Another week and I’ve managed to post another blog.
This week was pretty much like every other week … work, not able to take a break during lunch to write, so that story I have been trying to finish is still in the works.
We shall see what next week happens to look like.

As some of you may have discovered, I have taken a hiatus from working on pretty much anything. There haven’t been any new creatures posted for New Mutant Monday, nor have I written up any new magic items for Wednesday’s Wondrous Works.
I’m currently working on another short story, but I can’t say when it will be done. The story is going to be longer than I originally had planned.
Does this mean I’m quitting all the projects and work I’ve done over the past 6 years? I’d say probably not.

I skipped last week’s blog due to my friend coming in from Regina to visit. I haven’t seen Gary for several years and my mom passing was the excuse he needed to come and visit.
Talk about years of catching up. I found out a lot about his life and what has been happening over the past few years – despite the fact we’re friends on Facebook and he’s the one who got me into using it.
That is the reason my New Mutant Monday series was late, as well as Wednesday’s Wondrous Works, and no blog.

It has been an interesting week, to say the least.
First my mom passed away last Sunday. Then on Tuesday my son was diagnosed with a pneumonia, and on the same day I went for a test to see why I was suffering numbness and pain in both arms. As it turns out, I have moderate to severe carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists.
Then Wednesday we cremated my mom.

As it turns out, the first month of 2017 has not been exactly the kindest we could have imagined. First, it’s been damn cold! I’ve seen far, far worse when I lived in Regina back as a kid, but the past couple of years the winters have been really warm, so we got spoiled.
This is nothing, what really made the month so hard and it’s just halfway through is the fact that we lost my mom on Sunday, January 15th, at 4:15 in the morning.

This week has been a bit of a learning experience. I did mention in my previous blog I was going to change things up a little… I am still going to be writing up the New Mutant Monday creatures for Gamma World and Mutant Future, but I am also statting them up for Pathfinder.
As of right now I have created a total of four Pathfinder creatures, and it has been a very interesting time.
