Time to Be Productive (??)

I think my brain has fizzled out but I still refuse to take a blogging break, so here I go!

Thanks to everyone who participated in The Muse Party Blogfest on Monday! It was loads of fun getting to know everyone's muses. I don't think the party got too crazy, right? We certainly had an interesting mix of people! I feel like I should write a story about it (but you know what happens when I promise things...). I'm pretty sure Jordan tried to rig spin the bottle by putting all the guys in one circle and the girls in another. Did he think no one would notice??

Turns out I have another milestone next Monday--my 300th blog post. But you-know-who is taking over that day so I have no idea how that's going to go yet.

Well, I was supposed to be on a plane to Florida in a few hours but I decided not to go. Mostly because of the cat. He seems to be doing a bit better but he just stresses out so easily I don't think he would do very well alone for 5 days. Usually we have my dad and my fiance's sister check on him when we travel, but his sister was going with us, and I didn't think one person was good enough, especially with the stomach issues he's been having.

I have been feeding Gizmo a little canned pumpkin every day, which I think is helping. It was so funny the first time I tried to feed it to him, he wanted no part of it and I had to literally shove it into his mouth. Then he was like, wait a second, this is pretty tasty. Now he begs for it and scarfs it down. I also refilled the wall plug in that keeps him from stressing. It's like an air freshener that sends out happy cat pheromones. It's been a lifesaver since he started getting UTIs, but it's sooooo expensive at the pet stores so I have to order it from Amazon. I think stress was a big factor in him getting sick this time, too.

Anyway, enough about my cat! My fiance is gone until Monday so I'm all by my lonesome. I hope that means I can get a lot done. Maybe some, dare I say it, writing??? Or I could just sit around watching movies. Who knows?

Well, I've been up since 3:30 for no reason, so I'm going to make a giant cup of coffee. What's everyone else up to?


  1. Aww, I love cats. lol Glad he enjoys the pumpkin.

    I'm at work about to write my Wednesday post, then plan to work a little. lol

  2. I certainly had a blast at the party. :D

    That's cute! My cats probably wouldn't touch canned pumpkin. More for me! :P

    Sometimes being alone is what we need to be productive.

  3. Aww, sorry your kitty is having issues but I know I would have done the same thing and stayed home with him. Cats just seem to stress out so easily! I hope the pheromone keeps helping, I need to get one of those for my Nate.

  4. Wait, so Voldermort is going to be on your blog next Monday? Oh wait, you said You-know-who, not He Who Must Not Be Named. My bad. ;)

    Your poor kitty. I'm glad you've found a few things to help him feel better.

  5. Canned pumpkin? That's really odd. Sorry you can't go to Florida, but I would worry about my pet as well.
    Thanks again for hosting the blogfest. Jordan's trick didn't fool me.

  6. I'm very glad your cat is getting better! Be careful about that canned pumpkin thing... you will probably have to wrestle Gizmo for the pumpkin pie come Thanksgiving!

  7. WRITE! Always a better decision. Even though vegging is a good thing too.

  8. Good for you for not wanting to leave your cat; it always bothers me when people take their pets for granted and don't take care of them as well as they should (why do they even bother getting pets in the first place?). But you're obviously a caring owner, and I'm sure your cat appreciates that; pets get attached to their owners too. I wish I could have a pet, but my building doesn't allow one. I don't think that's fair, especially since they let my loser neighbors (who cause a lot more problems than a dog would) live here.

  9. I hope Gizmo gets better and that you enjoy some quality you time.
    Can't wait to see what you and Jordan have planned for your 300th blog. Congratulations on that milestone.

  10. Keep writing your novel. Sometimes it takes ten years to finish a book. Me too. I have been writing a novel for the past four years. The trouble is, I am older, but, maybe that is okay too.
    I hope your cat continues to get better.
    You definitely have the muse of a writer, including staying up until 3:30 A.M. and loving cats! That's what we writers do, isn't it?!

  11. Glad to hear he's doing a bit better. Canned pumpkin is a new one to me too. Hope you have a great weekend with a bit of writing involved! I'm sure some movies are allowed too.

  12. Making my way around on the A to Z Road trip! Stopping by to say hello and I hope to see you again next year, if not sooner!
