I haven’t intended to fall off the face of the earth, and I will be back when I get some things sorted. But there’s a lot to sort just now.
The Tiny Cat has congestive heart failure. The good news is that she is responding to a diuretic and perking up a bit, so we may be able to get a few more months with her. She has had so many health problems all her life that it’s not so very surprising, but all the same I am gutted. Just when I was looking forward to a productive, happy summer.
Still no new laptop, so only sporadic internet access. Still other (happier) life complications going on in the background (travel, real estate, that sort of thing). My goal for the week is to do something, anything, useful and work-related every day, starting today (yesterday was all day at the vet or in too much of a state to do anything). Today I did a chunk of teaching-related translation.
