clearing away the cobwebs
yes, it's been since FEBRUARY since I posted and the world has probably forgotten about me. but here's what I've been doing; my fiance Scott moved down to Gainesville to be with me and we began a house hunt. We found a house and moved in May, In June our house flooded from all the rain we got. there was literally 2 inches of water in some places. so we had to move to my parent's house for about 3 weeks. our two boxers are still there because they have had to gut our house and tear up the yard and regrade it. then put some sort of water diversion contraption in which includes a pit. yes, a pit. it will have rocks in it but it's still a pit. then in September my left knee started bothering me while I was training for the Survivor Mud Run(yes another one of those races) turns out it might be pretty jacked up. my knee. not the race. then a week ago I fell down the stairs and fractured my foot. at first they said it was a sprain but then they called the next day to say yes there was a fracture. so I have 2 jacked up lower limbs which compete for causing the most pain. but it gets better. being the independent person I am, I didn't let anyone drive me to work so I wore my support shoe to drive and then was switching to the air boot at work. well Friday the support shoe got caught between the gas pedal and the brake pedal. the gas pedal won and I plowed into the cement wall in the parking garage at work. so now the car is broken. I had a little meltdown/tantrum a few minutes ago because I was trying to do something and because of my injuries and crap being all over the floor of my study, I couldn't do it. so I flipped. I kicked my shoe off which careened off the wall narrowly missing Scott. poor Scott. so I thought I would come back to the place where I tell y'all funny stuff, share my book news as well as my other author friends news and complain about crazy things. this blog is like therapy so I decided to come back to therapy.
