Surgery Went Well!

My carpal tunnel release surgery went well. I'm home, typing one handed and on pain pills. Getting the stitches out in a couple days, if all looks good I should be pretty much healed up by this time next week.

That would be wonderful.

Hope is to be back posting next week. Writing updates, life tidbits and food of course!

I'm so happy at this thought: In a single day, I should be able to make a double batch of chocolate chip cookies, write at least 1000 words, and fold the laundry. Without pain. All in one day. I don't think I've even managed two of those together without major pain in a long time.


Okay, enough pain killer induced rambling from me.

Going on Hiatus

This may be blog sucide, but I'm putting my blog on hiatus until I'm healed up after my carpal tunnel surgery.

The magical shot that made my wrist pain free has worn off completely. It only took six days for the pain to start to return. Now it's back full force.

My surgery is in two weeks, then supposedly only a week max of recovery. Three weeks means October.

I probably will be lurking around the blogosphere, commenting when I just can't resist, but I doubt I'll pop in with a post.

See you in October!

Never Forget

Sending you over to David Ursillo's blog post today: Forever Remember 9/11

It's a tearjerker. It's a good reminder.

Oh My! A Post!

Between my wrist, school and life in general, I got a wee bit distracted from the blogosphere.

I'm not getting anywhere with my Average Joe outline, despite the fact that I can now type at a pace I haven't in probably a year. (I did a quick online wpm test, came back as 89 wpm. Woot! - I got the steroid shot for my wrist, major improvement, but not 100%) I've been trying, but nothing good is coming to me.

Average Joe is stale. I like the bones of the story, I like the changes Joe will have to go through. But that's it. Anything I try to add to the outline is just filler, and it sounds like filler.

I've decided I am going to start writing it. That has my brain screaming in panic. It doesn't believe me that venturing into the unplanned isn't a death sentence. I believe it's what needs to be done. This story idea wasn't planned in the least bit. All the good parts I have came to me while writing little snips of a scene for the 2YN class.

I don't know how long it will be, I don't know if it will stay comedic. I just know that outlining is not working for this story. Time to try something scary and new.

Time to try being a pantser!

Short and Sweet

Still in crazy pain. Getting the shot tomorrow afternoon. Steroids - woohoo! ... yeah.

Classes started for me Monday. Only taking 3 this semester, I registered late, there were only so many open spots.. I'm not paying for a class I don't need, so I get to take 3.

I managed to work on my 2YN outline last night. No where near finished, and I need it to be. I'm pinning my hopes that this shot will really help.

And in the sweet world. Next time I make cupcakes, I'm trying this frosting: That's the Best Frosting I Ever Ate.

Have a great week everyone.
