Me, my health, and my writing
Well, here I am after successful cataract surgery that also gained me new Toric lenses that reduce the astigmatism in each eye. Vision isn't perfect, but I don't need glasses to find my way to the bathroom at night.
I'll probably need to wear glasses for the fine print. That's okay, I've gotten used to me in glasses. I'd like to say I don't need a magnifying mouse anymore, but, alas, I still do need it.
We'll see how it goes over time as the eyes heal. Hoping vision sharpens more as time goes on.
Also am dealing with something called gastroparesis. Yeah, I never heard of it either until last May. You have to be soooo careful, or you end up puking your brains out and getting severely dehydrated. I know. I've been in the hospital more than out it feels like because of this condition. Stomach slows down to nothing, and food sits there, rotting, until you're sicker than a moose. Not fun.
Not fun at all.
Okay that's the status of my health. Now, the health of my books. I'm hoping to move on with Dream Worker today. Have some new ideas to try out. I need to get into the swing of it again, and get it done. There's likely money in it for me for this one. :) So, I need to get it done quickly.
I want to quit the cleaning business and write for a living. I know, I know . . . big dreams, right? I like to dream big.
Well, it's the start of a new year, and I have a fresh slate to write on. Goals to achieve. Maybe I'll post those here as well as Accentuate Writers' forum. Keep it in my face.
Hmmmmm . . . a new desktop theme maybe . . . really in my face!
Okay, I'll be back at some point to share those. Come on back and see 'em!
Post a Comment new!
