Life's like a Rollercoaster

Things have gotten a bit crazy, mostly it's life, my health and my current living situation. It's nothing anyone can do anything about, But I figure I should at least let you all know I'm still around and not fallen off the planet. Haven't hitched a ride off either, sadly. Things are really getting scary and dangerous in places.

But even though things have been a bit down hill, the site will still get some updates as I can do them. I lost access to a bunch of stuff when my hard drive died, so there was a little issue with that. Had some utility bill shortages, but at least things stayed on. Life likes to toss out a few curve balls now and then to make sure we're paying attention.

It may be some time before I can put in more time updating though. At least until some issues are taken care of and I'm feeling better. I may need to take a bit of a break until I can get back. But I will be back, that you can be sure of - I will continue with my site.

So stay safe out there, take care of each other and hold onto your dreams.

Carpe Diem!

I'm back to work

I'm back, working on the site and still dealing with a bit of hacking, though it's not as bad. Take that big bad Bronchitis bug! I've been able to read a few more ebooks, they are outstanding and I really enjoyed them. So after I put the reviews into the authors pages, add links and info they'll be ready to go. So loving this project, I'm finding so many creative people who have wonderful stories to share. I can't wait to share these authors with those who stop by the website.

There's more ebooks to add to some pages with series and I'm trying to keep up with the additional works some authors have. I may add links to their other works that are in other genres which I don't read, just as a way to let others know about them.

I've been working on a few craft projects, need to get off the computer sometimes and do other things. Plus there are household chores to do also, they won't do themselves unfortunately. The monthly bill paying, the juggling to make sure things are covered and trying to figure out ways to make my disability stretch a bit farther.

Don't worry, I've still more ebooks to listen to while I'm crafting, so I may have some more stories to add to the site. There will always be more being updated since I simply love to read. I do need to set some time aside to get back to my writing too. So I may look into doing something about that.

Till next time, take care, stay safe and keep your dreams alive!

Carpe Diem!

Murphy's Law and Super bugs

Just when you think it's safe to get back to working, a big bad bug says, "Not going to happen."

Wonderful, right? Get the tech into shop, get the upgrades and updates too. Make sure things are ready to roll and all of a sudden... I'm hacking like a 40 year smoker!

Quick drop in to the doctor informs me I've got Bronchitis. Now isn't that just peachy. My head is stuffy and foggy, my throat hurts, my chest aches (thanks to all the coughing) while I've got work to do. So now it's waiting for me to get better. Never fails, Murphy's law strikes again. Not sure which one it is, but 'Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.' come to mind.

Of course it happens when it's unexpected and at the worst possible time. I was amused enough to tell a friend and they looked up the site. Thanks, now I can see what screw ups are waiting for me later on, lovely.

If you would like to take a look at a list of Murphy's Laws and some extra ones as well, like Sturgeon's Law check out the link.

Murphy's Laws

But I will regroup and move forward again. It just might take a while to do so, as I was told Bronchitis tends to linger even after you're feeling better. Along with the cough which can stick around up to several weeks. Great, just what I wanted to hear.

I've posted this to keep anyone who follows this blog informed and updated. But with that, I'm going to be taking my medicine, finish up my herbal tea and flopping into bed for the next 10-12 hours if possible.

With luck I will feel better when I wake up, but I doubt it. Tomorrow I'm going to use my secret weapon on this chest bug. I'll be brewing up my homemade chicken soup and downing a few bowls. Repeating the process of herbal tea, meds and sleep till I'm able to focus on work again. Wish me well, I'll need it.

So take care, stay healthy and safe, it's crazy out there. Keep your dreams alive and focus on your goals if you have some. You got this, keep moving forward!
I'll return again after I've recovered.

Carpe Diem!

Techno Hiccup!

Well, unfortunately, the fickle gods of technology have decided to strike and things have slowed down due to the main computer acting up. I'm going to have to spend a day doing diagnosis and figure out what's wrong.

My laptop seems to be fried as its refused to boot up, even with a hard reset. The main one seems to be having some power unit issues, and I'm needing a fan or two in the case to help cool things down. May have to redo the thermal past on the CPU, it's been a while. Could use a RAM update too while I'm at it as well.

Guess I'll be looking around to see who's upgrading PC parts and try to get their hand-me-downs. As for the laptop, it's likely going to need some tech level diagnostics, so it's shop time for it.

Well, just another hiccup in life, a speed bump on the pathway - nothing to do but do what can be done. Then figure out a way to deal with the fallout, pick a new path and get back on track

So, once things are figured out, I'll be right back at work on the site, updating, adding, and getting things done. One way of another, things will get moving forward again. This won't derail my projects, just delay them a bit.

Take care, stay safe and keep your dreams alive!
(Even when the tech gods mess up your stuff! Just keep finding a way to move forward.)

Carpe Diem!
