And Now For The Bad News...

Well some of you know from reading yesterday that I've pulled something in my back working wood a couple of days ago and I was flat ON my 'back' yesterday and just couldn't hardly maneuver even with help from the geezer.  He was a prince beyond measure as he saw to me and tried to help me.

I couldn't get down and when I'd finally get down after wallowing every which way but the right way...I couldn't get up.  By 7pm last night...tears were streaming and I just couldn't help it...and GADS I hate to be like a whiny wimp...I've always said I was one of the strongest German Indian wives on the planet..I like to think of myself as a work horse with a strong warm and fuzzy touch but an unorganized mind...hahahahaha and I'd sure leave off that unorganized mind if I could.

It had already started on Thursday..I got up with the problem after working wood on Wednesday.  But it just kept getting worse and worse.  Kim and I were going to take a couple hours and go junking while Billy was gone to geezer breakfast, but I called her and at first I said I just couldn't do anything it was too hard to get around...THEN I called her back and I said, "We have so little time these days, let's go out to Huddle House and have breakfast and gab and we'll junk another day."  So that's what we did..but after setting and talking in the booth for an hour and a half...I couldn't hardly get up and walk.

I came straight home and did a few things and hit the love seat and the heating pad.  Later that evening, Billy said, 'Well you're going to have to try to get yourself lined out because I was going to surprise you for our anniversary and we were heading to Florida on Monday morning for a few days."  WHAT????? IS THIS A JOKE?????? BECAUSE IT'S A VERY CRUEL ONE!!!!!  I've been wanting us to get away alone for AGES and here I was about to get my wish and now I can't set...I can't walk...I can't get up and down....THIS IS JUST MY LUCK!!!!!!!!!  FOR THE LOVE OF PETE!!!!!!!!!!!

Now he says we can still go when we can work it out...but someone close ...in the family...is having major surgery in a week and a half and we sure want to be around for that...so now it's going to be a while...but AT LEAST he's thinking more like ME...AND FINALLY....hahahahahahaha

And listen...I'm throwing in the towel on monthly updates and charts on trying to be my best me in 2013...and especially Anonymous won't be surprised at that.....Now I'm STILL going to improve in every way I can...and I'll give you updates now and then...But I think by making such a big deal of it...I've opened the door to some bad Chi or something....GOODNESS...it's been one thing and then another and we're just not used to being sick AT ALL...EVER.....And I was dizzy for weeks and couldn't walk a straight line and then the geezer got the flu and was sick for 3 weeks and now this thing with my back....SO I'm going to continue to do all the good I can .. in all the ways I can...and improve all I can in every way....but I'm going to do it quietly...with periodic updates..

One of the things Anonymous harped on in their nasty email yesterday...was Hanna The Hoarder..and she says I'm making that whole thing up...that I'm NOT in contact with her...But listen...I get letters from Hanna several times a month AND I write her back....I just got a letter from her last week and I called Kim and told her about it...I think that even though Hanna is in contact with other folks on occasion...I just don't think she's had friends that are as giggly and show unconditional acceptance like Kim and I did with her.  Every time we've gone up there...we've taken her covered dish meals and groceries and we talk about just 'this and that' like women like to talk about...not just her problems....and I just think that Hanna sees a real friend in us and it gives her a glimpse of being a 'real person'....and I don't mean that in a snooty way....but I think that's true....I think most people look down on Hanna and she feels that...so it's just different when Kim and I go visit her...

Hanna has some real problems going on...and she's panicked....She's having trouble with Richard and it isn't lookin' good...So she's wanting Kim and I to come up and pick her up and go to the Dairy Queen where we can set and talk without Richard being around....SOOOO...I WANT to do that for her...but I'm REALLY leery of Richard....When we've been around him...he SEEMS to worship her and he's so jolly and funny....but there's just something not right with that picture...and remember he HAS been in prison for 12 years..right up to the week he married Hanna...and he TOLD me ...he had a hole dug in his back yard big enough to bury my car in and nobody would ever find it...   :-0   SOOOOOOOOOOOOO If I TURN UP MISSING....CHECK THEIR BACK YARD...   :-/   I'll keep you posted....but yes...Kim and I are true and loyal friends of Hanna the Hoarder...She has emotional problems...but this isn't a perfect world and we are not all perfect people....including me....AND she can't HELP that....The Hanna that Kim and I see...is a sweet and jolly old woman that's had a really REALLY hard life...and we just love her to pieces...

Real quick and then I've got to get out of this chair....my back is much better this morning...but it's hurting just to set here and type.... But I wanted to touch on a problem a friend is having on facebook.
She posted yesterday morning that she was in the hospital night before last ..waiting to have major surgery yesterday morning and found her husband online at 1am...at a bad website he shouldn't be on....I'm telling you...I felt SO SO sorry for her...She was scared to death to have this surgery anyway...and now not to even have support from her husband...

Let me just tell you something folks...I'm not a rocket scientist...but this is just a fact.  You hear of these men being unfaithful and this and that and doing things they shouldn't do..even flirting and other things....and then someone will say "Well boys will be boys!"  Well yes, that's true...but BOYS are in their TEENS!!!  And when a man reaches maturity...he's supposed to ACT like a MAN and there is NO ROOM in the life of a real man for filth...and I don't care WHO you are!!!   Her post  just made me furious...

What have I said SO SO SOOOOOOOOO many times....the real worth of a man is determined by what he is like...when no one is LOOKING...ANYbody can act nice...but it's what a person will do when they think they're totally alone...that really tells what they are......This just absolutely made me SICK for her...Some men are just not worth picking up and throwing off the Brooklyn Bridge...

Ok...my back is giving me a fit and I've got to get out of this chair and back on the heating pad....I'll talk to you tomorrow...and tomorrow will probably be my mustard seed miracle story, because tomorrow is our 46th anniversary....

Peace and love from the canyon and I love you all gobs ....thanks SO SO much...for stopping by...this has been a bird's eye view of the world of the katydid and until next time...you are loved...


This is what I WON'T be seeing in person Monday night...but at least I know now...I'll be there soon...thank you Lord, for my old geezer and for all your many blessings on meeeeeeeeeeeee
