Dad's still recovering a bit from the surgery last month. But, she's doing well. I'm so glad to be home, and not in Arizona. There's only so much of that sort of heat I can stand...I've tried to help her as much as I can since she had the surgery. Apparently helped her so much that my shoulder muscles spasmed. It was very painful, and tough to move my arms around. I healed up eventually though.

Found out that I lost a lot of weight. Over 100 pounds from my heaviest, or 4 pant sizes. I'm losing quite a bit each week or so. People are noticing. Eating much smaller meals has helped a lot. I set the amount of calories I have for the day, and split it up between 5 small meals. Feels like I'm grazing all day. But, I get to have whatever I want, only in those small amounts. Sometimes the leftovers from going to a restaurant can last for a whole week's worth of lunches. I'm getting more amazed at just how big meals are in restaurants. Kind of opens your eyes.

I've also been trying to do sit-ups twice a day, and walk 4 miles. Doing the sit-ups when I wake up and when I go to bed. Splitting the 4 miles into 2 walks. One in the morning and one at sunset. Makes them really enjoyable.

Had minor surgery early Tuesday morning. Even though it was 'minor', I still had to be put under anesthesia. I was so nervous about it. It felt like a whirlwind. They were super sneaky about the anesthesia. Telling me all that they were giving me was oxygen... :iconnorwayunimpressedplz:

I'm close to finishing my 2nd novel. It's a short story anthology based on my recurring nightmares. I'm on the 11th story, and am debating whether I should end it here or not. I'm cleaning up a meme I filled out, in Photoshop. Hopefully, I'll post that soon. Also, drew out my characters' outfits/accessories from Alliance, my first novel. I'm in the process of coloring them. I rarely color things, but I have so many colored pencils and markers, I feel I need to use them every so often. Plus, it looks more 'alive'.
