Silence


It has been a long time since I actually wrote more than a few words over here. Let’s see if I can catch you all up to date.

No, I didn’t finish  Camp NaNo. I got to about halfway and ran out of juice? Fibro-flare? Life? happened. I can’t remember two minutes ago, so remembering that long ago is foggy. I still like my plot potential but haven’t been able to get back into it. Time travel has to be well thought out. Since this one is different than any I have ever read, I don’t want it to be NaNo-ed together. I need to step back and make a tight outline. Will it be this year’s NaNo? I haven’t decided. Nor have I decided if I want to write a NaNo this year. If I can get a tight enough outline before Halloween, I might just try to add another 50K to this 25K story. Who knows?

I have spoken about my new medicine, Gubabapentin (Neurontin), that may be helping me have a few good days now. Yes, a few. As of two week ends I could count 3 good days. On these days I felt pain in joints but not the all over pain and fatigue I have gotten used to. The doctor said it takes a while to titrate to the proper dosage that will be better for me.

Which brings me to just over a week ago.  Two  Wednesdays ago, a friend called saying she wanted me to accompany her to the GeoCaching Con in Las Vegas. At that time it seemed that it would take a perfect storm to actually pull it off. She was being gifted the trip, basically, even down to car and hotel room. Even that day (Wednesday), I felt horrible with fibro so I was afraid to think of the week end.

As it turned out, my hubby was able to help me pack, and I was able to go. I figured that even with pain I wouldn’t be doing more than I do here at home. I didn’t feel well enough to trust myself to help with the driving, but we were able to stop at rest stops along the way and even pick up a couple caches. So I was sitting in a car or in a hotel room. I still had fibro-pain, worse coming home than on the trip down but the sites I saw from where I was sitting was at least different than the four walls I see here. The bad thing? A flare I felt on the trip back got worse the whole next week. I am thinking I am better, finally, today. Hence a real blog.  🙂

Geocaching – The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site. Okay, I will admit I am a total Noob. Though I have been on the inside of some finds because I have an ID on the site, I still feel like a Muggle, what the true GeoCachers call the outsiders. Today, though, I am in Vegas because my friend wanted company on the long trip. She will be attending the GeoCoinFest.

Me, I wanted a road-trip and then a chance to veg in the hotel room. The trip, well, the prep for the trip, then the trip nearly killed me. Fibro is worse today. But at least I’m hurting with new scenery. Speaking of the hotel. It is a suite. It has a kitchenette, bedroom, living room, etc. Which was welcome for the two of us on our total lack of incomes. (The trip was a gift to my friend, I am just lucky to be the tag-along.) The gripes are, we had no dishes or liquid dish detergent for the few cups we do have. Even worse was the internet costs $12.99 a day. Luckily, I was able to check and send emails on my cell, but the screen is so small I was bug-eyed within moments. Still, I was able to get an email to my hubby who somehow missed texts telling that we arrived safe and sound.

Back to the Geo-caching. We found a few on the way, and my friend has picked up a few from the con for me to list. Yippee, me! Some parts of me really feel excited about the finds, like finding the golden ticket on the Easter Egg Hunt, but other parts of me think of it as busy work. I can see that it will get me out of the house and won’t cost money. Yes, really, there is something out there that is free and healthy–and fun! AND there is no deadline so I can do this as I can.

Negative? I am sure I will soon find it fun, is registering my finds. Which I must do now while I am thinking of it. Many people are addicted to this so maybe you might be, too? Go check it out. If you are a cacher let me know, be my friend, darscache, teach me or we can learn together. 🙂
