I think it's possible I've skipped a few. And you probably notice I have a preference for more of the chick-lit/thriller variety of books. I try to read something thoughtful every once in awhile, but mainly, I read for fun. I am not ashamed of that fact, darn it.

On another note, tomorrow I have to take my girl kitty in to begin treatment for diabetes. I'm a little stressed about it, and I've been waking up with panic attacks again. So, when you think of it, please shoot a little telepathic "chill, Missy, we love you" message my way. Thanks!


Amie said...

Not telepathic, but hopefully just as effective: chill, Missy, I love you!

Also, I cannot believe you didn't embolden Fluke.

Donna said...

Interesting mix, Missy!

Sorry you're having to deal with shooting your kit-teh, but she'll feel better!! And, if Dr's and nurses and med techs can do it daily, I know you've got what it takes to do it, too...and, well.

Love you and miss being with you, too!!
