~ I wish I had two ~

Photobucket
... not two heads, though some look at me as if I did.  I wish I had two of me.  Totally!   It's been absolutely nuts here and I just don't seem to have the time to do anything any more. 
I've been back to work for a bit now.  It's going great and I really thought I was back into the rutt...    I mean routine.   I guess I'm really not.  Work is fine, it's after that when it goes to hell and I run out of time.  I get home, get dinner, eat, clean up, go for my walk.  It's not bad.  My ankle/foot cause a little distress about half way through but I push on.   The more I walk the more the drop foot is prominent and the limp follows suit.  My hips ache a little from that weird motion.  Like I said I push through it and then I'm fine.  Well, fine with a very noticeable limp.  I appreciate all the inquiries on how I'm doing.  Remarkably well trust me.
Once I'm home I try to get on the PC, but honestly it feels odd being here.  I try to catch up on entries and generally I'm so far behind I skirt through them and comment very sporadically.  I'm sorry.  I'm rushed for time and I feel guilty if I don't at least read.  Maybe I'm just nosey and I'm afraid of missing something.   That isn't the case, I swear :)  I notice most folks aren't doing entries like they use to.  I can't figure out if it's the switch to blogger or if Facebook has taken over because it's faster and right to the point.  :::shrugging:::  either way it appears blogger has crashed and burned.   You'd think with all that said I'd be able to keep up... so why can't I?
Those of you that know me, know I've been watching the hockey playoffs.  It looks like, unless a miracle happens, that it will be Detroit and Pittsburgh playing for Lord Stanley again this year.  Talk about adding insult to injury.  Boston lost to Carolina in the last round.  Freak goal in OT to say the least.  Now, Carolina is on the verge of being swept (losing 4 games in row).   I know the Boston fans are looking on knowing their team would have at least put up a fight if they couldn't/didn't win the series.  It's about bounces sometimes.
Ya'll know before my last hospital stay I had my hair all cut off.  Nothing like lying in bed for 8+ days and having long dirty hair.  I had it cut again on Saturday.  I want to grow it back out, but it's thick and curly and I don't feel like fighting with it all summer as it has a mind of it's own.  I also had it colored and highlighted.  I'm not sure, but I think I like it.  I'll let it grow come winter.
I also did some shopping on Sunday.  No, I didn't go with Nancy, but I should have.  She hit the jackpot!!   Anyway, I had no choice I had to go.  None of my clothes fit.   The summer clothes I have fall off me and appear so freaking sloppy  I just can't go out like that.  It use to be that I would find something I liked and then be in the dressing room in tears because it didn't come large enough.  Yesterday, well I cried because nothing I liked was small enough.   Who the frig invented low rise?  WTF!?!  I hate 'em and everything seems to be that style.  I will keep my ass crack to myself thank you!  After some time I did find a few things.  When I got home I changed into one of my new outfits.  Shorts and a tank.  As I stood looking at myself I wondered if I looked like an old lady trying to be a young one.   Jean shorts size 6 with a leather braided belt.  Never in my life can I remember buying something that came with a belt and having both fit around my waist.  Did they learn and start making belts a bit larger?   The shorts were much shorter then I've worn in years.  Maybe since I was 20?!?  Not daisy dukes, but short.  The tank was just a tank.  My son stopped over with his girlfriend and I had to ask.  He thought it was fine and that it looked good.  Off to my parents I went.  My brother told me I looked good so I asked him too, 'does it look like I'm an old lady trying to be young?'  He laughed and told me, 'no you look hot.  Well as hot as a sister can be.'   Thanks Tim that made me feel great!!  I wouldn't recommend this diet to anyone.  I'm thrilled but broke!  It's hard to replace an entire wardrobe.  Oh and yes I strutted myself all day... at my parents... with no one there.  LOL   When's the next public picnic? 
I'm off to my parents again today for a little picnic.  Not sure who will be there as most are at the river.  I didn't go because I'm not ready.  All those stairs, packing my meds, needles etc.  Just seemed like too much work.  Maybe next time.  I hope everyone has a great day and you all stay safe!  'Nuff of my babbling
Hugs

It's great to hear from you. Lyn at Brits Blog was just commenting also about the slow death blogger is going through. I like FB...but (really Farmtown) honestly blogging is my favorite. I miss everyone blogging.

I bet you do look great & with the new hairdo.

Enjoy your day!

Sometimes getting 'back to normal' isn't as easy as we think it will be. And the time thing? Well, I don't 'work', but with the horses and volunteer stuff, and just normal day to day I find at the end of the day I feel like I didn't get anything done, and yet I was running around all day... Sigh! Maybe if there were more than 24 hours in a day I might have a shot.

