Blogging A to Z 2023: Y is for YIKES!

No, it hasn’t started but I decided to make the title for this post entirely accurate.

Oblivious writer, worried dog.

Oh, gosh, where to start?

So as you may have read a couple of weeks ago, this was birthday month for me. I don’t usually celebrate for a month but it was one of those birthdays, a milestone birthday of sorts. There were two weeks of celebrating and then there were repercussions–well, that’s probably a bit drastic. Suffice to say that somewhere in all of the merriment, I picked up covid. Again. This time it was a different beast from the version I had last June. In fact, I was certain when my body began aching that it was telling me that, why, yes, you are indeed your milestone age. I had a bit of a funk and then a “duh” moment where it occurred to me that it might not be a combination of allergies and aging body but–covid or the flu. Ta da. Covid has been positively tested in the house.

I’m starting to bounce back a bit now, although I still think allergies are involved.

In the back of my mind for the past few weeks has been Blogging A to Z. Unfortunately it’s also stayed in the back of my mind. Until now.

I am going to TRY to take part. I should just say I am taking part. Maybe that’s what I’ll do: I AM taking part. 😉

The theme will be something to do with words and music. Flash fiction and song. And each day will be a surprise. For both of us. And Huck. Huck wants to take part. He’s the worried dog in the above picture who’s determined to help me out or chuckle behind my back because he is just that mischievous.

Good luck to everyone taking part in the challenge.
