One reason I don’t post so much at my blog as I once did – I simply don’t have the time to write the well thought out posts that I once did. But I realised today I need to stop being so.. I’m looking for the right word.. not snobby.. not structured.. maybe controlled is the word I am after.
A blog is a place for me to share my thoughts and I need to do that more. So I will try.
The Other Half went camping this weekend so I was here by myself for two days. The last time he did this I completely threw my sleep schedule out of whack. I wasn’t able to sleep while he was not here and ended up staying up almost till daylight.
What was I worried about? I don’t know. Maybe I read too many murder mysteries or something. But this time I was prepared with Restavit which is an antihistamine that helps me to sleep. To be perfectly honest I needed it for anithistamine reasons as well – the wattle is blooming and I always react to that. The first night I took two and I slept the best I have in a long time. I only needed one the second night.
Since we last talked I have myself been camping. I actually enjoyed it though it could have been called glamping. One of the local campsites has ensuite sites which have a full private bathroom right there for the hirer of the site to use. I could easily do camping if that was how it always was.
What if I forget – this is why I need to write things as they arrive to me, off the cuff, less editing more me. We went to Aldi the other night and the European lady in front of us checked out then went over to the packing area – just after we finished checking out she came back and said to the checkout lady – what price are your lettuces?
The checkout lady said I have no idea, I don’t keep track of the prices of everything. The European lady said “it says here $5. These I will return to you” but she said it in a way I cannot quite remember now. I loved how she said it and when we went off to Coles I said it to the other half exactly that way a bunch of times but for the life of me I can’t remember it anymore.
So you can expect some silly posts to come to you as a surprise in the future. :)

I’m dipping my toes back into blogging. I feel the need to just write things down too.
I haven’t posted on my blog in a little over a year. Mainly because it’s difficult to sit at a desk and write without hip and back pain. I’m also having a rough time at work these last nine months or so, which is affecting my frame of mind. My productivity at work and home has tanked. I also had to apply for a six week extension for an online class I’m taking.
I had spinal fusion in March 2020. It fixed my back pain; however, I then started getting hip pain about three months later. Turns out it’s bursitis in BOTH hips, as well as mild arthritis. I’ve had multiple steroid injections, physical therapy, and saw a chiropractor. Yet here I am, almost 18 months later, and I’m now back with a pain management doctor for prescription pain meds. Over-the-counter pain meds no longer work for me and due to weight loss surgery I can’t take NSAIDs, so prescription pain meds are my only option until I can get it figured out. Oh, and now another part of my back is starting to hurt (above the fused level). I didn’t want to go back to pain meds, but I have a desk job and I need to be able to sit and do my work.
I’d like to get back to the blog, but I don’t even know what I’d write about. I feel like there isn’t much to say unless it’s about health issues.
My advice, just throw the words out there. Don’t be concerned with perfection, just write what you feel.
Blogging with less preparation is more real, I think. I like hearing about people’s day to day activities and feelings.
Blog your heart out! :-) Finally allowing me to comment! It takes so long to put in all the information!
Welcome back! I have been wondering about you, but I know you’ve been busy. Silly posts are fine. It’s just nice to have you back.
Spontaneous and silly posts sound great! It’s good to hear from you.
