Good news - Writing is going great. James has a lead on another job. Dad's laser eye treatment went well. Mom's had hers and it appears to have gone well too.

Bad news - I'm headed back to the doc. Bronchitis is no longer getting better. In fact, seems to have gotten worse. Hoping we haven't once again travelled down the road to pneumonia, but it wouldn't be a surprise. Have I mentioned how incredibly much I HATE THIS!!!!!!!!!!! (Add a few more exclamation points -- I can't shout because of my chest -- but you get the general idea).

Amen I say unto you that this sucketh big time.

I am SOOOO ready to be feeling better.

Um, let's change the subject, shall we?

I, (yes me, the queen of noninvolvement in group activities) actually took the time to write an e-mail to the board of the organization I was talking to you about a couple of blogs ago, giving them my opinion on the position they had taken. I was polite, business like, and have since gotten some very nice replies in which they tell me "Yeah, we're working on it. We'll get back to you." Actually one person sounded just a LITTLE bit testy (probably because the group is like 9000 strong and she's gotten hundreds of e-mails) saying that the whole thing had been distorted and blown out of proportion, but that they were working on it and would get back to me.

I wish them luck. They'll need it. They've pushed a major hot button for a lot of people and will be under a lot of scrutiny from the membership for a while. Thing is, I think they had the absolute best of intentions. But trying to dictate morality... that's a job for your church (maybe), not your writer's group.

Anyway, everybody take care. I'll keep you posted. I'm very happy with the book progress. I'm averaging 12 pages a day right now. This is a very good clip for when I'm working a full-time job. YIPPEEE!

Glad James has a job lead. Glad your Dad and Mom's eye surgeries went well!!!!! Glad you put your "two cents" in regarding censoring. Glad the writing is going well.

So happy to hear about all the good news with your family AND the great block of writing you're getting! That's fantastic!

But I'm so sorry you're still not better. I've got my fingers crossed for you, I hope it doesn't become something much worse!

Hugs and well wishes,
Yolanda :)
