It’s been waay too long since I’ve been here. I’m sorry for dropping off the face of the earth. :ashamed:

 

A lot has happened since the last time checked in last. One major thing being my retired guide dog Lanny passed away in November. The day before Thanksgiving (the 26th) to be exact. He had been very sick for about a month and the vet couldn’t figure out what was wrong, even after loads of tests...until one of the tumors in deep in the back of Lanny’s mouth in the gum line of his teeth started to bleed. By that time Lanny had become skin and bone and he wasn’t eating, I had to force feed a blended mix down him and even then he threw up most of what I could force down him. And when they found the tumor it was more than apparent what needed to happen. He had no quality of life and the vet said that type of cancerous tumor doesn’t respond to chemo or anything like that. Hard as it was to let him go, it had been harder that whole month to see him waste away and be in obvious pain.

 

It’s been what...6 months now and I’m finally feeling that I’ll be ready to get a new guide once the whole business of my top surgery and healing up from it is over.

 

Speaking of which! Hopefully in the next couple of months I’ll be getting my top surgery and my insurance will be paying for it! :dummy:

But I’ve started an Indiegogo Life campaign to raise some money for travel expenses. So if anyone reading this could please donate or at least share the link to my campaign. I’d be very appreciative.

Summer Goals

 

For this round of goals I will set the goal date for September 1, 2015.

 

Color key

:bulletblack: unfinished

:bulletblue: constant goal, no real end.

:bulletgreen: Finished goal

 

Goals

 

:bulletblue:1. Continue better eating habits and exercise, and improve on them.

 

:bulletblack:2. Finish up the odd jobs I’ve volunteered for. I’ve offered my services to some of you as a beta reader. If I’m currently working on one of your pieces, I planned to finish those up in the next few weeks as well. NOTE: Due to some of my goals I may not be as available to beta read as I’ve been. I’ll still lurk around and help ya’all out if I have the time. :) Don’t hesitate to ask for my help still, the worst I can say is ‘I’m sorry but I don’t have the time right now’. I do still want to help as much as I can though. :D

 

:bulletblack:3. I want to finish the rewrite of several of the chapters I’ve already written of the rough draft of my novel ‘For You I Will’. This entails more than just revision that’s why I’m bothering doing it first instead of doing it later. It is going to heavily influence how the rest of the chapters play out. And because of it I might be adding chapters in between the ones I’ve already written, so this is a very important step and my hopes are that I’ll get more than this done. I’m at a stand still at the moment and I hope to change that with this goal. :XD:
