What a cute book, Bren!..... =)
I wish you still had email....
Since you don't, you're getting this thank you message here!
Thank you SO much for the Christmas card and gifts! I love the bookmarks SO much and the Mork keychain too! You made my day! The seahorse one will go with my seahorse books and the Gumby one with a Gumby book and the others are perfect for any book, since I love nature! The keychain is going to come with me when I'm driving as a reminder to hang in there!....
I have not gotten Christmas cards done =( Or put up a Christmas tree here at my mom's =( OR gotten her any gifts either =(
I've been SO exhausted from not getting enough sleep and rest trying to care for her 24/7 by myself that my heart was beating really erratically for the last few days. I seriously didn't think I was going to be here typing this. I've literally just been waiting on her and trying to lay down when I can. I make sure she's dressed and fed, but not myself! Whenever she gets up, I get up to make sure she doesn't fall.....
Anyway, my heart is a bit better today and I'm just resting. I was able to drive with a break in this rain, so her and I went and picked up my mail, which wore me out...
Anyway, I need to see your cat tree =)
I hope you're doing well, Bren and
Thanks so much again! Your thoughtfulness means so much to me! ttyl <3


hey sally,
glad you rec'd the card & keychain :)
sorry it's so hard for you right now, i really get it, & don't feel bad, i've been in basically pjs these days myself, snoopy, eeyore or wonder woman, which is laughable as i feel pretty pathetic these days with my own health challenges..
i'm dealing with migraine this morning as a result of getting upset/crying over 'kitty issues' (long story)
felt like maybe i was losing my mind or having some kind of mental breakdown :(
but if you're interested in the cat tree you'll definitely want to check out the weekend posts i have planned here ;)
also recently added this guy:


I just commented on your Gumby post! Ordered some, but taking forever to get here, so now not going to be gifts so will keep for myself (had gotten for me too). Loved the marketing photos for the sales listing on Groupon. Here is the link in case you saw different sales photos for yours:
I will definitely look this weekend to see posts about your cat tree! =)
And I'm SO sorry to hear about you having kitty issues and that your health issues have been so challenging lately too. =(
We definitely need a better year!
I feel a bit better today and hope to re-take a Gumby Christmas photo to email out (and post online on Christmas Day.) The first one was on an uneven surface and is crooked and I can't straighten it. I wanted to make Christmas cards with one of lighting director James Herreras photos that I bought a hi res version of for that purpose, but didn't get around to it. Now it's too late, so maybe next year if I can....
I hope your migraine gets better if it isn't already!
Thank you again Bren! <3 ttyl
