Thanks again. I would have thought so too as the new book would definitely have rekindled interest in the previous one. Keeping my paws crossed that the ouse ad the book both sell quickly. Won't State medicaid step in for MIL if she has no funds and pay for her assisted living? My MIL will run out of funds in a few months and i will have to put her on state assistance as we sure don't have that kind of money to pay for her room either Assisted living is very expensive here in Bend - way more than it was in WA. . EVery assisted living facility has a state social worker assigned and that is the person I will go through to start the process. Was that way in WA and is in OR but I can't speak for other states. If you MIL's facility has an asigned social worker I would touch base with that person if you haven't already.
Thanks, Syl! I just keep hoping for a monetary miracle! We have even listed our "sell in time of dire emergency" books, but there haven't been nibbles. I would have thought a first edition of To Kill a Mockingbird would excite a buyer now that another Harper Lee book is out. I suppose eventually it will sell.
Hope the doc visit goes well. Aw geez, not a good financial time for you two and MIL :( Wish I could think of something else you could easily and quickly do from home. I do know medical transcription requires a lot of training and is pretty complex from working with them in the HR field at an Army hospital doing desk side interviews on their jobs Just listening to the garbledy garb from docs and trying to figure out what they said. So many medical terminologies sound almost the same but refer to different parts of the body so they have to learn anatomy to some extent so they know which is the right term depending on say the part of the body the surgeon operated on. Will keep thinking positive thoughts.
I have been thinking of taking on editing, BUT I need to edit my second novel first. A year away from it means that I now see a ton of problems. I've edited about 1/5 so far. I'll upload a new text file for it when I'm done and then maybe I'll feel like I can advise others. I've actually edited three novels and two poetry collections in the past year for other authors, who have then gone on to get rave reviews. So. Maybe. I just need to actually finish the edits on Find of a Lifetime and then we'll see. Supposed to be reading it again in order to take notes to write a third in the series. I think giving my hobby that kind of time may be a luxury this year. I've got my several poetry groups, the treasurer job, bookselling, my Tails Mag. column, and we've put my mom-in-law's house on the market in Michigan, so we need to get that cleared out and cleaned up. Whew! Soooo seriously broke. Have to do something fast. My landlord just broke his back (this comes after he had a stroke a few months ago), so he's yelling for money we owe him, and Pat's mom probably doesn't have enough in her bank to cover the payment for August to stay in her care home. We hoped to have some VA benefits money come through, but it hasn't so far. We need to get her house sold fast, so we put it on the market at a low price hoping to entice investors quickly. Our own expenses are another horror story. I don't know why our sales are so bad, but I guess with ebooks now, readers aren't so hot on actual books. I've been spending about fourteen hours per day lowering prices and revising listings. Kinda depressing. I think everyone is in the same boat, though. Well, on that cheery note . . . hope your trips and summer have been and will be fab! After all of that hard work and stress with the cat sanctuary you two deserve loads of relaxation and fun!
Thanks and rite backatcha! I have no more pain, really, so that's much improved. Still eating pretty low-fat, but I did make a meatloaf that was mighty tasty and so far haven't had any tummy troubles. I see the surgeon on Wednesday. Looks like I should have had the gallbladder out long ago. May have done some damage to myself by letting it go too long. Sigh. I suppose I'll find out more definitely on Wednesday.
ED and been thinking. Have you looked into proofreading which is certainly something you can do from home and boy, you are experienced in that. I did a quick google search "proofreading from home" and there is stuff out there. But you would have to be to careful it is not one of those "pay us first and we'll find you a job" LOL Myabe contact some of the big publishing companies and see if they ever have "telecommuting" proofreading jobs.
AnimaLOL FP congrats! How are you doing? Still on the healing track? Takes time so be patient with yourself and don't overdo seeing as you're a bit of an overachiever :) . Been gone for a bit and getting ready to go on another trip again. Last long one of the summer
Great to hear - a whole new world of food possibilites with no side effects opened up.. GB problem manifest themselves in such a manner that people think for a long time it is just indigestion, getting older, whatever, until it relaly flares up.
Thanks! And yes, thankfully! Had a cup of coffee yesterday - my first in many months - and all was just fine in my digestive system. Who knew it was my gallbladder giving me so many issues for so many years?
Fairly new yes Came on line while I was gone. I had seen the preview of it and loved it. A chance for the newest LOLs every day to be posted kind of like the old voting pages were. I cruise through there every day. But I noticed nothing new posted over the weekends - M-F 9 to 5 only apparently :
Better with each day, thanks! Oh, and here's yesterday's Tails column. Things seen on pet parents' pillow the first thing in the morning. http://www.tailsinc.com/2015/07/a-twist-in-the-tail-pillow-visions/
Good. Well glad Weegee isn't a Great Dane LOL Everything in moderation gurrl until you all healed up. A passed uncle of mine had some severe gall bladder attacks and finally had it taken ut. It can be extremely painful Ihave heard.
