Two cold days of weather, and my wrists aren't hurting so bad. I hear that it's suppsed to get warm again (in the fifties) this afternoon, so I figured I'd update before yet another temperature fluctuation.

I've been really missing playing EQ2, and writing for Thresholds. It's kind of gotten me depressed, that I can't be as active in my online things as I want to be. I miss the social interaction, and the creative outlet both allow me. *sighs*

I have the wrist braces, of course, but anymore, my elbows cause my wrists to ache just from sitting on the arm rests of my chair. And, if I hold my elbows at my sides, instead of putting them on the rests, my hands start to fall asleep. Bothersome, really. I am trying to find a way to pad the arm rests of my chair, so hopefully that won't be a problem after my next payday.

There was an article I read in one of those home remedies magazines that said massaging (actually, the word they used was "plucking") your forearm muscle would help with the type of discomfort I have. So, there I was at the nurses station, plucking at my arm like I would a guitar string. The article said I would know if I was doing it right, if my ring finger twitched. It started twitching, and for a few minutes, my wrist really -did- feel better. About ten minutes later, though, my last three fingers went numb, and there was this excrutiating burning sensation from my inner elbow to the base of my thumb. So, uh, yeah. Won't be doing that again.

I have been doing a lot of reading in my spare time, though, since I don't like to sit on the couch and watch TV all day. I managed to make it through the entire left behind series, and am eager to start on the Chronicals of Narnia. Morgan want's me to finish reading him Eragon, though, so I guess that's what I'll be into for the next few weeks.

Also, I've been cooking every day. Just one meal, but it's made with love. Morgan's been keeping up with the dishes (Morgan Quote: "It's not so hard, once we got soap for the dishwasher." Uh, the silly thing's been sitting in the kitchen since we moved here, dude. But okay. I'm just glad he's doing them now. *smiles*), so I can cook whatver I want, every day. Yay! I love to cook.

Sometimes, I even just sit, browsing through recipie books, looking at all the neat things I could mix up in my kitchen. *nods* Oh, the deliciousness to be found in Betty Crocker's Easy Meals, or Better Homes and Garden's Award Winning Recipies. *tummy growls*

Anyway, there you go. A genuine update. Now to go see if there's any leftover chilli from yesterday, since I've gotten my tummy all hungry! *waves*

I've been wondering about Eragon, and if it's good. Do you like it? I also want to read the Chronicles of Narnia. I've always wanted to, but never have. We did have the book set, but the first one is missing. Now they're in storage. I remember seeing a small bit of the cartoon movie a long time ago. I think. Anyway, we watched the old live action movie of it today, so I finally know exactly what happens anyway. Still want to see the new movie though.

I also want to finish the left behind series. I never got past book 9 I think it was. Oh! Did you know that there's now a book thats the first of a series that will be like a prequel to what happened to all of those people before the rapture? I found it on Amazon. There may be more than one now, I'm not sure.

Hmm. It's not bad, but it takes a bit to get to the dragon part. And, it's very descriptive about the scenery and stuff, which some people like, but I don't. I want the meat, the plot, the scandel, the story. My brain makes up the setting as I read...and having it described to me makes it harder for me to get into the story.

Also, I'm reading it aloud to Morgan, which seems so slow. I read VERY quickly (I finish 2000 page books in less than two days, normally) but outloud, I stutter if I don't take my time. And, it's like my mind races ahead a line or two, and I skip words, so it's very tedious.

But, Morgan LOVES it. *nods* He really really likes it. A lot. *giggles* He wants me to hurry up, so I can read him the sequel, Eldar.

Aout The Rising, yes. The lady I borrowed all the left behind books from has that series, too. She actually brought me that book lastnight at work to read, which was quite humerous, being as you mentioned it here. I'm about sixty pages in, and while it's a little dry, I know when it gets good, it'll be awesome.
