A scare and odd thoughts

Last night I developed severe chest pains.  Now I have a very high tolerance to pain. I broke my leg in four places once, splinted it myself with newspapers and shoe strings and hauled myself in the suburban. (no I didn’t drive my husband was there but he just spotted in case I slipped when hauling myself into the vehicle).  This pain was about the worst I had ever felt. My lungs felt tight, I wanted to panic but kept reminding myself to do abdominal breathing and try to relax.  It’s a strange sensation, it’s a pain you want to run from but can’t.

Sorry I've been gone

I finally have a chapter out to the Beta's. If it doesn't come back bleeding and battered it should be out soon. 

Fall has been pretty bad.  My commute now takes about 4 hours a day. which is ridiculous and very wearing as I am now driving by myself. And for those of you who don't know this DC officially has the worst traffic in the nation.  I used to write late at night but i can't do that and navigate the freeways of DC safely.

In good news, I've had a great Christmas. My husband bought me lots of stress relieving toys and computer programs.  I managed to find things that weren't on the kid's lists that they liked better than what was on them.

I hope all is well with every one of you.  I miss you all.  My inability to keep contact with my friends is becoming a driving factor in my finding a new job. 

Another chapter up

It's submitted on teaspoon.  Hopefully it will get approved soon.  It's been interesting since my last post. I went to the UK visited Wales, England and Scotland.  I did see David Tennant in Much Ado About Nothing and was a stage door a few times.  On a Saturday I was thatched over by programs 

As you can see he was very close when that happened.  He is truly a lovely man who will continue to inspire my writing.

My work has moved to a new location and I leave home at 4:50 am and return around 6-7 pm depending on traffic.  The long days make it hard to do much else as you can imagine. Good news is they are going to start allowing me to telework, just one day a week to start then possibly two.  That will help quite a bit both me and the car.

On the health front I had an MRI last week.  I'm in the process of making an appointment with John's Hopkins to see what we can do.  I'm very nervous when it comes to my spine and want the best if I can get it.

I'm starting on the next chapter now.  I hope to have it up before the end of the  month perhaps sooner.  I'm sorry I've been absent.  I'm still trying to get back into the rhythm of things.


Well finally got the next chapter in Enemy Unseen posted. Life has just been very hectic.  Work is topsy turvy.  It's been really wearing me out.  Sorry I have been absent for so long.  Hopefully I am getting things worked out to the point that I can be more active again. 

I missed you all.

Biopsy Results in

At last.  No malignancies.  Yeah!  Now I have a term paper to write this weekend and then it's back to fan fic.  There won't be any classes for awhile to interfere.  :)

Good news

The scope came out okay.  The doctor thinks it is just inflammation. He did take some precautionary biopsies just to be sure. I'll have the results from those in a week or so.  I feel so much better now.  It's amazing how much having something like this hanging over your head can take out of you.  So back to writing and other fun :)  Thank you everyone for all your support and putting up with me on this. 


I have the next chapter posted today.  It was a bit complicated to write.  I thought I was going to cover it in a few paragraphs instead it became its own chapter. That happens to me a lot.

Today is my 30th wedding anniversary.  Yes folks there is someone who has actually been willing to live with me for over 30 years. 

I also today for the first time since my ankle was fused rode a horse. The plan is to get back to the point where I can go trail riding with my daughter.  Hopefully this spring.  

I hope everyone has a great new year.
