Currently Reading: The OrphanTrainTrilogy, by Jane Peart. The first one is called Homeward the Seeking Heart. Haven't started it yet. I'll read Brynn's this afternoon:)
Word Count: 935. In little over an hour, my writer's block broke with a vengeance.
9 PM: 1280. Chapter two looks a lot better! Tomorrow, I'll tackle Chapter three...
Sorry Kell...I won't be having cats for a while. We're getting two new pets this afternoon.
One is to be named 'Pinky'. I suggested 'Brain' for the other one, but no.
Okay, how about 'Templeton'?
Have you guessed it yet?
My children, my teens specifically, are buying two pet (shudder) RATS!
Why have I not stopped it?
Because, (sigh) I'm the one who had hamsters when I was 16! And since hubby refused to make a decision, and who can argue with the logic of "you had rodents once..." and "I'll take good care of them; you won't have to feed them, change their bedding, or anything!"
And they do take fairly good care of the dog, so I said yes.
And earned their Mother of the Year appreciation.
I still like the name 'Templeton', although my daughter assures me she's naming hers 'Mikey'.
My fondness for hamsters lasted only a year; we'll see how long this lasts!
