhere, calling & looking for the poor thing before I finally had to give up. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized I’d actually done something really nasty to my knee. Walking was not an option. So I iced & wrapped it, then called my chiropractor the next day. Thought about calling my GP, but figured all he’d do was send me for x-rays, which probably weren’t necessary, then maybe suggest cortisone shots or sending me to a specialist. Blah. The chiropractor had much better advice—he told me to keep doing what I was doing…lots of ice, lots of wrapping, & to rest & elevate it. If that didn’t help, he’d get me in to see “a great knee doctor” on Monday. But the ice & wrapping is working…or at least it seems to be…so I may not need to see anyone at all. Yay!
And as soon as it’s all better, I’m going back after that cat. You know I will. :steamin

Awww poor kitty. Glad to hear your knee is getting better.
My daughter is due is 14 days, so we’ve been getting little baby things even though she has just about everything she could possibly need for the next 6 months. lol But you know, while surfing amazon and somehow ending up in the baby section..I just have to grab a couple of things.

I’m glad your knee is feeling better. And I hope that kitty realizes *who* you are and how great it would be if he/she rescues him/her.
It’s been an up and down week, but the good outweighs the bad.
B’girl had her second gymnastics competition yesterday. This is a big one and usually brings in competitors from other states. We knew it would be tougher than the last one but she did amazing! She brought home the top prize in her age division getting the gold in All Around. This is her second 1st place in AA this season. In all the years she has competed she has never got first in AA. She’s been first in events. She was one very happy girl.
Afterward, we drove an hour west to visit my oldest son and his roommate. He’s coming home in a week or so for his physical for the coast guard and then in March he heads out for basic training. He will get all of his training done just in time to start his junior year in college in August. I’m proud of him, but those 5 1/2 months are going to be tough.

Oh my goodness! I am so glad your knee is feeling better… that poor kitty.
For me, the weekend was very cold… we got hit with a cold snap… had to cover some of the plants to keep them from freezing… put out some extra food for the wild birds.
Read quite a few good books this weekend… had some wonderful homemade dishes for dinner to beat the cold… very very excited about this book win! :letitsnow Love finding new to me authors to read. Thanks for the win and for sharing… sending off an e-mail!
