My Bad

I know I haven't been around in the last couple of days, but we've had a lot (and I mean a LOT) of rain recently. A lot of rain means a lot of pain, so I've been fighting my arthritis and trying to get some work done.

As you can see from my progress bars, that didn't go so well.

The good news is, there's no rain until Thursday this week, so I should be able to get some stuff done. Yesterday I wound up spending about four hours researching magical herbs, colors and flavors for a Valentine's day short I want to work on when I'm not Bunny hopping. So even though that bar doesn't always move it doesn't mean I'm not doing something for the story. Research can easily take up an entire day. For Cat of a Different Color, researching albinism and blindness took up an entire week.

P.S. Speaking of Bunny's story, remind me to add Toilet Mouse.

Hi! Hope you are feeling better :)
I hate research, it takes to much time and I just don't like it :(

It could be worse. I could be twiddling my thumbs wondering what to write!

Of course, if it comes to that I know a few people who would start shouting "BUNNY!!" in my ear until I was done. :D
