I love Tucson

Tucson is a great city, not too big, not too small. Lots of cool things there like 4th Ave., indie bookstores, the folk instrument shop, Beyond Bread, saguaros, a real mountain with trees and snow (well, snow in winter), much less traffic than Phoenix, and when you want to get across town it's not a three-hour journey for which you need to pack a lunch.

This weekend, Tucson will also have me speaking at the local RWA chapter and signing books. Looking forward to it.

Hope my back cooperates. I am going armed with pillows, back brace, heating pad, medication, and a driver. Today was a milestone--I was able to put a load of laundry in the wash. Couldn't actually take it out of the wash, but it's a step forward. Oh, and went out myself to get the mail. Walked all the way to the end of the driveway and back, yep. Had to rest afterward, but you know, baby steps.

The worst thing about all this is that today is our anniversary! My husband and I have been married 21 years as of today. We've been through a lot together, ups and downs, bad times and good. I'd much rather be out to dinner with him than propped in a nest of pillows on the couch, but then again, we are together. I guess we can celebrate being in love and staying in love by holding hands and watching Monarch of the Glen as much as with a fancy meal. (Fancy meal later, when I get better :-).
