I have an appointment with an neuro opthomologist on the 15th. Hopefully they can figure out what's wrong with my eye and even reverse the damage that's been done.

Also, I'm doing Camp NaNoWriMo this July. Haven't really had anything post worth as of late. Might throw some Dragon's Blood at you or something. Now sure yet.
About a month or so ago I took up an eye patch so I can function. My doctor has no idea what's going on with my eye and suggests I keep the patch on until I can be seen by a refereed nuro optomologist. Who was supposed to call me and still hasn't. The VA has been dragging their feet on getting me the paper work I need to update my case. But this I was able to handle, irksome as it may be.

Last night I found out, despite my own precations to keep my eye from getting more damaged, I have lost all low light vision in that eye. The distortion is getting worse and there is NOTHING I can do. Like what the hell? I'm supposed to be able to function properly and I'm just falling apart and no one is helping.

Eye patches are getting beyond annoying. All I have are cheep temporary eye patches with foam that degrade when in contact with sweat. Then the foam get in my eye and it's even more of a pain. I don't wear the patch then I get nauseated from the things I see with my eye. Also people really don't pay attention. Seriously, I swear people bump into my blind side on purpose now. I can't see you, get out of the way, make a hole. 

I don't really have anything I can do, and I guess that's why I'm so pissed off. I have the kids so I can't just float away and 'get better' because one, they're my responsibility and two I don't think I'm going to get better. 
ARGH.... okay not really. I do have an eyepatch though. As many of you probably don't know, I suffer from optical migraines. These ocasionally take the sight from one of my eyes for a few moments before turning back to normal. Well I had one a few weeks ago that was so rough that things didn't go back to normal. I was never told that optical migraines can permanently damage my sight. So, to rest my eye (which now has lovely underwater vision) I am wearing a very crudely made eyepatch. 

Other news, I'm still writing Chasing Foxes and plan on posting bits of 'From the Blood of Dragons' (once known as Vampire's Fairy Tale) on a future date. 

I am on daily. Been waking up at 5:30 am my time just so I can write. Please don't think I've gone into hiding again. Just busy.
Wet and full was the only way to describe it. We had gotten too distracted, and it was understandable. We didn’t go out to eat that often and you weren’t completely on the big kid wagon yet. You did know you had to go, just a little too late. It had already happened. But that’s what pull ups are for. They’re there for your mistakes. They’re there for you to learn. And they're there for you to grow.

So we packed you in the car, drove across the parking lot to the nearest store with a family bathroom. I grabbed your big-kid back-pack filled with pull ups and wipes. You took my finger and we walked to the store.

We were nearly there. Just a little bit to go. You smiled and waved to people as the drove or walked by, even said 'hi' to a large group of older folks. And then you said it. Words that made my heart sink for just a second.

“Uh-Oh.”

“What uh-oh?” I asked looking over at you quickly. It wasn’t a hard ‘uh-oh’ to miss. In fact it was a really big uh-oh that made my face turn red as the older people began sniggering.

Your pants, and your pull-up had both fallen below your knees. All of your 2 year old glory was out for the world to see.

“Wow,” I found myself sounding much more composed than I felt, “That is an uh-oh.” I pulled up your pull-up and pants and picked up. “Let’s go fix your uh-oh.” With a kiss on your nose we continued on to the store. We continued to grow.
Uh-oh
This happened the other day and I guess I just wanted to share this story. Kind of strange to find myself growing up even though I'm technically a grown up.

I am a stay at home mom of two crazy children who like listening to me read H.P Lovecraft, fantasy stories and the occasion story by Mom.

My first love was my imagination and I am still in love with it. Now that my heart has more occupants I have less time to write, but that doesn't mean I am unhappy.

I enjoy writing just to write, but if someone likes it, it makes me twice as happy. If you don't like it I could always use the critique. I can always improve.

Doing great just decided it was time to come back. Actually I have ulterior motives. I am now a senior editor at an online publisher and I came back to start trying to find new talent. It looks like you had a baby? Congrats - they are beautiful creatures.
