Goal Post: Not Again with the Shoulder

I genuinely don’t know what I did.  Yesterday, my right shoulder started hurting again like it did in August.  I’m trying to nip this in the bud fast because having it go on for 3 months was miserable the first time.  Heating pad when I can, which is good because I have a semi-restful weekend planned.

I have to say ‘semi’ because I was up late seeing ‘The Batman’ last night and I’m probably still asleep right now.  Just did this before I left for the movie.  Got a wedding tonight, so another late one.  Praying I can get laundry done before I leave, which might not be impossible since I only have to get a haircut later.  This is the busy day of the weekend while tomorrow is just resting.  Obviously, I have no writing planned because I would only be disappointed . . . like every weekend.

Did anything else happen?  I finished typing in the edits for Slumberlord Chronicles: Darwin & the Fate Bracelet.  Then I finished the May posts and started in on the June ones to clear time after spring break.  Planning to finish all of the June posts by next weekend, which is going to be busy.  I might try to start going over the next outline for Darwin’s adventures.  It depends a lot on energy, my shoulder, and everything else going on.  Until spring break hits, I can’t make any predictions.  All I know is that it’s going to be rough.

The difficulty of the next 2 weeks is that the third quarter ends next Friday.  That means a lot of tests are coming this week and make-up tests are the following.  I have to tackle this as a TA and a parent, which can make my head spin.  It also means I don’t get to relax until 8:30/9 PM when everything has settled.  That’s taking a toll on me lately.  Might be why the shoulder is giving me trouble too.  My stomach was a problem earlier in the week and then it got replaced by this, so I can’t catch a break.

Thinking of stopping the ‘National Holiday’ stuff after June.  Go back to teasers since those are more interesting and the other stuff isn’t doing anything.  No sales.  So, I might as well show off some things.  Maybe do some Darwin stuff since I want to give people a better idea of him.  We’ll see come July.

That’s pretty much it.  No time to really watch TV or touch the jigsaw puzzles.  Just push myself to the point where I pass out.  I mean something is on TV, but I don’t really pay attention to it.  Just start dozing.  Guess this really is a short one, so I’m hoping next Saturday has more.  Sorry about that.

Goals of the week:

  1. Recover energy
  2. Take care of shoulder
  3. Help son with school
  4. Work
  5. Sleep
  6. Survive

  1. Have fun at the wedding. I’m sure there will be some interesting things happening there.


  2. My weekend hasn’t been overly productive either. I’m just going with the flow for a while now.


    • Yeah. The next couple weekends aren’t going to see me doing much. Power had to be turned off in the house for most of the day today, so what little I planned on doing was squashed. This is why I figure I can get something done after spring break. Might even start writing the next Darwin book if I think a weekend will play nice. Won’t hold my breath.

    I’ve done in my shoulder a couple of times, both by typing too much (and so I am partly writing by dictation–even with having to fix paragraphs as I go, it’s still faster for me. I also have a fix for fantasy names–I have a cheat sheet where I use Mary for one character, and globally replace it with Princess Zirconia when I’m done). I have also racked up my shoulder with video games (Tetris, looking at you). I have had to put the arm with the bad shoulder in a sling for a couple of days, and that actually has helped me.

    Sorry the health issues keep kicking off. Hope you can get some rest in while surviving this week.
