Hauling Sunday CXXIII

Hi everyone :)

How are you doing? Hope everything's good with everyone :) I'm doing better, on the mend. I had an ultrasound last Tuesday and a follow-up appointment on Wednesday at which time, they removed the drain! Yay!! So I've been taking it easy... and tomorrow, I'll be back to work. Moment of truth I guess LOL. Luckily, my job is flexible, so I'm still planning to take things easy :) The real test I think is going to drive to work... One of the bridges - of course, it has to be the one that I take - is having some issues and two lanes are closed ^_^; Really not a good news, sigh. So we'll see how traffic is going to be, but not looking forward to that :(

In the meantime, I've been reading some new releases and re-reading some old favorites :) I've also taken up crochet :P My sister was looking at video tutorials to make an infinity scarf and I got sucked in. I'm doing a test run and hopefully, it'll turn out good :) Then, I'll buy nicer and bulkier yarn... At least, that's the plan.

Now, look at my new precious!! Luckily, November was a good release month because that got me through :)

What do you think? And what good books did you read lately?!

Still here... recovering

Hi guys.

How are you doing? Hope things are going better for you than me :) Sigh, I'm just so ready for 2013 to be over ^_^; Anyway, I thought I'd write a post to let you guys know I'm still here. Sooo what happened is that last week, I started having abdominal pain again. Not going into a lot of details, I did end up getting my appendectomy on Wednesday; however, there were some complications. Got an abscess - not sure if it's from the wait since my appendix was already ruptured or the surgery - and also, wasn't able to pass gas or have a bowel movement... So I ended up staying in the hospital a few extra days. I finally got discharged on Tuesday, but still have the draining bag attached to the abscess. Then again, at that point, all I cared was going home.

Now that I'm home, I'm trying to take it easy. I'm not in too much pain, so that's good :) Still a bit paranoid and worried... then, who wouldn't be with a draining bag ^_^; Obviously, curling is out for now LOL. A pity. At least, I'm reading now which is good :) And hopefully, my blogging muse will come back to me so my blogging finally picks up :)

What about you? How have you been doing?

Hauling Sunday CXXII

Hey everyone :)

So how was your week? And your week-end?

My week was okay, nothing really special happened. I played curling on Thursday and Friday... but on my way to the curling club on Friday evening, there were two spots - one on my back and one near my armpit - that kind of hurt. And after my game, I felt pretty crappy. Hopefully, I didn't push too hard ^_^; I'm kind of concerned I might get a new shingles rash, although it wouldn't make sense given I'm done with the antiviral treatment. Also hoping it's not a complication of shingles. However, it hasn't hurt yesterday and today, so I'll take that as a good sign.

There were a lot of books out on last Tuesday :) Here is what I got:

These were all pre-orders. There's quite a few more books that I want and they should be on their way, coming this week :) Can't wait!

What about you? What did you get? By the way, Ames, Monroe and I have our new releases post up over at Breezing Through! Take a look at it here :)
