We did her dorm-room shopping on Friday. Just... yeah. Judah's former room is currently her Dorm Room Staging Area. She got this comforter and matching sheets, towels, et cetera.

Two weeks and two days until college.

And that's why I'm not on LJ much at present! Because... two weeks and two days! I have all the feels, and none of them are sufficiently formed yet.

Max is improving on the special kidney food! He has consented to use a litterbox instead of the dining room table! Yay Max! When I wrote my previous post; I was frightened and resigned, but he is doing better. *snuggles the Max*

Combining a bunch of things here!
* Yes, I was having more frequent simple partial seizures due to stress and sleep dep. They've eased up.
* My main thing now is fatigue, because damn, I had a long stretch of GOGOGO there.
* My pain is variable, as always. It has been less bad than it was when he was here. I have okay days and less-okay days. I haven't been talking about that much because it makes people fuss and there's nothing that anyone can do about it, really.

The Case
* Criminal: DA and detective still investigating; we're not due to meet again til September. Yes, this stuff is slow.
* Civil: Still waiting on something. It's coming. Sorry to be cryptic, but it's... not necessary to be cryptic, per se, but helpful.

All awesome. Yes, I owe you part two of The Michael Story, but I think I owe you part 0.5 first, and see above for "not on LJ much right now because OMFG COLLEGE".

I am out of the blogging habit and have been so much on the Twitters and Facebook and all of that that I'm not sure what I've left untold/hanging. What are y'all curious about?

As crazy as it sounds, I feel like I'm curious about the things that you're curious about. Most of all, I don't mind any state of "not blogging" because I feel like I have a clear sense of what's up and I'm just cheering for you lots.

It may sound silly, but department store layaway was really helpful when I was shopping for college. I know there isn't much time left, but it's a thought....

Boo for seizures! I have been getting more lately, but they never get any easier, huh :(?

And I cannot wait to hear the Michael story...;)

Cheering you on from the sidelines with the legal/criminal stuff.

ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT about the Michael Story.

Not a lot to say about Elayna and college, other than that's neat...

Oh hai. Many moons ago I contributed to a thing promising the sun and stars and a CNC machine via Kickstarter. Just received word that said project is on indefinite hold ('mothballing' is the official term) due to circumstances. Not sure if you're aware.
Question: how do you Make Writing Happen when the stories all faded because they weren't being told?

I am aware! I was a backer, so I got the update.

Real talk on that: He has not fulfilled a Kickstarter award in almost a year. Before that, it was a couple of months.

Every so often, I would nudge him about that, and he would flail and whine about the pressure. And... had he had any drive whatsoever, he would have been able to mill out and send every reward that was not, in itself, a CNC machine within a month. That should have been done by September 2011. Milling the machines and kits would have taken longer, but there was no excuse for that not being done by the end of 2011. Two years later, he's *maybe* half done. Maybe.

He said it really bothered him that he hadn't fulfilled awards. But. Then he'd go another several months without fulfilling any or showing any remorse. (If that was me? Man, it would have been killing me. And it *was* killing me a bit, because I encouraged all these people to back him. That Kickstarter only made it because of me.)

Basically, he used up all the money for living expenses and has no way to buy the supplies to fulfill the awards, and now he doesn't even have the machine anymore. It's been at least a year and a half since he had any intention whatsoever of fulfilling his obligations with that Kickstarter.

I recommend reporting him to Kickstarter for failure to deliver. I know several people already have.

In response to question, I will let you know! My stories are faded right now due to, y'know, ongoing abuse that specifically targeted my writing among other things + then being really busy with cops and lawyers, and now Elayna's going to college in two weeks. I look forward to figuring that out soon and will blog the process.

Yay interviews!

So glad Max is doing better. I don't want to overwhelm you with unsolicited advice but if you want I can point you to resources on kidney disease in cats. Scritches for Max.

That would be great - thank you!
