Year end review!

It's been a year since I started this blog and I haven't really written much. I've tried doing the same thing on paper but I just can't get into it. I have great conversations in my head, really good journal entries. Unfortunately they don't make it to paper...or computer. This year over all has been good. Not eventful but after my past few years, I love uneventful. I read probably more than I ever have. I'm not great at keeping track of that but am going to try this year. I do write down a lot of books I read on the website Goodreads but not nearly the amount I do. I have found myself re-reading some of my favorites, especially M.C. Beaton. Does anyone else do this?

Healthwise it's been steady. The nerve damage has extended to my feet. When I walk it feels like someone has ripped the skin and flesh off my feet and I am walking on the bones. In other words, it hurts like hell. The operation I am supposed to have will install a spinal cord stimulator in my back. Basically a pacemaker will be put in my stomach that will send electrical impulses to my spinal cord that will change pain signals to tingles, kind of like what it feels like when your foot goes to sleep. Those tingles are supposed to be more bareable  than the pain. I'm nervous about this operation but it's my last hope. I was supposed to have it in the fall but this is Nova Scotia, they could have meant Fall 2016.

There isn't much else to say. I live a quiet life. I rarely go out and that, in all honesty, makes me happy. I hope and pray that 2014 will be good for us and my loved ones (few as they are) as well.
