November….what was I thinking?! I am sorry for my absence. So many things are going on this month. I got distracted by politics and then was tempted to come here and have myself a political rant…and nobody wants that. Seriously.
National Novel Writing Month is happening. Sometimes without me. I built myself a great cushion at the beginning of the month so I am not too far behind. But I have hit my wall. It started last week, which is early for me. I usually don’t poop out until around the middle or end of week three! However, I am getting back on the horse today. Email me if anyone would like a word sprint partner, this seems to help me a lot.
Also, I belong to an online writing group that will be hosting a Sci-fi and fantasy book giveaway from November 20-November 26. See the link below if you are interested.
I will also be hosting an interview with the author of one of the books. This will happen here on Tuesday, November 22.
I had a mammogram and ultrasound on Thursday. I didn’t realize how freaked out I was about this until I was actually sitting in the waiting room and felt my shoulders up around my ears! It literally hurt to relax…But I had a lot of support throughout the day, which really helped. And everything looks fine. So far, so good.
Thanksgiving…Is everybody ready? These are some of the things I am grateful for this year: My awesome family – especially my son, my supportive and understanding friends, my rock star medical team, music, lime popsicles, my right to vote (yes, even when it doesn’t go my way), my life (this one should probably be higher up on the list!), time to heal, my sense of humor and resilience (I suspect I am going to need them), pantsuits, differences of opinion, kindness, Kleenex and chocolate cupcakes, my bizarre childhood and misspent youth, to be cancer free at three months out, that I can swear eloquently and in several languages, and that I am still allowed to express myself freely.
I would love to hear some of the things that you are grateful for!
