I look over my journal and I realize how inactive I've been this year. I didn't even post a single fanfic this calendar year. And I missed some of the usual icon offerings... just as I will again with Christmas.
Some of the inactivity was due to an eye injury I had which really limited the time I could spend on the computer. But that doesn't explain all of it. My muse has been MIA for some time. Which is why I was so pleased to be able to complete my NaNo novel (with all due credit for the love and support
Speaking of my girl. I spent a wonderful five weeks with her during November and the first week of December. And I can't wait to go back... despite the cold weather. *lol* The only complaint I have is that it went by too fast; but then no matter how long I stayed, it would always go by too fast. That's just the nature of the beast.
Well, maybe I do have a second complaint. I got home on Saturday the 6th (at night). On Sunday (7th) I started feeling off. By Monday I couldn't keep anything down, not even water. Same thing Tuesday. Wednesday I went to doctor since nothing had changed. I apparently picked up a virus (probably on the plane ride home *grrr*). The doctor prescribe Phenergan to help with the nausea. I've been on liquids all week, and finally had a meal, such as it was, of cup-a-noodles Friday. Saturday I managed a bowl of yakisoba noodles (made with rice and much lighter than regular pasta). Sunday I managed 2 servings but I'm still in pretty rough shape. I have no idea how long it's going to take me to fully recover from this virus, but I'll be curious to see how much weight I've lost because of it. *lol*
Anyway, despite my current bout w/a stomach virus, the injured eye I had to deal with, and my complete lack of fanfic writing this year, 2014 has actually been a good year overall. When it comes to the big picture, I don't really have any regrets and there's a lot I'm happy about. A large portion of which is due to my very wonderful girlfriend, cherokee62. She's loved and supported me through thick and thin; putting up with my idiosyncrasies, and loving me in spite my faults. According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2014 was the years of the Horse. For me, it was the year of the Wolf. *lol*
