A Long-Winded Update

It's been about a week, and I'm happy to say that I think I'm getting better from the accident at the pace I expected. I'm now able sit up for longer times without a whole lot of pain and dizziness, so I can get back on my computer for longer times. I'd like to thank all of you who left such kind comments on both The Everyday Adventurer and Nature Center Magazine. And I'd especially like to thank those of you who wrote the wonderful posts about me. It all has helped me feel a lot better and I really appreciate it. I read your comments and your posts the same days they were up, but I couldn't stay on for much longer than that.

I'm still having a lot of problems, but I think I am steadily getting better. So on Monday I will resume editing and posting on Nature Center Magazine. I'm still not ready to resume posting on The Everyday Adventurer yet though.

This is mostly because of the format of each site. Nature Center Magazine doesn't require as much work from me because I'm not the only writer, and I'm still not feeling very well. Plus I don't have to get up and walk to get material to write about for it, which I won't be able to do for awhile. I feel that writing a little bit will help me get moving again though. The Everyday Adventurer is going to be much harder for me. I still can't stay on the computer for very long without having to stop, and I've had some trouble thinking straight, so I'm not able to write very much yet. It's also going to take awhile longer for me to be able to go back and walk my nature parks.

There have been a few ideas given to me for The Everyday Adventurer, and I'm considering a few other things as well. I'll give another update on that as soon as I feel well enough to begin posting something on The Everyday Adventurer again. In the meantime I'll be doing all my work at Nature Center Magazine.

I'll also be reading all of your blogs as much as I can. I've already been lurking around just a little bit now. You'll all begin to see my name in your comments sections as time goes by. It's not going to be much at first, but I hope to be able to do more as I get better.

Sorry I haven't really given many details about my injuries, but as many of you know I don't really like talking about myself. I tell all of you more than I tell most people. The main thing keeping me off the computer for very long is a concussion. There are other, worse things wrong that I'd rather not talk about too much. The concussion is what is keeping me off the computer, so I feel that is the important thing right now. I'll be on here longer as it gets better. I hope it's not long, but nobody seems to know how long it will take.

Anyway, Nature Center Magazine will be back up and running on Monday. I'll give another update shortly before I'm able to start posting on The Everyday Adventurer again. I'm hoping I can write a little bit for it in a week or two. And thanks again for all of your concern. I really do appreciate it. It has helped a lot.
