My writing, while plenteous in the last few days has become a bit jumbled. Oh well, your NANOWRIMO novel doesn't have to be good it just has to be 50k words long. I have to work on being more concise. I have written four chapters instead of the eight I should have according to my plan. Yet my four chapters are as long as the eight were planned to be. <sigh>That's the way it goes I guess</sigh> It is said that the first casualty of every battle is the battle plan so it is that the first casualty of a writing is the plan you intended to implement.



Mine is stable enough, though I have been having some low blood sugars (a 68 this morning, a 49 in my sleep a couple of nights ago (it woke me up, that's how I know you nit-pickers), and a 79 last Monday. I think this is generally due to the addition of actos to my protocol. They also added metformin but after two weeks without the diarrhea going away, I have discontinued. I had diarrhea continuously from 1999 to 2008. I am not going through that again.



Janet is on her way to pre-op on the 10th. I don't know exactly what that means save that she'll have a lot of blood drawn. The surgery is planned for the 17th. She will be inpatient for about four days. I plan to stay in Columbia for that time. I may stay with a friend, but I think I'm more likely to pick a hotel. The hard part will be after she comes home. She'll have to endure a month of restricted activities. The major restriction is "no driving." That'll maker her absolutely crazy.


Out and About

Contrary to my habit of nearly ten years, I am now getting out to the coffee shops regularly. I will give the credit for this to the new laptop. Now I can go, swill coffee, and write. I sometimes meet people there. Woo Hoo!

    It is my sad duty to report that my Brother Bob passed away from a heart attack on 1/31/13. I know he had many followers on Live Journal. I thought…

  • I spoke to Lutron today

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…

  • Another day another dollar. I need a rate increase.

    I have been cat-waxing all day. I really need to write some more on my NaNoWriMo novel. It is a take off on Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake…
