It’s the day after Christmas and all through the house, I dragged my sleepy body, hoping for a nap.
Wait. That didn’t rhyme. Oh well.
Edit: This was meant to be brief. I’ve been working on this for two hours now. Enjoy.Continue reading “5th Night of Hanukkah/2019 Year in Review”

“When the Moon rides at her peak, then you heart’s desire seek,” says a line from the Wiccan Rede. I don’t want for much right now. Except maybe one or two non-material things that no amount of money can buy.Continue reading “The Last Full Moon of 2019”

Man, did I overestimate my free time this year. I didn’t think I’d be changing jobs (twice!), nor did I think I’d be so busy! I didn’t hit 50,000 words on NaNoWriMo, unfortunately. And I didn’t even get one of my reading challenges completed.Continue reading “Admitting Literary Defeat for 2019 and Planning for 2020.”

I can’t seem to shake this headache. I’ve had it since yesterday afternoon.
I know it’s not from lack of caffeine or water. If I got any more hydrated, my kidneys would float! I think I’ll try taking more ibuprofen when I go to bed, see if that helps.
In better news, my diabetes is officially under control with meds and the dietary changes I’ve made! My A1C, which was a 10.3 in April, is down to a 6.8! I still have to take my meds and watch what I eat, but now I know I can effect positive change on my life. It’s not yet more lost weight, but it’s a damn good start.
I’m going to go practice on Duolingo and maybe read some? I’ve been wanting to catch up on my #200Book Challenge.
Take your meds, folks!

Do I not have enough reading challenges for 2019? (Seven is the current count, with this one.)
Do I have far too much time spent not sleeping in the wee hours? (I’ve been awake almost 24 hours now)
Do I chill in the bathtub and read by the light of the shower light when I can’t sleep? (I don’t want to wake my Darling Wife)
If you guessed “yes” to any of these, you’re right!Continue reading “#ABC2019-The Analog Book Challenge 2019”
