I'm going to do it. 50,000 words in 30 days. Tenative novel title: Intrusive

More later.

So - since I just had VSG surgery...

My weight will decrease as my word count increases.

Whatcha think about that?

Sipping and pacing...

Today was my first post-op checkup. It has been one week.

I have released more weight. Yay.

I am having one small bathroom complication. Thus the pacing as I can't really go for a very long walk yet.

And the sipping is because that is what you have to do when your stomach has been reduced by 80%. You sip because big swallows just won't get it.

So for now, I'm sipping, pacing, releasing weight and NOT regretting my surgery.

Also - I am spending more time in my room which reminds me - my room needs some redoing.

I need a new desk to create a new writing space.

This one from pottery barn would work:

Of course, even if I could, I would not pay $1499 for this desk. Maybe I can find one to redo. Along with an armoire (pottery barn, again) like this:

If I could find some pieces of furniture like this that I could distress and change colors on - I would love that.

What's up with y'all? Anything got you walking the floor?

Just wanted everyone to know - I made it through surgery just fine. I'm sore and I'm recovering. Thanks for all the well wishes.
