Where I've Been

1. Under anesthesia
2. Wrangling little boys
3. Church (I know, sit me down and call me Susie)
4. Fighting with my "rechargeable" batteries.
5. Wondering if I should continue this blog.

You see, I don't think anyone is reading it. Well, seven people did last week. So, for you seven that keep coming back (mom, Meredith, Judy, who else is there???), thanks.

I'm even considering dropping Twitter and Facebook. Am I becoming a hermit?

Maybe it is just the past couple weeks bringing me down about computer time. I had a very bad virus that attacked my computer registry, so even if I deleted it all, as soon as I start up fresh, it's back. Hiding in the registry. It's a pesky little one.

The nose surgery went well. I had no bruising or swelling. It was, however, the most uncomfortable week of all time. It's hard to be 'sick' when you don't look sick. I was pretty tired and did a lot of sleeping the first 4 days, then I had to get moving. I had boys to entertain. Even now, two weeks after the surgery, I'm still sniffling, snorting, snoring, trying to clear my nose of all unwanted objects and trying to learn how to keep my mouth shut. For 38 years, I have had my mouth open 95% of the day. This wasn't the quick fix. But, I'm learning. Maybe I'll crochet a chin band that goes over my head and chin - like a front headband - to keep my mouth closed at night. It is really a difficult thing, I never realized how much my mouth is open. But good news, my nose trick is safe. I can still blink and my nostril moves. Thank goodness for the little things!

Finished the goat purses, what a labor of love for those two. They were challenging and rewarding at the same time. Today, they should arrive at their new home in Texas. I hope they are welcomed with open arms and filled with wallets and phones and tissues and maybe a carrot or two.

Let me know if you are out there...it's lonely inside this box.

I'm still reading too! All I say is...do what you can...whenever you want to...It'll all be a bonus.

Hi...a) keep writing, we are reading, and enjoying! But if it becomes more of a task than a treat, then reconsider. BUT, I did laugh about your comment on the chin guard b/c I just saw a commercial from an old Ally McBeal episode where Jane Krakowski (now on 30 Rock) wanted to create a "face bra". Funny thoughts.
