Going to start with an update on the tooth thing. For those that missed the post, insurance denied the root canal, so I had to get the tooth removed along with the last wisdom tooth that no longer had a purpose. Writing this the day before while my mouth is both numb and really, really itchy. Can’t wait for this to be done and I can eat even though I’m sticking the pudding for a day or two. Fingers are crossed that I’m at least 90% by the time we go to the zoo tomorrow.
Actually, I’m going to pause this post until I feel better. Be back in a few hours:
Let’s try this again. Feeling a little better, but the mouth is still numb and achy. Part of it is because the kid won’t stop asking questions. Anyway, there isn’t much else to report about this week. I’ll do a day-by-day, but you won’t see much.
Columbus Day had the kid at home. We went to see ‘Storks’, which wasn’t that bad and kept us entertained. The theater was in the same mall as the eyeglass place, so we put in my new prescription. New glasses in a month. One McDonald’s stop later, we ended up at home where we . . . did stuff. Just a lot of playing.
This is when I was fighting with insurance. I did one bit of book writing. Probably 4-5 pages throughout the day due to my mood.
Yom Kippur, so no writing done today. This is the Jewish day of fasting, which means playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the day. Still had to fight insurance at one point and my son joined me with his snack. Nothing helps fasting than repeatedly being asked if you’re hungry by a kid chowing down on pizza-flavored goldfish. I devoured two meatball subs, a package of apple slices, two pop-tarts, and a piece of pumpkin fudge. Was still hungry after that too.
Dentist to check the teeth.
Dentist to remove the teeth.
You can see that there was very little writing done. I did set up all the posts for November and I’m working on December. Figure I can use my brief bouts of energy, focus, and good mood for that. My goal is to finish writing Path of the Traitors next week since I only have 9 sections to go. Be nice if I get it done by Wednesday, but I won’t hold my breath on that one. Feels like the mouth will take a bit to heal from since it’s two removals instead of one and I’m hitting up the zoo tomorrow. There’s a special post going up tomorrow too that might require some work. So, what’s left on the agenda?
- Finish Path of the Traitors.
- Blurbs for The Spirit Well.
- Outline for The Forgotten Baron.
- Finish December blog posts.
- Special character interview project if I get enough volunteers.
- Get back to biking if I feel up to it.
- Yearly: Write The Forgotten Baron.
- Yearly: Edited Chasing Bedlam. Do I have beta readers for this one?
Hope everyone is having a fun October and gearing up for Halloween. How was everyone else’s week?
