An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for Blog Stuff
Apparently, our server is going to be playing games, and upgrading the PHP, whatever that is, so Bluehost blogs will be down this afternoon, and into the evening, most likely. We might have some issues with our templates, and the guru may have to make some massive changes. Then again, maybe not. We shall see.
Just as well they do it today, cuz I’ll be spending my afternoon down in Corinth, visiting my heart doc. Just a checkup she has to do every 3 months to make sure the internal mp3 player (pacemaker) is still doing its job, so not to worry.
So, if you hop over here, or to any blog that uses Bluehost, and find them missing, no freaking out….the gubmint is not involved….I don’t think.
I’ve actually been quite busy all morning, but haven’t fallen off the planet. Just thought I’d throw that out there!
I had to have another procedure done on my back this morning. Yippee. Sadly, as with the last one, I am not feeling any relief. Maybe tomorrow?
I’m suppose to be putting ice on the injection site, which I am doing. However, always remember to pick it up off the chair so you can put it in the correct position after you sit down. If you don’t, MEGA cold hiney will result, and trust me, you do NOT wanna jerk up that fast after having a back procedure!
Posting any serious stuff right now is totally out of the realm of my abilities at the moment. I’m still a WEE bit drugged!
After more than 24 hours without our land line, AND INTERNET!… I am BACK! Well, more or less.
There has been a debate going on in my head, whether or not I should even say anything about what’s going on, but I figured the few regular readers I still have left deserved an explanation. So, here goes!
I’m sick. To put it mildly. LOL I have a chronic disease. Apparently, I’ve had this disease for about 35 years, and just found out last May when I was told my ex-husband had died. This would explain a great many misdiagnosis I’ve had over the last 10-15 years.
How did I get this disease? Well, let’s just say I enjoyed my younger years, much of it in a fog. I was always honest with my doctors, and why they never ran the needed tests is beyond me. Idiots! Could have save me a boatload of bucks with one simple blood test. NO, I do NOT have HIV/AIDS. Jeeez! Get a grip!
So, in the last couple of years, my health has deteriorated. This doesn’t count the total knee replacement (ballet) and the pacemaker (genetic), or the ear and fluid problems (allergies). Nope! This is in a class all it’s own. With all the symptoms I have, no one ever bothered putting 2 and 2 together, and coming up with….. TA DA!
I did mention, recently, the gut stab, aka biopsy, that I was having…which I had. I don’t recommend going through that unless absolutely necessary. Poor nurse. I wonder if she has gotten the feeling back in her fingers. Odd…every one who had to deal with me kept asking the Mr “Is she always like this?” *snort* Apparently, I was being myself. Heh.
Well, I got the results back, and no explanation. Seriously? Well, it was my heart doc that finally got tired of waiting for this fool in Savannah to get with the program, get the stab ordered, etc., and this is not her area of expertise. So, I had to do a bit of research on my own. I have shared the results with a select few, and will keep it that way. As best I can tell, I don’t have cancer, which is good. Thanking God! I’d be on my knees if I was able, don’cha know!
What did I discover? I have NO idea! Between my daughter, and a friend or two, who understand medical terms a whole lot better than I do, I have dead cells (severe focal liver cell necrosis…whatever that means). Yeah….and….?? Well, that’s as far as we’ve gotten. I’m waiting on a friend’s father in law, who is a physician, to explain it all in plain English (HINT HINT).
In the symptom category, fatigue is one of the big ones, along with complete body pain. Yippee! I’m lazy by nature, but fer cryin’ out loud….THIS is ridiculous! Out of all the symptoms(47…48?), there are 8 (I think) I DON’T have! Jeeez looooweeeez!
So, what’s the point for sharing this? Well, I have mentioned several times my lack of posting, other than the fact I get so pissed off. I just haven’t felt up to it. The fact that I do get so pissed off at the current state of affairs with that jackass in D.C. isn’t helping my condition, so I have to back off. Not that I want to, but have to, otherwise, I end up feeling physically worse.
Am I going to die? Well DUH! None of us get out alive! What a dumb question! LOL Am I going to die soon? I seriously doubt it…much to the dismay of many on the left.
So, there ya go! I just don’t feel up to posting much. The Bunker has been trying to take up the slack, and doing quite well, but hey…the dude has a real job, and can only do so much!
Lack of posting? Yeah… Fairly good reason, don’cha think?
Just a quick “I’m still alive” post! I’ve been ordered by the doc to do very little for the next 3 days. Yeah.. like this is any different from any other day? However, there is more “dayyum, that hurts” involved, so I think I’m gonna do my utmost to follow his instructions for a bit.
Not to worry…or worry…. I shall return!
Might even take the afternoon and evening off, too! But I’ll leave you with this little tidbit from Chad Crowe, just to ‘brighten’ your day!
Kathleen, I honestly thought I had added you to my links over there (which I really need to clean up). Well, I hadn’t, but now that’s been rectified, and there you are….see? Right there.
Old age sucks! Heh.
Well, today was an interesting day. First, I had to battle with my computer, and then the electricity went off! Everything! After 3 hours of no A/C, it was starting to get a wee bit warm in here, but thankfully, it finally came back on, and I survived.
So, what does a person do with no idjit box, no internet, no computer, etc.? Well, she decided to read her Kindle, of course! Seems like a good idea, right? Well, it would have been a brilliant idea if I had had a good charge on the sucker. sigh… But hey! Guess who has a crank lantern that charges contraptions!! ME!! WHOO HOO!! So, I crank the lantern, plug the cord in, and….nothing. Hmmm… Did you know you have to flip the switch to ON? Well, now you do!!
