I'm Sorry and Life Updates

 

Hello friends and family! I wanted to begin this post by saying I am sorry in advance. What am I apologizing for? Because I've had to do something on my blog I really never wanted too. 

I've had to add the "captcha" to my comment section. What does that mean for you? Well, each time you leave a comment you'll have to check a box so it shows you're not a spam bot and, I'm sorry for having to add this but it seems I had a spammer come to my blog and leave a massive amount of spam comments all over many, many posts on my blog which took me some time to delete.

Time I don't have to waste doing that!. So in order to stop that I added the Captcha in hopes that will stop anymore spammers. 

Now that, that is out of the way let's move on shall we?

I know it's been a hot minute since I posted but I had some family come in out of town and it was shall we say, a 'rough week'.. I still think it was the vacation that shouldn't have happened and know I say that with love. Things just didn't go, 'right'..

 

My family members arrived on Wednesday morning. We spent most of the morning and evening together. On Thursday my husband and I were not feeling well. I already knew what it was and also knew it would require a doctor visit. I'm so thankful for Telemedicine these days. So we both had our televisits and we both had raging sinus infections. We were both put on antibiotics and rest. That took us out of action Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 

Sunday evening I was on my way down to the condo my family was staying in when I got a phone call telling me my nephew and his girlfriend just got back (they had been on a fishing boat all day) and they were both burnt to a crisp and my nephew was sick as a dog from the boat and went to bed. So, that took out Sunday Night. 

On Monday, my nephew calls me all upset, his air conditioner went in his SUV and he has some kind of a massive Chevy SUV and he had to find a dealer to take it too. Well, that took ALL day. At the same time, one family member lost another family members debit card so an argument ensued and no one was speaking to each other and there was no way I was walking into that!. So, that killed Monday.

Finally, we spent time together on Tuesday and on Wednesday and they left to begin their long drive home late Wednesday night. So yeah, it was just the vacation that never should have happened but I am grateful for the time we did get to spend together. You may be wondering why I haven't shared any photos and as much as I'd like to I do not want to put my nephews photo up because he is a police officer in a dangerous, popular inner city and the others aren't really wanting to have their photos on the internet so I must respect that. 

There are some other things going on in our lives but this post is long enough and if you've read the whole thing I thank you and I will post more tomorrow..

  1. Blessings to you! I've not done the telemedicine visit yet. Some of the stuff I'm doing due to pandemic has taken an adjustment. Glad you are feeling better. Sometimes we learn as we go along. I use the sign in thingie as well. It may take a little longer to sign in, but I didn't want the extra comments from spam. I understand. Take care,

  2. It's been a crazy week here too. That's why my Sunday Blog is still up. My what a crazy schedule you have had to deal with on top of now feeling well.
    I've gotten a few of those nasty spam comments on my blog too. Hopefully this will correct that for you. Have a good "rest of the week".

    1. Hi Wanda!
      Isn't it funny how people think if you're disabled and can't work or retired, they believe that your life is SO relaxed because gee, 'what do you really have to do?".... Good gosh! Our lives are busier since my husband retired than when he worked three jobs! LOL....I hope all is well with you :) XO

  5. Oh I hope you both get to feeling better. Sinus Infections are no fun!
    I had to add captcha to my blog too. I have mine set to work only on comments that are on post older than a month. That helps a lot because most spam goes to the older post.

    1. Hi Lisa!
      Thank you yes, we are better... I get at least four to five sinus infections per year. For me it's just one of the joys of my RA. I had no idea you could set up the Captcha like that. I'll have to go back and look at better. Thank you for telling me this and stopping by. I hope all is well with you! XO

  6. Gosh, what a shame to have all this happen while your family was visiting. I hope everyone is better by now. At least you got a little time with them before they had to head home. You don't have to apologize for adding spam security to your blog. Here's wishing you a better week. Hugs, Edna B.
