Time for a change (also known as writter's block)

I decided that it was time for a change, and put a little more red in my hair, which is something I haven't done in a long time. Also, I haven't worked on my knitting since Sunday. I guess it might be due to the fact that I have been mostly busy at work of late. Last night I spent the evening reading blogs and e-mails. And normally I wouldn't be blogging this late, but I can't seem to climb (and I mean climb, as my bed is one if the really high up ones) into bed and fall asleep. Partly because I have a new book to read. See, today at lunch, I went to Miss PJ's to get this:

It just came out today. Miss PJ bought it for me as my birthday gift. I love Laurell K. Hamilton's books. This the 14th book in the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter Series, and I can't wait for the 5th book in the Merry Gentry Series to come out in December. I blame Miss Rachel for this one. She is the one who handed me the 1st book of the Merry Gentry Series, the got me hooked on the Anita Blake books. But, maybe by emersing myself in someone else's make believe world, it'll help me get past the ever-growing writter's block I seem to have developed. See, I love to write short stories (that sometimes grown into more) just for the sake of writing. All the while hopeing that maybe one day, I'll write something worth the effort to try to publish it. It's been this way since 6th grade. But lately, the things that help me write just aren't working. Maybe the latest installment of Anita Blake will help.

On a different note, the other night when I told the girls to get showers, this is what I saw in my bathroom:

This is a familar scene. Both cats on the bath mat waiting for someone to finish. (And please excuse the basket of clean laundry at the edge of the photo, sometimes folding it just doesn't happen.) This is a tradition in our house. It started with the dog that I used to own, Chassy, my Australian Sheppard. Moonie (the black cat) learned it from Chassie, as Chassie used to wait to make sure that myself or Katie was ok when we were finished. And here is who they were waiting for:

It's Annie!
