Life Ain't Always A Hootenanny

I've been away from my blog for a while. Either poop just happens or if you believe in Karma, I was a really bad person in a former life. I will know in September if I will celebrate with a hoe down or be facing a show down.

I had a little cough for a while, was told it was viral on July 26th, to stay home the next day, a Friday, and rest. I recently returned to work, this week and Friends, I thought I was gonna die!

The cherry on top you ask? Well there's whip cream to look forward to also. Cherry first. My own daughter robbed my house the week I was in the hospital! She is a topic for another blog. I came home to a messier house than I left, almost impossible but true.

The whipped cream? Although the diagnosis is pneumonia, an abnormal CT scan has led me to a terrifying wait for a follow up CT scan. I am a breast cancer survivor of 7 years. NO cancer survivor wants to hear, "There's just too much fluid to tell if there is a mass in that lower left lobe. Although you clearly have pneumonia, see your oncologist for another CT to see if a cancer spread." WHAT the POOP!

I patiently waited for my lungs to heal (did you know it takes up to 6 weeks?) then had the follow up CT, not to worry. I will be here for a while longer, unless I get his by a bus or a tree falls on me.

I haven't been on line much at all, was just too sick. I have a friend who told me I am now an official member of the Ass Wipers Club (older women who help each other when in need). Everyone should have such a club. They took such good care of me.

As for my my criminal of a daughter? She is not allowed back to my home and I have stopped contact, again! This has been going on over 20 years and why I am raising a 10 year old at my age. I plan to do a blog in the future, addressing life with a meth addicted child. Maybe call it Crystal Falls. What do you think I should call it?

Thanks to my friends who checked my blog during my long respite. I hate to be real here in the present, it's so much easier to live in younger past with Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Sky King and Howdy Doody! Signing off for now folks but I will be back!


  1. Well. I've been watching and waiting, even worrying a little, and am glad to see you back, hoping you'll stay for a very long while. It's a little shocking to read what you've been dealing with, and of course I don't have words to change anything for you, but for what it's worth, I'm caring across space. Also happy that your ten-year-old grandchild has you for a parent and is not floundering around in the system. And Karma? Meh...not so much.

    1. I like the idea that Karma is not paying me back for my past sins, I was a teenager in 60's! Thanks Penny

  2. Glad your ok. Glad to see you writing again. It can be difficult with kids. I didn't have them, so I can't explain them. Glad to hear you'll be around for a while.

    1. Oh Bobby, thank you for stopping by, it is good to know I was not forgotten and happy to read others are are glad I will be around. I'm back at work and happy to back to blog. I can't wait to catch up on everyones activities while I was away. T
