Happy New Year and Desert Ice News!

All,

Happy New Year everyone! I hope someone bought Death a pizza from Chicago and 2017 will be much better. In my attempt to start the year off right, I have some news for everyone.

*drum roll*

Desert Ice is due to be released 1/31/2017 as an original fic through LooseID!

Yep, 2016 is not only the year I finished Sneer, but rewrote, finished, and submitted Desert Ice for publication!

I don't have the link yet to it (this will be an ebook). We are still finalizing things, but when last I spoke with my editor, we are still on target for the 1/31/2017.

2017 is the year when I kick off a whole new phase to my writing life.

So, Happy New Year! I will keep you updated.

Well..I'll give you an update..sort of

All,

I was hoping to make a big announcement by now, but something called "edits" has caused a delay. December 10th was going to be a big day for me, but now I'm keeping my eyes (and focus) on January 31, 2017.

Let's just say, I have been doing a lot of writing...and seemingly never ending edits. However, it's all worth it.

HUGS

Back and Feeling Good!

All,

Surgery went well. Recovery went well. Was a bit challenging due to some restrictions but in terms of health I'm doing great. In fact I feel better than I have in over a year. Just starting to get my energy back.

I do have other exciting news but am holding off sharing until everything is official and what not.

Anyway...HUGS to all.

Happy Spring Everyone!

Hey all!

I'm still here. Ok..so finished the writing project I was working on and I'm in a "wait and see" situation on that for now.

Have some new ideas trying to percolate their way up to my attention. However, as I get closer to my surgery date I find it difficult to keep from focusing on anything but it. I have to be honest, I'm scared and anxious. I've never had surgery before. I've never been under anesthesia like this before.

Everything looks good. I had my preop appointments on the 17th and my labwork all came back great! My blood sugar, cholesterol, vitamin levels, etc..all good. My EKG was good. I even blew my weight loss mandate out of the water! I needed to lose 6 and I lost 19. :)

What sucks now is I'm on a special diet. It's a liver reduction diet until surgery. :P It consists of a 4-6 special protein shakes a day. I can have broth and I can also have up to 6oz of protein (beef, pork, chicken, or fish) a day as long as it's grilled or baked. Let me tell you all...it's rough. It's also another reason why it's hard for me to think. I'm only getting about 1100 calories a day and I'm hungry! LOL

Anyway..just wanted to let you all know I'm still here. Haven't disappeared again. I'm also committed to keep writing. Now just need to figure out what I'm doing next. The good thing about surgery is I'll have two weeks PTO after and I'll have lots of time at home recovering! Who knows? Maybe I'll be able to start something new then?

Take care!

Not much writing this week

All,

Didn't get much writing done this week but did get it done today. Am going to write more this week. No excuses.

The end of Feb. is usually hard for me; it's the anniversary of my mother's death. I think I've posted this before that my mother actually died the same day the Buffy episode the "The Body" aired. As big of a Buffy fan as I am/was it was always the oddest of coincidences for me.

Anyway, despite all the of the turmoil I've been through this month I dealt with the anniversary better than I have in previous years. Still, I do think I let it, work, and prep for my procedure in March distract me.

I've been tasked with a big project at work doing something I haven't done before and it's required so much mental energy in addition to doing my normal day to day work. On the bright side it is an opportunity for me to shine. :)

Anyway..hope everyone is well.

What a Strange Month -- I Feel Like I'm Living a Strange Country Song

So...Wednesday night I get a FB message from my boyfriend of a year telling me he is breaking up with me and that he will not discuss it in any medium.

Who does that???

First off, everyone I'm good. I had reached the decision the relationship needed to end as well (the final straw being he chose to game with his friends the day I put Ollie Cat to sleep rather than stop by and see me). However, as an adult I was looking for a time for us to meet so we could talk and discuss face to face.

Anyway....I don't know how you can go from saying you love someone to sending them a FB message listing the reasons why the relationship isn't working and that you are ending it and that you won't discuss it period.

*shake head*

Anyway, I have a great support network. I'm actually doing really well. Had a slight 'moment' on Saturday when I was at a social function where he was also at (we have a lot of mutual friends and hobbies). However, I left early...took myself to Planet Fitness, rented a movie on my iphone and took a four mile walk on a treadmill while watching the film. I felt GREAT when i was done..as if I'd just taken myself on a date.

Got a good bit of writing done this weekend.

I don't know..maybe this is just one more thing I needed to clean out of my life to make way for the changes I'm making. Still, this particular person is one I will not make an effort to try and keep as a friend or a person I care about in my life.

