Well Hello There....I'm Here


Hello there.....

It's been months and months since I've stopped in and I have had some messages wondering where I've been so I thought I'd put up a post telling you just that....It may have to be two posts because it's been so long...

I've actually not really " been anywhere".... I kind of took a long hiatus off Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, my blog, etc..posting once in a while. I became more of an observer than a creator... I've been trying to keep away from it as much as possible, the reason being I guess, the state of the society we now live in is really not something I want to be part of anymore so I have withdrawn basically from the world as much as is possible. I don't watch the news, haven't in years. Things have happened in the world and my husband will say, 'yeah, did you see what happened last night?" and I'm like, 'no.' Heck I didn't even know there was devastating flooding going on in the country until the other day..

I don't watch a lot of TV if any at all and again, haven't in years. Once in a while I will pop on an old black and white film from the 1940's if I'm really in the mood but that's about it. Everything on that little magic dumb box is depressing or pushing an agenda and frankly, I don't make room in my life for either anymore. 

My focus has been on my husband, myself, my animals, my home, my family and friends. And well, that's really it.

I read a lot. I watch some TikTok videos and I've been working on clearing out my house. After twenty years you tend to accumulate a lot of 'stuff' that's just not needed. That's been an ongoing project for quite a while now. Because of my health I can't do a lot at one time so it takes a while. I'm cleaning things out for a few reasons. One, I am sick of stuff. I am tired of walking into a room or going into a closet and seeing the same stuff sitting there for years that I continue to just keep organizing and moving around. It's waste of space, time and energy so I've been donating, selling and trashing a lot and will continue to do so. Two, it's a possibility we may move in a year or so. We are undecided but we have been looking and if we do decide to move it will make things much easier when the time comes.  

As for my health, all I can say is at this point, it is what it is. If you're new here I have been sick for 31 years with chronic immune disorders  and one of the more serious issue's is that I can no longer swallow 99% of solid foods. That has gotten a bit worse over the last six months. I went in for another endoscope last month and they can't find the issue so I have an appointment with a neurologist in October because my doctors as well as myself seem to believe this is a neurological issue. Because of this, I have been surviving on a liquid formula diet now for the last oh, maybe five months. It sucks but it's keeping me alive for now.

As one would imagine a diet like this while it is a balanced diet just in a liquid form, your energy level isn't what it should be and on top of that I've been going through menopause for two years now and that is taking a huge toll on me as well. I am going through it naturally because I can't take hormone replacement so, I struggle through it...and I can tell you, it's not easy...

I think this post is long enough. I have some other things happening that I'd like to tell you about also but I will leave that for another post...

Thank you to all of you who have asked about me and I will put up another post this week to continue. I pray you are all well...


  1. I was also getting more than a bit concerned about you and hoping you were just busy and maybe needed a break. I'm glad you're back and I do understand what you're saying about the state the world is in. I haven't intentionally watched the news for years. Ranee (MN)

    1. Hi Ranee, Thanks for understanding.. There is just so much crap going on no matter where you look, no matter what you hear and I am so mentally exhausted from it all I just had to walk away from everything.....I'm not really on Social Media much still but I am going to try and start keeping up with my blog when I have time. I'm going to put up another post tomorrow about other things I have going on as well which will explain the time thing.. Thank you so much for your concern also, it's nice to know you're thought about :)

  2. Hello from Kansas. Glad you're back!

    1. Hi Deanna and thank you! Also, thank you for taking the time to stick with me. It does mean a lot to me XO

  3. I'm sorry you've been down lately. It's hard not to these days. We have to back away from things that trigger us - especially if it effects our health. Take care.

  4. I have a swallowing problem, too, but not as serious as yours. I have several autoimmune diseases, too. I went through menopause over 30 years ago, and the doctor will no longer give me estrogen, so after hysterectomy and no estrogen, it is like I am going through menopause again or still.


Please leave your comments, I love hearing from you! :)
