It’s been sometime since I did one of these but I figure might as well. My mother finished her Chemo this past month and she and I are BOTH very much relieved. She’s got some time though to rest and recoup before they move on to radiation, from what I understand. Thank you to everyone who sent my mother and myself good vibes during this hard time.
Emotionally it was hard both on my mom and myself. I know my Mother didn’t outwardly show it, but I think she was worried about her health overall. I know in my heart though she is where I get some of my tenacity from and I know she’s got several more years yet still left in her. 😉 🙂 I wasn’t really worried myself for this very reason. She’s a fighter.While she dealt with Chemo I was dealing unfortunately with my own emotional trials and tribulations in regards to someone close and very near and dear to my heart. There was a “blow-up” or “blow-out” but we have managed to make amends to the situation and I’d like to think our relationship is stronger than before. This was rather difficult for me though considering I wanted to be THERE for my Mom and strong for her emotionally and mentally. However, life lessons wait for no man or woman and things happened the way that they should at the time that they did. I can’t help that.
I know a while back I said I SHOULD and WOULD start re-working on my novel, well – in the time I spent trying to mend my personal life situations, that just didn’t happen. I wanted to dedicate my time to the people I love and care about, seeing that as more a priority than anything. For those who aren’t aware, family is very important to me. It has been a rather stressful few months and as much as I’d like to do “Post-a-day” again, I want to leave myself some room to breath as I get back into finishing my novel.
Yes! that IS the good news as well. I started re-working on my novel the other day. I hit a road block but I have a vague idea on how I’m going to persist. I don’t know if I can or should do what I have in mind, but – we’ll try it and see. If the people helping me Edit don’t mind the interesting transition, than I can call it good. Shutting up the Head and Chief Editor in my head though is a nightmare again though. UGH! I wish there was an “On/Off” switch for them! But I am using tips, tricks and techniques I learned from NaNoWriMo this past fall and those are helping.
So keep your eyes on the tracker to see how I alter it to show you my progress on Operation: Charlie Bravo. Oh and feel free to cheer me on while I do so whether on twitter, my fan-page on Facebook or another way. I won’t mind and would greatly appreciate it! Toodles!
