Hello again, my friends.
I was terribly ill for about a week, resulting in a hospital overnight that was, in the end, exactly what I needed all along. The combination of meds and a saline drip did wonders for my disposition. The docs think I caught a bug that aggravated my gastroparesis that caused dehydration and exhaustion. I thought I had Covid, and freaked out, but my test was blessedly negative. I went home Thursday morning feeling much improved, better than I have felt in weeks, actually.
Then came E. She spent her week with us and we had a lovely time together as always, and she continues to amaze me and make me proud. She is turning into this beautiful and fun young woman and I am just in awe of her. We went out to dinner and to the beach and hiking and to the farmer’s market and the family reunion and last night we had dinner with my parents and played Nightmare, this game from the 90’s that Kevin and I loved as kids. Kev won the game, the first time in our history that ANYONE has won the game before the clock ran out. It was great fun. She headed home this morning and now I am sitting here, playing catch-up.
Another thing that happened is an angel came to visit me. They gave me something special…a sponsorship of sorts. While I was stressing about where to get the funds to run my website another year, not to mention buy my domain for my blog, fate moved as it does and the angel came and gave me a gift. Brigidhannon.com soldiers on for another year, selling books and connecting me to the world. And now, hamneggs716.com, my baby, my darling, my little pumpkin-faced peanut, finally! 20 years I have had a blog, and I never bought her a domain. Now, we exist.
So, that’s what has been going on.
Now, I have to write. I have to finish this blog and start on one of the other three I have up and coming. I have to work on content for my Patreon account, and plan out a video poem that I am going to use to raise some funds for the AFSP. Then, I have to pray St. John Bosco, the patron saint of publishers and editors, that my editor will email me soon. Also, I guess I should do the laundry?
