Hey guys! I know it’s been a while since I’ve actually written instead of being the cat’s writer. But I wanted to kinda explain some of my quietness lately. As some of you know, a few years ago I got back into the Lego thing… I blame Kelly (the famous Boris’ mom) completely and she knows it lol. But then as my hands started to refuse to play nice, everything went into a 15″ tool bag and got put aside. I even toyed with selling or giving them all away. But then I figured I’d at least see what figs (lego people) I had and go from there. My initial display sucked (it was like a stadium, but it was a lot of work for really disappointing results), but it got me back going. Later that night (this was just a couple days ago, if you follow us on facebook you saw it) I decided to redo it, and keep them flat and just stagger their positions and I came up with this (and pardon the sticky note and kleenex dispensers in the back):
Now what would drive mama to do this? Once again, Kelly’s fault!
Last year, a game came out for both Android and iOS called Lego Tower (at least that’s when she introduced me to it). I normally detest tower building games, but this one’s different. There’s so much to do, no time deadlines, you’re not dead if you walk away for a while, and you have a LOT of possibilities to personalize your own fig. There’s not a clogging of in-game socializing, just the option to go visit friends’ towers (though there are places to chat all over the place – Reddit, a facebook group, Discord, yeah… there’s no being bored unless you want to be). So yea, I went and did it… This was one of my creations:
So yes, this is what I’ve been doing. I’ve met a lot of really wonderful people both on Discord and on Facebook and have had a lot of fun.
As you all know, it’s been a real stressful time here lately especially worrying about Curzon. This is how I’ve managed to keep my sanity and help myself heal as well. We all need an escape now and then. I have two games. Another day I’ll introduce you to the other game that I’ve been playing.
But before I go, I also wanted to give you guys an update on the dude. LMAO
Curzon is doing good. He’s being a cuddle bug most of the time and really has taken to having one of us at his mercy at all times, more than normal. He’s still eating decently (though I’m not happy with him tonight but I’m hoping that it’s just I gave him his medicine-laced food right after he’d eaten and so he’s not as hungry) and pooping good (though not as much as when we were clearing him out, but I wouldn’t expect that either). He hasn’t had to have a trip to the vet in a month though I think I might take him down there just to put his butt on the scale. He’s still a gabby*** sometimes but he’s not been so annoying that I’ve had to spend the night on the floor with him even though that might be what I need to do for ME if it didn’t hurt so dang much to move once I’m down lol.
I want to thank every last one of you again for all your love, good/positive thoughts/vibes, and advice through all of this. He truly is my dude and I will treasure every last moment of however long he has, whether it’s 6 minutes or 6 years. I will never forget the moment I first laid eyes on him, or when he first laid eyes on Jadzia when she was rescued. It’s been hard at times, but it’s been the best 18+ years spent with any being (I’m sorry mom, but cats don’t argue lol). If it wasn’t for Curzon, I would’ve never met Mr. Cat and this life – as tough as it is at times – wouldn’t even exist. Thankfully he knows that the cat is top priority – and doesn’t just know it, demands it! LOL he truly is the best cat daddy EVER.
