Just A Few Things

First off, I went to the doctor this morning and my surgery has been scheduled for July 22nd. That means I won't be doing the Bunny chat at the Samhain Cafe, but I might see if I can get someone else to do it for me.

Second, it appears that, while I was at the surgeon's, someone in China (CHINA!) got bored and hacked my email account. I've changed my password and it should be safe now, but if anyone gets a funny email from me let me know right away so I can take steps. If worse comes to worst I have an alternate email address I can set up instead of the one I'm using now, but it's a last resort kind of thing that I'd rather not do. I like the way my current email account is set up and it would take me a while to move all of my saved emails to the new account.

Third, we seem to be in the middle of a ginormous heat wave in my area, which means the kids are stuck in the house. Since I'm not allowed to run away screaming (thank you, hernia; thank you so much), and I don't have the escape of writing... something tells me my Ben and Dave book might wind up more like Belle and Rick's than I'd originally intended. The longer the kids are cooped up with me and Dusty, the meaner Dave sounds in my head.

Right now, he's planning on forcing Ben onto the Small World ride. It's not pretty. Before you know it he'll be dragging him out to buy a tiara and they'll be a vicious mauling right outside Pirates of the Caribbean.

Anyway, that's my current heads' up. I'll post again next week, sooner if something happens. Enjoy the rest of the week!

Sending good thoughts and medical mojo in advance of the 22nd. Hope the days until then don't prove to be too difficult. Healing hugs,
