Oops.

I’ve been really inactive here. There’s a very good reason for it, but I still shouldn’t have let the blog go this long without an update.

My mom has pancreatic cancer. She was diagnosed last August. She’s almost done with chemo now. I’ve been taking her to almost every appointment, chemo and otherwise, for the last 6 months. It’s been a hell of a time. It’s not going to ever get better.

The good news is that I have an appointment with a rheumatologist in 2 weeks. An appointment I had to wait a couple of months for because my doctor…well, my doctor sucks. But I’ll be seeing the rheumatologist soon and that will be good.

As far as books go, I haven’t ready many. I think I’ve only finished 2 books, Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, and Mort by Terry Pratchett. At least, those are the only two I remember finishing. It’s been really hard the last few months for me.

Right now, I’m reading The View from the Cheap Seats by Neil Gaiman, and loving it. I’ve also decided this year is going to be the year for a Lord of the Rings and A Song of Ice and Fire rereads. I’ve already started on The Hobbit. I’m around halfway through. The Hobbit is my purse book and the Neil Gaiman one is my home book, mostly because The Hobbit is like a third of the size of the other one.

I’ll try to update again soon. It’s really shameful how long I went between updates last time. Wish me luck with the rheumatologist!
