 Sign Up for A-Z

Hello, Everybody!

I just wanted to let you know that you have from now until April 1 to sign up to participate in the A-Z Challenge.  Now, what is that one?  Well, if you sign up, that means that you are committing to post every day except for Sundays during the month of April, and that your posts are in alphabetical order.  For instance, on April 1, you post something that begins with the letter "a".   Also, you blog hop and visit new folks and existing friends along the way.  It really is fun, and last year I used it as a tool to show off some of my past posts that others may not have seen yet.  To learn more, please visit Arlee at Tossing It Out.

On to other news:  there isn't much.  I still am not ship-shape after my surgery.  I thought that I was doing fine, but when the pain pills wear off, I still hurt.  When the pain pills are working, I don't feel like doing ANYTHING except being a couch potato who watches reruns and reads her book.  From my phone I can post your comments, and thank you so much for leaving them!  But as far as posting all the stories that I want to do, it just isn't happening right now.

I have big plans though, for when I am back to normal.  I have a bunch of furniture rearranging to do (making a new sewing station in our bedroom, and adding a new desk to our office are a couple of the plans).   Then it is on to serious stuff around here regarding writing and hopefully some sales.

Our new roof was put on yesterday, and they should be starting on the inside of the house in a few days.  Our spare bedroom is filled to the ceiling with furniture, and some pretty cool Christmas presents that are still in the boxes.  Looking forward to making our home look less like a college dorm someday soon. We are getting there.  Good thing that I haven't felt well, or that would really be driving me nuts by now! 

Well, I just wanted to say hi.  I'll post as I can.  I am sorry that I am behind on my visiting and commenting; I am slowly catching up.

Thanks for checking in!

I'm glad to hear you're getting better, even if you still need those pain pills. I'd like to do that challenge, but my parents will be back by then and I won't have as much time. Shoot, I have time now and I'm still unable to post much. Keep getting better.

So sorry you are still in pain. Just take those pills as you need them and enjoy the relaxation. Most things can wait.
Feel better soon.

Hope you're 100 percent soon! Thinking of you...

Sorry you aren't recuperating as fast as you'd like. Lots of rest, and it sounds like you're getting that.

I did the A-Z challenge last year, but I don't have the time to commit this time around. Maybe next year.
