I have this dull ache/pain in the arch of my right foot. Aggravating! Ugh! Can’t sleep!
Back in June or July, the tiny weed we had in our yard (other yards had weeds waist-high or higher), which actually grew from under the wall from the neighbor’s yard, caused City Codes to give us a violation. Oh, we paid some one to take care of it, and he didn’t get it all. So, we had him come by again, and still, he didn’t get it all—he was paid again.
Now, we get a notice from the community management that since we violated city code, we also violated the lease agreement. Although the work we paid someone to do—incorrectly—satisfied the city codes warning, and that was several MONTHS AGO! So, now, we HAVE SEVEN DAYS, or the lease is terminated. Since no one does yard work this time of year, I’m going to have to literally kill myself to do this work, work which I am physically incapable of doing. We don’t have a mower (it wouldn’t work well anyway, with a small yard), and we don’t have any weed eaters, so that means we have to do this manually.
I can’t even walk most days, and even just resting hurts, but I have to physically do this, which will probably now result in total incapacitation for me, for probably a month or so.
So, if there’s no posts, then well, that’s what’s going on. Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and many other things aren’t friendly at all at any time; and at the moment, this is one of the worst times.
And, don’t get started on the so-called “Affordable Care Act.” I don’t qualify for assistance with it…why? Well, no income means no expenses, so no help. And I don’t have ANY money to pay for it, so I didn’t sign up for it! So please don’t come here and comment on ACA. I’ve tried all I can, and no help. /END
Is the above named a malware or legitimate?
It appears legitimate, but then why wouldn’t previous scans have picked it up?
Ok, so I see some nice Tumblr Profile backgrounds…I’m talking about the “stock” ones that Tumblr makes you choose, and not the one a user can upload to their profile. I want to change mine, but when I try to do so, I can only UPLOAD, which I don’t want to do! So, how can we change “stock” BGs?
I found some old essays I wrote in college, some were saved on at least a “modern” PC so that I can retrieve them; others, sadly, were on older file storage system—either 5.25” floppy, 3.5” floppy, or an Iomega Zip disk—I don’t think any of those format are available. So… most of the old files, I had managed at some point to at least print out a draft…and yes, the hard copies are still dark and legible. The only thing I’m doing is typing them up now, in a new file, which will be stored on my PC, and eventually “in the cloud”. I’m amazed at my writing back then, even for essays.
I don’t know why I’m doing this, as I doubt any one would ever be interested in stupid essays!
Well, I’ve dusted off what started out to be a full-length work back around 2002 or so, but I decided to make it a short-story—For now; it can always change to a more full-length work. I typed it in from a hard-copy (I don’t know why I typed it in again, I do have a file for it on my computer…) I will re-work it with some tweaks, but right now, I’m taking a few days’ break.
I also finished a 1st draft of a (for now) novella-length work. It’s really just an outline since it has ‘Joe did this, and said that’ … rather than actual dialog. And, the fact that I already want to change it.
But for now, I just want to take a break from writing, but I really feel as though I can’t afford to!

I scream, You scream, we ALL scream for ICE CREAM! Is it just me, or does Ice Cream seem even better on a cold day?

Interesting Insight from a Frustrated author. Self-publishing can be good, and back in the day, there wasn’t much to choose from the likes of iUniverse. Now, of course, there is Kindle Direct, Smashwords, CreateSpace, etc, all are able to be used for NO-COST, other than say, copyright, editing, cover design, etc…but other than that, it’s free!
I have been leery of iUniverse for some time, partly because of WriterBeware and Preditors & Editors sites!
