Sometimes it happens a lot. Explodes kinda. I recently found out I’m becoming a godmother! I’ll try to be the nice one, not the one who curses the whole castle.  No promises.  🙂 We’ve been to 2 out of 3 baby showers, being the first grandchild in both the mom and pop-to-be’s families, everybody wanted …

The next few weeks, or months, will be crazy busy around here.  That probably means my 2x a week blogging schedule will get even more screwed up than usual. Thursday, I’m in town until 9pm for a writers group. Friday we leave for Ad Astra.  Get home Sunday late at night, and I should go …

It’s been ages since I posted, I’ve been crazy busy, and the world has just gone crazy. After my mom’s wedding a little less than a month ago, I worked a book fair, dealt with pain levels that would make a grown man sob hysterically, attended two milestone birthday parties, started a garden, had three …

Tomorrow morning bright and early, we leave on a ten hour drive to my Mom’s to help with her wedding.  It’s both stressful (Mom reports turning into a 16 yo bridezilla) and incredibly cute. So, I spent all day yesterday packing for a 2 week trip, and was supposed to spend today getting the house …

Well, so far today. Major pain from being in town yesterday. I had a Dr appt, where she doubled my morphine dose (that’s always a good sign, right?), told me the xrays of my back revealed “significant erosion” from L5 to L3, and there wasn’t enough healthy bone left to try to operate to fix …

8000 steps yesterday, and every one hurt. I’m supposed to do 1500-2000 steps a day. I did 4-5 X that much. Owie! But I’m back, almost in one piece, and eager to get editing my fantasy epic.  April is Camp Nano, and I’ve chosen to edit my book so that it makes sense, tighten it …

Today I am starting to organize myself for the Beltaine Craft fair on April 23rd.  Yes, that’s a long ways away, and yes, I do need to start this early. Part of it is my chronic pain making the necessary bending and lifting almost impossible, and part of it is my #mybrainisajerk syndrome.  It works …

As I sit here, arthritis and migraine in full swing, I think… “At least it’s Spring”.  Because it has to be damp and changing air pressure to hurt this bad, right? But the window proves me wrong. Or proves that old adage “In like a lion out like a lamb” wrong… BECAUSE… it is snowing …

Before I begin, I have to share THE best “what do you want” face I’ve ever seen.  My Yeti, upon being awakened by my uncomfortable shifting around on the couch! So, Friday evening at about 9pm, I start getting a pain in my upper back. No biggie, I think, My arthritis is acting up because …

Like , um… bread and grain? Yesterday was a day of meetings. Doctor appointment, coffee with a friend, grocery run, counseling another friend, friends for supper and a seminar on self-publishing options at night. I walked over 6000 steps.  OMG, am I in pain today. I normally walk about 2k steps. With many sitting breaks …
