Absent Without Leave, No Excuses

Yes, that would be me…

Well, maybe just an excuse or two.

I will try to catch you up.

First off, to get it out of the way, the insurance company denied my surgery, so I have decided to take the summer (because, REALLY? who wants to NOT swim for six weeks when there’s a pool right off the back deck, slam in the middle of the summer) to do it the old fashioned way; I joined a gym. Have lost SIXTEEN pounds already. Yay, me. Now, once I am able to get to my optimum weight by summer’s end? If I am still having back, neck and shoulder issues, I will revisit. However, I am still frustrated as hell at shopping for clothes. The bottom half numbers are dropping like a ton of bricks, but not so much the top half.

Secondly, we have had some family “stuff” going on that I don’t really want to visit on this forum right now, but perhaps at a later date.

Thirdly, I am TRYING like the dickens to get Claire’s book edited. Thought I would be able to pull this off during the day, but I don’t know WHAT happened, the day job has gotten busy.

Those few things said?  I apologize for my not being around. I know it’s bad when Twitter sends me an email telling me they miss me. And on Twitter (like everywhere else) I am a small fish in a HUGE pond.

Now, I know all three of you that are actually reading this know what is going on and I love you guys for sticking by me through thick and thin. You girls know how thick it has been lately, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. (SD, Claire, and Sandra) That said? Pray that there isn’t a freaking train attached to it this time, huh? I’m gonna look like ground chuck (or Jules. LOL) if this keeps up.

I promise I will try to do better at keeping things up. Sometimes life just gets in the way, and I hate that, but it is what it is.

Till next time…

  1. It gets in the way but you’ll adapt and I see you already are!

    AWW! Julie, I am not one of the three but I am so sorry to hear the insurance won’t pay. Isn’t there an appeal you can make? I think there is. Present the proof of the neck pain and if you have xrays showing the neck strain or something like that. I am so sorry to hear that. I care.

    • Girl…not worried about it. Don’t want to miss six week of swimming in the middle of an eastern NC summer. It’s all good…
