Okay, so. I haven’t been around in a while and I kind of feel like I owe you guys an explanation for that.
This year has been pretty crap-tastic so far what with my MIL’s cancer and my knee surgery. There have been moments of pure awesome that I have thoroughly enjoyed thrown in there too but crap-tastic ruled there for a little bit.
This is a blog about my life and things that happen to me that I choose to share. I felt like at the beginning of the year ALL I was blogging about was my MIL’s cancer. This AIN’T my MIL’s Cancer Blog. She is more than welcome to blog/write about her cancer if she so chooses but I didn’t want to turn my blog into that. Also, her cancer brought some underlying problems with TWH’s fambly to the forefront and I was very angry for a while. I didn’t write about my anger here because A) These were not MY issues to share and B) There are some folks in TWH’s fambly that I adore and I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings with my angry rantings. So I stepped away. I didn’t put that here.
I hurt my knee in Zumba class & had to have that shit surgically repaired. Because I’m either extra-awesome in the Klutz Department or I’m too spastic to be believed I managed to tear my ACL & Meniscus OFF which resulted in surgery. Again, I was little pissed off and full of self pity. I talked about it on here but again, I didn’t write about it extensively because A) How much shit can I say about my bum knee. Really?? and B) I didn’t want to be one of those people who whine incessantly about my life to whomever will listen. I deal with those folks on the daily at work and I never have jack-shit to say to them. Not because I lack sympathy but because I have NO IDEA what to say. Honestly. I detest cliches and am never able to come up with something that sounds sympathetic but DOESN’T sound trite or contrived. So I stepped away. I didn’t put that here either.
There ARE some awesome things that have happened over the last few months. In March, I attended the SPQ weekend in Jackson, MS where I got my neck hugged by and got to hug the necks of so many people who are dear to me. I got to see Miss A march in the Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington, DC in April. We also got to spend a LOT of time together during my recovery. Time that we generally spent acting goofy and laughing at our own awful jokes while TB & TWH cringed. I got to watch TB make me breakfast & see what a wonderful, caring young man he has become. I got absolutely spoiled by TWH. My cousin Ainsley sent me the GREATEST SOCK MONKEY SOCKS EVER. Not to mention upcoming trips I have planned with friends and Fambly. I have high hopes for the remaining months of this year. I hope that they will be filled with more laughter, love and new wonderful memories.
THOSE are things I will tell you about. I’m gonna try to come back from the void. To write more. To share more. Hopefully, to make you laugh more.
I’ve been away for far too long.