Glad you are feeling better, and isn't it -fun- to go clothes shopping?

I seem to feel like I never have enough time in the day! I don't know what happened to this weekend??? I know that it seems like the people I do follow, don't post as often. I know that I can't start a facebook, I'm never caught up here, so I know I'll always behind over there. I'm here to stay.

So glad things are going fairly well at work and elsewhere...I know what ya mean about not having enough time for anything...

I know at times I take a break from blogging, due to feeling like I don't have time for anything...but Facebook is kinda boring to me...I love Blogger...and I really hope alot of people don't stop blogging...maybe we all have blogged for so long that we just needed a break of sorts...hopefully...eventually Blogger will be booming again...

Hope you have a great day!
Love ya!

Nice to read an entry that sounds like your old self. I do think a lot of bloggers may have been overdoing it, and once they had migrated decided to take time out and see if they really wanted to keep on bloggin'. I think those that do return will have fresh vigor. I am amazed at the changes in you, what you have gone through and how it seems to have strengthened you in many ways. As they say what does not kill us makes us strong. I certainly don't worry when you don't post. You need adjustment time. If you stopped altogether then I would feel concerned. I love your gift with the camera. Gerry

Linda said...

Hi Donna ! How wonderful it is to hear from you & to hear that you're feeling so well!! I, for one, am extremely thrilled to hear your recuperation is moving along ... keep up the GREAT work! I've missed your friendly "voice" and hope to hear from you more often as you feel better and have more free time. Have a safe, relaxing Memorial Day!

Peace~

Penny said...

You're right. We don't seem to be blogging as much these days . . . blogger is ok, but not as user friendly as the J was. I miss it. Going to do a short entry today. I can't wait to see pics of the new you. Highlighted hair, shorts ~ wouldn't want to take your route, but wish I could lose the pounds. You are still and always in my prayers. Love and blessings, Penny

Lisa said...

i can just see you in your new skinny clothes! You go, HOT STUFF....i hate what you have went thru but i KNOW you are beautiful, inside and out.....i miss you when i do not hear from you but i am secure knowing we are forever friends...with or without FB and blogger.
Not everyone online is who they say they are.
I love to see your tags and your photos.....i can imagine that your going back to work has taken quite a bit out of you....i am so happy you are feeling stronger and healthier....don't ever feel bad. Just take each day as it comes and enjoy.
Love always

Jeannette said...

I don't think there's as much time as there used to be! Lol! Life was so slow and easy when we were young. Everything is done at breakneck speed now and still we don't have time to stop and breathe! It must have felt good fitting into those clothes, I could never wear anything above the ankle. I'm glad you're managing to keep up the walking, it's a slow process but it will improve your circulation and help a lot. I hope you enjoyed the weekend Donna. Jeannette xxxx

ADB said...

Hi Donna,
It is quite noticeable that people are blogging less - I can't really get into Facebook, takes too much time. Isn't it annoying how they keep downsizing clothes, I mean, how can a size that fitted 10 years ago suddenly NOT fit anymore, shouldn't be allowed lol

FLORIDALADY4U said...

Great to hear for you Donna ..you have been in my thoughts and prayers.

Hugs Mari

LYN said...

HEY YOU OVER THERE.. YEA YOU THE SKINNY BITCH!! LOL..HELL GIRL AT LEAST ONE GOOD THING CAME OUT OF ALL YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH...I BET YOU ARE HOT TOO...ENJOY YOUR SEXY NEW SELF AND POST A PIC AND MAKE ME JEALOUS WOULD YA??

Teresa said...

I agree with what Lyn said LOL ~ I love LYN!! She's so to the point lol.
Yes, it is STILL strange being on Blogger ~ I miss the journals...I miss how I could lay out my journal the way I pretty much wanted to with graphic etc. you know how I am about those things. If you wanted to use a larger pic you could, smaller was ok too! You didn't have to worry is this gonna fit or things like that as badly.
About getting new clothes? I know how you feel - I've put on so much weight that I don't even like going in the clothing sections anymore because I get so depressed about it "nothing is going to fit so why the hell even bother" attitude you know? You will adjust eventually, you've been through so many changes physically, mentally and spiritually that it can be so very overwhelming. It will get better. Love and Hugs, Teresa

Teresa said...

P.S. I STILL don't know any more about Hockey than I did when we first "met" ROFL !!!!! ((((Hugglez)))) Teresa

Lori said...

Glad you're doing well and that you're getting back into the swing at work. I think everyone is just extremely busy and stressed these days. I post sporadically, and I dread and comment sporadically, but I do appreciate that my buddies are still posting whenever they can. I like checking in and catching up. I just have to learn not to stress out about it!
