Rich got out of the hospital on Monday and will be returning to work tomorrow. That puts a lot of things back on track for us. He is back to healing. Our schedules can go back to our usual routines. Paychecks will be coming in as expected. We can get back to looking at car selling/buying and career advancement.

Bookup is starting the new membership launch as I type this. Everything isn’t perfect, but the forum and the membership site is ready for the first wave to enter. Our Professional members first, and then, hopefully with a few bugs caught and squished, the rest of our members tomorrow. He has also added a new chess engine to the program for analysis, that he is very excited about.

I’ve been thinking about my writing a lot lately, and my reading. Lately, I read books for information and I write about my life. I used to read and write for escape, but I find that I am far more satisfied and happy with my life than I ever have been. Nothing is perfect, there are big stresses and little stresses, but I am Happy, with my life, and myself.  Does this mean I won’t write any more fiction, stories about rogues and vampires and death? Not necessarily, but right now, my focus is on other things.

Life is good.

The memorial on Saturday was very well attended. The community came together to support each other and remember our friend. He was remembered, celebrated and honored. He will be missed, but his spirit will live on in all of us.

Rich is still in hospital. But is doing much better today. We’re waiting on the doc as I type this, but we are more hopeful that things are healing properly and our time here may be winding down.

Getting ready to do a massive change to the Bookup website, heading out of FrontPage and into WordPress. We’ve got the membership system running, and a forum integrated, just some code to be played with to finish that off so we can move the members into it.

Life is good, things are moving forward.

All the King’s Horses and All the King’s Men June 10, 2010

Why would you use horses to put an egg back together in the first place? Rich’s been put back together and we’re spending the week in hospital recovering.

Working with a new membership system and the old phpbb3 forum for Bookup this week. I’ve got it about half set up. Just the details now. Fingers crossed… again.

The market is going down, time to learn about puts instead of calls.

Brain a little scattered, not much sleep this week.

Home from the hospital nearly a week now. We’re working things out and still waiting. Waiting on tax refund, waiting on the doctor’s appointment tomorrow, waiting to see what happens next. I haven’t been writing stories yet this year. I haven’t been submitting, either. I was waiting for the markets to open back up, and then I got busy and then Rich ended up in the hospital. I bought a netbook and broke it a week later. I’ve bought a new screen to try and fix it. Life is running along at its usual crazy pace and I haven’t taken back control of the reins, yet. It’s time to get back in the driver’s seat and make my life what I want it to be.

So one trip to the emergency room leads to checking Rich into the hospital and then a few days later to surgery, and down to recovery and restrictive visiting hours for a week. The wound nurse and the surgeon argue about closing the wound and that’s now scheduled for tomorrow, and I might get to take him home by the end of the week.

Life has been full of nurses and doctors this week. Next week we get health insurance back.

Waiting to see how money balances out. Starting to look back at investing depending on how that goes. I’m getting work done here and there, and Rich’s boss is looking into PTO for last week and this. I’ll probably have at least one day off of B&N this week, next week I’m only scheduled for two days. Joy.  We’ll make it work, though.
