Notes: On Hiatus

I hate doing this, but we're going to have to go on hiatus through mid-July or so.  I wish we were at a break between seasons, but the timing is what it is.

Update on my personal life below the cut:

I'm just unbelievably stressed.  New job; getting ready to move; and above all angsting about whether I'll be able to sell my house.  Somehow I seem to have acquired a full-blown anxiety disorder where I really expect to be squashed like a bug at any minute.  When I was a kid it was hard to learn how to float because I didn't trust the water.  As I head into late-middle age that distrust is dialed up to eleventy.  Presumably I need better drugs.  Or maybe I can blame it on menopause. 

Anyway, there's an upside!  After I sell this house I will never ever subject myself to the stress of home ownership.  I can't wait to call my landlord and ask them to take care of the leaky toilet for me.  Meanwhile, I've decided it's time to get real furniture, so today I spent lots of money I haven't earned yet on a nice bedset and a really good mattress.  Tomorrow I go back for the sofa.  Which brings me to the big question for those who have ventured into my personal zone:

Leather or microfiber?  I really would like a leather sofa.  But I have three cats. Three cats who have completely punctured the one cheap leather bit of furniture I own.  Three cats who are older and skitterish and very unlikely to take well to having their claws capped by me on a regular basis.  So I'm thinking microfiber.  It'll be a little harder with the hair on the sofa problem -- which is no small thing when you have four pets (yes, there's also a dog.  I really am a cliche).  Anyway, the microfiber its more likely to bear up with the cats.  Thoughts?  Suggestions
