Hello everyone out there in bloggie land.

It looks like surgery is in the Flowerchild's near future... again. I found out on Sat. that I have another ovarian cyst... oy... A 5cm complex septiated cyst. Since there is no way on this green earth that I am going to miss my long awaited Vegas trip, I'm going to wait until I get back and then go back to the doctor, most likely for another ultra-sound and we'll see what's going on with it... if it's grown, shunk, whatever.... Then, we'll make the decision.... But, my gut feeling is that I'll be checking in to the hospital at either the end of August or the beginning of September. ::sigh:: Oh, well, I've been down this road before and I'm making a list (I do love my lists) of all the things I need to remember for this surgery.... and I'm looking on the bright side. Bright side? Yes, there's a bright side. I get to play with the morphine clicky thingy! :-)

Bubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble...

Sometimes I REALLY hate writing!


Okay, breath.... I'll explain. There is something gut-wrenching about the entire process. It's painful. You carve out this little world with little people whom you grow so attached to. You love them. Completly. They really do become people to you. You know them inside and out. They are like old friends... and sometimes you paint yourself into the make-believe world & that only adds to the.... craziness of it.

I am writing a little world of my own at the moment &, let me tell you, I love these people. They are wonderfully flawed, nutty people. And I want so badly to tell everyone their story. I want others to know them like I know them.

And I have spent the past 6 hours or so (give or take) staring at the blank, white screen of death that is WORD. Driving me crazy. That's what it is doing. I find that I have fallen into the trap of over thinking EVERYTHING that I am writing. And over thinking leads to second guessing & that is death for my poor Muse.

Speaking of my Muse, she seems to have run away. I keep trying to bribe her back with promises of Dr. Pepper and Skittles... but, alas, to no avail.


Okay, back to work. Just wanted to blow off some steam.
Thanks for listening.

Southern Living

Well, the Southern Living is up and running. For those who are just tuning in, I am an independent consultant for Southern Living at Home. I really, really love this company. I grew up in the "south" and, as every good southern lady does, I always have a Southern Living magazine on my coffee table. :-) I love, love, love the products.

Your Score: Katharine Hepburn

You scored 21% grit, 33% wit, 38% flair, and 14% class!

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.
