WHERE I'VE BEEN

I haven't been posting as much lately. Several reasons.

One, I was spending some time with the prequels to the prequels to Frank Herbert's Dune series. The books aren't bad, but they aren't magic with a capital M either. Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson have managed to tie into all the strands of the earlier works. In excruciating detail. I found out far more than I ever wanted to know about some characters and not nearly enough about others. The body count is beyond astronomical and most of them died very badly. Sometimes less is more and descriptions of executions, etc. fall into that category for me. My imagination is usually far scarier than anything anybody and write.

Two, getting over dental extractions and trying to work full time apparently takes more out of you than I expected. That and several trips to the doctor to have adjustments made. Things are getting better, but I've been feeling pretty drained.

My joints have been giving me semi-fits at about two week intervals. It's been hard enough work at a desk all day without trying to spend enough time on the computer at home long enough to get anything done more complicated than commenting on my favorite journals and sending some e-mails. I'm on the upswimg again, Yaaay.

So, here I am this morning feeling pretty darn good and trying to make up for lost time.

I am so sorry that you've had such a rough time of it lately, and I do hope that the upswing to normal doesn't take much time.  Dental extractions and joint pain, that's just not fair.

The crappy weather hasn't been helping any, I'm sure...  Lisa  :-]
