It’s Been a While…

Hey folks sorry for my absence.  But it’s been one of those months,  a knock down drag out no holds barred assault on our family and my body.

First of all the family, Darlene, my partner has lost a beloved auntie.  I wish I could say she went well but I really can’t, cancer is one of those afflictions that can take a life away slowly and in the most horrid ways.

So we have been dealing with that,  also I buggered my leg up again.   Twisted and turned it to the point that I’ve been off of work for the last two weeks.  Don’t worry bout me I am all braced up and on the mend but it’s been a hell of a struggle.

I am more going out of my mind with boredom than anything else, yes it’s been nice to sleep in but not talking to anyone for most of any given day can take a toll on one’s psyche.  Just me and the T.V. BORING.

So today I managed to limp into the basement and send out the SOS just so you all know I am alive.

I thank you in advance for any condolences you have for Darlene and her family they are appreciated.  Losing a family member is hard, but it’s even harder when you have so many good memories of laughter and love.

I will try to get back to my writing as soon as I am able.

Love you all.

  2. Thanks for the Love, It’s hard when I can’t be everywhere she was. Pulling over nights in the hospital bedside. But I did do my part driving family in the city, most of them are country folk and parked at our house to avoid hospital parking fees!

    Thanks again love ya’ll lots

  3. I am sorry to hear about your loss.
    I hope your leg feels better soon. Boredom indeed can drive one crazy.
    You need a hobby that involves your hands!

    Feel better soon!

  4. Sorry to hear about your family’s loss. Cancer sucks in so so many ways. Hope the knee will come alive soon so that you can go out and explore winnipeg soon.

    • Thanks Rincewind, the funeral is today and I have a couple of light duty posts planned for the page.

      One that will delight, Nikki on my adventures in composting and another installment in “What the #@(* is that” series of Winnipeg public art.

      So stay tuned in!

  5. So sorry to hear about your family’s loss. Hope you and your leg and your mind feel better soon…. there is nothing worse than being bored. Hope things will look up soon! Hugs

    • The funeral was actually very uplifting, Auntie G was part of a very spirited church community. It was like being transported to the deep south of the United States. Lots of music and hand clapping!

      I could have almost done a concert review!!

      Thanks for the love and support.
      Huggs right back at cha’

  6. I wondered where you were!

    Again, I am so sorry to hear about your loss – I can only imagine what that was like. I hope you and Darlene are healing. Take care of that leg!
