Falderal and Fiddle Dee Dee...Fiddly Faddly Foodle!

Well hellloooo there Blogland! It's been ages, but for some reason, I have this burning urge and desire to post something! :-) I think I will just provide an update of the goings-on this past year and open the floor for you all to catch me up on what's going on with you.

With that said...

I guess you could say that I pretty much gave up on dating. I mean I dibble and dabble a bit, but at the end of the day, I think I'm quite happy in my own little world. I concentrate mostly on work, church and kids. Sure, I would LOVE to meet Mr. Right instead of Mr. Right Now, but I just don't have the energy to search. Perhaps he shall fall in my lap one day and we will join in Marital bliss.

Will is now on the verge of being a teenager...I mean right on the cusp. I'm sure you all know about the longer showers, the cologne that makes you gag, the girls getting all googly eyed etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Oh yeah, it burns my ass. And you see both my boys get excellent grades in school, in fact Will earned straight A's this last time. The only problem is this puberty thing is breeding bad behavior and he keeps getting in trouble! I am going to keep praying on that one, because not only am I "Old School" when it comes to consequences, if he keeps it up, he will not be permitted to do much more than eat, sleep, shit, shower and breathe the rest of his childhood years!

I have finally decided to buckle down and purchase a house. All the money down the drain in rent for something that I will never own has me well on my way to record levels of pisstivity. So I will keep you posted, but so far, it's looking pretty good!

And now for the most earth shattering and monumental event that has happened in my life in the past year...I just got out of the hospital last week. I went to the doctor for what I thought was a pulled muscle, and it turns out that I have Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in my left leg, and a Pulmonary Embolism (PE) in my right lung. All the doctors were looking at me in amazement saying how lucky I was because the pieces that broke off in my leg and traveled to my lung had to have passed through my heart. In my estimation, I am blessed and am quite elated that God has other plans for me. To this day, they cannot figure out what caused it, but I know that I was on Yasmine for a number of years...I will be contacting them upon closing this post.

So (exhaling vigorously), what about you all? Are you still out there? Talk to me...what has been going on in Blogland?

You were very fortunate, as you now know. Wow! I'm sure you're going to keep an eye on your health and do what is necessary to take care of yourself. I'll let you take time to peruse and ponder my archives to catch up with me. LOL.

Hey! That's so scary. I'm glad you made it through alright. I just bought my first house and I love it...Although it is a ton of work, it's still amazing.

Churlita-Thanks, and oh how inspiring! I am going to my first time home owner's class in the AM! :-)

Well how nice of you to post something..IT HAS BEEN OVER A YEAR! Do you hear me, over a WHOLE YEAR! Get with the program, missy!

And yes, I'm very happy that your heath is looking good. You were beyond lucky, someone is looking out for you, for sure.

Ugh, the teenaged years...call me. We can talk. :)

Pamela said...

Wow... I thought you were dead or something. And look, you almost were! Scary. I think I even gave up (shame on me) and deleted your link... I'm no good.

Since you won't read the last year of my blog, I'll just say that M is my friend of 14+ years who last November became more than friends (without the impetus of alcohol) and we are now moving to San Francisco together in June. Scary!

Great to hear from you.

Tera said...

NoR~Ahem...escuse me, Pamela~Are you shitting me?! That is awesome girl...and REALLY romantic! Hey you know what they say, seize the moment! Congrats! :-)

Tera said...
