I haven’t blogged in quite some time.  I simply have nothing to say.  How weird is that?
I did have the successful hysterectomy. Once I passed the major pain part, I felt better than I have in years! I gave birth to 3 giant tumors and quickly lot 20 pounds and felt like a healthy, happy, vibrant woman! Yippee!!
I fell twice on the same day last week. What is up with that? Once was on some ice, so I might be able to explain that one. The second time I missed a step and did a complete face plant on my own sidewalk. Not pretty. Although I didn’t notice any major injuries. However, my surgically corrected ankle, repaired last May from a 2007 injury seems to be acting up in an ugly way. So on Tuesday it’s back to see the Ankle surgeon to figure out what went wrong. I will probably have my 3rd major surgery in 8 months. Who does that? Who takes 3 medical leaves from work within less than a year? WTH....There is clearly a message from God in all this, but dang if I know what it is.
At first I thought the message was to “slow down“. Stop working so hard and trying remember what is important. Okay - I did. I’m still doing it. Spending time with family, working fewer hours and all that good stuff. Okay - mission accomplished.
The second surgery taught me to turn off the TV and do some soul searching about my job, career and future. I spent those 3 bed-ridden weeks analyzing my job and trying to decide what I want to do instead. Looking at my “gifts” or “talents” and seeing what field they would fit. Mission Accomplished.
For the third surgery, I wonder what I’ll do for that one? I could probably fix the economy. Solve the problems of the world. Heal the sick. I mean, if I’m going to keep having surgery until I figure out what the message is....I’d better stop thinking so small. maybe I need to stop thinking about fixing myself and reach out a little bit. Fix the rest of the human race!!
Um - maybe not.  I’m just an ordinary woman that tends to fall down a lot.  I haven’t changed my life yet.  Maybe this one is to figure out what I need to do to change my life.

    • I don’t know, Jomi.  A crisis?  On a good day, I’d say it’s not a crisis, but a learning opportunity.  A chance to figure out what the hell we‘re doing here.  Where is the passion and the purpose?  However, on a bad day, I’d say it’s a pre-menopausal late mid-life crisis (also known as a bitch glitch) and will end in its own good time!
      I guess a change of life could be a good thing, right.  A reinvention of self.  A shift of sorts.  What do you think?

    • Sleep?  What’s that?  I’m excited for you, Teeky.  It sounds like you‘re doing the right things and finding your own direction.  AWESOME!
      I hear ya about the T in the road, Jomi.  So I think I’ll keep going straight and then figure out my direction another time!  Too bad they don’t have those GPS thingies for life planning, huh.  A nice voice could just tell us “turn right in 100 feet“!

    • Queenbee, how about a sexy pool boy voice on the life GPS?  lol
      Teeky, I like what you have to say.  It makes sense.  I just wish I could process things faster at this part of my life.  I feel like I’m running out of time!
