Another new lady! LOVE her. I'm almost finished with this new batch -- whew!! My eyeballs literally started to hurt yesterday from staring at the computer screen! Speaking of eyeballs and hurting, our canine son Leroy has to go to the dog opthamologiist today for possible melanoma on his eyeball. Cross your fingers for us that it's just a cyst. If it's cancer he'd have to have the eye removed and that would be very sad for our old boy (14), though he's a tank and could totally take it! Still, yeesh. Fingers crossed.
[update: WHEW! It is not eyeball cancer. Whewwweeeee! Just a cyst. Did I say whew? It's been exactly a year since Shiloh was finishing radiation for her nasal cancer (we lost her in January), and I was really really really hoping there would be no more doggy cancer. WHEW!]
On a cheerier note, more Jane Austen quotes:
"The person, be it a gentleman or lady, who had not the pleasure of a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."
"A woman especially, should she have the misfortune of knowing anything, should conceal it as well as she can."
"You are too sensible a girl to fall in love merely because you are warned against it."
"I do not want people to be agreeable. It saves me the trouble of liking them."
"Where so many hours have been spent in convincing myself that I am right, is there not some reason to fear I may be wrong?"
"But there are certainly not so many men of large fortune in the world as there are pretty girls to deserve them."
