Honey, I'm Home's Morning Mantra ~~ Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh NO, She's up!"

As I trip over my own feet again…..

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  Red heartXOXOXO

  1. I was going to say something 'funny' about you blogging once a year and ask if you saw your shadow. I know so very much about not wanting to do anything. I take it you survived the docs and pt. Your photo on FB is fab! How can you look so purty all the time. I usually look the way I feel. heh. Glad to see you are boldly going where you've never been. My advice? "Wing it" BUWAHHHH! Love and hugs.

  2. Hi Jenny I had to come check if you had blogged since I saw you on facebook and have sent a friend invite to you there. I still rarely make it here to the blogging world as well. So many other things going on to keep me busy so have enjoyed facebook to stay up with all my friends from the internet as well as family and other friends. You will love it once you get going. Even though I haven't blogged for some months now, I am not giving it up. When I find time I will get another blog out as well. No problem about not replying to my e-mail. I have done that as well. When the time is right it happens. I also feel if it helps you to blog about all you are going through you should be blogging as it is a form of therapy to get if out of you someone. What an horrible ordeal you have been through and still trying to get through more. Anyway my dear love to see you blogging or on facebook. Hugs Carrie

  3. jenny, I hate you are suffering so much. I some times feel that I am falling apart...and other times I feel so strong. It's the new way medical proffessionals are taking or not taking care of us. I am wishing a complete recovery. xoxo,Susie

  4. About the other room you always go to. If you had a tablet or ipod or something small just take it along. I am so busy often the only time I can sit and relax and catch up on facebook is when I am sitting on the thrown. Well for some people they read magazines or books. For me it is catching up on facebook. I know it disgusts many people when I share that info. But that's life in my house. Also so much easier on my shoulders and neck rather then typing here at the laptop. Just saying I lovvvvve my iPod and what it can do. Everything an iphone can do just no phone calls or GPS.

  5. Jenny, oh my Jenny. How badly I feel for you, girl. You've been through so very much, and it breaks my heart for you. I think of you often! God bless you and help you to heal. No, I wouldn't want to go back to that dr like EVER! I'm going to click on your FB link as ask you to be my friend on there. Basically, I use it to see what's going on with family and friends that I don't see or talk to much.

    xoxoxo

  6. Hi and glad to see you are still around - somewhere. Missed you very much. Know that I think of you often and care. Sorry you're having such a difficult time. I'll try to keep in touch so you can count on being pestered once in a while. You really should try to keep in some sort of contact with the outside world, you know. It would distract you from your pain a bit, I think. Facebook may be the first step. Carry on! Hugs!

  7. If at first you don't get satisfaction you go to a second opinion.. If you think he has HARMED you and you are in PAIN..you should at least seek someone ...anyone...who will listen to you. There is no excuse for having to live in pain because of someone else's neglect. NEVER give UP as Nancy says.... keep on keepin on.. we hear ya... GLAD you are with us on FB we love it there too.
