These extra days off really haven't been productive, as I've been sitting in the recliner like a lump. It's a good thing that I got the Christmas shopping done. I've been in this place before, and learned not to wait until the last minute to do shopping or mail out the cards.
The good news is that healing is happening. It's slower than I like, but I'll be good for Christmas festivities starting this weekend and running through early next week. Maybe a bit slower than usual, but functional. Which is better than I've been since Monday. And I'm glad I got to the doctor and pharmacy early in the week, especially since the pharmacy was a bit lax about filling the prescription and wanted me to wait another day to get it. If you're on social media, you know what happened: I threatened to move the prescription to another pharmacy, and they suddenly 'found' it. They didn't want to miss out on that chunk of change from my insurance company. But I am changing pharmacies, as I later learned that they're frequently out of stock, and they do it on purpose. Mom gave me a tip on one that doesn't pull such shenanagins, and that will be my 'go to' place when I'm home sick from now on. So they won the battle, but lost the war on keeping me as a customer.
Anyway, the holidays are coming, and it looks like I'll be functional again tomorrow. I do hope you all have a safe and Merry Christmas. As a special gift to you, I have a couple of free ebook offers over the next 2 weeks on Amazon. Joy on the Journey is free December 24-28, The Tanger Falls Mystery Box Set is free December 3 - January 4, and Resonance is free January 7-11. This KDP special is my gift to you as a thank you for supporting me (and a great opportunity to get new ebooks). I have reminder posts scheduled through Hootsuite, but most of them will be through Twitter, since Facebook is good at ignoring me. But that's another blog entry, if I haven't done it already.
So that's that. Not the week before Christmas that I expected, but it's what I've got and life's like that sometimes.
I hope you have a safe, joyful, blessed, and very Merry Christmas. Be safe out there and have a wonderful holiday. May the love, joy, and peace of Christ be with you always.
