Still Fighting The Stupid Bug

I’m finally well enough that I think tomorrow I’ll be able to work. At least half the day. But boy, has this been a slog. And part of the problem is that I’ve been good and responsible for probably the first time in my life, and didn’t try to power through the illness.

Of course, you’ll say that it’s because I’m paying for not being good and responsible while working on the house in Colorado, or during the many many trips, from house hunting to moving trips. And I won’t say you’re wrong.

Still, it’s extremely frustrating to now be late with two books, as well as with unpacking in this house, so we can finally be at home. I did do some minimal kitchen unpacking this week, which means it’s semi-functional, but seriously.

Ah, well, at least I’m starting to feel better, right?

While I was down I gave an interview to Worldshapers podcast (You’ll like it. I even said Moose and squirrel!)

Frankly I probably sound a little deranged, so…. you know, normal for me.

Meanwhile, I also did a review of Dave Freer’s book, which you should go buy right now. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Just buy the book. You may thank me later. If You Buy Only One Book This Year, Buy Cloud Castles by DaveĀ Freer.

(Though keep in mind that Amanda Green and I will thank you if you also buy hers — also out today — and the ones I’m trying to finish and for that matter the other books of this fine group of writers here. But if you can’t afford it, then buy Dave’s. You can catch up with us later.)

  1. Of course, you’ll say that it’s because I’m paying for not being good and responsible while working on the house in Colorado, or during the many many trips, from house hunting to moving trips. And I won’t say you’re wrong.

    I wouldn’t say that!
    One, it’s rude, and two, I can’t run that fast…..

  2. My family found that keeping an inhaler on hand and checking blood oxygen helps with this thing a lot.

    For me the main symptoms cleared up after a week or so, but the lungs were still slowly filling with goo for the next two weeks and counting. Checking the blood oxygen, and using the inhaler when it dropped to much definitely help move things out.

    1. The Daughter and I both had Covid pneumonia … yes, properly diagnosed at a major military hospital ER – and we were both prescribed inhalers and appropriate medications. Threw the pneumonia in days, the Commie Crud shortly thereafter.
      We were tag-teaming, taking care of Wee Jamie during this time, which lasted almost a month … who had a temperature and a runny nose for about a day.
      We’re done with masks, and the whole thing. Had the Crud, recovered, so we’re golden. Want to move on with life, now.

  3. In the past week I’ve purchased Amanda’s last two, first in Peter’s new western series, and Dave’s even though I did an edit on his final draft. The Kindle purchase not only to have a copy of the published version, but also I can leave a review from a confirmed purchaser.
    What the hell, food is over rated.

  4. I’m gonna buy Dave F.’s book as soon as I get paid by some clients, and send a payment to the body shop to free my car from durance vile, after a little incident in November…which incident was totally not my fault, but insurance wouldn’t pay for the necessary repairs to the hood…
