The Biotch Pinned me Down in Bed ALL Day…Her Name starts with C and ends with R

528Pre-cancer days…no one takes a picture thinking, “in a few months I’ll have cancer and watch myself age faster than I can comprehend.”

So many changes…so fast!

I have a relatively new change.  I can really empathize with Tina’s naps now. I used to wonder how someone can nap that often! Now I have her beat. I don’t get up when my husband leaves the house because I can’t wait to go back to sleep. By lunchtime, I’m considering if I want to get up or just wait for my next nap.  Today I waited…I wasn’t officially up until evening.

The really good thing about napping is I don’t have pain. The fabulous thing is that I’ve come up with fantastic book ideas, however, I’ll waste an hour trying to remember them and then forget them anyway.

I know…I need a pen and paper by the bed. rp_keepscore-287x300.jpgIt takes me forever to find anything by my bed. Knocking stuff off is always involved. I spend a good deal of my good time knocking stuff around and misplacing the stuff I need the most.

However, I haven’t given up! I finished editing a book today. And I’m ready for another book tomorrow.

What a Difference a Year Makes

????????????????????Last year I began self-publishing. There have been ups and downs, but some of the ups have been fabulous. And it giving me goal through this deadly disease. This Wednesday I’m the beginning the first book in a new series. It starts out slow in small town Ohio…without a single death, but lots of blood. The world’s being invaded by creature in a town whose population is dominated by rednecks and rebellious young adults.

Psychiatrist Amanda Montgomery never dreamed she’d enter the infamous Blood Club on the arm of a handsome detective to see a group on stage performing sex acts for a full house. And her adventure goes from strange to bizarre when she becomes a reluctant participant of the show. Amanda’s medical specialty is delusional patients who believe they’re vampires…little does she know!

As token vampire on the force, Detective Mark Philips’ position in the community and at work is already causing him no shortage of complications. With the vampire numbers growing disproportionately to the general population, a day of reckoning grows nearer with each passing second. Just when he thinks things can’t get worse, a sassy doctor and an old foe join forces to bring him to his knees.

Detective Philips needs to find a vampire-wanna-be assaulting visitors of the Blood Club. He doesn’t need the complications falling for the doc will bring and he especially doesn’t want an old lover adding drama to an already explosive situation.

Amanda’s dormant sexual desires aren’t just awakened, they’re roaring out of control. But when she discovers Mark’s ex is not only a vampire but a man, her new sexual exploits are some she’d never imagined. Can she handle the man-on-man vampire heat?

4Cats of Christmas@tinagerow@britblaise

ChristmasTree2014

It may not be the most beautiful tree I’ve ever had, but this one means more to me than all of those others…

 

 

 

 

We haven’t had a Christmas Tree up since 2008. In October 2009 we lost Jon’s 23-year-old kitty Katie…

Rusty was left by himself and started mooning around the house, missing his buddy, Katie…

 

 

So we went to the pound and fell in love with our black beauty, Nox (the Goddess of the night)

Nox April 2014.5yo

Nox was only 4 months old when we got her in December 2009, and even though she was pretty skittish because she came from a house with several crawling children, she was a normal kitten and liked to explore and climb whenever possible. So we didn’t think a Christmas tree with all its temptations would be a good thing with a 4 month old kitten in the house.

Then in November 2010 I had my brain blowout, and our house was foreclosed on in December so we moved into an apartment.  No tree that year.

And for all of you who follow me on Facebook or Twitter you know that we lost our sweet Rusty in October of this year.

This time it was Nox’s turn to be lonely and moon around the house without Rusty. She had never been a lone cat in her entire life. And she wandered the house looking for Rusty even though she came and bumped noses with him as he passed over the Rainbow Bridge.

So Rocky came to live with us…our resident small pony…er….Maine Coon.

16.5 pounds of long-haired, purring sweetness…

Anyway, my guys knew how much I’ve missed having a Christmas tree and decorating for Christmas so on my birthday last week they decided to pull out our artificial tree, do basic decorations and see how the cats handled it.

Armed with the spray bottle I got Rocky to stop trying to chew on the branches and Nox to stop chewing on the bows of the presents under the tree….  After a few days we added more ornaments and they’re still doing fine with it. No broken ornaments and only a few mushed presents – although nothing breakable from just this:

Rocky likes to lie on the smaller presents under the tree. He’s adorable and he’s not really hurting anything so we just let him stay there and look cute :)

As for me, I’m still writing. Getting my kink on daily and trying to finish up this current WIP.  Darian just finished finals for this semester and Jon is getting some shows done before he starts vacation next week…

Thank you for joining me for the 4 Cats of Christmas!!  And I hope all of you have terrific holiday seasons, no matter which ones/what you celebrate!
