My girls had a swim meet in Mason, Ohio, this weekend, so it was something of a working vacation for me. Vacation in that it was the first time since January since I’d slept anywhere but in my own house. Working in that I tried to get some more story written down. And I do mean written: typing is a bit problematic when sitting on bleachers at a high-school pool. Perhaps I’ll make the NaNoWriMo cut off; perhaps not.
Up this AM at 0400 to get my wife to the airport. She’s off to Houston for tests and consults this week for her lymphoma. It will be a busy time for me, what with day job, girls’ club activities, and whatnot, until her return. Writing takes another hit….
*Just ‘at’ mind you, not under. I still might be able to salvage this.
Last week, my wife had a small lump removed from the upper left side of her nose. It was something I would have ignored, but fifteen years ago, she had a fight with lymphoma. Ha, ha: jokes on us. The biopsy of the small tissue mass was positive for B-cell lymphoma.
So, morale about the house is rather shattered right now. She’ll be off to MD Anderson in Houston, likely in a week or so, for more tests and consults. That leaves me spending all my time on Daughters #1 and #2, and not on writing “Crosses and Doublecrosses.”
I’ll get it done; I just don’t think it’s going to be by November 30th.
If it’s November, it must be time for a new novel!
