Sorry for the delays. I got caught up in writing an OUAT-Pete's Dragon Crossover that consumed about 6 months of my writing. Seriously. Bunny galomphed into my head and didn't leave me enough space to write anything else. It's done now. 29 chapters later.

Then I got caught up in Yuletide.

So now... finally getting back into my regular writing. A new chapter of Hero In My Life should be up soon.

In other news, I've recovered from cellulitis and am dealing with lymphedema. I have nurses coming to change a dressing on my calf. It's been that way for a few weeks. Eventually, I'm going to need compression stockings, but the wound needs to heal first. The underlying cause seems to be lousy circulation in my legs. Veins are refluxed. I've also been told that losing weight will probably help with said circulation (along with the stockings). So, I'm on my third week with http://www.myfitnesspal.com. And it's going well. I've lost 10 lbs. I know that's a lot, but it's early days. I'm not starving myself. I'm usually eating 1500-1700 calories. I'm also trying to walk for at least a half hour every day. Pretty sure I'll soon settle into a 'normal' 1–2 pound/week loss with occasional plateaus and temporary gains, but I must admit I'm feeling psyched right now!

One of my ferals wants to move in. Hubby's opposed to it. I've told him that when the winter turns brutal, Soot is coming indoors. For once, he said 'maybe' and 'but he'll have to stay in the basement'. I'll take it. He's just such a loving little guy. I'm positive he had a family once. First: he's vocal. Not normal for ferals at all. Second: he loves being picked up and cuddled. At least, by me. If anyone else gets too close, he bolts. Third, when I've snuck him into the house when hubby's not home, he behaves himself. He might explore a bit, but he doesn't hide. I don't have to chase after him. I know he doesn't have a home now. He's been TNR'd and has the cropped ear to prove it. But I would love to know his backstory. If he ran off one day and got lost, that's one thing. But if he was abandoned... I am not normally a violent person. But if I knew for a fact that someone did that to this sweet little guy? I would SO make an exception.

I guess that's what's new and exciting with me. How about you guys?

Soot sounds like such a sweet cat, I hope you'll get him through winter okay.

And good luck for further recovery!
