So, we're less back than we wanted to be.
We really wanted to finish the Amoeba X-ing storyline and we're glad that we were able to. We were hoping that momentum would carry us forward. That was overly optimistic.
The pandemic is still on. We're kinda going crazy staying at home, but it's the safest option for us and those around us. Isabel's art anxiety has gotten worse. We're not ready to come back yet. Sooner than later, we hope. Not as long as last time. But not right now.
We're back! Update schedule is, well, we'll see how things go. We thank you all for coming back.
So how are we doing?
Well, main thing is comics are on hold until further notice.
Physically? We're ok. We're staying indoors. We work from home. Haven't left the house in months apart from vet appointments, and we know we're both lucky that we're able to do that. If you can stay home or socially distance or wear a mask, we really appreciate it and thank you for it. We want this whole pandemic thing to be over, because, like everybody else we're kinda tired of it by now. But still staying home.
Mentally? Kinda bad right now, to be honest. 2020 kinda sucks. Everything is just so much right now. It's hard to be creative.
Comics? On hold until further notice. I really don't know if or when we'll be back. I'm sorry. Some days it feels like we've been slowly running out of steam for a long while and these are not energizing times. If we come back, I'd rather we do it vigorously instead of in fits and starts as life wears us back down. I'd hate to say we're coming back, then we don't or we stop after a few updates.
Expiration is turned off for NamirDeiter.net accounts. If you supported us, we sincerely appreciate it and hope you enjoy the backlog of content we have up there.
Cats? Doing surprisingly well so far. Buttons' thyroid treatment was a success. She's put on at least two pounds, which is good since she was on the low side of four pounds before all this. Momo is still around. Her kidneys weren't in great shape at the start of all this and they're very unlikely to have improved. She's doing better than we expected, but we know that won't last forever. Every extra day we have with her is a blessing and we're grateful for it. Beowulf is doing good, to the best of our knowledge. He doesn't have any complaints as long as we feed him before we feed the other cats.
Buttons has been upgraded to "hardly radioactive at all" and we no longer have to socially distance from our own cats. To be honest, she's kinda standoffish and we're not 100% sure that she noticed. But we did and we're glad to have her back in melee range.
Buttons is doing well. She got the treatment on Tuesday and we're picking her up Saturday. It turns out that I misspoke about the treatment. Y'see, it's not that we have to wait to pick her up until she's no longer radioactive.
We have to wait until she's less radioactive. What's the difference? Twelve days, apparently. So we get her back sooner but shouldn't be next to her for more than an hour a day. We'll see how she feels about that when she comes back. She might decide that that's an hour too much.
But even if she's not on speaking terms for a few days, we'll be glad to get her back. There is, globally, kind of a lot going on right now and we could stand to have, at least personally have one thing back to normal.
