after a huge push over the weekend, I'm way up there...and have surpassed the halfway point of this rewrite. Won't finish it by the end of the month (at least I don't think I will) but that's what NaNoCamp is for :)

That's awesome, congrats!

lol i am so not even close with my words, though i've done really well with images.

You'll get there! Just follow wherever the creativity leads you for now. :)

Here's a graphic for you:

You've seen it, but I promised I'd post it in the comm. Ham arrived on Saturday and started sleeping through the night on Sunday. Eggs seems a bit jealous but seems to be putting up with it, and is protective where he should be. I really expected worse on both fronts and and thrilled to bits. So naturally my washing machine broke.

My plans for the week are to borrow my sister's machine, see what replacement washers cost, and make a vet appt for Ham. And I'm slightly behind on knitting but I should be able to catch up.

You know this is why puppy was my word, right? :D He's so fricken cute though. And I will never get tired of that little face!

I'm so happy that they're getting along, and hopefully the jealousy eases soon. UGH! Of course it did. That sucks, but if you have a Lowe's near you, they price match plus extra off, if I remember correctly.

Good luck with all of that! Hoping that Ham checks out at the vet, too.

I presumed! But I also think that Agdhani is getting her new one this week as well!

I will check them out. But my dryer lives on top of my washer and I don't know if different brands/models will stack. I will call the place I originally bought them from and then price check from there. This will eat up all of the travel money I've been squirreling, but then traveling won't be happening for a while.

I think you might be right! But I was also making my kids look at pics of your pups this weekend, too. Hah!

Oh, yeah, that makes it more difficult. I hope you can find something reliable that won't break the budget. As much as that sucks, a) it's there and not coming out of your immediate budget and b) doesn't look like anyone sane will be traveling soon either. *hugs*

I am hugely grateful that I've been saving. It's nice not to be in tears about it.

Yay for forcing ham on everyone!!! My niece just sent me a vid of him pooping.

It definitely helps! I have to be careful my kids don't mention things to my FIL because, even if I have the money, he feels the need to buy/fix/replace whatever is broken. I love that man, but sheesh. :D

It was no hardship on either of them! OMG, LOL! Well, he's got one thing down I guess?
Mar. 23rd, 2021 05:17 pm (UTC)
Your FIL sounds like a wonderful problem to have. Congrats!
Mar. 23rd, 2021 05:21 pm (UTC)
He and my MIL are wonderful people. I got extra lucky with them.
Mar. 23rd, 2021 06:22 pm (UTC)
They got lucky too!

I read this and heard Troy's voice in my head saying, "That's right, because they got ME as a son!" LOL (But thank you!)

It is totally the kind of thing he would have said, too. <3

    The first time Bernadette reached for his hand, it was though an announcement sounded in Howard's brain, “Ladies and gentlemen, we have contact.” It was amazing. He wanted to shout it from the…
