Okay, I confess. I meant to start blogging again this week. I have more than a dozen reviews to catch up on, and about half a dozen other things I want to talk about, and I meant to get back to that all this past Monday.
Look how well that worked out.
The biggest problem is the weather. I was doing pretty well, my incision’s healing more neatly and with a smaller scar than I expected it would, and my energy level is coming back, but then lousy weather hits and I’m shut down with pain. Rain and humidity were bad enough, but when there’s fog, I feel like I spend the entire day practically out of comission. Which is what happened on Monday.
On Tuesday I felt better and so I took my first non-hospital-related trip out, on the bus to pick up some snacks because dammit, I wanted snacks! The first ride was okay. I started feeling it about halfway through shopping in a single store. The ride back wore me right out.
And I was still feeling it yeserday, and had a hard time getting out of bed again, and while I could function, I was the opposite of comfortable. It’s all internal pain, in the hard areas caused by large numbers of sutures holding together a cut-open organ, and when I move, everything inside me moves and hurts.
And this morning, one of my cats decided that the proper way to get me out of bed was by jumping on my stomach. Surprisingly, it didn’t hurt as much as I thought it was going to, but believe me, that doesn’t mean it didn’t hurt!
So that pretty much put paid to me summoning the brainpower to write up reviews. I’ll try again next week.
One thing I can guarantee, though, is that there’ll be a post tomorrow. Tomorrow I turn 29, and in celebration, I’m going to be running a giveaway for a recently-released novel! Stay tuned for more details!
