The world conspires against me.  I actually had a week off medical appointments last week, and I think I spent most of it in disbelief.  Hoping that hospital visits will wind down now.  But no.  I had to go in on Monday, when they told me my liver values were up again and I needed another scan on Friday, and another appointment next Monday.  Oh, plus the surgeon next Friday.  And a meeting with a GI guy sometime in the future.

And I got called for jury duty AGAIN.  I swear my name comes up as soon as my three years run out, every time.

I have to get the car inspected before the end of the month, which is...really soon.

Let's not even talk about the plumber.

So once again all my attention is stuck on practical things, and not just practical but BORING.  My creative brain is sapped.

In happy news, my good college friend drove two hours to see me last Sunday and brought me a birthday cake!  Also, managing to go to Aikido again.  I feel pretty good, despite draining a liter of fluid from my chest every day.  I just really, really want a writing project compelling enough to keep my focus through all this medical crapola.

A belated happy new year to you all!

I'm glad you're managing to slid in Aikido between all the not fun stuff.

It's tough to feel creative when there are so many things going on. Have you tried daydreaming up a shorter project? Or working on something you trunked, but still love?

HI! I was thinking about you the other day--glad to see you updating! Sorry the hospital stuff has sucked so bad. :( :( :(


I know what you mean about the creative brain being sapped--not that I'm draining fluid from my lungs, but every time I've started something in the past few months, I've had time to get about a thousand words in and then I have to set it aside and can't remember why I wanted to write it in the first place. :( :( :( I will send your muse vibes to give you an idea!

Dutiful Juries
I have a theory that jury selection is not random at all. Instead, they just keep calling on anyone who actually showed up in the past. That's the only way to explain why I get called repeatedly and Charles has NEVER been called, even though he REALLY REALLY wants to be on a jury!

See you soon! Maybe we can wait for the plumber together...
