Deadpool, a unicorn, and a ringmaster


I took a bit of a hiatus from writing this week as things in my personal life escalated to a point where concentrating on writing was simply not possible.

Early in the week, my father-in-law took a turn for the worse and we were getting ready to say good-bye. Hanging on a machine in an induced coma, they gave him little chance. But, he is strong and he fought through it and is now opening his eyes and recognizing us.

My friend who was in hospital unfortunately did not make it. Her family said good-bye to her during the week and it clearly put into perspective how blessed we are to still have dad around.

On top of all that, I had to take my cat to the vet on Saturday, as she had lost half her body weight during that week. After some blood test, the vet diagnosed her with kidney failure. With the medicine and special food she is on now she should be able to have some quality of life left.

As for me... I went back to the ENT and he was not happy with my progress. I am to stay on my medication for another month and if there has been no improvement, then I will have to go for the op.

So, yeah, writing was not high on my priority list this week. Neither was checking Facebook, so I may have missed some of your messages, I will try and catch up on everything that has happened.

On the lighter side of things, we are getting ready for AlterEgo's FANTASY FAYRE. My husband took Sian and I to the costume hire place to get our outfits for Saturday. Oh boy... we're going to look so cool. I will be a unicorn and Sian will be a ringmaster.

And the best part? My husband has decided to dress up as well... as Deadpool. I cannot wait to show you all what we look like, but you'll have to wait until Saturday. I promise, we will post pictures. Keep an eye on my page:
