A Fellow MRKH Sister

I know it’s been ages since I’ve written. I haven’t been inspired to write, but another blog has gotten my butt into gear. http://www.noovenforthebun.blogspot.com/ is written by a woman who also has MRKH which I referred to in http://nikianntaylor.com/2008/08/19/revealing-my-dirty-secrets/ Her blog is very funny and tender as she prepares for marriage and gestational surrogacy.  Even though I decided not to have kids, so many of her feelings echo mine. I applaud her for her honesty as she demonstrates MRKH is not a dirty secret.

As for me, I still have my editing  job. I’m coping with the summer heat. My dream is to live somewhere where the temp does not get above 80. Since my last post, I went to Myrtle Beach before it got so hot and crowded. I also had surgery for an ovarian cyst so it’s me and my one ovary now. Thankfully, my health is fine.

You know I love to talk about the books. I got all the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris and am going through them. I need some cool vampires for this heat. The HBO show True Blood is based on the books. I’ve never seen the show, but usually the books are better than the movies/shows. Have a good summer!

Still Waiting

It’s been a while since I’ve written. The weather is cooler, thank goodness. I love cooler weather and have been walking every day. I attended the online Muse Writer Conference, and it was a pleasant week of chats and forums. Even online, I was shy, but I managed to ask one question, and it was enlightening as a first-timer. More details are at http://www.themuseonlinewritersconference.com/index.htm The trip to the mountains was great too. I highly recommend Pigeon Forge, TN as a fall destination.

I reapplied for the temporary job I held for a year. If I’m lucky, I will get rehired for another year. I visit a board that discusses this job, and it is hard to tell who is eligible for that second year. Some people get rehired, and others don’t. Time will tell which category I will fall into. My mindset has been on this job so long, but I am looking at other online work and am positive something will turn up soon.

To pass the time, I’ve been reading. With Halloween so close, it is appropriate vampires are the theme. I read the first book in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series. I enjoyed it and want to read more. I also have one of Stephanie Meyer’s books. They have been so popular I look forward to see if I can get swept up in the mania. Excuse me while I go read!
