Vacation, Writing and more

75ac72d6bd2bf836035e2d1aada9cb8dThis is how I’m feeling since I’ve been back from vacation. Pleasure is important–whether it’s physically or emotionally. I had a great time with my family, but I knew when I got home, things were going to change for me both at my day job and for my writing. Little did I realize how true that would be. My left hand, which is my dominant hand, has been giving me issues for a while, stepped it up even more. I’m now wearing my hand braces more. Worse, I have to wear the compression gloves pretty much every day at work and at home. When I see my specialist, I have a feeling we’ll be negotiating on cortisone shots and possible surgery. *whimpers* Until then, I’ve indulged in some pleasures– reading, learning about real food, my aromatherapy, and indulging in my energy readings.  Continue reading

cynwritetalkI’ve been woefully inadequate about posting lately, but I’ve been doing the EDJ, taking workshops, taking care of my health and trying to write.

It’s neat having 3 days off, but those 4 days on do kick your ass. This is no joke. But there is another reason for my being quiet. I knew something was off on my stomach recently. There was a bulge when I sat up or when I moved around, even when I pushed against the counter to do dishes or clean up a bit. What I didn’t expect was the aftermath which followed when I told my doctor in my first checkup of the year. I figured it was a hernia. I was right. That said– there was more to it than that.  Continue reading

Looking forward to 2014

22160-Clipart-Illustration-Of-A-Yellow-Emoticon-Face-Wearing-A-Party-Hat-And-Blowing-On-A-Noise-Maker-At-A-PartyRight now, I’ve gone through my first week in transition at my day job and learned I will never learn it all. More importantly, I learned being sick my last week of training is not recommended. My male got sick after– not good. Then having the holiday ruined more writing time because the male was sick, his mom was here and just things got away because my sickness wasn’t completely gone. Continue reading
