Hello again!

Hello all, you know there are days when it really doesn't pay to get out of bed. I think since the beginning of the year that has been my life. I've been writing my little brains out, and then got sidelined by an unforeseen surgery. Learned I had a problem on a Monday and was in surgery on a Tuesday.

Sigh, apparently someone must have thought I was having a slow week/month when this was dumped in my lap. I certainly wasn't ready for it, nor did I want it. My body looks like a cross country road map of bumps, lines and such as it is from the 8 surgeries I've had in the past 3 years alone.

But the upside is the restrictions that came along with the surgery are no lifting more than a milk jug till May 1st. Which lets out carrying the laundry basket down three flights of stairs, pushing or pulling or lugging the vacuum up and down those same three flights of stairs. It gives me the chance to heal. And write.

Ah yes writing. I have made a dent but not as big of a dent as i would have liked. What someone forgot to tell me is I'd lose a week right after surgery with just trying to figure how to get in and out of bed. That your abdominal muscles are used for pretty much everything, including the dreaded sneezing and coughing. Oh yes dear readers that alone was a treat and and among itself! (G)

Yet, I persevere and onward and forward. So forgive me for being so silent, but I am once again back in the saddle and ready to rumble. Take care all and have a great weekend!
