This week has been crazy busy. Last week was just as crazy. I took kiddo to softball camp, and we hit a museum while we were over in Illinois. (And btw, 11-year-olds get the giggles in rooms with Greek and Roman statue reproductions…) We added a second night in a hotel so that I didn’t have to drive home late that night after camp. Then…when we got back, we thought we were losing Liberty the Border Collie again. At 16 1/2, we know it’s just a matter of when, at this point.
We did the whole sudden vet visit yesterday (again). She’s doing fine today. The abscess on her leg wasn’t nearly as bad as we first thought. It was still scary, though.
Today is the second anniversary of her stroke. I was sure then that we’d lose her, but this dog just keeps on ticking. I’ve never seen a more determined dog in my life.
A quick book update, now:
I’m a little behind on everything on my “hoped for” schedule. Between Libby’s sudden trips to the vet, and the attack on our little ducks, Kiddo’s softball camp, and some other things that have been going on, my work time has been almost non-existent this week. I’m hoping to get back on schedule starting tomorrow.
I have sent the fourth (and possibly final) Seasons book to my editor. She’s going to get it back to me in time for a July 21st release! (But not in time for a preorder!) After that, I think it’s going to be Linsey’s turn to get her story! That may change as I get further into the process. Zoey is also moving along ok, at this point.
(Libby is doing better and can put weight on her leg again. The duck that was attacked by a raccoon does in fact still have her eye! She’s made a full recovery, but will have some very intriguing scars to talk about with the other ducks out there now!)
I’m also about to finish a brand new PNR title (Becca and Matt!) that has been in the making since 2012! I’m feeling confident that the rest of the summer will be far more productive than the last few months!
