Steven kindly saved me the final piece of pizza, so in thanks, I swept the kitchen floor, scooped the kitty sand and dumped the trash. Now, it's time to work on my horrid dolly stuff again. Photos are on my Instagram which for me seems to be easier than sharing photos here, even if they all turn out a little blurry 'cause my hands are a bit shaky....http://instagram.com/nenetinathomas I guess I should get to making gathers in ribbon for the dolly corset, since I failed on Farm Heroes and I've read all the websites I check. (I've reached the end of the Internet....)
Finally did an interview that I kept forgetting about, and finally finished writing the text for the next artbook. Wow, glad those are off my To-do list! And I also finally passed the level of Farm Heroes that has been vexing me for the past few days. Yeah, I know that is NOT a real accomplishment.......
It has been a loooooong journey, but Marionette is finally done and a good percentage of the books are packed up-- A pile of books is now a pile of boxes (and this isn't all of them....) We (myself, Steven, Ann-Juliette and Jeanne-Annette and our good friend Robert Thompson are all BEAT) I was up for 23 and a half hours and I would still be sleeping, but hunger overcame sleep. After the pork cutlet settles, I will embark upon sleep round 2. You know even with the long hours and grueling labor, we, my husband sisters, and friend and I actually had fun, and much laughing and joking ensued--of course that could be because we were all so exhausted we were no longer rational!! Domino was with us pretty much all the time, laying on the table right the way. He looooves to be the center of attention! So I am DYING to know what people think of the book. I honestly can't wait! To order the hard-cover book, it is here: http://nenethomas.com/zarryiostrom-novels/book-three-marionette/
One of my cats was IBS so I have been scrubbing poop out of tile grout. Yes, it's gross, but I wanted to share my pain! My knees are sore, and I think I've singed my lungs and eyes from the cleaning chemicals, even though the window was open.
So The calendar I am using currently, does not have the holidays in it as I discovered to my annoyance when I wanted to know when Mother's day is. Jeanne-Annette told me Mother's Day is on the 11th, so I think I should order a bouquet for her. Maybe....
I keep toying with the idea of deleting my LJ, and signing up for one of the new shinier blogger sites nowadays. And in fact I DO have an Instagram, but LJ is just so useful when I want to do little text only updates like this--just won a color bomb on the Candy Crush daily spin the wheel thing. I haven't played CC in weeks, but when I do play, I should have a ton of boosters saved up. I actually have 11 color bombs now. Wish I could use them all on the same level.... Oh and here is my Instagram----http://instagram.com/nenetinathomas
Why am I sooooo uninspired?! But at least my cats are cute, and loveable :) Also it's gotten cold, really cold and the wind is absolutely howling outside. We are supposed to have freezing rain, so I sent Jeanne-Annette home and told her to not come back to work until Monday. She brings her youngest to work, and I don't want her and Baby Sebastian driving over icy roads on MY account! So back to it being cold and my cats being loveable. I have a sweet, purring Cassira on my lap right now. And my legs are going to sleep because she is 22 lbs :(
So, I just scrapped the painting I was working on all last and this week, It wasn't working and all my attempts to 'save' it weren't working either. So, onto the redo. I guess, since I just finished re-watching AoT (yep, I'm pathetic) and can't think of any other anime to watch, I guess I'll watch (listen actually since this is while I work) some thought-provoking documentaries instead. Gah, I want to be DONE with this project!!!!! :/
