Coding... not as easy as it seems

So I screwed up my "grab my button" code and spent the last hour trying to fix it, and went to tons of different sites to find code that worked. Well finally it did work, but I tell ya I was getting frustrated. I had to turn on my XM radio and listen to some Christian music to center myself and not curse at the computer. Now to actually do something productive, and complete my school work for yesterday and today. Yes, I'm a procrastinator the last couple of days, but what else is new.

I'm also struggling with starting my new book, it's in a genre that I'm not very familiar with, christian contemporary romance. I know what needs to be in there and what doesn't, but dang if I'm having a hard time getting that first paragraph out. I hope that with some movies and other books, and maybe listening to some music I'll be able to get it going.

Currently Reading: Bound by Prophecy By Melissa Wright

Bound by Prophecy (Descendants Series Book 1)

By Melissa Wright

Words: 54,040

Language: English

ISBN: 9781301717385
Book Description:
Aern's only job is to protect the chosen. The trouble is, she's the key to a prophecy and everyone wants her. Hiding a girl in the center of a secret war is tricky business, but when her sister shows up to take Aern hostage, all bets are off.

A slim brunette in borrowed jeans should be the least of his problems, but there's something about Emily he just can't put to rights. And it's not her penchant for using hand tools as weapons or the fact that she seems immune to his sway.

Everything about her screams run. But when he discovers she's working toward her own prophecy, he's got no choice but to keep her safe. It might have been easy, if she didn't think she was the chosen's protector. When the opposition descends, their only hope is to stick together, but the truth unravels, and together might prove the biggest complication of them all.

Getting Life Back Together

So two days in a row I've attempted to return to work after being off for nearly three months. Let's just say it's harder than it sounds. I've struggled with getting to sleep at a good time, and ending up only getting a couple of hours sleep and having a headache, and not feeling well along with it. Let's hope that tomorrow is a better day, so that I can finally get back on track.

Me and my buddy Jack today, trying to make it a good day.

So it's been a long time since I've been to this blog, and boy has there been some updates to my life. My dad moved in with me at the end of March 2013. 

Thanksgiving we spent at Golden Corral... won't be doing that again. Broke my pinky finger on my left hand on December 10, 2013 and had to have surgery, where they put three screws to put it all back together.

 Christmas and New Year 2013 was the best one so far since being out in Texas. 

2014 was a roller coaster. Finances were all over the place. May 23 I began my weight loss journey, and on Sept 22 I had my surgery. I've lost just over 85 lbs since surgery, but have lost over 100 lbs since my highest weight in July (topped out at 415). 

My dad and I moved to a new apartment, and now he has his own bedroom and bathroom. I must say he is very happy. 

Let's just say that the first two and a half months after my surgery were real crappy, but now I'm doing better, and after a brief hospital stay at the beginning of December, I'm back on track. Now I have plans to return to work in a week, and get my life back to normal.
