Looks like I'm starting to feel better. I was actually able to mop my kitchen floor yesterday. This is a good sign.
Today, I'm going to see if I can read. I got a book for promotinal purposes--and I'll be posting next week. I need to be ABLE to read it.
I know, that sound odds, but I haven't been able to read a novel without an exceedingly massive effort since, well, do the blog math. Focusing, concentrating, that whisked away "lost in it" thing--these have eluded me. I've had to stick with nonfiction that I can read in short spurts. I have barely been able to write anything creative. I couldn't edit worth a dang.
I did get to a few MINDFLIGHTS submissions this week, but tired quickly. And I don't mean tired sarcastically. I mean actually got brain tired.
A wonky liver and endocrine system plus family issues make for major suckage. Plus, a touch of depression from the body being off balance and the emotions in a bit of turmoil. Thankfully, the Big Blues stayed away. This was a chamber music version of the blues, and not the major symphonic one.
So, I hope you missed me. A little.
Trying to get back on this bloggy horse feels weird...
Anyone have terrific news I missed? Do clue me in. Link me to your news or something.
Next week brings a new CSFF Blog Tour. Soon, many of you will be NaNoing away (what, two weeks away?)
On the plus side: I've lost like 14 pounds. Some went off in a not altogether pleasurable manner (ie, I got some nasty, short-lived virus.) Oh, and I have a new pic of hubby. Since his face makes me happy, maybe it'll make you feel good, too. Voila:
He's so hot he makes me get all woozy. (No, that's not the stomach bug.)
I also got him some Halloween Art from Len of MonsterByMail.Com, titled "Count Chuckula, the TechnoMaster Vampire of Miami":
On the brain-stimulation, spirit-nourishing front, I just pre-ordered this baby:
Amazon has it at a nice, reduced price and if you pre-order it now, you get an additional 5% off.
I also ordered these:
I'd gone through a really apathetic state, hardly able to read the Word. Now, I'm like a woman crazed with thirst. I'll take thirst over the apathy any day!
The Mir is (kinda) back.
Lemme see about getting myself re-oriented.
