You know, I really shouldn’t be left unsupervised for long periods of time; I get into far too much trouble when left to my own devices.
I had my gallbladder removed on Monday, and managed to convince my surgeon to let me go home that same day. (I’m a nurse (LPN) and my roommate’s a nurse (RN) so there really wasn’t any valid reason to keep me overnight. I mean, it wasn’t like I was going to be overdoing things. All I did was sleep all day and all night, and in the brief moments when I wasn’t sleeping I wasn’t exactly conscious and coherent, but anyhow…)
So, I’ve been home since Monday, conscious since Tuesday.
My roommate was home Tuesday (and I still didn’t feel like doing too much) but she went back to work Wednesday, just in time for me to be feeling well enough to see what kind of trouble I could get into.
About half a lifetime ago, I had a lot of pen pals. But then life happened and I kind of drifted away from it, although not without regrets, and part of me wishes I could find the addresses of my old pals and write to them again.
(You all do see where this is going, don’t you?)
I joined a couple pen pal groups on Face Book.
And then I Googled…
I’m trying to be good, really I am.
I mean, writing (novels, not letters) is my first priority, but I miss having pen pals.
And letter writing will give me a break from novel writing, and expose me to new ideas and…
See? Anything can be rationalized and related to writing.
I wonder if there’s a group for novel writers looking for pen pals?

P.S. Me of the illegible handwriting ordered a fountain pen, too. This should be… interesting.
