I Wanna New Nose

Because this one is pretty much broken. Don't get me wrong,I'm grateful to have a functioning nose AT ALL! The fact that I have no tumor deep in the recesses of my nasal passages delights me to NO END! I just wish that they had left the only nose I have feeling a little less like something the crypt-keeper sleeps in and a little more like a breathing device.

Honestly, I think they used a cheese grater to get up there.


In writing news... Spent the weekend in a happy stoned state of creativity. I knew stringing words together would be dumb since my language skills had been reduced to that of a visiting martian, so I went another route. This is what I came up with-- My Looking for Laguna collage.

In the center, I have some key plot points and chacterizations that I inked out with my Inspiration program. Then I did cut, paste, and pin for the rest of it. I had a blast doing it, but with the amount of pain meds I was under, I would have been happy doing almost anything.

In other writing news, I have several articles that need to be worked on this week. I'm in a holding pattern on my fiction until I get some feedback from my agent, but that's okay. I have enough on my plate. Maybe I'll make some pie. Only problem is... I can't smell anything!

Sympathy on the nose thing. I've had three nose surgeries, and recovery SUCKS!

Yikes, Teri. That sucks! Hope you're feeling better soon. Dig the collage. :)

Think of it this way, without a sense of smell, you'll be less tempted to eat and that could lead to losing weight! I'd totally give up my sense of smell (temporarily) for that kind of result.

Glad everything's okay. Health stuff can be scary. Hugs!

Sorry to hear about your recovery woes, but I'm SO FREAKIN' GLAD to hear everything's going to be okay. I can't even begin to imagine how worried you must have been.

And I'm with Kristen - I like the weight loss side benefits of not being able to smell. ;)

The collage is beautiful! And I'm so glad the tumor wasn't a tumor. Sorry about the owie nose, but it will get better.
