Everything in my back hurts today, so I’m not feeling much like blogging or joining in the holiday spirit of things. Here’s Tumbleweed not cooperating as I attempt to take a picture of her in a sleigh. I’m doing a blog hop contest starting next week  –  I’ll throw up some more details about that soon.  (I’ll be hosting my portion of it on my official author site). However, part of the giveaway is a stuffed hedgehog. Alas that Tumbleweed refused to really want to be part of the promo shots… (This is her: “I’m going to crawl into your bed tonight and shank you” look.) A melding of minds, perhaps. You can see that the stuffed hedgehog is nearly actual size. 😀 But with far less prickle to go around… (Tumbleweed is unimpressed. Though she *did* lick its nose.)… Read more

Dreams and Portents and Pain

I couldn’t fall asleep last night. Even though I was completely exhausted from staying up the night before to do the edits, I just couldn’t seem to shut down.

Apparently my mother was there and she warned me to stop before it was too late, but in the end I ruined it and a man came and took whatever I’d come up and threw it away.

Also ended up with another round of shots in the spine today. After 20 of the little… Read more

Of course the problem with ranting on blog posts is that I so rarely have anything to follow it up with the next day. Not that yesterday was all that much of a rant, really. Grumpy observation, maybe? Tack that on to medical insurance issues (yeah, I’m loving that letter from the new insurance company telling me I must have Fibromyalgia and what they can do to help me. Um, hello? That’s one thing I *don’t* have, wonder of wonders.) I’m dying to find out how they managed to “diagnose” me from afar without any sort of proof. On the other hand, they’ve stopped paying for my chiropractic treatments. Because I should be fixed by now. If I’m not, I obviously have some sort of chronic issue and I’m not doing enough to take care of it. *headbash* Keep in mind I’m getting another round of Platelet Rich Plasma/Prolotherapy tomorrow.… Read more
