Yes, I have certainly and most definitely missed writing you. However, there are good reasons.
To begin, my insulin pump stopped working for at least eight days. Not familiar with such a device? Well, I won’t share a long description or explanation. Briefly, it is a computerized machine, similar to a human pancreas, that I wear on my waistband. That’s the simple part. When it refuses to operate properly and as programmed, sickness occurs. As an insulin-dependent diabetic for over fifty years now, being without insulin for even a very short period of time turns me into a physical, emotional, and psychological mess! It’s just plain awful.
With that said, I contacted my dependable pharmacy for a refill on a box of one hundred syringes and one vial of a long-lasting type of insulin. Seventy-six dollars later, I was at a teary point. How many times must a person budget a budget?! I guess as many times as it takes. Not easy.
To go on, the scheduled carpet cleaners were expected at 10:00am and did not show until 5:00pm. Okay, I swallowed my tongue and got over that.
Then, one of my two dogs had diarrhea. Yep. Not a pretty sight. Again, I took care of that.
Due to something I wrote in my book, an autobiography mind you, insulted a family member. She has not spoken to me for six days. Good Lord!
Wait, I’m not done yet!
A member of the charitable organization that is to receive proceeds from the sale of the aforementioned autobiography e-mailed me a request to stop mentioning the book on their newsgroup. Can you believe that?! I am beside myself – with a hole in my heart! How can that even be a possibility?!
To top it off, my telephone stopped working. That could actually be a good thing, if you really think about it. However, I was unable to place outgoing calls for three days. Ho hum.
With my husband being in La (comic relief for “Los Angeles”), I try my hardest not to complain and put all these conundrums in a humorous light. After all, there’s nothing he can do. So, I go on.
So, what’s up in YOUR world?! I thank you for your ongoing visits to my website. I look forward to viewing viewers’ views. Ha ha.
I just wanted to ‘touch base’ and let you know I am still here. I like you and will be in touch sooner than you can – well, whatever. Goodnight! Thank you for listening. AK.
