Yay, it’s Friday! This weekend is booked with family birthday parties, which is fine and dandy. It should all be a good time.
Of course, busy weekends mean the time will fly by and we’ll soon be back at work on Monday. However, this week I’m a bit excited due to the fact that I took off a couple of vacation days. Our pup is getting a small surgery for her teeth on Wednesday, so I just took off the rest of the week.
The best part is that it’ll be the beginning of NaNo, so I’m hoping to get a good head start on my word count for this year (that, and I’ll have the house to myself for a couple of days, so that’ll be awesome!).
Besides NaNo, there’s tons of other things I want to do, like a bit more reading, going through my clothes, and some cleaning with only the cat and dog as company. We’ll see what happens, haha!
Did Rachel and I tell you guys that we got a cat?
His name is Chase. His name should be Spidercat. He’s both very curious and very nervous, not to mention bonkers, but I suppose that’s on par for only being 10 months. One of his favorite activities is running back and forth between the upstairs bedroom and den as if someone is chasing him (and, no, we named him before he started doing this). Considering that Chip sometimes likes to chase him, his imagination may not be that far off.
He’s not a bad kitty at all, and he’s still getting used to all of us. Our late cat, Hunter, had adopted us when he was an adult, knew what he was doing, and just wanted some humans to love and be loved in return (not to mention food). Chase is starting to warm up to us, especially Rachel, whom he’s spent the most time with, but he’s not much of a cuddle-bug yet. He likes to hide in the room we’re in and, if we leave, meow pitifully until we come back or start talking to him.
He doesn’t want to be alone, but he doesn’t want to be around people. Much like Rachel and me sometimes, haha!
If he were a book character, I wonder who he’d be like… He kind of reminds me of Neville Longbottom (started off timid but getting braver) from Harry Potter or maybe Bilbo from the Hobbit (wants to see what’s out there but enjoys the comfort of familiarity). Chip would be Ginny Weasley (doesn’t back down from a fight and doesn’t mind protecting what’s hers) or Galadriel (a queen in her own right).
Anyone else out there have pets that remind them of some of their favorite book characters?
I’m very sleepy.
For the past few nights my 8 pound dog has been sleeping in my bed, and she takes up more room than you’d imagine. Couple that with the few times she tries to play in the middle of the night, and you may understand that I’m not getting as much sleep as usual.
Besides that, I’m having more of a social life this week than I’ve had in a while. After work, I have about an hour at home before dashing out again. Don’t get me wrong, the company has always been fantastic, but…
I’m behind on my NaNoWriMo word count. It’s trivial compared to, say, seeing people and my day job that pays the bills, but I’m getting anxious from not writing.
Have any of you gotten like that? Feeling down or grumpy because you haven’t been able to put the pen on paper in a while?
