Warrior cats - Loving it -

I started reading Young Adult mainly when I was doing beta reading for Kristophrenia. I loved her stories and it opened my eyes to how much I enjoy reading Young Adult. This should have been no surprised given I love watching all the kids shows!

I've been reading the Warrior Series. I'm on the 3rd: Forest and Secrets. I'm soo tickled that I have so many more to go.

How to Beta Read when the cat says otherwise

Typing with a cat on the lap can not be done in some cases!

I was trying type up my comments (thus far) for Bevie's A Traitor in the Midst and Amelia decided she wanted to sit on my lap. There she is, head on the laptop, the paper behind the laptop, I had to stop writing notes. On the upside, I instead continued reading! (That's Scarlett on my legs)

I was flying this past weekend so it was nice having a good story to read on the flight and made the time go by quickly.

I've gotten behind reading blogs, the latest stories at Legion of Online Super Hero's because I've been busy with volunteering, traveling, and now I'm trying to focus on finishing Bevie's story.

Tell me, what do you do when you need to get up (maybe to go to the bathroom, make dinner) and you have a kitty all comfy on your lap? Do you wait it out? Hold it as long as you can?

Little Scarlett is currently sitting on my lap, however, my husband is threatening to get up, as he is on crutches, my Scarlett is sure to run away. I've been trying to convince my husband to stay still!

I missed my kitties while I was away - but I had a lovely time with my family. My sister and I worked out together every day. I have a wonderful family and I love to spend time with them!
