Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Just a series of unfortunate and not so unfortunate events, my friends.
True, I have ‘not’ been on the web at all for over a week. And I’ve greatly missed the fun and friendship. Hearing all the news and interesting things out there and comments from readers and commenting on others writings.
Lets see what was going on here at Deathwatch manor.
There were things like the day without electricity (storm damage) and another few days of a gall bladder attack (chocolate induced) in that time. Also a melt down of my computer, Sims 3 related.
Other things were an unexpected visit from a distant relative and going to a great impromptu birthday party for a friend.
I am dubbing this year, at least for me, ‘The Year of the Physical Trials’.
I broke two toes cleaning out the chest freezer. Dropped a large freezer pack for the big cooler on my foot.
When I’m up and about again I’ll be in the market for a pair of steel tipped boots and a suit of armor. And lets see… mattressing for the floors and I’ll be cleaning out all snack foods from my house too, much to Mountain Man’s distress.
(Don’t you just hate seeing that bag of snack food from your chair and knowing that if you eat it, it could send you to the hospital?)
The weight loss this passed week has been almost nil. I didn’t eat much while I was ill, but I didn’t move much either. And then there was all the chocolate calories I ate at the party that helped start the gall bladder attack in the first place.
(Chocolate I love you, but we very much must part company. You have been an evil master and not treated me with the love and respect I deserve. I‘ll miss you, but I have better things to do in this life than deal with the troubles you bring me.)
So I’m back on the mending trail again. And I’ve made some new friends at the emergency room. I’m a repeat customer you see.
