Angelique was the old family dog, and after two years of illness she finally told us it was her time to go. We picked up Angelique at a shelter back in 1998 and were told by the vet that the puppy was too unhealthy and wouldn't live for very long. He advised my mother to just go adopt a different dog to save ourselves the heartache and medical expense. Well, 15 years later Angelique was still with us and suffered minor health issues until about two years ago when old age finally caught up with her. She was a good dog, strong-willed and stubborn like an ox. Angelique will definitely be missed greatly.

So here's the word count widget. I am going to try to put it up as a gadget later. Not sure how to do it though.

Now I just have to stop myself from playing Morrowind and reading American Gods for long enough to write another 5,000 words.

On another note keeping track of finances is both annoying and infuriating. It seems like every time you spend a penny, somewhere in the universe they are charging you a dollar for doing so. Banks are horrible, scamming monstrosities trying to spin you into confusion. Then, when you're bewildered enough they start throwing mysterious charges at you, and you're too perplexed to even question them. "I don't remember making tha... oh it's from where? But I've never really been there... oh so you're saying it's because... but that doesn't make sense... I guess... maybe... uh... whatever, here's all my money. Solve it."
But on a lighter and more positive note, I have a "pocket" watercolor set and a watercolor Moleskin notebook now and I'm loving the heck out of it.
