My goodness.

So, here’s what’s going down:

THREE medical tests to check out my acid reflux in closer scrutiny. I have a new gastroenterologist, and last week I had an esophogram, this week I have manotremy, and next week I have endoscopy. He thinks I might have a hiatal hernia, so we’re looking to see if that’s a true thing or not. IF it is, maybe we can do a bit of repair, and my reflux would reduce. That’s all a big maybe, but we live in hope.

TWO phone interviews for a new job. I’m happy to stay at my current job, but I wanted to try out my interview materials for a deanship that might open here, and I’m beginning to look toward our Florida move, which might happen in as few as three years, so I thought I would apply for some very attractive Florida openings. Two of those colleges decided to do the equivalent of a phone interview, so cool. Advantages and disadvantages. We’ll just see how things play out.

ONE book. At this point my spring break plan is to write like a maniac, now not so much as to get the book out the door, but to get as much done as possible. If there’s anything having the book read told me, it’s that we’re some distance from solicitation to those 4 waiting agents, BUT I’m on it. My latest trick is to whack the book into scenes and chart the scenes into series, and then figure out where to add, subtract, and deepen. Sounds easy when you look at that sentence. 🙂

So, keeping busy. Hoping you’re all good.
