Off for the weekend!

Off to Salem MA this weekend, along with 250 other family members and the timing couldn’t be better. Last night the DH, my youngest and I were at Best Buy looking at netbooks (my b-day is this weekend and DH needed ideas.) :0) Anyway, so all of a sudden my left wrist started hurting like crazy. I did have pain in it earlier in the day, but nothing that made me stop or wince.
I felt around where the pain was and noticed a small lump…so because we’re going away the DH thought it was a good idea to have it checked out. Off to the walk-in clinic. 30 mins later they decided it was bruised. Now mind you she didn’t want to do an x-ray, probably because they were in a hurry to go home. She bandaged it and said if I have any issues over the next three days come back for an x-ray. Yeah, I’m not feeling the love from that clinic. I’ll go see another doctor. I’d go see mine, but he decided to move out of state, so I don’t have one at the moment.
She told me limited use for at least three days. Shhh, don’t tell her I’m typing this. lol The wrist still hurts like a SOB.
Nano isn’t going as good as I’d hoped but I plan to resume intense writing next week. I’d like to sneak some in over the weekend, but 5 of us are sharing a two bedroom suite. I don’t think they’ll appreciate me getting up at 4am to make coffee and type away. Hopefully the time away will replenish my creative well as it seems to have run dry at the moment.
If you’re not a newsletter subscriber I’m running two contests this month. One ends Nov 7th at midnight est, the other runs all month long. Great prizes. You can sign up on the left to find out how to win.
Happy Friday and have a Fun-filled weekend!


  1. Have a great time at the reunion. I can't think of a better place to fill the creative well. There is a story around every corner.

    I hope that the wrist starts to feel better soon. If it was me, my husband would tell me that the pain was a result of my expensive birthday ideas!

    Have fun in "witchville"!!!

  2. Thanks Marie! I'm sure it will be a Christmas gift not a b-day.

  3. Have a happy birthday. Hope everything with the wrist and your weekend goes okay.

  4. Have big fun on your trip, hon, but it doesn't sound like you'll be writing much. Too much chaos for that. I've found that traveling to and from a place is good for inspiration though so maybe it'll STRIKE! Sorry about the wrist!

  5. Have a great trip and yeah, get the wrist taken care of elsewhere. Sounds like an over-use injury.

  6. Oh, that wrist does not sound good for a writer. You could always get a tape recorder and make one of the offspring type it up. Ok, so that doesn't happen in real life, but is sounded good, lol. So is a birthday at a family reunion a good thing or a really bad thing?? I wouldn't even want to think about it....
    Good luck & Happy B-day
