I really, really need to set up a pet gate to divide the house into 2 parts. The barricade we have up isn't working anymore. Kinsey has gotten too big, and too smart. She barrels over all the obstacles we've set up like an Olympic athlete running the hurdles. And now we're having trouble stepping over the clutter without falling ourselves.
Rather than describe it to you, here's what I'm talking about:
Such a lovely addition to our decor, huh? Blech. Today that's going to change. Kinsey and I are going down to Petsmart to buy a new pet gate that's on sale and has a small cat door for the cats to venture through as the mood strikes. Problem is that my big bruiser kitty, Teddy, may not fit. I mean, this animal is enormous. He's 30 pounds at least, and quite a wide load. But we're going to try it and maybe make a few adjustments with Ted in mind.
I'm having a blue day. Heard from my agent and we got a couple more rejections. She has a few more publishers to try, and she's going back to 2 she's already submitted to, only targeting different editors. Fingers crossed!
Don't feel much like writing today. I hit a wall in a scene anyway and need to think about what to do next. I might post a question about it on the Absolute Write Water Cooler forum. I always get great suggestions over there, except the site appears to be down temporarily.
I did some invoicing of design clients yesterday, so I hope to see a few checks arrive in the mail next week. Sure do need them. Things are very lean right now.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
