I am the world’s worst blogger. No really, I probably am. Total slacker here. I’m so much of a slacker that I couldn’t even think of anything to post. So, thought I’d just stop by, say hi. See what’s going on. Might even whine a little bit. Because it’s my blog and I can whine if I want to.
As you may know, I live in Texas. It is effing hot here. It’s so hot that the lake nearest my house has 125,000 dead fish floating in it because the heat sucked the oxygen out of the water. But, we have a “cold” front coming. To celebrate, I ran straight to Target to buy a new trench coat.
Last week, I got rear-ended during rush hour traffic. The guy hit me so hard that he pushed me into the car in front of me and that car into the next car. But, now the car in front of me is saying I hit him first so the insurance battle is on. Folks, the guy in front of me shows – drugs are bad, mmmmkay.
No one was seriously injured from the wreck, but I had a mild headache for a few days and muscle soreness. So, at the suggestion of my husband, friends, parents and cat I went to the doctor last Friday. Nothing broken (my right arm was really sore) and just tense muscles, but the doc ordered a CT Scan to make sure I didn’t have a concussion from the accident.
My head is clear of a bleed, but the doctor found calcium deposits on my brain. It could be nothing at all (for example, my niece or nephew – can’t remember which – had a calcium deposit found during a sonogram, they are fine) but the doctor wants me to see a neurologist to make sure it’s not something else. We all knew I was a little checked in the head …
THEN (oh I’m not done yet), my last remaining grandparent died last week. I wasn’t close to her, but I felt sad for my dad. The woman did give birth to my father and without him, I wouldn’t be here.
So, that’s all I got. A whole bunch of whining. Oh, but I do have one bit of goodness. That agent that emailed out of the blue a month or so ago wanting to see a partial of Phoenix came back and asked for the full. Her assistant has been reading it and was very complimentary and said she’s totally engaged with the characters, loves the story concept and thought it was well-written. It’s now on her boss’s desk so let’s hope that all these bad things over the last week lead to something good!
So, now that I opened up a can of “whine-ass” feel free to use this blog as a forum to air your grievances. It’s a few months until Festivus, but who’s really counting?
