7 Google Tools You Don’t Know About…Yet! →
world-shaker: Here are 2 of them: 3.) Google Building Maker - A great 3D modeling tool used for adding buildings to Google Earth.

writing advice: How to Bring Characters to Life →
writingadvice: By Hope Hammond “When writing a novel a writer should create living people… people, not characters. A character is a caricature.” ~ Ernest Hemingway. The first tip for creating fictional character sketches is to make sure they’re actual people. Not just a hollow “caricature” — a real…
You know, it never occurred to me that July would THE worst month to get a hysterectomy. While I didn’t have much choice in the matter (as a matter of fact, I was shooting for December), but I should have tried harder to wait until the temperature dropped and the leaves turned to have this God forsaken procedure.

I haven’t been able to get my pain levels under an 8 on a 1-10 scale. I’m basically miserable. I get new meds to try on Monday, but that seems like an eternity from now.

Go ahead, lose yourself
All day today I’ve been nervous and dreading my surgery tomorrow. I got to spend the day with Cylie because S has to work the next few days. It was the perfect distraction I needed. We laid around and watched terrible Miley Cyrus movies. Normally, I’m a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, but come on. The Last Song was terrible! Then when it was time for lunch, Cylie didn’t want to move....
