Writing, more writing, planning for writing, more writing.

I spent all day writing, except when I was organizing some writing, or learning a new writing program. I conceived and wrote the beginnings for 11 new flash fiction pieces. Tomorrow I'll write the middles, then Wednesday the ends (it's for an online class). I am currently the calmest I've been since, oh, May of … Continue reading Writing, more writing, planning for writing, more writing.

Driving=Hands on Fire

I am feeling awful today. All the driving caught up with me. My hands are on fire, I'm super accident prone, and it's had to be a rest day.

Writing Prompt Weirdness

This is basically how I feel every time I get a prompt in writer's class every week: Everyone else sees the normal bird and writes about it flitting around doing bird things and I see some crazy-assed alien in a shirred off universe and write about that and the whole class goes "what?" (Update: You’ll … Continue reading Writing Prompt Weirdness

Another Exciting Friday Night

Chronic illness style fun: My exciting night has been spent stalking my middle child at the football game via friends posts & videos, listening to top 10 lists on watch mojo with Nick, and generally resting so I can be ready to train new PTA leaders first thing in the morning. 🙂

Downton Abbey Movie!!

Nick and I had a rare afternoon movie date this afternoon. We grabbed a super quick lunch at Torchy’s Tacos, wherein I discovered the joy that is the happy corn side dish (unfortunately it was Nick’s- sorry babe!). Then we headed down to Time Square Cinema for the Downton Abbey movie. We’d bought tickets way … Continue reading Downton Abbey Movie!!

Afternoon house adventure

Came home to a gas leak at our house. But David got me chocolate, so I sat in the front yard eating Dove minis while waiting for the gas company. Fortunately it was breezy, yet not rainy. The guy showed up, walked inside, and immediately told me it was not the gas line. He did … Continue reading Afternoon house adventure

The Definition of Rheumatoid Disease Has Changed

Tonight I learned about how the definition of Rheumatoid Disease has changed in the last 15 years since I was diagnosed from just "joint pain and inflammation" to include all of my vast symptoms over the last five years (including, but not limited to, cardiovascular system issues such as high blood pressure, cerebral ischemia, heart … Continue reading The Definition of Rheumatoid Disease Has Changed