Of course, I did what I normally do when I read for any length of time…. I fell asleep! Well, unless I actually WANT to fall asleep, and then, it usually doesn’t work, but that’s beside the point.
There I was, happily snoozing, and my phone rings. UGH! I look at it and see it’s a call from Minnesota. I don’t know anyone in Minnesota, so I didn’t answer. Shock and surprise, there was a message. So, I check the message, expecting it to be someone asking for money for one organization or another. Nope! What I got was some gawd awful noise that MIGHT have been a fax machine. Kind of sounded like some kind of fire alarm to me, but hey, I was still semi asleep. I looked up the number, and apparently, it’s a number that when called, states it’s no longer in service. Hmmm… How do ya annoy people from a number that’s disconnected? Odd, don’cha think?
Apparently, while I was snoozing, D.C. called….again! I’d really appreciate it they would stop. I don’t have any money, and if I did, I sure wouldn’t be giving it to anyone in D.C. Sheesh! Give it a rest! Minimum of one call a day from this number, and some days, I get up to 10 from it! Jiminy crickets!
Oddly enough, I didn’t really miss not having the computer functional. Lately, I’ve been thinking I have “blogger burnout”. LOL Hey….it could happen!
….not much in the mood to post anything. The Mr is watching the Badgers whup some U Mass hinder, so suffering through D’Bama’s bumbling isn’t an option…thankfully. No doubt, we’ll hear plenty in the next couple of days. And as usual, he’s late anyway. The Mr says he’s probably too busy checking the polls and changing his undies. Heh.
Anyway, if the mood strikes me, I’ll slap a few words together…otherwise… I see pain meds in my future, and I ain’t likin’ that at all!
Not feeling like posting anything this morning. Reckon it’s just one of those days…at least so far. Who knows…maybe something will hit me later, but for now… I got a few things to do!
To put it bluntly, I didn’t feel much like posting anything. I had to go to Corinth for a stress test, and while it’s much improved, it takes longer. Pictures of this, push in that stuff, more pictures. Sheesh!
Anyway, we got back about 1:30, and all I wanted to do was sleep. So I did.
Yeah…well, whatever constitutes normal around here, I guess we’re back to it. The young’uns are back in Texas, Chris has returned to Yankeeland, and I’m in my jammies. Yep…that’s pretty normal…for me.
I’m quite aware that my blogging hasn’t been quite up to par in recent months, and there’s a darn good reason for that, too, even without the kids and friends, and travel, and….oh yes….let’s not forget this second bout with pee-moan-ya! sigh…. Getting real tired of this, don’cha know! My immune system sucks!
But, even though I have not been keeping up with posting my opinions on various subjects, that doesn’t mean I have been completely out of touch with what has been going on in the world. Although, truth be told, not as much as I usually do, and it’s been a lot more peaceful in my brain without all the feckless weasels, aka politicians, taking up space.
Yep, I’m aware the phony POTUS needs a geography lesson, and can’t be trusted to tell the truth about anything anyway.
I have to admit, this was, and wasn’t a surprise. Megyn Kelly is one of my favorites, but what are they going to do with Sean? I’ve no doubt he lost quite a few viewers, including me, when all he did was cover the Zimmerman/Trayvon disaster…nonstop!
Apparently, only black kids deserve the ‘race hustlers’ attention. When a white kid has the crap beat out of him by 3 black kids, we hear crickets. When a “white Hispanic” girl is stabbed 11 times by a black kid in a hoodie, we hear crickets. Will we hear any outrage from them about the 12 year old white girl who was strangled by a black boy? Lord knows, we won’t hear anything about the many black children murdered by other black kids, because, you know…that’s just a myth.
Wouldn’t you think that after they had been found out, the IRS would at least attempt to behave like they are a taxpayer funded entity? Nope. They’re still at it, and it just makes ya wonder…who is pulling the strings. Well, Truman said ‘the buck stops here’, referring to the Oval office, so, I reckon, all those bucks are landing on the current occupant’s lap. But that’s just a ‘phony scandal‘ don’cha know. Problem is, what we have is a PHONY president!
Well, like I said, I have been paying attention. Whether or not I’ll do more posting is another issue. It really all depends on how I feel, because at this point, that ain’t so swuft! sigh…
….ya just gotta say………………….
Is there someone at the Department of Homeland Security in search of bunny slippers? If so, I can give them several recommendations.
My favorites are the Maxine’s but the bottoms tend to wear out pretty fast, so ya have to replace them on a regular basis. Now, these that I received back in…looks like July of 2008 wore pretty well, at least for a while, then, the bottoms started to wear out on those as well. AND, of course, as with anything made of a white material, you have to wash them on a regular basis because they tend to get a tad dirty. Actually, they seemed to turn gray, for reasons I’ve yet to understand. Now, you’d think that because dirt can be brown, and/or grayish, that would make sense, however, our dirt around here is neither….it’s flippin’ ORANGE!
Now, if my friends at DHS are serious, I’d be happy to help them out in finding a pair of bunnies that would fit their personality…
…other wise…. GET A FLIPPIN’ GRIP! SHEESH!
I have been attempting to back up the blog, so my guru up in WI can update the thing. So far, I’m not having a whole lot of luck. It gets to a certain point, then….STOPS! Do you know how frustrating it is to look at something every hour and see the little bar has not moved….AT ALL?? UGH! I’m on attempt #4 right now. So, apparently, I’m out of the running today, as far as blog stuff goes. Cross your fingers, toes, eyes, and throw in a prayer or two, that I won’t take this contraption and toss it through the living room window. The Mr would be mighty chapped if I did that…new computer….new window… Nope…won’t like me at all!
Just as well, I suppose, since I still feel like warmed over chicken poop. Pneumonia meds aren’t kicking in fast enough to suit me!
