I thought Danyel wanted to write Novels? Why do I see these weird blog thingys?

I wanted to clarify to anyone who may actually take to read this blog to understand why I took a break from writing and editing on my novels. In October 2013, I was off work and unable to drive for 3 months due to my epilepsy. I was put through battery of tests and on a couple meds, off a med then up-ed and up-ed the dosages until I was drugged up enough for them to feel that I was safe to not have seizures. Then I had to take the meds long enough to not be a walking zombie in order to get the okay to get my driving privileges back.

Needless to say my brain stopped working properly, during my time off I struggled to help with my then 3rd grade son's homework as the meds were in me it got a little better. It took me over six months before I could read a book and even longer before I was writing again. I started reviewing products for two reasons-- one I LOVE FREE STUFF, especially nice free stuff like 75 dollar face cream; and finally it kept me writing even if it was a few hundred words here and there. Its wasn't novels but it was words and something was better than nothing.

A moon or two ago I realized my seizures did not seem to be under control the way I wanted them to be. Each month the I seem to be adding another bad day, I was not eating gluten, I could not figure it out. Long story short, New neurologist, titrated off Lyrica and every day in the weening process has been another day closer to a clear head. Today is day 3 with no Lyrica. Maybe I will return to my real love-- my books. I can say my muse has been whispering in my ear in the shower and when I am driving. That is where I started writing this blog.

Well today's review is for Smooth Viking Beard Conditioner. Hubby started growing a beard last summer and the only part of his transformation that I did not love was that facial hair is not very soft. Smooth Viking beard conditioner does make the facial hair softer so it does what its name suggests. Their ingredients are 100% Natural: Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba, Beeswax, Pure Essential Oil. The product was high quality balm and came in teeny manly burlap sack. There is only one thing I didn't care for. The scent was not appealing enough for my hubby enjoy the softness of the conditioning that close to his nose though, just personal preference of scent not product.
