Another Mom Update

Mom saw the neurologist on Monday. Her surgery is scheduled for the end of the month. He says we shouldn't be worried about occasional numbness in the arms, as it is NOT an indication of progressive permanent damage, but rather just a side effect of the condition that will disappear after the surgery.

Mom and I were both hoping that she'd have the the surgery sooner rather than later. Right now, it feels like the proverbial sword over our heads -- we just have to wait it out and hope there isn't an accident that makes her condition worse. Or permanent.

I am struggling with my usual bouts of self-doubt and depression, made worse by the fact that this is the beginning of a new year (with little accomplished last year) and that in a few months I turn a milestone age with a four in it.

Also, the weather lately has been dark and gloomy, which contrary to my goth tendencies does not hearten me. Rather, it gives me headaches and makes it difficult to get out of bed.

Things which I still need to write, listed here to provide accountability for my sorry ass:

  • Timney Trigger product review
  • Kel-Tec 420 lumen flashlight review
  • PNC Hollow Point ammo review
  • Hangin' with Oleg
  • more Unknown Ponies
  • more Pellatarrum
  • Some other stuff I can't recall at the moment
I think maybe it's time for me to start looking for a co-writer. 


  1. What?  You're turning 24!?  Get over yourself kid.  ;)

  2. Oh, and anyone who got Mike Pondsmith's attention with her game idea did NOT "accomplish little".  Now go shoot that Mosin at some things over in the next county from your porch.

  3. We wait on pins and needles for "some other stuff I can't recall at the moment".  Just kidding my dear, your posts are well worth waiting for. Sorry I've been so busy but your Mom has been in my prayers, as are you.
