Here I am, back not only from my vacation, but also from our annual fall convention, the Connichi in Kassel.
I have a wonderful four weeks down in Italy. As always, the time there was much too short. *sigh* I posted a few pics over on Deviant Art, but I will be making an Italy post in the next few days. Just have to resize the pics for that. :)
Connichi was good, too. We upped our sales from last year, so that's good. We're still not rolling in money, though... >.> But the combined publishing company is working out really well, so I do think we have a chance on the market, even while up against the big publishers here in Germany.
I tried going back through LJ, but it's possible that I missed a post or two. If there's anything of interest, just point me in the right direction.
I *did* read the Facebook controversy and added my comment there. I'm glad that LJ has reconsidered its tactics. While I *am* on FB (mostly so I can keep in touch with my daughter), I don't want anything of mine reposted there. There is a reason why I am on LJ... permanently... :)
As always, while I'm gone, things happen...
While I was away, my still-husband managed to fall down the stairs and shatter his calcaneus (heel bone). He is now in the hospital for the fourth week and might be coming home on Friday. I've already offered to take him in until he can walk better again, since I can make up the couch in the living room for him, and he wouldn't have to walk any stairs.
Also, on Saturday, a week ago, Puntino (cat no. 3) must have met with a car or something, since he came home with a broken pelvis. He also spent a few days in the veterinary clinic, but is now home and supposed to heal naturally. Problem is: he wants to go outside and play... *sigh* I'm supposed to keep him inside for the next six weeks. We'll see how that goes...
Now I have to try to catch up with five weeks of mail and stuff that has been left undone.
So. I hope you're all well!
More about Italy, and pics, later. :)
