About Angela

Reader of all things I can get my hands on, most of it turns out to be worth the effort. I love books and everything about them, and will read a book in a day (if only my schedule would allow this anymore!) I work entirely to much, and don't relax enough. I am a single parent of girls which takes up 110% of my time, but I make every effort to get some "me" time (meaning, I get to read a chapter without hearing "Mom, she's looking at me again!") I have begun editing and proofreading for writers. I love everything about the English language, as challenging as it is! I am also great at editing for punctuation, point-of-view, themes, exposition, and subplots. Character development is what I love to focus on, as well as what I call the scenery of a story. Can you see in your mind's eye what the author is trying to convey? This is so important to the setting of any book.

International Cat Day

Do you want to know what one of my cats did to me today? On International Cat Day?

About gave me a heart attack this morning! When I went to be last night, Franklin was underneath the blanket and sheets with me…when I got up at 4am, he was nowhere in the house.

Apparently my 16 year old daughter has a hole in her bedroom screen that I knew nothing about, because her door is always closed 24/7 to keep her hamster safe from the cats. She took her hamster to her Dad’s with her Sunday, so her door has been open.

I do not know exactly where he was, and my daughter and I looked all over the neighborhood, but he came back on his own.

I am now actively shopping for GPS trackers for both of my jerk cats; I cannot emotionally handle even one more escape 😦

If You Are Thinking About a Hairless Sphynx for a Pet…

… mind you, I would not give up my boys for anything. But I had to bathe Franklin today after he had a bath a week ago. 

His ears collected that much wax, and at two years old, he still hasn’t figured out how to NOT poop on his webbed paws and bring it upstairs with a bunch of litter.

His bath was not too traumatic, but I guarantee I am bleeding on my shoulders and back from him trying to not get in the water.

Oh; and I trimmed his nails after this.

You have been warned…
