    But doesn't that mean more money for even more promo work? Win/win, yes?

    Oh and we started the process for buying a house.
    That's awesome. Congrats on the house eqb! House warming partay!

    I hope that's a good fork in the road (pardon the pun) JC.

    You are the busiest cat DJ I know. (most are lazy, ya know?) Good luck on everything. You make me tired just reading your post.

    Yay!

    However, barely home and already on the computer? Shouldn't you be taking a long break from this modern technology? I hope your recovery goes well Miss M but remember to REST, and follow up on whatever physical therapy the doc wants you to do. I hope this latest surgery finally gives you some long term relief.

    Thought about you a lot this week. It's good to know you're doing better.
    I still poop rainbows.

    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own.

    That is one heck of a view. Gorgeous!

    Hey fangsters who can't make it to RTCon, do you have promo stuff you'd like me to hand out so I can pimp your books?

    It looks so perfect for writing and relaxing with a good cup of coffee/tea. A fire pit when the weather is cool.

    I'd buy just for that view, despite the renovations. It wouldn't be the first time we would have to renovate.

    Pretty much why we went ahead and offered on the house. The kitchen is a wreck, the bathrooms are 1960s ugly, but the view is amazing. Oh, and imagine you can hear a waterfall from not too far away.

    Finals are in 2 weeks, and then I'm going to France.

    *side eyes life*

    Eqb, that view is gorgeous! And that pool is lovely. I'm sure it's worth the kitchen and bathroom.

    Um...I feel like crap.

    Yeah. That about sums it up. I've left the severe pain part of recovery and have entered the "Oh, I'd feel better if I could just stand/sit/lie down on my back/side/side and write/edit/clean house without pain/pain/pain." portion of it.

    *sigh*

    I'd rather have the pain. It's a hell of a lot easier to medicate incision pain than it is to medicate sheer unadulterated boredom. But enough about me--how are you?

    At school. But now we're entering finals week(s) and I'm procrastinating. So I decided to stop by here because it's probably more entertaining than my usual methods of procrastination.

    I'm sorry you keep having so many back problems. Back injuries are the absolute worst. You can't move or do anything. (Have you tried acupuncture? It helped my dad a lot. Some therapeutic acupuncture after you recover from surgery might prevent future injury?)

    LMAO--!

    Gods love you, child, but if anyone tried to do acupuncture on my spine, all that will be accomplished is a mess of bent needles. Unfortunately, the best case scenario for this surgery is a 40% reduction in pain, maybe 50. This surgery, however, did (hopefully) create a successful fusion to stabilize that broken disc which will prevent the damned thing from causing any more damage.

    While in Paris, be sure to start your mornings off at a neighborhood patisserie. Croissants with butter--real butter--dipped into a cup of steaming French coffee is absolute bliss, and only to be bested by dipping said buttered croissant into got chocolate made the REAL way.

    I know it sucks, but I'd rather you be bored then in severe pain. Continue to be bored and rest. Rest, rest, rest.

    Don't you DARE try to clean any portion of the house. Do we need to send someone over to watch you 24/7? Stop it. (Even if you haven't actually attempted that, I know you're thinking about it. Stop that too.)

    *looks up from dusting*

    I'm sorry--what did you say?

    Unfortunately, tonight I kind of have to. My daughters are on the way up with the babies--and Addyson is a LITTLE baby--two months old. I have to de-cat hair the living room before they get here.

    Your daughters can "de-cat" hair the living room when they get there. Or at least one of them can while the other watches the babies.

    Stop it. You are going to regret it later. You know you always do too much. You need to rest Miss M.

    We need another AW member to go over to your house and dust for you. *sends a shout out*
