* I continue to vacillate between "I don't want to leave the house" and "I am really glad I left the house".

* I am working on a collection of highly interconnected poems that I have no idea what to do with when it's done because they aren't genre, and I do not know the world of non-genre poetry! But I have time to figure that out.

* I'll be in Chicago with the Thomases November 16-26!

* Which means I'm busy like whoa getting all of the Chanukah and Thanksgiving stuff in place over the next week and a half.

* Max has good weeks and bad weeks. This week he is having a bad week, which is really difficult for us. He isn't eating very much, and he's all wobbly. He weighs about 4 pounds now. The seizures are the hardest part, because they frighten him. He is a good cat. He still purrs.

* After a long run of boring knitting for the holidays, I'm enjoying knitting a Geysir Stretch shawl for myself in vivid cobalt and orange stripes. The deep green border might come in today. (Having an iPhone now means lots more in-progress pics of my knitting, so if you're into that sort of thing, it's on Ravelry.)

* Elayna's college musical theater debut is next Friday - yes, the day before I leave town! I'm looking forward to seeing her perform, and just seeing her. <3

Scritches for Max. My furry purries send some head bumps & face licks. I hope good days are just ahead. Has your vet suggested anything for the seizures?

Max is in the late stages of kidney failure, unfortunately; seizure medications for kitties are hard on the body, and when a cat has this little kidney function left, the vet's advice is "give him plenty of water, try to keep him eating the special food, and keep him comfortable."

Which is why I always note that he's still purring; he still has quality of life! He spent an hour on my lap last night purring *very* loudly.

So the vet didn't think the medications were a good idea. I work in human healthcare so I don't always know what is the same in cats as in people. For Max's sake I'm sorry to find out. Give Max some love from me, ok?

This is where my feels live. *hugs*

Everything would be easier if I could drive! A lot of my decisions get made on the basis of "if I run out of spoons, can I manage the hour-plus trip on public transit by myself?"

Is there a way to get to your pictures on Ravelry without actually joining the site?

Oh Max oh Max. Purr on, Max. *emotions*
