WIP Wednesday + Write Motivation

Book: Nether 3
Current Word Count: 59,023
Draft 3:
Book Complete.

YAHOOOOOO! Book 3 is finally finished!! A few polishing touches tomorrow and it goes to the editor on Friday!!!! This is the best feeling since I really struggled with this last one. Due to not wanting to finish it for fear of saying goodbye to these characters and also being pregnant. The last month my focus has been SHOT with baby brain. I always thought that was something people made up, but now I totally get it.

*Happy dance*

Two songs that helped me along this week:

Natalie Maines - Take On Faith

Jonathan Jackson - Let There Be Lonely

Now for my Write Motivation goals:

1. Line by line edit third Nether Book. (Finished).
2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor. (Mailing it out Friday).
3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi  (not happening this month)
4. Blog at least twice a week. (Doing better)!
5. Comment on more blogs. (Trying. This should get better now that my novel is finished and I am not in crunch mode 24/7).

I am pretty happy where I am at, all things considering. Next week I will probably re-outline my sci/fi in preparation to try and finish it in June. If I finish that one too (half way through it), I will feel super accomplished before baby comes. Since after she comes I will be taking the rest of the year off. I'll write here and there when and if I have time, but lets face it. Newborn > all other things. You get my point. 
 
Unless I get a super easy baby. Yeah right! No babies are easy and being a first time mom, I so have my work cut out for me. Luckily I was twelve when my little sister was born and actually played a huge role in raising and caring for her so it won't be all new to me. 
 
Happy Wednesday

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
