I did some writing! My mantra for the last few days is quit trying to reinvent the wheel as I’m rewriting some scenes. Yet I have to tear it apart to strip down Justice and Liza to their emotional honesty. Hopefully, the scene I just finished as I write this blog on Sunday will still look good on Monday
Friday we ended up in Urgent Care where I was diagnosed with a UTI. Wizard was a tad aggravated since I’d told him last weekend I might need to go to Urgent Care on Monday, then on Monday I told him I was fine. I wasn’t, but what can I say, my hatred of waiting around in doctor offices or urgent cares had me in serious denial. Once I mentioned to Wizard Friday that I was still having pain, he dragged my butt to urgent care. Wizard really doesn’t get the whole denial thing.
Annoying things piled up, including having to go to Jury Duty at 7:30 Monday morning. Wizard has to drive me and it’s a major inconvenience. I postponed it once for the surgery. I’ll take in my paperwork and see if I can get a second postponement. If not, I’ll stay there, but I can’t serve on a jury when I’m not supposed to drive (only to a nearby store), still in the neck brace and not medically released.
And I managed to re-inflame the tendonitis in my right arm when I was dusting. Dusting is an approved activity! All I was doing was lifting some lightweight files to dust under them and I felt the pop-burn. I was so mad, but really, it’s not that big a deal. I already have a doctor appointment on 14th, and he can do a cortisone shot. That usually takes care of it. I think the tendonitis stems from an injury when I was 15 and the horse I was riding fell. I leapt off, landed on my arm and tore a tendon or ligament. I don’t remember which, I just recall wearing the stupid sling that velcroed my arm to my waist. And FYI the horse was fine–or as fine as a horse can be that’s at a stable that let’s 15-year-old inexperienced idiots ride them.
But despite all that, I’m writing and trying to get this book on track.
How was your weekend?
