Feels great

It feels great to be writing again.

I've written a few new poems recently, and posted them on my poetry website - or are scheduled to be posted, and I've even found some older poems that will be going up as well.

BUT - I've also been looking at my short story Zion's Children again and just put up a new post. I got so wrapped up in reading the story and getting reaquainted with Miri and Byrin that I let my cup of coffee get quite cold! Of course, I'm not sure when the next post will be going up after this, but it feels so good anyway.

Justin had to work this morning. Just a 6 hour shift...not even since he was home at noon, but he's gone again. Off to his parents to finish taking our red dodge off the road. Cleaning it out an such. And I think he was getting something else off his mom, a vacuum packer or something. idk. It's the first he'd mentioned it, I decided not to go, even though I've been bitching about how little quality time he spends with me...5 hours a day on Halo Wars while we're in the same room just doesn't count and he's such a young guy that he doesn't get that! But I really had gotten into my story by then anyway and didn't want to go anywhere. Since I've got the house to myself, well, and the puppy Jacalyn, I'll probably write some more. He and I are going to have to work out some sort of comprimise with this computer. I need time to write now that it's coming again.

But on that note... have to cringe a little. Ever since I've been doing more at this new job...a lot of heavy lefting, sometimes one handed...which is the only way I'm able to get my packages of meat off the line in a timely fashion - sometimes 2 or 3 at a hands are killing me. The right one especially since that's my dominate hand. That's the one that usually wakes me up several times a night because it's fallen asleep!! The left one did that to me this morning as well and is a little achy as a result. The right one has been feeling better since I was able to crack the wrist severl times. The nurses at Cargill will no doubt LOVE to hear that....if I decide to tell them. I should, but I don't want to loose this job because previous jobs have hurt my hands...please God, don't let it be Carpal Tunnel!!!...I'd probably have to go to all sorts of doctors just to be able to file a workman's comp caim against the Daily F-ing Review. What a hassle that would be! I worked in the plateroom for 3 years...often using one computer or another, all of which had a very poor setup. Oh well.
