There's wildfires to the southwest of us, and they're big enough that the smoke is even in the air here, even though we're like 200 miles away from the fires... We went into Albuquerque today to stock up on stuff for the weekend because my brother, sister-in-law and nephew are coming to visit tomorrow (their first visit to the new house! They're staying the whole weekend!) and there was this haze all over the mesas, and it just got worse as the day went on.

And late this afternoon, as the sun went down, it was kinda creepy because the sky was like glowing orange thanks to the sun shining through all the haze and smoke... you can SMELL the smoke in the air if you go outside, which is very bad for me and my mom, and it means my nephew won't be ale to play outside much while they're here because we don't wanna expose him to all that smoke... thankfully the house is plenty big so he has tons of room to play... but still...

Add in that my back is killing me for some reason... I think I've mentioned before that i have a bad back thanks to a childhood injury (fell about 4 feet onto a tile floor when i was about 4 or 5... so much pain at the time, lingering back issues even now), but today was... weird. We're in Wal-Mart getting food and one minute I'm totally fine, the next it feels like a giant fist just slammed into my back and it's hurting and making me feel woozy... It's mostly better now, just a little achy, and I plan on taking painkillers before I go to bed, but it scared the crap out of me when BAM out of nowhere there was pain...

I'm thinking I need to find some good writing prompts (I bought three kindle books of story prompts a couple weeks ago, I need to finish looking through them... lol) and write like a shit-ton of one shots to get back in the writing mode... lol
