Oh The Things That I Could Tell You.....

That you'd never want to hear. BUT.I.CAN'T.SIT. for more than five minutes, and I only get that if I'm lucky. I have an iPod which keeps me from feeling like I've been dropped in a nunnery in the Swiss Alps. At least I have contact with the outside world. But I can't write. I can't visit. I can't even check Gmail (which is my blog email account) because of the computer meltdown. When I've tried to visit blogs on my iPod it takes forEVER to write a comment and then, more often than not, I lose the whole thing so that idea is dead.

(OH.MY.GOOD.OLFACTORIES! If my dog, who is laying at my feet, does ONE MORE OF THOSE THINGS, I'm passing out right after throwing up!)

I had planned to at least visit you guys but THAT hasn't happened. I planned to horrify you with the details of my surgery. THAT hasn't happned. I planned to write more chapters in my book. Well, you get the idea. I'm a deadbeat. I have had pain that should have its own book and agent but who'd read it or buy it? I'd have to pay people to perform those chores and that's not a direction that feels really fruitful. I am NOT back to my life. I don't know WHEN I'll be back to my life. I'm grumpy. I'm WHINEY. I'm not unaware that others have far more difficulties. So I'm also GUILTY which makes me whinier and grumpier. I'm gangs of fun.

Wish you were here!

  1. Wish I was there too! We could keep each other company... since I hear that misery LOVES company!

    Whiney? Grumpy? Are you completely SURE that we're not twins separated at birth? Well, certainly non-identical twins anyway. I hate to say "fraternal" twins, since that conjures up visions of Masonic/Moose/Elk/Woodsmen babies... or sumthin' along those lines. And since neither of us have moustaches or other facial hair (well...not always anyway) that kind of leaves us with being non-identical, eh? Besides, you're cuter.

    Okay, I'll quit now. It seems the euphoric part of my migraine has now kicked in and I'm blathering like an idiot.

  3. Welcome back to the land of the (mostly) living SASS... Sorry about the not being able to sit for more than 5 minutes. I hope you are getting a lot of fiber...

    As to the olfactories assault... When I had my Doberman many years ago the vet told me to give her a gingersnap cookie or two a day. She loved them and they did help with her s.b.d.'s (silent but deadlys) so I thought I'd better start eating them too.... is it okay to make you laugh?

    Love you,

    SASS

  4. I feel your pain….in a sorta I’ve had multiple surgeries’ before kinda way! The recovery process is never any fun and it always seems to take way longer that the Dr. tell ya!

    Pain meds are GREAT unless they make you feel bad, I hope you are tolerating them! Friends that bring over dinner are even better, I hope you have lots of them too!

    Tea and sympathy are wonderful, I hope you have huge doses of both during your recovery!

    Blessings

  6. Wow. I don't think I want to EVER have what you had, Robynn. So when you do get well enough to be able to sit, I look forward to your story. Until then, though, I'm just hoping you hang in there and get well. I'm sending you big hugs through the ether, I hope you can feel them and they make you feel better...

  7. Well, look on the bright side...you get to catch up on all that lost sleep while playing famous and working on a movie set and You get to bow out of all kinds of stuff that you really didn't want to do in the first place.

  8. Robynn so glad you posted. I was starting to be concernd. Go ahead and whine and be grumpy I've been there.

    Earlier in the year I had surgery on my shoulder, even I got tired of my whining. But "this too shall pass."

    Hang in there and get 100% better soon. We all miss you.

    blessings / Barbara

  11. At least you're grumping at us a little bit, which means you'll soon be back in true Robynn form. Glad to see it.

  13. Hey, grumpy or not I like hearing how you are doing. Take care of yourself, recover from the surgery, check in like this when you can.

  14. Whiny and grumpy is okay! Just continue to heal. I had surgery last year and it took a long time to be able to blog with any sort of enthusiasm. You, don't have that problem. :) Good thoughts and prayers.

  17. Am I the only person on the planet that doesn't have an iPod???? (I had to go back to your original post to see how to SPELL it!....sigh.)
    I love to come here. I hug you through your recovery, your pain, your grumpiness (which DOES NOT show in your blogging!! :)))) and please know that whether you visit or not...comment or not, you are truly loved and hugged. The pleasure is mine to be here.
    Take care of you, Robynn.

  18. I know ... you probably don't want to hear this ... but, honestly, you crack me up. I mean with all going on and you STILL find time/energy to collect your thoughts enough to be coherently funny. You are such a 'please-er', you. I missed commenting on your last post. I do hope all heals well. And, wow, your profile pic, you are so kind and joyful looking and man-o-man.. or shall i say, young man-o-man... your son favors his momma(!).
    Prayers going your way.

  22. Oh, sweet, girl! I hope your IPOD at least lets you read your comments and that cheers you up.

    You're in my prayer notebook and I'm praying for a quick recovery. Sorry you're so down. Not sure I'm looking forward to the gory details, but your entertainment is always welcome.

    Take care!!

  25. Hope you feel better soon - I guess your rant will have helped the recovery just a tad? Time will heal and, if not, try more chocolate and wine?
