Two and a half weeks left. Argghh!! Is it just me, or did this year slip by way too fast? And these last six weeks?? Where the hell did November go? How is it halfway through December already??
:panics a little:
Okay, now that THAT is over, here's what I did last week:
As of last night, I had edited and polished through Chapter 13. It doesn't seem like much, but that was a lot of work. (Update: After I wrote this, I couldn't sleep. I got the edits done through Chapter 15 and have polished through mid-14.)
Meanwhile, the weather was nice enough that I got out in the woods and started cleaning the trails I made last year. My guess is if you looked at it from above, my trails would look like a funky upside down capital Q. I mean, it ain't round by any stretch of the imagination, but it does make a loop with one central trail out, so I guess it could be a Q.
I also got caught up on my reading yesterday. I'm now at 95 books for the year, with 5 more to go to reach my goal of 100. Some of them were novellas, but then again, some of them were big, fat tomes, so it all evens out.
We made the decision to have the remainder of Max's teeth pulled. He's got something called stomatitis - which pretty much is like an autoimmune reaction (i.e. his body is actually fighting to kill his teeth - or rather the plaque on his teeth) and ever present as long as there are teeth, so out they come. It's his best hope for being pain free. There's a slight chance it won't work and he'll still need steroids for the rest of his life. There's also a slight chance the anesthesia will kill him, so if I'm a weeping loon on Thursday, you'll know why. He'll be my little gummer. Everything I've read says he should lead a normal rest of his life without teeth - including being able to still kill shrews.
Other than that, got my Christmas shopping done. Hubs and I have already received our gifts. The Kid got her Christmas box and was thrilled. The Moms' gifts have shipped and should arrive shortly. Yay.
How are things in your little part of the universe?
