Out of Commission

So on Monday I had my tonsils removed and let me tell you, it sucks. I have been living off of beef brother, ice cream, and Popsicle. How sad is that? I am miserable and can’t swallow without wincing in pain. Also I have been popping pain pills like crazy. So I don’t even know what happens to the week. It like literally disappeared.

I am going to call my HR Dept to find out what I have to do to get back to work. It’s not like I am having a good time at home. I feel like I can actually do something.

So I am going to work on writing today and scaling back on my pain mes. No one likes to live in a haze. At least I don’t.


So this past two weeks have been anything but fun. I found out that I have to get my tonsils out. This will hopefully alleviate my upper obstruction respiratory issue I have going on. This is going to mean a week or two off of work and then hopefully only a week with non solid foods. I plan on loosing some much needed weight. So we shall see.

Also I know I submitted work to three contest and heard nothing from any of the. I don’t expect to win anything. If I do that would be awesome, if not, it’s back to the drawing board. Speaking of contest, I recently ran across a contest provided by HBO. If you haven’t heard of it, check it out:HBO

In other news, I am applying for a different area of my job. It’s the insurance side, versus the billing side. Yes I will loose the protection of the union, but other than that…it’s the same location and I heard it’s better than that.

So what’s going on with you and your writing..

Catching Up

I have come to accept a few things in life.

First being that Winter in the mid-west is now in late January to the end of February. Why does this matter? Simple because my work has decided to adopt an aggressive attendance policy.

This brings me to my next point, I”m already on a written Final for using my sick time. Now I have plenty of vacation and personal time left. There’s just something about waking up and being able to call off. Yep that’s me. Nice to meet you, I like to sleep in. This is my argument for being a writer.

Also have you heard about Mars 100? What do you think?
Mars 100

I can only imagine what this is going to look like. I can only imagine every space horror movie. I mean it’s Mars. Come on. Imagine the possibilities. I want to know who the 39 people from America are.

In other news I have to have my tonsils out. Who knows when? They were suppose to call me today, but didn’t, go figure. And then I found out I have irregular shaped red blood cells. No sickle shape, but….I’m worried. No answers as of yet.

Now I”m going to write until the wee hours of morning, because I can.
