Catherine 2 - Universe 0

~Orbit made it safely to his new home and I only cried a little bit upon his departure. Truth be told, I received a copy of a picture of him and his new mom and I feel much more at ease. The mom looks like MY mom, who Orbit is familiar with. So now I'm not so worried that he'll be all confused and feel abandoned again.

~I appeared in court today and managed to negotiate a 30 day continuance for the purposes of negotiating a universal settlement of all pending litigation. I didn't sound like a complete idiot. Wish me luck that we actually settle this because I do not relish the idea of having to make losing arguments.

Neither of these two happenings were as bad as anticipated, so I'm hoping my appointment tomorrow morning follows that trend. I'm fully prepared for bad news, so I guess that's good (I apparently did learn something in the Girl Scouts). Of course, it all could go to hell in a handbasket if the universe decides to exact its customary pound of flesh.

Until then...some pretty diversions...

My crocuses.



Xavier's christening gown. It's now twice this size, on it's way to three times this size. Two weeks...I have two weeks. Now I know what it feels like to work in a sweatshop. (just kidding of course)



At least I have something to keep me busy when I can't sleep tonight.

Gotta go...more stitching to do...

Beautiful flowers, beautiful christening gown! Congrats on good outcomes on nerve-wracking things. Hopefully you can negotiate the settlement.

Will be thinking of you tomorrow and sending you positive vibes to block and flesh nabbing the universe tries to do tomorrow. *crosses fingers*
