I’ve not disappeared!

It’s been a long time since I last posted and I’m sorry.  It’s been chaotic.

I did scrape up enough cash to get a new tumbler.  Same thing as the last one.

November 2 we had to put our beloved cat to sleep.  He was 19 years old and we’d had him for 13 of those years.  His kidneys failed.  I’d been pilling him for a thyroid problem for years, he was totally deaf, had arthritis and was generally a cranky old cat.  But he was our baby and losing him was devastating.  I cried so much that first week, especially the first few days.  Even now, over 2 months later, typing this brings tears to my eyes.  I miss him so much.

Next, my parents moved.  And that was a long drawn out process.  They moved from a 5 bedroom house to a trailer.  We moved them so that they were living at the new place right before Thanksgiving and just last weekend we finally got the last of their belongings out of the old place.

Add the holidays to all of that and you have chaos.  Things are quieting down now, though not for long.  Right after the new year, we decided we were ready for a new cat, 2 of them actually and kittens at that.  So off to the Humane Society we went.  It’s a bit early for kittens but they had a litter in foster care that we were able to see.  If all goes well, 2 of those kittens will be coming home with us.  They’re still a bit too small to come home but we’re hoping they’ll be ready this coming Saturday.

They will be living in my studio until they’re comfortable here and with us.  That means no claying (pasta machine is too loud). 

Last week I discovered that I was nearly out of beads to sell.  So I’ve frantically been making beads.  I have one tumbler load nearly done sanding and the last half of a 2nd load is in the oven as I type.

Now that I have that out of the way, I need to get to work on my paperwork for last year.  My state business taxes are due at the end of this month.  And soon after that I’ll have to do our income taxes.  That’s no picnic in the first place and now we own a house and the tax headaches that go with it.  I’m ever so thankful for TurboTax.

I’ll try to remember to post pics of the kittens and the new beads.
