Yep we have rain yet again and it doesn’t look like it will be ending anytime soon. Not that I’m complaining since everyone else is pretty much in a drought. My only issue is that every time the weather changes my head starts to ache. Today I’m not going to let that stop me (hopefully). I’m going to write. My system is finally getting back to normal since surgery and I’m hopeful that after next week I’ll be able to help it along even more. I say this because I never realized what physical activity did for your body. Granted normally after I workout I’m beat so having six weeks without being able to do any physical activity sounded like a blessing. Wrong. I haven’t felt like myself and there haven’t been that many days that I feel motivated to do mush of anything. On the days were we haven’t had rain and the humidity hasn’t been bad I’ve wanted to take my paddle board out but I can’t lift anything over 15lbs so that’s been out of the question. It’s only been in the last two and a half weeks that I’ve even made it out of the house to visit with friends. I’ve never had a surgery take this much out of me. When you add in the humidity I’m done for. The heat doesn’t bother me, I mean Dallas has heat in the summer, but the humidity that’s a different story. Last summer was worst then this one but it doesn’t help my head any. There are days I wish we were still stationed in Hawaii, at least there we didn’t get humidity and I could go play. Which is why I don’t think I’ve gotten much done lately. I have so much energy that needs to get out but I can’t do anything to release it. I hopeful that after the 1st that will be a thing of the past. I’ll be able to put my thoughts down on paper, right now when I have them I let them stew, and I’ll be on my way.
Wish me luck.
Yes I am alive, promise, but I’m not back to normal as of yet. I’ll be honest I though I’d be able to kick butt on the blogs & editing while recouping and I was so wrong. Having organs removed just makes you tired. I’m just now starting to feel up for writing, editing and what not. It sucks but you can’t fight nature, well you can but something may go wrong. Right now my days since surgery have consisted of waking up around 7-8 for the pups then going back to sleep for a few hours, then getting up between 9-10 for breakfast. Some days I’d be have another nap be up for a few hours then go to bed. You can see the issue right. I’ve been sleeping so much do to my recoup that I don’t even think straight. I haven’t been able to read much either, its only been in the last three days that I could start reading the ARC of Into the Woods by Kim Harrison. Its her anthology that’s coming out in Sept Oct time frame. It has short stories from the Allows and new stuff too. But here’s the thing I’ve had it since before surgery but like writing I haven’t been mentally or physically able to read. I say physically because I’ve slept so much.
Today when I sent to see the wizard I did to a little editing but I’ll have to let a couple people see the change to see if it will remain. And while I haven’t been awake enough to write or edits my brain has been thinking up new changes & ideas so be on the lookout.
I hope you guys had a wickedly cool 4th and week to follow. I’ll do my best to share my voice a little more during my recovery.
Today a new Artemis Fowl book was released & so was Deborah Harkness Shadow of Night.
So yesterday I had surgery and had to spend the night in the hospital. Everything went well and I was released earlier today. While there I was able to work on my review of Shadow of Night the next installment in Deborah Harkness All Souls Trilogy. Tonight I finished my review, I just need to type it up. So be on the look out.
Tomorrow check out Paperback Dolls for my latest article, I’ll also post it as well. I’m hoping Flyboy will take me to see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter so that I can write a review of the movie to go with the book review. Plus the Dolls are up for putting both reviews together, so cross your fingers that I’m feeling up for it.
Not much else going on, but I’ll keep you posted.
Yes this weekend I didn’t get anything done, I take that back, I did get some research material for the novel I’m working on that takes place in Austin. I picked up two travel books one on Austin and the other on TX. Yes I grew up in Dallas and I should know “everything” about TX but I don’t. I didn’t want to keep bugging my friends that live in Austin since they all have better things to do than answer my questions. I did ask them some but for the more general things I bought the books.
Saturday night I celebrated my friend and neighbor’s birthday which is when I got toasted. I’m not sure when I became a lightweight but I have. I had a total of 5 shots which toasted me. This never use to happen. Four of the shots were Tequila, really good Tequila, which I’ve had before. I’ve never gotten toasted after five shots, not even from Tequila. The last shot was of a Rum, again nothing special it was only one shot. I drank water before and after, during the party. So this whole turning 34 is not something I like if I get toasted after 5 shots. Personally I don’t care about getting older, the only issue I’m having is that I’m getting toasted.
The other reason I didn’t get work done is that a family member went in the hospital and things aren’t looking so hot. They are asking the family members to donate blood.
Today while at a doctors appointment I did some research. With the help of this research I’m working out kinks in Legacy and the books that follow it. I bought this new book the other day so I haven’t been able to look through it. Today however had time. I have a book similar to this tour book but this one has more info. I think I’m getting better info from what I’ve seen. Both books are on Boston which is the setting of Legacy and those that come in the series. From the little info that I looked at today I have a better grasp of little tidbits that will make the story more realistic. After just skimming over two chapters I have an idea of thing I can add.
The first one I bought in HI and their bookstores didn’t have many. Not that Charleston has too many more but I’m excited about this one. I still need to read more but I’ll be adding new information as I go.
Okay I’m not sure what else I need to write I wrote this post once but my phone had issues. I can’t remember what I wrote. It had been longer.
The tablet is about to die so have a great weekend I’ll see you next week.
