Raggedy Update

A quote for my blog family

They... threw themselves into the interests of the rest, but each plowed his or her own furrow. Their thoughts, their little passions and hopes and desires, all ran along separate lines. Family life is like this - animated, but collateral.
~Rose Macaulay

I want to thank you for your comments over the past week. They meant a great deal to me. I appreciate each and every one of them. Thanks to all of you who sent email.

I am taking a moment to express my gratitude to the guest posters for lifting my spirits and making me laugh. Y’all are good medicine.

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.~G.K. Chesterton

My son printed out my blog pages every day.
I tried to get him to go down the list on my side bar and print the pages from all my links but he gave me “the Look” and the “eye roll” and started talking real fast about all these things he had to be doing…

Thank you Hoss and Peter!

Grizz FTS it was great to see your post too!

I did manage to sneak down in great pain to send a few emails.
If you don’t blog I guess it is hard to understand.
I got busted with that panda post and spewed my morning coffee with laughter.

I wubs you Hoss!

Hubby doesn’t read my blog but he did gander at the page our son brought up.
Probably because he wanted to see what was making me laugh so hard.
I got the folded arms and stern face.
"You got up to send a mail? What is wrong with you?"
"I miss my blog buddies?"
(*pout,*sniffles, reached for a tissue)
"They needed an update?"
(*raised my eyebrows)
"If we had a lap top?"
(*fluffed hair, winked, showed some leg)
It didn’t work…not even a smile...*sigh
He is on the computer but my blog doesn’t hold much interest for him.

I am going to be on recovery road for awhile longer.
I feel wonderful today because this is my second day without a headache.
Those were not your ordinary headaches they were headaches from...oh nm
The only thing I could do was lay down and then the spinal fluid would be in balance and the headache would be gone.
Not very convenient but the only thing to do.
My nerves and knees are another story but I am not going to complain about them...
nope... nope… nope...
It took quite some doing to make this post presentable.
Even the spell check can’t figure out my typos!
So I am not going to struggle with posting for a bit.
I am officially off of the bed rest orders!
*does a happy cat dance

I am amazed how tired I am though.
How can a person be tired after all that rest?

I have a lot of catching up to do here but I have to take it slow.

Find the carpet, find the sink, and I am sure the laundry baskets are hiding somewhere under those piles of clothes.

I lost some words three days ago that I still can’t find.
They used to come back but now they are not.
I will be mid sentence and I know the persons name, place, or object that I am wanting to say and whoosh it did not make it to my tongue and that word is history.
The same thing happens when writing I will be mid keystroke and I know the word I want to type but it is gone..gone..gone..
I wonder where lost words go.
Maybe the same place as lost socks.

My goal is to be back by the 23rd because the dern doctors are gonna be messing with me again on the 19th…

I found this nifty little flowchart I thought you might enjoy.

Huggles and Love y'all bunches… Miss you too!

Hi Raggedy, it is soooo good to see you posting. Be careful!
Spell checkers are dumb, I put things together (your comments too) fine, maybe because I'm slightly dislectic. It really helps with the Jumble.
My thanks to Hoss and Peter also for filling in, let them report some more while you rest.

I'm glad Jaycee liked the Adi Picture. She must be Teddy's best buddy.
I'll try to put up more Adi pictures, tell her thanks for liking her.
Best wishes and prayers are here for your continued treatment and recovery.

Hi sweetie...good to "hear" your voice again! I had spinal headaches once after having a spinal tap procedure and my heart goes out to you...I know how bad they are. Glad to hear that yours has gotten better. You take care of yourself and tell hubby that *I* said that a laptop for his lovely wife would be a very good investment ;~)

Love & hugs!

Sounds like you are making good progress. I love that flow chart -so much truth in it.
I don't lose words but I sure get stuck on them. You're typing alng and all the sudden go to halt because you can't remember how to spell a word. And it always seems like they are simple words.

My hubby doesn't care for this whole blog thing either. He has kind of warmed up to the fact that I'm hooked on blogging though, but he doesn't like for me to talk much about him or post his pictures. I rarely post a pic of him.

I am so sorry you've been suffering with such awful headaches. I'm sure you feel so great when the headaches are gone. Get well soon, and take it easy.
Your blog buddies are loyal through sickness and health, so don't worry. We will still be here!!!
I wish you all the best, and I hope your health is fully restored. You are a very dear person.

Thanks for stopping by the other day for a visit. I know it must have been difficult. I like to do the cryptoquote in the newspaper, so I'm good sometimes at guessing words with a few clues. We bloggers are a curious group. (since you're from my neck of the woods you know I mean odd) We just have to go about our blogging business. Sometimes that means writing and publishing, sometimes that means just stopping by for a visit. That's just who we are.

I've been real busy lately, but I've been thinking about you, checking on you when I could. Hang in there. You deserve the best, and I wish it for you. We love you, Rags.

Many more good healing vibes coming your way. My old man doesn't get my "friendships and dedication" to my blog either. Keep showing leg sweetie, eventually all men cave to that. You could be laptoppin' from bed in a couple of hours. LOL!

I am so glad that you feel a little better and could even blog ! How I can understand you I would also miss blogging very much ! Even during my roundtrip through Turkey in the evenings it itched in my fingers !
Mr. Gattino also never reads my blogs and can hardly understand what it is so important about !
Take it easy and take good care of yourself ! And that every day it gets a little better !

Just to add, but SOME female spouses aren't real warm to the other blogging either.
Mrs. Jim reads mine in spurts to make sure I don't embarass her if her friends see it.
She doesn't like the time I spend doing blogging, I don't like the time she spends on Bridge and Spider Solitare, so we are even. She doesn't think we are even, but we are.

It's so good to hear you're up and about, if only a little bit at a time. I know you'll take care of yourself and it sounds like you've got fine folks takin' good care of you. You're still in my thoughts and prayers. (Loved the flow chart!:)
