I have missed blogging so much. I have developed a habit of posting each day. Sometimes a good post and many times just a so so...just rattling off things in my head. Even if the post sounds boring to me...I post it anyway thinking that maybe someone will stop here and get some little pleasure out of what I have written.
Joe had surgery on the 6th of the month and I was busier than a one armed paper hanger (so they say) I couldn't keep up with all my responsibilities here at home and still blog. So...I took a break. I would pass the computer room many times during the days and nights. I looked in and saw my computer just waiting for me. I found that I missed it so much. At first my computer had a virus, but that was taken care of by a phone call between my son and myself. Now I could blog again, but I decided to take some more time and deal with things here at home. Joe had a lot of problems at first. We were both so tired and cranky with each other. Sometimes I wanted to just come here and get it off my chest, but I didn't. We got through it and now he's so much better. His back is healing and he can get around using a cane. He isn't known for his patience and this is really a test for him. He hates being cooped up and goes from bed to chair to porch. It has been so terribly hot, that we have spent little time on the porch. He loves to eat...remember all those meals I put in the freezer??? Couldn't use them. He had to stay on a liquid diet at first here at home. So here he was starving, cooped up with a wife (who behaves like a know-it-all nurse) hurting so bad, just gave up cigarettes, and feeling like crap it's been hard for him. Today is his best day yet and now I think he's over the hump.
I want to thank you all for your wonderful comments and all the prayers and encouragement. We both benefited from it. I did get out in the yard yesterday and snapped a few pictures of my lilies. I know they are the same as everyone else's, but they are special to me...a treat for someone who needs a treat right now. I'll be here everyday now with my good and not so good posts. I hope you all will come back to visit.
