Well, shit. Are you serious? That’s it? I laid my soul bare about my prejudices and radical views of limiting how many penis bearing boy children a person could have and…. wait a minute! That’s China! And it’s not boys, it’s girls! (Not to mention it was no time recently, but, whatever…)
And, really? I didn’t do that, though I considered it. Maybe that would get me some hate mail, ( or is that hate male? HAHAHA!), and then I would feel like a “real blogger”. *sigh*
Oh well, I tried. Now I will have to blast God or something to get noticed… Shit. I really hate to tempt fate like that and can’t seem to find any steam to put behind it so I guess I will just pass.
OK, not to mention I don’t blast God for, like, anything.
Once again I am in bed and Jeopardy is on. We love that show. Ever since John got so sick with the congestive heart failure back in October, he has been too tired to watch it with me most of the time. It comes on at 11:35PM.
You know, it is the most bizarre thing. I mean to think it could happen to anybody! John was just going about his business one day and the next he had caught a virus that would ultimately infect his heart. We didn’t know that it would of course. But, it did and I can honestly say that I don’t remember when he got the “cold” that started this whole thing off. I just remember that he started coughing sometime during last September and he hasn’t really stopped.
I mean he has never smoked. He lives a blame free lifestyle. He doesn’t drink excessively, or actually I guess I should say he didn’t, since he doesn’t drink at all now. Whatever. He is well behaved. To be honest he would have to be or I wouldn’t have married him. 😉
Well, there you have it. He started coughing in September and went in the hospital October 1st. He spent 22 days in there and he’s still totally screwed up.
He almost died and I keep thinking it’s still going to happen if I look away for a second. I don’t know why my paying attention would help… That’s how egocentric I am, I guess.
If you or your spouse has the opportunity to sign up for long term disability insurance at work…
Do so. Please remember that… Do so.
We didn’t and even though he could get the disability go ahead from any of his doctors at any time, we don’t have it, and Medicare’s disability insurance isn’t enough to keep a gnat alive. At least not these gnats.
I don’t really know what we are going to do in the long run, but we are looking into all possibilities.
Anyone wanna lease a little old lady? I know I make it sound glamorous, but really!
She Could Be Yours!
(For a limited amount of time and restrictions apply…Though I can’t think what they may be…) 😉
Well, now Craig Ferguson is on and the lady that wrote The Glass Castle, Jeannette Walls is on and I really loved that book. So I am off to watch mindless television, me lovelies!

If it makes you feel better, I’ve never received hate email either. Maybe we can send each other some.

Don’t feel bad. The only time I got hate mail was when I posted some mindless weather pictures of storm clouds at the exact same time that Michael Jackson’s death was announced. (I had no idea that MJ had just died.) Go figure.
I know someone who “smokes like a chimney and drinks like a fish” and she’s still kicking. And I know someone who never smoked and rarely drank and got congestive heart failure. Life – go figure. But it’s not fair when it happens to those rare “well-behaved” guys….there’s so few of them…as you know….. 😉

I remember finding a huge – bigger than a walnut – lump in the soft tissue on the underside of my jaw. I remember lying awake not being able to think of anything it could possibly be besides cancer and my brain scrambling to assess how prepared I was for various potentially disabling situation. Thankfully in my case it turned out to be a blocked gland, but it definitely taught me that life can turn on it’s ear in an instant. You give very good advice, my dear.

Hm. I’ve never received hate mail, either. Well, unless you count the time my ex-husband found my blog and called me a foul mouthed bitch.

Ok… I’m adding “disability insurance” to my to-do list. Not for me, mind you, but for Mr Hyphen. Heck, I don’t even have life insurance anymore… because apparently it won’t take much to replace me.
I’ll take H off your hands. I need some entertainment around here.

Which old lady are you leasing out? 🙂
Besides, I have more penises in my house, and little ones at that (I mean young ones, but went for the cheap giggle. 🙂
My next comments for you will have to be all emoti’s all the time, I think. Since I use them so much here. 8)
What was I saying…
