~ Tired ~


First, let me say my nose surgery on Wed. went well.  I have a follow up on Tuesday and I hope at that time he will remove the tubes in my nostrils and the sinus pressure will be releaved.  My ribs feel good.  My arm... :::sigh::: not so great.  I can finally see my knuckles as the swelling there has gone down.  My forearm is still a bit puffy and black and blue.  I will be in the air cast for a few more weeks, and I know it's better then having surgery and a plate put in, but this sucks.  My arm has no mobility and I have a few sores from the pressure points and the little rubbing which cannot be helped.  I called the Dr. with my concerns but so far status qou.  The cast stays on.  Working one handed sucks big time!  My new employer has been great.  Virtually no questions asked, and I go back tomorrow.

BUT.... I'm tired!

Tired of putting on the happy face........
of having folks tell me how strong I am when I'm a whimp and tired of it all.

Tired of having to have constant help
washing my hair.... taking a shower...
Thank God I can wipe my own ass!!!

I'm tired of being sick
of being tired

For the past 10 months my life has drastically changed and been in turmoil.  I finally had things going my way... and poof.  WTF!?!?   Can I get back to my old life now????

I know folks have it worse... I feel bad for whining... for feeling sorry for myself....

~ OOppps ~

Short and sweet, typing one handed....since the cat is out of the bag... sort if... Nancy touched on it briefly on her blog. I'll fill you in. Most know I have diabetic neuropathy in my left foot and minimal movement in the left ankle. I've been a bit confident and/...or cocky when walking. The other night I lost my balance. I tried to catch myself and failed miserably. I have a humerus fracture (bone between shoulder and elbow), a broken rib, and my face is busted up. Will need surgery on my nose when the swelling goes down (7-10 days). The arm is the most painful... and it is not humorous.. ok bad joke! I'll be fine in a few days. Really embarrassed tho.

Tag requests will be sent out... I just need a few days. Did get requests with no email so they have been deleted from my in box, as I can't hunt you down. If it's you, request again with name..which tag and an email and I will get them out ASAP. Please put it on correct entry or it will be deleted.  I will extend the expiration until 9/16 but after that I'm sorry your loss. You'll need to watch going forward. Thanks for understanding.

~ Terrible Blogger... Horrible Friend ~

OMG!  That title is so true.  I have a million excuses.  I hate the way blogger uses graphics, or how the animation is always distorted.  The way it freezes up while I'm in google reader regardless of what browser I'm using.  How comments never go through unless I try a gazillion times.  How I just haven't been able to get into it since I went through all my shit.  I've been playing way too much in Facebook because it's faster, easier, and most of the time more user friendly.  EXCUSES!   I suck!  I am so sorry....  really I am.  I do care about you...  believe or don't......
I've actually been doing good.  Great really.  Yeah I got laid off from my job of 17 years.  I never cried, never got mad.  Felt nothing really.  I've had a blast.  Summer arrived for a few weeks and I enjoyed the time like you would not believe.  I decided after a couple weeks I should buckle down and job hunt.  I started the job hunt by shopping.  LMAO!   Well....  I needed clothes to wear on the interviews, ya know?   That in itself was so much fun.  Shopping off the racks and rarely needing to try things on.  Good Gaawd I love it!!
I sent out a few resumes.  Then it happened.  I was contacted by a few companies. 
I won't go into too much information, but I had an interview and it felt good.  I thought I'd be nervous, but I wasn't.  It was very natural.  I must have done something right because they called me back the next day to come back.  I did and wow!  An offer was made.  I counter and it all worked out.  I am making more then I did before.  I'm still in sales and the bonus/commission structure is wonderful.  I am confident it won't be long and I will be on the right path.  The $$$ path.  LOL   So, yeap, I accepted and start on Wed.  I'm so excited.
So there you have it.  I am hoping to get into a routine and get back on the blogger path.  I hope you'll all forgive me and work with me to get things back on track.  I've missed you all!
