My goofy, crazy life just keeps on trucking.
We are getting ready to take The Boy to soccer camp at a nearby university (will say where after he’s back) soon, getting geared up for the upcoming conventions/appearances, and getting ready for fall. (Yeah, I know, it seems early.) The Boy is already in cross country practices, we are hoping for soccer schedules soon, and he starts junior high this fall, so even more crazy to come with activities and sports and events and such.
We’ve got peppers coming in our garden, and I can’t wait. I’m looking forward to seeding them, stuffing them with cream cheese, possibly wrapping them in bacon, and tossing them on the grill. YUM.
Elizabeth the amazing whiny cat is CONE-FREE!! We’ve FINALLY found flea treatment and allergy proof food that is WORKING! Other than the hair filling in on the last bald spots, she’s 100% back to her former whiny minion glory, and is terrorizing sunbeams and catnip toys like a champ. This has been a fight nearly half of her life to find a combination that would not result in major itching, bald spots, hot spots, and allergic reactions. I think a lot of her problem also had to do with stress (we moved twice, the wedding planning taking over the house, the guys moving in, and us doing some remodeling did not help), but she’s doing WELL. We’ve got some children’s Benedryl to deal with the rough spots (with the blessing of the vet, by the way, don’t use this on your own animals without talking to your vet), and she’s back to her original, spaz-like cat self.
I’m also working diligently on TWO (cuz I’m crazy like that) different novel projects. Definitely getting the opening of THE BUNYON BARTER going, but also making progress on the soggy middle (it always feels that way, no matter whether it’s good or not) of the Demon project I’ve been batting around for YEARS. I’m changing the working title of it. Some of you might definitely have heard me talk about it as Demon Busters, but it needs a better, catchier title. Current working title is GIRL VERSUS DEMON; DEMON DEADLY SINS. I’d love to turn this into a Girl versus Demon series. Drop me a comment and let me know what you think.
Everyone is good at Chez King, if a bit frazzled by our insane schedule. I wonder sometimes how my folks did it with three of us. Of course, the three of us were generally running in similar (if not overlapping directions) so I’m sure it helped, but I’m in awe of my parents (and my in-laws, who also had three kids) and how they kept up with it all.
The Silence in the Library Kickstarter for HEROES! was incredibly successful! Stay tuned here for details, and THANK YOU ALL FOR SUPPORTING IT!!
