No good news from the doctors. :( Sadly, it's just a matter of "when" not "if" but I always knew that. Her cancer is terminal, inoperable, and comes with a whole host of complications.

Ma could live the next two years or be gone by the end of summer. There's just no way to tell. In the meantime, me and my husband are taking on the tasks she uses to do, like driving the kid around and laundry and such.

It just blows my mind that this is the second time I will watch a parent succumb to lung cancer. And neither my Mother nor my Grandmother smoked a day in their lives.

I am FINALLY well enough to be upright and working again without the aid of Dayquil. I didn't like the way Dayquil made me feel so I just stayed home one more day (yesterday) and slept till I felt better. The antibiotics make me a little dizzy but since I don't drive, I can deal with that.

This also means I have a weeks worth of writing to catch up on. I did try to write while I was sick only to go cross-eyed and feel like I was going to vomit. And that's only if my hand would stop shaking long enough to put pen to paper in the first place. 9_9 But there's nothing stopping me now and I owe you all an update!

Library story of the day: There was a wayward zombie DVD up at the circulation desk that obviously didn't belong to us and nobody could tell who it was reserved for. So naturally, they assume it belonged to me. It didn't. But whatever reputation I seem to have at my job, I like it. XD

That's all I have for today, kids. Stay well!

Lenni's had a rough week. To put it mildly.

It started if with a few silly little things and snowballed to hearing my cousin passed away. He was sick for awhile and in a LOT of pain so now he is at peace with my other family members who've passed on. He was a total free spirit; he painted, he did numerology, he even gave me Astrostones, so needless to say we had a lot in common. I'm gonna miss him...

Needless to say, I got a fat lotta NUTHIN done this week. But that will change.

Next week doesn't look like it will be any easier on my fraying nerves. My Ma is going in for surgery on Monday (to have her chemo port changed or flushed er somethin) and I have to drive her home. Did I mention I only have a permit and think of cars as death machines humans no not the full risk of? So this shall be interesting. @_@ I'm not a VERY nervous driver but inexperienced? Totally. I'm gonna have to do a practice run to make sure I don't completely freak out. :p Don't worry, my kid won't be in the car and my life insurance is paid up. ;)

This week has reminded me that I need to take time for myself to just breathe. It's an important thing, really, to just take a minute, breathe deep, and chill. That way all the work gets done, bills get paid, and nobody gets hurt. :p

Lenni will be at New York Comic Con! :D Not that I'll have a table or anything (maybe one day). But I'll be attending on Friday as a representative of my library. ^_^ Last year, I met Jeff Somers so who knows who I'll  meet this year! :D

The day I get a table will be the day I get throngs of fans imploring to meet me. ;)

Hint hint.

I'll only be able to go on Friday since Ma has chemo on Saturday and I have OT on Sunday. But one day is better than no days. :)

I read a sizable amount of blogs, whatever I can fit in on a given day. And there are some points where I'm reading and I literally feel like I'm spying on the person. Yes, they've put it out there to be read on a public forum but still, I feel like I'm prying.

I know I've spoken about my mother's cancer, my insane child, my religion or politics may have crept in here or there but not in a huge way. All in all, I try to keep it all strictly business but that seems unfair. Everybody else has opened a window into their lives while I still keep all my shades drawn. Not that I'll be providing details on gyno appointments or anything but I could get a bit more open here. :)

So what would you all like to know? ;)

My stupid ass is back in debt again. 9_9

See, I'm not one of those "Good Debt, Bad Debt" sort of people. I'm just like my Ma: I hate owing anyone money, EVER. I pay my credit card balances in full, my bills when I get them in the mail (as long as I have the cash to do it) and I refrain from borrowing money flat out from friends or family. Just leads to trouble I do a great deal of preparation to avoid.

Today, we signed the papers for the mortgage to put the second floor on our house. A thirty year mortgage. I've never owed so much money for so long in my entire life. @_@ 

So, in my head I'm thinking fuck tendonitis, I need to write and crochet my little heart out to have books and needlework to sell to pay for all this and still have this second kid my uterus is screaming for. 9_9 I'll be paying a mortgage and sending kids to college at the same time! WEE!!

For the luvva gods, somebody buy the books!! XD
