Things have been a little crazy in life lately.
First, it’s not easy to be homeless and try to keep up with a blog using Kindle. My laptop lost its graphic card long ago so to use that I have to plug in an external monitor which is a real pain in the butt when you’re couch surfing. All that aside, I got ill in May with bronchial pneumonia. After a round some antibiotics I got better but then received news my oldest sister had been moved to Hospice care at her daughter’s. She passed on June 14th, which is also my brother’ birthday. She’d been ill a very long time and I will miss the sound of her squeaky voice and her sharp humor.
RIP Sister Dear. I’m glad you’re no longer suffering. I will miss you.
While dealing with that I started getting ill again. After playing a game of tag to try to get in to see my regular doctor, I finally made it into see him and he ordered Xrays to check for bronchitis, pneumonia or COPD or…the C word. Happily, they came back showing that my lungs are clear. I do have sinusitis and a double ear infection compounded by allergies that have been kicking my ass since the heat moved in. (Did I ever mention I despise Summer?)
I was ordered to wear a face mask when I went to the doctor and to the hospital for the xrays. I’ll take a nice chianti and some fava beans please:
So as of tonight I’m on the Z-pack of antibiotics AGAIN. Hopefully, they’ll kick this thing gone. Wish me luck.
And I’m starting a small business doing tarot readings on the side to try to bring some extra money. I’ve been reading tarot for about fifty years so I’m not bad at it. If anyone’s interested in a reading let me know. I charge $25 for a reading. Yes, that’s cheap and that’s because I think everyone should be able to get a reading if they want or need one. I do them in person, on the phone, or via email. You get to choose.
And I managed to finish the rewrite of one of my novels. That’s 350 pages of HOLY COW: THE END! I’m working on finding a cover now and then I think I’ll self pub after I send it out to a few people to see what they think of the changes I’ve made. Tentative title: Child of Blood. Original title: The Ghost of Watcher’s Glen. There’s vampires, vampire hunters, a little romance, and, oddly enough: ghosts! I put a twist of the vampire legend – no, they don’t glitter haha.
That brings you up to date. What’s going with what’s been going on with me. How about you guys? (Is there anybody out there?) Anyone writing, drawing, or reading anything fun and interesting? Ready for summer?
It’s going to be hitting the 100’s for the next few days here in Maine: cooling center here we come. OY!
