What a Week!

Hello!

Been a hell of a week, eh?

I don’t even remember Monday. I know it existed but Tuesday and Wednesday wiped it away completely.  And then there was yesterday, taking Micky to the pet ER… That sucked. 

However, she’s in the best place outside of Guelph (where there is a world class learning institution and animal hospital) that she can be. The vet called this morning and told us that last night Micky was fed and spit up some of it. They tried again this morning and she spit some of it back up again so they’re keeping her overnight tonight to make sure the meds are working and that she is eating. She is otherwise stable. 

Oddly, my oldest cat, Terror, has been running around here, yowling and howling for the dog and yelling at me about the lack of large canine presence.

Weird, eh?

On to business!  I know that I  promised you all a book by Thursday and I haven’t delivered. It IS coming!  It just needs reviewed.  It’ll be out by tomorrow afternoon.

See?

And then we can celebrate the coming of Santa Claus, aka the hot Norwegian businessman. 

Dog and book in the same day. It’s a good thing.  

I’m a little concerned about the cover now but we’ll see how it goes.  After some adjustments, the page count is different, which means the width of the book is different, which *takes a deep breath* means that the spine is a different size.  It’s now off by 0.05″.  I’m a little alarmed.  I don’t know how much Createspace will allow for in error.  I know it doesn’t matter in Kindle but for print, it makes a difference.  

I don’t want to have to redo it.  That’s math.  Lots of math.  And miniscule adjustments against rulers.  Blargh.

Well, no borrowing trouble, right?  Now, I’m going to go have lunch with my Mike and do some edits in HW3.  

Oh… I also have to figure out swag for IYASE.  

Not sure I can afford to do it now, after we paid for Micky’s surgery.  

It is important though…

  • It’d be good exposure for me.
  • It’d be good for my social anxiety to be able to do this
  • I love these people and they’re a lot of fun to hang out with (okay, a lower on the list reason, kind of but still important)
  • I’m using it as a fundraiser for our MS Ride, too.

We’ll figure it out.  And while it’s on my mind, take a look at this fabulous promo that one of the organizers created!
