My Cat, On Prozac: Part Deux!

So as we truck along with drugging the cat per the vets advice I have noticed quite a few fun side effects but most recently I've noticed his Giant, global looking eyeballs. It's like all of a sudden he is seeing the world differently, and finds it surprising...

Here is a visual reenactment:

Blog Love!

Just a few things I wanted to say today and I'll get off your back...

Congrats to Windowpane Memoirs for their new blog look, it is surely one of the most creative ones out there, though most of you truely blow me away when it comes to blogging. I just can't keep up!

My friend, Lindsay, shared this blog with me when we were at bowling last week. I couldn't stop laughing! If the day finds you bored, go read some of what she writes! She tells the funniest stories and draws pictures with a simple paint bucket program, but they're great. Considering her 25000+ followers, you know it's good.

Thoughts From My Husband...

In an email sent to his friend, and a point everyone should know...

I was re-reading the book the tipping point today. If you haven't read it before, it talks about epidemics and their tipping points. When does something hit epidemic levels. One idea that it spoke of was the idea of the broken windows effect. In New York during the 1990's the city and subway were made safer using this broken windows plan. The idea is that if you want to decrease major crimes you need to take care of the little things like graffiti and toll skippers. The idea is to change the environment, so it appears that someone cares. The idea is that criminals will brake the law in places where it seems like it is acceptable. I was reading the end of the chapter and something hit me. Everyone says do what you are passionate about and the money will come. Or, share what you love with others and the money will come. It just made sense, when you are passionate about something, you enjoy what you are doing, so you do the little things. These little things are the difference maker. They dictate whether you are going to be successful or flounder after a few months. I feel like this is the reason why some are successful and some aren't. It is the little things.
I just wanted to share this profound idea that popped up today.

My Cat... On Prozac...

Kitty went to the vet again since he supposedly has Kidney failure...

He's been ripping apart doors, floors, and peeing everywhere but in his litter box, and I'd finally had enough!

I took him, this time, up to the university where our vet school in nationally awarded. Turns out he's fine! He's just anxious and depressed.

"Here. Give him these." They said.

"What are 'these'?"

"... well ... Prozac. That cat needs something." All the while she staring at me bleary eyed as they had kept Chandler overnight for testing. I could tell he must have drove them as nuts as me...

I took kitty home and forced a half of a pill down his throat and this is a re-enactment of the following 48 hours of his life...

Life is good now.

Trying Out A New Genre...

For the last week I've been indulging my college talents and have been trying out a new genre! My brother was the inspiration for my new story, and where word count is hardly the main factor, illustration certainly is. I stayed up late one night (my husband was snoring, sleepwalking, and standing in the closet talking to himself...) and I wrote the story all in one sitting. Unfortunately, illustration is a bit more time consuming...

My brother struggled with school but having worked hard with the constant support of his little bear Grumpy Lumpy, he managed to overcome his struggles and is now a commercial pilot, not a feat easily mastered given his obstacles, especially when most would have given up long ago...

Today we launched our new website for Knight Angels pending the coming release of Book Two: Book of Revenge. We made the website more interactive and simple, clearing out the clutter while keeping it exciting. You'll need Flash to view it on your computer, but most computers have that these days, just not those pesky iPhones.

So roll on over and check out the new Knight Angels website!

A New Week!!

Sciatica contained, I can now start a new week! Let me tell you, lately I have been majorly slacking! I got addicted to this Facebook game called City of Wonders and I can't seem to focus anymore. And I thought Farmville was bad...

But now I've nearly conquered the game and I can focus back on what's important cause the holiday weekend is over and I have to, or is it want to?

The weather sure sucks lately, huh?

Then again I was growing tired of the hot weather. My husband and I were discussing candles last night and how wonderful they are when it gets cold because muggy + candles doesn't mix. I'm just happy to have a reason to mask the smell of his dirty clothes again, but that's just me...

Book tour for Knight Angles: Book of Revenge starts October first. We will be visiting a whole ton of blogs in October. I will post the schedule as we get closer.

I love my bloggers :)

The sequel toy Book of Love is shaping up well. Looks beautiful so far. I love the actual page elements and layout, not to mention the ending! Gets me all excited for the third book and I think it will get you excited too.

What else????????

I made some cookies. It's my famous Choc. Chip cookie recipe which isn't much different from Toll House except the egg part:

Two sticks of salted Butter, room temp
One Two Tablespoons Vanilla
3/4 C. Brown Sugar
3/4 C. Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Soda
pinch of Salt


Whip furiously. And I mean furiously...


One egg and one egg yolk.


Whip furiously some more. Think submission.


2 C. Flour
One bag choc. chips (not the huge bag unless you're nuts)


Bake 350 for 12-15 min.


Swear they keep you full for hours. Keeps my pregnant bestie pretty happy too.

Flat On My Back...

I feel old today...

I feel old because I hurt my back doing something, who knows what, maybe golf, gardening, sitting and editing too much. Either way now I'm on my back in bed with a cat that kicks me in his sleep and a back brace. I guess it's called Sciatica and with this kind of pain, giving birth without an epidural is starting to sound good in comparison.

Anyhow, this really BITES.
