Yea, it's been awhile.

Well, October of last year was the last official visit. Been awhile, huh?  Don't know that much has actually happened since last we spoke.  One medical issue has been resolved (abnormal uterine bleeding...who knew that if you lost enough blood, it might affect your heart? hence, I received my first blood transfusions).  New glasses, working toward getting a left knee replacement.

Won some knifty giveaways, photos on Thursday.  Tried my hand at rearranging my wee personal space & discovered that until more sewing is completed, there isn't the room to actually rearrange.  Read a few more books, including books 3,4,5 of Game of Thrones. Which won't be featured on Sat. Quotes/Visual as I didn't actually read them through. Rather, I skimmed most & read what chapters pertained to the characters I am interested in: Arya, Danny, Robb/Mom, Bran, Hodor, Tyrion, the dragons & the direwolves.  Suffice to say, I am really irritated with Danny.

Turtie the turtle is growing nicely. Alex the fish has been added. I started a part-time job, but got my hours eliminated almost 3 months ago (budget cuts a/k/a they fired the person who hired me). 

For Memorial Day, I present:
a coat of dog tags

The poem it inspired:
Dogs of War

The person it reminded me of:

The saddest song ever:
Day is Done



  1. It seems so many of us have come up with some kind of significant health problem. What's that about a knee replacement? I've been trying everything under the sun in an effort to avoid more cutting of my hip or shoulder. But if I must, then I will. I will add your name to my honey jar.

    I showed the coat to paps. He didn't get it at first. And when I showed him the text, he covered his mouth. When I read him the poem, he cried.

    Tough history in the making...

  2. I am so sorry about your medical issues, it sounds heavy.

    Even though you haven't been posting much it's been good to see you pop in over at my blog now and again - just to know you're still alive :)

  3. I'm so sorry you have been struggling with health troubles, I will send all the positive energies I can in hopes that your health will improve,
    The coat of tags is incredible but sad, the poem is very sad, the video would not work, take care, I will keep you in my thoughts,
