All Words Wednesday

Yes, there will be pictures again -- have to document my college reunion that's coming up this weekend -- but probably not until next week. The last week has been tough and I get home from work and I am asleep in a short while, which doesn't leave a lot of time for blogging, or much else. I put off the surgery to go to Rochester, reunion and do a few other things I want to do, but it's getting tougher, i.e., more painful to get around and I am tired when I get home. I've realized -- with some nudges from friends and colleagues -- that I can't just keep pushing and will take off some time before the surgery.

I had a great time in Rochester and I am so glad I made the trip. The graduate is the son of a high school friend who has become family and I have literally known Ben from the day he was born. I so enjoyed celebrating his accomplishments and the wonderful young man he has become. Next week he begins a cross-country bike trip. I've asked him to let us know how we can keep up with his trip and if he chooses to blog I will pass it on. Sadly there were few lilacs. They were a victim of budding early and then fell to the cold weather that followed.

Despite the difficulties right now I am definitely counting my blessings and high on the list are my blog buddies. Take good care and have a sweet Wednesday!

Glad you will be taking some time off. You need to be at your best facing that surgery and not all worn out. Hope your Wednesday is a wonderful one!

As I am a "newbie" following your blog, I hadn't known about your upcoming surgery. When is it scheduled? I wish you well as you prepare yourself for what is coming.


You are facing a difficult time with surgery ahead of you. i think some time off would do you good. I threw my back out over the weekend and have a gnawing pain in my right side that will not quit. I can only imagine your pain. take care. Do not overdo.