As has been my theme for this year. Moving forward. :)

Hanging in there - Writing a bit every day

Hope you all are doing well. I'm still making headway on the project I've been working on since finishing Sneer. Don't want to say to much at this time. So close to finishing. It's been hard the last few days but I've been forcing myself to write every day even if only for a few minutes.

This weekend was really rough I just couldn't get my muse in gear. Tonight though she really came back to me and I can really see a way through this place where I felt like I was doing the equivalent of trying to run through thick mud.

Anyway..moving forward.

My surgery is scheduled for 3/31 and I will have two weeks off after it. I'm nervous and excited. I'm doing a LOT of prep work as this will mean some big changes in my lifestyle post surgery.

Been doing a lot of walking. Wear my fitbit all the time except in the shower. LOL I call it my leash. Still it's a good feeling when I check my stats and know I've made my step goal for the day.

Still missing my Ollie Cat but I know that time heals. Have great support from friends and family. My boss even gave me a lovely card.

So...that's my check-in.

Heartbroken

Today I had to put my wonderful cat OC to sleep. He had been with me for 19 years. It was the right decision but sometimes those are the ones which make you weep the most.

WOOT! - Great Day Yesterday!

All,

So my meeting with the surgeon up north went GREAT. I really really liked him and his staff! He's program is a little different and he is going to be requiring me to do a few more things I didn't have to do pre and post surgery but nothing I can't handle. Ok..I may be a little grumpy two weeks prior to surgery - will be on a liquid diet. :P Bleah..but worth it!  He'll also want me to stay overnight after surgery. Very nervous about that..never had surgery (except carpal tunnel) and never had to stay overnight at  medical facility as a patient before. In fact hosptials and stuff make me nervous.

Anyway..I'm excited and nervous all the same time. They are submitting my paperwork to insurance. I should hear in a couple of weeks about whether I'm approved. After that I'll have one more trip for pre-operative consult before back up for the sugery! They think we can still do this by the end of March! :) I'll still have to go back up for a check up every month for a year but..again all good!

Woot!

All still writing - moving forward with my health

Right now not working on anything to post..but maybe eventually it will be something I can share. The positive uptick to this is that I'm making a point to write..even if it's just an hour a day. I'm making time for it.

Work this week has been a bad week (though I have a great and supportive boss...so thankful). Despite the stress, unending phone calls, emails and troubleshooting I made sure I moved forward on the plans I've been working on to take care of me. I did not cancel or back out of the programs I've signed up for at work to better my health. One of the programs includes a free fitbit! So i'm getting that setup as I'll need to start wearing it everyday to track my movement. :) I have two programs which require a weekly committment. :)

Went to planet fitness tonight even though my SI joint was very unhappy. I pulled up Season 1/episode 1 of Vikings on my phone and put my time in on the treadmill while watching one of my fav shows. Then treated myself to sometime on one of their hydromassage beds. BTW if you are not watching  Vikings..I'm going to say two words to you: Ragnar and Rollo - I do not ship them cuz really the only ship that sails is Ragnar and Athelstan but oh my...do Ragnar and Rollo make my muse sit up and purr!

Tomorrow a friend of mine is going to do the hour and half road trip with me to talk to a surgeon about the procedure I've been working towards getting the last six months. My plan was to get it done at the end of March but since the surgeon I was working with is leaving town I don't know what this new surgeon's schedule is going to be lilke..or even if I want him do it (need to see how I feel about him). I had another surgeon's office call me today (still about an hour and half away) that is another possiblity.  We'll see.

I'm still very positive. Moving forward.

This weekend looks to be busy. Have a full day of gaming on Saturday plus my brother has a birthday and I've been asked to make a chocolate cake for him. I make the cake and frosting from scratch (no box mix) using dark chocolate. Ever since he first tried my receipe several years ago that is all he and my nephew ever want for their birthday from me. They swear it's the best chocolate cake. I'm always glad to be able to do something so personal and unique for them which makes them so happy.

Well that was a much longer checkin/update then I expected.

Hope all are doing well.

Little off Schedule

Didn't get quite as far as I would have liked on my writing. Needed to spend sometime with sweetie. Still should be where I want by tomorrow at latest.

OC seems to be doing a little better.

Work is picking up again.

All in all things are good.

One little bit a time

One day at a time. A little more writing last night. Not doing marathon sessions. Just about an hour in the evening. Will be doing more over the weekend.

Using the hard won skills of balance. LOL

Anyway...generally good. Have a big meeting I'm co-charing today at work. I'm excited about the work it's going to lead to but the process is a new one too me, it makes me far more visible then I'm used to being and the ultimate decisions we make we'll have impact on the area I work in for a long time.

Happy Friday all!
