First of all, I wanted to apologize for my absence. For the past week and a half, I’ve been battling bronchitis. Many sleepless nights have ensued and I’m afraid it’s time to admit that it has whipped my derriere. Breathing has become so difficult, I’m using an asthma inhaler even though I’m not asthmatic.
But not to fear, friends.
I’m beat but not broken.
(Although something tells me that the surgical mask wearers the Son and the Significant Other would say otherwise.)
Tonight, feeling like I can finally breathe a little better, I decided it was time to pull myself up by the bootstraps, actually, by my piggy house slippers, and tell all of you how much I’ve missed you.
Please forgive my absence to your blogs.
I hope to be get better soon and look forward to reading all your posts.
I also want to express my gratitude to all who have emailed and sent Twitter messages asking how I am. Please know that you are lovely, lovely, lovely and I am very appreciative for your concern.
And now I want to leave you with a post I wrote before bronchitis snared me in its clutches.
It’s been two weeks since then but I think you will still enjoy it.
I’ll be back as soon as I can take a full breath.
Until then, enjoy!
I find it ironic that someone who loves technology and gadgets as much as I do, can’t afford to have any.
I feel cheated.
And let’s face it, in a time where people can instantly post from their cell phones to the net and post photos using cutesy apps like Instagram, I feel deprived.
Yet, not one to cry over what I don’t have (though I find complaining to be the perfect way to channel my frustration), I decided to take matters into my own hands.
The photos you are about to peruse are not “sent from my iPhone.”
Heck, they’re not even sent.
I had to upload them with a USB cable.
Nevertheless, when life gives you lemons, you make a lemon pound cake.
Or a lemon meringue pie.
Or a lemon granita.
You get the picture.
Speaking of pictures…
These sightings took place in the spell of four days.
During this time, we went from cold, to colder, to snow.
All photos taken with my barely alive but still kicking Nokia.
Which is your favorite?
