We're baking Bowie some doggy treats. I got the cutest bone-shaped cookie cutter on Amazon. The recipe is really easy.

little critter

New York Butterfly by Digital Heather

I took this pic while we were visiting New York. I'm really amazed when my iPhone takes an awesome pic. I was trying so hard to capture the butterfly without scaring him/her away. It wasn't until I got home an noticed there's a second little critter on the flower too. How cute!

turning into the She-Hulk

I love this picture so much. My husband found a few boxes of old toys at his mom's during our New York trip. He dumped them out in the middle of the floor and we played with them a bit.

My MRI went okay, I guess. I hate laying there for 30+ mins without moving. I get bored and start to get paranoid that I'm moving without knowing it. I played many rounds of the alphabet game with myself (Apples, bananas, cheese, dark chocolate, etc). I've had more than 6 MRIs in the last year. I'm probably turning into the She-Hulk. I'll know more about the MRI and everything else next week.

My husband has a cold. I spent the day taking care of him and trying to catch up on my writing. And P.S. I finally tried watching Dr. Who and absolutely can't stand it. Hate me; I don't care.

my nerdy awkward self

Disregard this total mullet I have going on. I'm trying to grow out my short hair, but more importantly, I met Mary Lynn Rajskub at NY Comic Con this past weekend!

I had no idea she was going to be there and my mother-in-law and I were just talking about how we loved her on 24. I was so starstruck because sure I have lots of favorite actors and actresses but she's different. I had a moment to tell her that watching her work in the last 10+ years really empowered me to love my nerdy awkward self and she said she loves when women tell her that. She was a sweetheart.

Aside from that vacation was great. We spent a few days in upstate NY for our friends' wedding, then headed back to Long Island to visit with family before comic con. It was great. The weather was chilly and the leaves were starting to turn. NYCC, although over-crowded and poorly organized, was fun. Meeting my Chloe was worth it and everything else was just gravy.

It's days like today I wish I had a maid or clone or Rosie from the Jetsons. Although my husband and I cleaned the house before we left, we were gone almost 2 weeks and we've got a ton of laundry. I'll spend today doing that, catching up on my writing (oh my, month is halfway over), and vacuuming up random dead crickets I keep finding and then WORK. My MRI is tomorrow and I'm just trying to get all of my ducks in a row before surgery.
