You remember when I talked about stress? First of all, after, catching up and finishing my writing stuff I wanted to do, I've felt a lot better about all of that(all the encouraging comments and all the people who are going or have been through the same thing really really helps so thanks for that!). So, yeah, even though I haven't posted much and am still behind on comments I'm feeling better about all of that.
I mentioned in that post that after the 18th which was my self-appointed deadline for what I was working on I should be relaxing and get back to posting more frequently.... That was kind of a lie. I am more relaxed, but I have even less time for posting and at the moment I really don't know when that's going to change. There are two reasons for this which I will explain real quick.
Reason #1. Family things. So, my brother had surgery Wednesday, I might have mentioned this once of twice a couple months ago and I mentioned it a few times back in like July, so, anyway. This wasn't a surprise, we've known for almost a year now that he was going to be having this surgery, it was oral surgery and, without going into too many details, it entailed his surgeon breaking his jaw which then had to have metal plates inserted to keep it together and then wired shut so that nothing happens to it. Yeah. Lots of "fun" stuff for him. Originally they were hoping they wouldn't have to wire it shut but they did, and we were hoping he'd only be in the hospital for a night or two but his doctor wants to make sure that his pain is under control and he knows his limits with his mouth wired shut and everything, so he's still at the hospital. We're a close family and he's on a lot of pain so one or more of us is constantly at the hospital with him.
Now, this is not a huge deal, I mean there's no serious health risks or anything. But we still worry because he's in pain and uncomfortable and everything. When he gets home we'll still have to help him a lot and he won't be able to eat for a minimum of 4 weeks, but still, there are worse things. And since it's my middle brother(older than me, younger than our other brother) and he has the worst luck ever it's not his first surgery, most painful? Yes. But not first.
Reason #2: We're moving next month. So, we've been thinking about moving for a while because the house we're renting is basically falling apart around us, we weren't really planning on moving so soon but it's kind of out of our control. So, we've moving in April which means packing, and cleaning, and finding a place to move, not to mention the actual moving. All while my brother is recovering.
So, yeah. Besides that everything's good! I've been reading quite a bit so I will have reviews whenever I get around to it. I'm going to try and do some other posts still when I can, I had some Camp NaNoWriMo related posts planned but at the moment I'm not even sure if I'm going to be doing NaNo next month so we shall see. I just wanted to do a quick update(that turned out longer than intended) to let you know why I might not be posting and visiting and commenting as much. I'm hoping I'll have plenty of time to do all that once my bro gets home from the hospital, but it's hard to say.
In the meantime, I've been reading a lot of fluffy contemporary(YA of course) because it's easier to read something that I don't have to have full concentration on while at the hospital with him so any recommendations are much appreciated!
How has your week been!? Hopefully a step up from mine!
