A Quickie

I wanted to offer a thanks to those who commented on my Thanksgiving entry. I hope your Thanksgiving was as nice as mine.

Laura, thanks for the encouragement. I had no endo pain on Thanksgiving (stress, maybe, but no pain, thanks to the herbals I'm using). I'll have to check out your book - thanks for the link!

southernwriter, I hate you. ;-) Just kidding. :-) Actually, I had an aunt who had no pain "down there," either. My mother had pain up until she had my oldest brother (who's 50 now - yikes!). Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

Buffy, it's not a bad thing to not have written something in your blog about Thanksgiving. Meh. It just felt like the thing to do. Besides, I didn't think I'd be making any entries for a little while. Imagine that! :-) But thanks for commenting, and I hope your holiday was nice and unhectic!

As for my writing...I'm almost up to 50,000 words, and am up to (I think) Chapter 18! I did a marathon session this past Sunday - about 5,000 words or so. I typed for an hour or so, got away from the desk, then went back and typed for another hour.

Worked for me.

Oh, and the reason for that session? Hubby and I went to the 212 on Monday, to stand in line in the cold...to get Enya to sign a special release CD! Woo hoo! She's so sweet; surprisingly, I wasn't fazed by the spectacle of meeting her. I shook her hand and told her how nice it was to meet her.

Hubby, also surprisingly, was dumbfounded for a moment; he was so cute! Especially when he tried to talk ("Um, you can hand Enya the CD cover now, so she can sign it" I said to a befuddled hubby). Then we made a day of it, heading over the Empire State Building, to the 102nd observation deck. Then it was down to the first floor for some yummy microbrewed beer and a touch to eat before heading over to Port Authority.

Don't give up - keep writing!

You can hate me. I totally understand. Are you feeling better? Hope so.

Was it Enya who sang for Enigma, or was that someone else? You'll be great at book signings. You'll put everyone at ease.

Heh heh, southern. :-)

Actually, until I got my period the other day, I was feeling quite good. My lower back is acting up at the moment; it seems like naproxen and ibuprofen are the only things to quiet it directly after my period.

Enya's sister and, I guess, a couple or some of her brothers, sing for a Celtic band called Clannad. I'm not sure if the band's still around, but I know Enya's sister, Moya, has started releasing some of her own stuff.

I'm hoping I get to the point of doing book signings! :-) It's weird, but hubby and I have met a number of well-known people over the years, and I guess I'm just at the point where it doesn't flip me out anymore.

Thank you! :-)

If you're getting a laparectomy (as opposed to the "through the belly button" surgery, here's some advice: Invest in a small pillow you can put on your tummy afterwards. Why? Believe it or not, it helped me deal with the pain down there. A slight push on the pillow and any pain I had diminished.

Good luck with your surgery.
