Daily Update: Rough Couple of Days

I suffer from what’s known as Low-Pressure Migraines. That means when a low pressure system moves in (usually before it rains) I get these terrible headaches as my sinuses fill up and do their best attempt to crush my brain. Usually I can function normally. Sometimes they hit hard and knock me down. That’s the way I’ve been the past couple of days. I haven’t written because my head hurts. I’ve done my day job, but feels like I’ve been in a fog.

Last night I was in bed by 7:30. I took my heavy meds. I read for a little bit and passed out with a book on my chest. I think I lost my place to, but I’ll figure out where I was. My eyes have hurt, my head has hurt and it’s affected my productivity. On top of that, we did a fun beach day that ended in rain and I had to get up at 5AM Sunday Morning to do some work (testing that a database patch was successfully installed).

Now it’s Tuesday and I’m feeling run through the wringer. When I take my stronger meds it wears me out, wipes me out, and runs me down. I don’t like the medicine-head feeling they give me. I need to yawn a few times, and get this out of my system.

I had wanted to finish Of Gnomes and Dwarves Book 1 before the end of October so I might start V&A II for NaNoWriMo. That may still happen. I’ve knocked out a couple words here and a couple words there. I’m coming up to the big battle scene and those almost write themselves. I’m sure a lot will change from what I’d written before. We’ll see how it goes. I’m hopeful, now that I have my brain back, that I can get back on track and get that done.

I’ve done a little plotting on V&A II. I’ll need to get more done before November hits. I’m liking where the story is going. I hope it’ll be as fun of a ride as the first. Just like with OGAD I can’t wait to revisit these characters. They’re a lot of fun.

My Favorite Daughter played a great volleyball game last night. Unfortunately they lost. :(. They still have two more games to play before the season is out and have a winning record thus far with only 3 losses. So proud at how well the team has done this season. In about a month and a half, club season will start. Only a short break before that begins in December.

There is much to do. So many words, so little time.

Until Tomorrow!
