It’s been far too long since I blogged, and I’ve not even been around twitter much lately, so I figured I’d drop a quick update here.
I usually don’t spend nearly as much time online during the summer… I have a couple of acres of yard to mow and a garden to take care of, on top of all of my normal household stuff, which I can’t even keep up with during the winter. Add to that the extra social events summer’s always filled with and I’m usually not around much this time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I still spend a ton of time in my ez-chair trying to recuperate, but I’m usually too tired or too overwhelmed to do much socializing.
I’ll probably be even more scarce this year than normal, because my best friend/brother is coming in a little over a month (HOOORAY!!) and I’m not likely to be online much at all while he’s here. So, if you don’t see much of me between now and fall that’s why. I’m sure I’ll have a ton to share after things settle down in the fall, though.
I usually have my nieces and nephews out for a while each during the summer, too, things are still up in the air for this year, but I may have some starting next week. It’s so hectic and draining for me, but boy is it fun :)
My mom usually helps with my garden a few times and hasn’t been down at all this year, I managed to get it planted myself, but collapsed afterwards and haven’t had the energy to do much since then, so it’s so full of weeds it looks like I planted my veggies in the middle of my yard lol… I’m getting cukes and zucchini out of it already, though. I absolutely LOVE having fresh food from the garden.
My corn got knocked down in the awesome thunderstorm we had last night, it didn’t snap so I straightened it up and expect it to live, but I don’t reckon it’ll produce well. That storm was totally worth the corn damage though, best one I’ve seen in a long time.
I finally found a quackpractor (i.e. chiropractor) in the area who would take xrays before working on me (something I insist on)… he does not impress me at all, but he has some really great equipment that does most of the work for him (it actually does a computerized adjustment), so I’m going to go for a while and see how it goes. He wanted me to come in every single day for 2 weeks, but I had to put my foot down there… I can’t even depend on being able to get out of bed every day, let alone driving a half hour. I’m going to go every other day for now. It’s seeming like it might help some. My back’s been messed up for years but I hadn’t been to a chiropractor for over 10 years… I didn’t realize my insurance would cover it.
I’m heading to Cincinnati Friday to have dinner with a friend and his family, can’t wait! I also get to pick up some ticket vouchers while I’m there that I won from a local news station, for a musical in September, so cool! I haven’t quite decided who to take yet.
Anywho, this was supposed to be a quick update so I’ll cut myself off here, I hope everyone’s having a wonderful summer! :)
