My goodness! I just looked at the date of my last post....

Hello out there! Anyone still here? I can't believe the last time I posted was October of 2019 and we are now into January of 2020. Where does the time go?

In all seriousness, I did want to stop in and say hello, let you know what's been happening with me and why I've been away so long and tell you what I'd like to do this year.

So where have I been? Busy, sick, busy.. You know how it goes. Actually, I've been too busy in too many ways. October and November were crazy busy because my Mr. has had a spinal cord stimulator implanted in his spine. He had the first surgery the last week of September for the trial implant and then a week later which was the first week of October he had the permanent surgery. There was a lot of healing, a lot of helping I needed to do and lots of doctor appointments. Truthfully, by the time my day was done I was just too tired to write. 

Healing and helping my husband took up pretty much all of October and November. And my Mr got sick towards the end of November with some kind of stomach bug. Yeah, it wasn't pretty. Then there was Thanksgiving, yes I cooked and of course then Christmas was coming. I was working my fingers to the bone creating crochet gifts for family.

Two days after Christmas I got sick. Boy, did I get sick! It began with the flu which I am almost positive was Type B. I did not get tested but I knew it was the flu as I've had it before but this time it was exceptionally brutal. A day or so after I got the flu I also got Bronchitis and a Sinus infection. Merry Christmas!

I can honestly say I do not remember ever being that sick since the early 1990's when I contracted Lyme Disease and two other tick infections. It would be an understatement to say I was afraid for my life. I ran fever close to 103, my brain felt like it was in a frying pan. More than likely I should have been in the hospital but I was unsure which was the lesser of two evils. Staying home or being admitted. There are so many cases of this flu here with secondary and third infections in my area, something in my gut kept telling me to stay home. 

I was in bed for thirteen days before I could get up on my feet for any length of time which was approximately an hour before I had to lay down again. My Mr took very good care of me but unfortunately he began to get sick a few days before New Years. I am very grateful he did not get the flu but he did get an upper respiratory infection along with the sinus infection. We are both still on antibiotics, round two for both of us but we are on the mend thanks be to God. I still have my cough though and it doesn't seem to want to go away. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow morning so I guess I"ll learn more then. 

As you can see it's been a busy few months. As for what I'd like to do,  I want to seriously revamp my blog and also get very serious about posting a few times a week. Blogging used to be like therapy for me. I found it very peaceful and right now I can use all the peace I can grab onto. I will write more about that at a later time.

So that's it folks. That's where I've been and where I'd like to go. I want to thank all of you who stuck with me through my blog dry spell and I hope you'll continue to come visit me. 


  1. Glad you're out there Robbie, nice blog site!

  2. So happy you are back. Both Hubs and I got sick before Christmas, me much worse than him.

    1. Same thing here.. Still fighting the chest congestion. I hope you're both better now!
