Yes, it’s apologies. Seems to be that way all the time. When I don’t feel particularly great, or I’m in pain as has been the case since last year, I don’t write. I just don’t have it in me to do it. Then the surgeries came along. Well, the hernia/Gerd/gall bladder one went ok but the aftermath has been…awful. I’m not going into it. Let’s say I spend a LOT of time in another room. The knee surgery was slow in healing until that PT guy got hold of me. He has really, really damaged something and I am always in pain now. Don’t say to go back to the surgeon, I did. He didn’t listen at all but he did keep asking how his new shirt looked. The outfit he’s with is ranked as THE best, so going to anyone puts me right back in with the same group. Even the PT group is owned by them. Besides, after this, I’m not so certain I’d ever allow anyone around my knee again. There you have it. No writings as you know, no replies to anything, and just hibernating. Toodie-Nancy told me I should blog right through the ups and the downs but I felt so crappy I couldn’t. I even got the longest and most wonderful newsy email from Carrie and I haven’t replied to that, either. I feel like the worst friend.
I had a notification from my high school class that they’d opened a FB page. I didn’t have or want a FB page. I mean, for heaven’s sake, if I wasn’t keeping up with my blog, why would it be any different with FB? After a dozen letters came in, I caved and opened a page last night. Oh geezy, why oh why. The whole thing is sort of throwing me for a loop at the moment, but I’m trying to learn to work the darn site. Everyone says they love it….maybe I will, maybe I won’t. Gawd, I’m getting older by the second when I can’t navigate some site. At least I discovered the “Home” button today and that really, really helped. We’ll see, we’ll see.
I’m not saying I’m completely giving up on blogging, but I know this extended leave will continue. Hate to type a sentence and then have to get up and go to the other room. Do you have any idea how long it took to write this? Don’t ask. I have always loved blogging. I love my blog friends and I love to write and I love to see what everyone is up to, but well…..the other room, you know, the one with the tub? It’s calling again. For lord’s sake, how much can even be in a person. TMI.
For anyone that’s interested, I did copy the link to my FB page, and here it is at the bottom of this post. It’s showing my maiden name first for the school info. I hate losing touch, honestly I do.
I send oodles of heart felt love and hugs to all of you XOXOXO
