A Missy & Blog Update

Last week, I was hoping that I'd be back to blogging full-time this week... but that doesn't seem to be working out too well. It's nothing bad, really - just trying to catch up with life. If you follow me on Facebook, then you'll know that I was told at my one week appointment that I'm cancer-free. This still has me over the moon because, when you come from a family decimated by cancer, cancer-free isn't something you're used to hearing. Fortunately for me, I caught it super early and there's still a very high chance that I can still have babies - although if I can't, then I'm not too hurt by the idea of being a crazy chihuahua lady my whole life either. ;)

I'm still recovering, which kind of varies from day to day. Some days I'm super awesome and other days I end up thinking I'm super awesome... until I overdo it and have to start all over again. Pacing myself seems to be my biggest challenge right now. So, that's what I'm trying. I have a cousin getting married this weekend which means I'll be going out of town for that. Out of town trips (especially when I drive) really put me out for a while. On top of this, I have a ton of reviews that I have to write for places other than this blog as well as having to catch up with authors and publishers for this blog. It's a lot to do, so I'm starting with the priority of the other reviews as well as e-mails in response to requests and such for this blog. It's not saying I think that's more important than this blog because it's not, but it is an obligation that I need to be responsible for.

As far as my Epic Followers Giveaway, I haven't finished tallying up all of the points for that. You guys were AMAZING with promoting, so I want to be sure that I'm as equally amazing at making sure every single entry is accounted for to get the prizes to the right people. So, don't give up! I should have that done soon.

I'm also tweaking a few things on the blog that you may or may not notice. One of the things I'll be doing very soon is the Blog Roll page. If you want your book blog to be linked, then feel free to leave your link on this post.. or post it on my Facebook page. I'll be checking both while I'm working on it.

Thanks for everything, guys! I'll see you all very soon!!

Glad you're doing better Missy! The road to recovery can be a long and winding one. You never know when you'll accidentally over do it just because you think you're feeling better. Most doctors recommend about 4 weeks to full recovery time on those things but sometimes even then your body doesn't want to do what it used to just yet. Just do what you gotta do and take it easy while doing it! =)

Just wanted to send out some well wishes. I hope things stay good and you get to 100% again.

It's nice to read your voice again =) I'm glad to hear your cancer free and yes it is hard. my family has been getting them sporadically and we don't even know who will get it and won't. so it's pretty scary. Live life to the fullest Missy and always stay safe =D
Oh, and I would love to be added too your blog roll too... I'd love to join your familia ^_^
Take care always!

Cancer is scary. You're so optimistic about it. That's kinda cool! It's good that you're recovering. Let's hope the cancerous cells don't come back.

Missy, I'm really glad you're cancer free... that's some scary stuff to have to deal with. I had some similar stuff after I had my son with abnormal cells on something haha.. uterus? But they said it could turn into cancer etc and I was really freaked out, thinking I was going to die... they ended up freaking them off and checking me every month and thankfully it stayed away. I have a chihuahua too... a girl Jasmine :) Take it easy and rest lots... we'll all still be here later.

Btw, I would Love if you wanted to add my Paranormal Book checklisting site www.paranormaladdicts.com :) It's not a blog but I do reviews on there and users can create their own Parnormal book checklist from authors they like or want to try :) so hopefully that's relevant enough :)

Rest well for the wedding *hugs*

Missy, what amazing news! I had an ovary removed because of cysts that they were afraid could become cancerous...it is awful and painful. I'm so glad you're on the mend! And babies have a way of defying science and doctors' odds! So happy to hear you're better, and take your time! The blogosphere will be happily waiting when you get back!

Rachel said...
