So, this is what I've been dealing with for the past few days...
The pouting is seriously getting to me, guys, I have to say. The thing is, the reason for the collar is that she recently had surgery to remove a couple of tumors (still waiting to hear what type/stage they were) and if she ISN'T wearing the collar, she licks her sutures. :-(
But still. It is SO, SO hard to resist that face. She also has this technique of walking up to you and pressing the plastic cone into your leg and standing there, unmoving. Her passive aggressive way of saying she is NOT. PLEASED.
But overall she's been a very good sport. (And sometimes we let her take a break and curl up on the bed, cone free. Cuz we're suckers like that.)
In other news, for the first time in MONTHS I had a good writing week last week! SO, SO excited about this and seriously hoping it continues. The past few months have been tough on the new work in progress...revisions on other projects kept needing to be done, and there were holidays and trips and...frankly...some discouraged feelings to overcome. But the WIP is starting to take over my brain again and I'm finally beginning to feel the story consume me. Yay!!
A few of my hopes for this week: We'll get good news regarding Koko's tumors/prognosis, I'll reach 30k on the WIP, and SMASH will be as awesome as the previews make it look! ;-)
