Not a Goal Post

I had a big post typed up for today. A Round of Words in 80 Days starts again tomorrow, and this has the potential to be a big, scary, exciting round for me. I have the goals READY.

But I’m going to hold off on posting that. This round’s going to get a late start for me. ROW80 is cool with that. ROW80 is cool with everything.

I had a surgical-type procedure booked for early May, but the hospital called on Friday to ask if I could go in tomorrow*, so that’s a thing that’s happening.

No, I don’t really want to discuss it in public. Yes, everything is fine. No, I’m not dying, unless you’re in the “We’re ALL dying” camp, in which case I am, but this little operation isn’t going to do anything to slow that process. It’s just something that’s going to make me a happier camper, God willing.

No, it’s not electroshock therapy. Stop asking.

My point is, I’m going to be recovering at home as of tomorrow afternoon, for I-don’t-know-how-long of hours or days. I might be reading during that time, if I’m smart. I have a lot of catching up to do.

The A-Z Challenge is still a go, I have a few days scheduled. Please bear with me if I’m slow in getting to your posts. I will be back.

Oh, and prayers and/or happy thoughts are most appreciated. 🙂



*Yes, this happens, even with the government paying for it. WEIRD, right?
