Bizarre few days.

Woke up in the middle of the night Monday, with my ring finger on my left hand swollen and throbbing. I’d bumped it a couple of times over the weekend, cleaning and moving things, but didn’t think much about it.

But it was bad enough to wake me up.

Then, I was dumb enough to look it up on the Internet and worry I needed to go to the ER.

THEN, I had to worry about insurance, because here in MA we have Romney-care, which means insurance in name only most of the time.

I iced it, took ibuprofen, used tea tree oil, kept it elevated, and managed to get back to sleep for a couple of hours around four.

It was better when I woke up. I’ll nurse it for a day or two and see. It doesn’t help that I have to use that poor finger to type. If it doesn’t get better, I’ll go to Urgent Care and see what they can do. At least I can afford that, if they decide to decline my insurance card.

Tuesday was a challenge with my client. Then, I was supposed to drive to Eastham to pick up an antique sewing cabinet (a craigslist find) — but with incoming storms, I wasn’t sure and thought I should push it to today. So I’ll head out there this afternoon.

Read my friend’s radio play and gave feedback. The play is good, but the formatting needs some work. Radio is driven by aural cues, and they have to drive the plot and characters, not just be there to be there. Visual cues have to be translated into aural cues.

Worked on “Pier-less Crime” and on my article.

I’m off my game right now, mostly because I don’t feel well, and I have to get my act together. I feel stuck. Everything feels like it’s moving, and part of me feels like things are moving, and the changes I’m taking action to make WILL happen, but they’re not happening yet, and I’m getting impatient. I’m looking forward to tomorrow.

Working with the singing bowl. I ordered some books on working with them from the Commonwealth Catalog via the library.

Big push this weekend to finish this draft of GRAVE REACH and get it to my editor.

Think good thoughts for me.
