So, I guess this is going to be one of those stream-of-conscious type blogs that Liz loves me to write.
A number of years ago--that seems longer than a few years ago, right? I wonder why?
Where has Dennis Quaid disappeared to???
Mimi's--our dog--health is still up in the air. She is possibly bleeding internally, but I can't afford the exploratory surgery to find out why.
As I drove home from the vet after another blood test, I thought about how our lives are a little in limbo, waiting to see if Mimi is going to be okay or when/if we will have to put her down.
And I thought about cancer families. Especially the ones where it involves a child. Because that's in my book. The heroine's son is in an optimistic remission.
Going through this with a dog is not an ample comparison--but when I think about how much it has affected our lives and our thoughts--I magnify that my a thousand and maybe, I've gotten a little closer to how these families cope. And maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to parlay that into some worthy scenes in my book.
Still no word on Dennis Quaid?
I finally read Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I don't know if that's his real name--can you imagine calling a baby Ransom???--but it's a really great writer's name. And it's a really great book--lived up to the bucket loads of accolades and the bestseller list. I'm getting ready to read the next one, but first I'm going to read Meet Me At The Beach by V.K. Sykes. I'm ready for something romantic and lighter and it was recommended by one of my favorite authors via Facebook.
I think I follow more authors than friends on Facebook. Mmmm...
The 100 was amazing last night! That show has more unexpected twists and turns than most other shows. And seriously Grounders, "Blood Must Have Blood" shouldn't be your clan motto if you turn tail and run because of a deal. I'm just saying....
On that note, I'm off in search of Dennis Quaid...Have a great day...
