I’ve missed my blogging anniversary more than once. Maybe even several times, but usually not by more than a day or few. This time, it was by almost a month! Of course, we all know I had other things on my mind in June too. I tried to pretend I was just getting everything set up for a productive recovery, and that I was excited to have the surgery, get it over, and get back to normal.
Honestly though? The freak out I mentioned in my last post, Just Bought a Suitcase, was pretty much a month-long thing. In fact, until two days before the surgery, I was on the fence about canceling it entirely.
But I didn’t. And now, ten days post-op, while I’m not feeling great, I am feeling pretty good. I’m also looking forward to blogging more often. And definitely getting back to writing. Everything in me wants to be writing. But I’ll settle for moments like I enjoyed a little bit ago, when a sweet picture caught my eye. Before I even really realized it, I’d grabbed a pen and started writing because a future hero in the new series suddenly came into focus. Until that moment, he’d been nothing more than a name – and a vague face. Someone I’d bring to life at some point in the future. But now, he’s more real – and ahead of schedule!
Hopefully, this means I’ll be doing a little more each day. Because if I’m doing a little more writing each day, I’ll be feeling a little better every day. Right?
Okay. I’m starting to zone out. Technically, I kind of was before I even started. So I’ll cut us all a break and not ramble. 🙂
Until next time, I’ll leave you with a short video about a beach in Michigan. And I’ll continue to share videos as I write the series. I know there are those who think only the east, west, and Gulf coasts have the only ‘real’ beaches in the USA – but Michigan has some awesome beaches too!
