I have two blogs and not enough time for either of them at the moment. It's partly a time thing and partly an inspiration thing. Granted my plots are "marinating" when I'm not actively writing, but I worry about when/if I can get back to it.

I'm really starting to think there's something physically wrong with me. This is the third day in a row I've felt weird. But I won't be able to get to the doctor til next week.

I'm probably over-reacting. I tend to do that.

On the bright side our puppy is wonderful!

For a few years now the tip of my pointer finger on my right hand has been reacting badly to being squeezed or hit lightly and even have pain when I'm not doing anything with it now and then. I was playing with something and it hit the tip not very hard but the pain was extremely bad for a few minutes, it still hurts a little now. I had to stop using it on my mouse and learn to use my middle finger for it. I think I over used it when I first started to use a computer, it's the only thing I can think of.

Sorry about your finger, Sonja. Did you hurt it at all in childhood? Sometimes nerve damage doesn't show up until years later.

I seriously overdid the pruning on Sunday and I've still got swelling and pain near my thumb. All to no purpose as well: baby walked right into a branch that I missed.

Kids are going nuts today and five year old has his dental work (under general anasthesia) tomorrow. Fun, fun, fun.

I don't think so, but I know about 15 years ago or so I cut it a little bit opening something with a knife but not sure it was that bad to do what I'm feeling now. This was one of the worst "attacks" I've ever had, the pain was with me for a few hours afterwards but not as excruciating as it was at first, just a low dull pain.

Had a migraine/bad head. It started last night, but I thought a good nights sleep would sort it. Instead, today, my day for 'doing' has been spent in bed loosing hours. Literally. I took the children to school, got home made a cup of tea and some toast so I could take pain relief, eat half a slice of toast and took the pain relief. Three quarters of an hour later I woke to drink my tea. This was happening all day! Even after I collected the children, made a cup of tea, and went to lay on the bed....woke up an hour later. Still tired now.
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx

3 out of 5 estimates on my camaro totaled it since the frame is tweak by more then a inch and a half,and since the insurance company is not getting involved cause Cox said they'ld write me a personal check we're debating what to do, we know they will not pay us for what it was worth.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

One of my favorite animals is dying, suffering a lot, and since we are only caretakers, not owners, there isn't much we can do but watch. Samuel is a donkey we have had around the pasture for years, packed quite a few miles with and I have taken him on occasional outdoor speaking events. He used to belong to our friend AliceAnn -- a lady who founded the local shelter, then retired and got Sam from a wild-donkey rescue program, taught him to pull a cart, and then, in her 'retirement', would take Sam and cart to inner-city areas twice a week to give the children rides.

Now he belongs to another nonprofit that can't afford the vet bills but won't release him to us, and so far they have not returned my messages. If this goes on much longer, I'm going to call our vet an have him put down without authorization. Sammy deserves a better death.

Prices on Amazon UK shot up today.
(I have about 300 items as saved items in my basket and every time I go there it tells me any prices that have changed since I last looked. Many if not most of them were up by anything from 1 to 3 pounds.)
Prices do vary constantly (I presume exchange rates have much to do with it) and many may go back down again at some point.

My laptop has been acting funky for a day or two, so I decided to give it a break overnight. This morning I got the white screen of death. And it wouldn't boot up. Did some Googling, tried a few things. I've got it running a fix program that hopefully will solve the problems. Very frustrating. All my writing and SCA stuff is on there. I've got it backed up, it's just really annoying.
