It seems like I'm not making much progress. I do remember that I get this way every summer. No energy, no enthusiasm. I did not win my riches in Las Vegas, so I'm still working. :) Things there are still in a holding pattern as well. My eyes are now on September. It doesn't start cooling off here yet at that point, but I'm starting the process of looking for flights back to MO to visit, and it hopefully will be cooler back there by then.
The cats are healthy and I guess happy. Most of the time they are fun. Way too much of the time they are destroying stuff or accidentally(?) hurting me with their claws or teeth. Just playing. I'm learning to trim claws. Mostly Rasta, the younger one, is just too energetic and curious for my lifestyle. He also is the most affectionate one, which is what saves him. So far.
I now have insurance on the mobile home. The taxes are paid up. I'm totally legal. For now. For most of the other stuff, it's one step forward 3 steps back.
