I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

Sidebar Changes, NaNoWriMo, and other ramblings

This is probably the most boring blog on the planet these days, but here I am anyhow. I'm just writing to say hi, and that I removed several widgets from my sidebar that were either no longer relevant or no longer working. If you see any issues with the sidebar or any part of the blog, feel free to email me about it. For the record, I'm using Chrome, and it looks ok from where I'm sitting.

As you can see, NaNoWriMo has reset, and is less than 2 days away. I'm bound and determined to finish the first draft of The Children of Mossy Hollow, as well as work on The Kate Letters and a personal memoir. Between the three of them, I'll have no problem reaching the finish line. I just have to focus and get it done. I'm weak and exhausted, but otherwise I have no excuse. I've been working on The Children of Mossy Hollow since 2013. I WILL FINISH THAT DANG NOVELLA, YOU HEAR? That's me, talking to me. It will be done.

I haven't decided what I'll do about blogging next month. If I get a wild hair and want to write something that is relevant to my life (like renal clinic on the 14th), you're sure to hear from me. But I'm going to do my best to focus on NaNoWriMo. Never fear, my faithful readers, I plan to unload plenty of posts in December, especially since I need to play catch-up. It'll be real, it'll be fun, but it's probably not gonna be real fun. I'm too old and tired for that. I digress.

(My sense of humor is hanging by a thread these days. Bear with me.)

It's time to drink some potassium and lean on the sink to wash a few dishes. I'm struggling lately, but it's that time of year when the weather fluctuates so much, my body doesn't know what to do with itself. It's being a jerk right now, but I am hoping for better days ahead.

Talk to you soon.

Carpe Diem Journal: Today I Will... (10/21/16)

I managed to get every bit of this done today, in spite of my exhaustion.

I am so ready to go to bed, though, so I will talk to you later.

Quick MDA clinic update - Oct 2016

My chronic pain was acknowledged, my proximal muscles are continuing to atrophy, and there is nothing they can do to help since pain medications and exercise make me worse instead of better. Orders are to continue seeing my other doctors, take all of my medication, be mindful with my diet, avoid triggers when possible, rest rest rest, and return for documentation in one year.

Renal clinic is November 14th.

More blogging soon.
