I had been hoping for a good week, but I have to admit that this one’s taken the wind out of my sails a bit. We’ll make this recap short and sweet, though, so we can hopefully shuffle on towards a better week ahead.
Life Beyond the Blog
This weekend, I went to my grandmother’s memorial service, and since I haven’t been to anything resembling a funeral since I was…maybe three? It was a lot to process. It still seems strange that she’s gone even though it’s been two and a half months, and trying to process it is easier some days than other. The service, of course, made for one of the tougher days.
In more pressing news, the biopsy results from my rabbit’s surgery came back, and the mass the vet removed was cancerous. It seems like all of it was safely removed in the surgery, but we are looking at a type of cancer that has a habit of returning in rabbits, and I can’t help but get the sense I’m going to spend the rest of Moo’s life living in fear that her cancer will come back. She’s eight, and that’s absolutely old age for a rabbit, but I lost my very first rabbit to cancer, and I’m not ready to do it again. 💔
Looking for a silver lining, though, I have to admit that the news Nintendo released about the new Gigantamax forms brought a smile to my face (Eevee looks SO FLUFFY in its new form!), and that the newly announced possibility of an Ōkami sequel is giving me something to look forward to, even if it’s not a guarantee just yet.

The Week Ahead
I’m hoping the week ahead is going to start looking up, but I also have a heavier workload than usual, on the schedule for more hours than almost everyone except management. Around that, I’m aiming to get hard at work on further blog move prep, and on preparing for NaNoWriMo.
I’ll also be taking a class on learning to sew PJ pants, and I have shark flannel that I’m absolutely in love with, so that’s set to be a bright spot (provided I don’t completely mess up the pattern…); I always want fun new PJ pants, and I don’t have any sharks yet. Time to fix that terrible mistake!
I hope your week has been kind to you, and that the week ahead only gets better. See you all around. ❤️

I want to see your shark PJs when you’re done!!
I’ll probably post pictures to Twitter or in next week’s wrap!
Aw, sorry to hear about the results of Moo’s biopsy, but glad they seem to have gotten all of it! Hope you find some more joyous things this past week <3
Thank you. ❤️ I’m relieved the vet removed it all too, and just hoping Moo never has it come back. Fingers crossed, you know? 🤞
