No Offense

My posting has become sporadic and dull lately, I know. I have not gone off in any kind of offended huff and I don't mean to offend anybody by suddenly vanishing from conversations. I've been having a lot of health problems and I've just today escaped from a hospital stay. I'll try to catch up but I tire easily. I still do care about all of y'all and MoM in general and I'll be reading if not always replying to posts. Hopefully, things will soon improve and I'll be back to my old self soon.

Please, please take good care of yourself and get plenty of rest...and I hope you are feeling much better very soon.

I don't think MoMers would think anything offensive in your on an off posting...seems to happen a lot around here, especially in the summer months, when so many are off traveling around....but I am sure you have been missed...not just by me...but by many of the regular MoMers.

I'm sad to bear out and witness
That Sandi's been sick of the sickness.
She's been ever so ill;
Won't be better until
She's holiday'd up in the Catskill.





Sorry to change the rhyme scheme, but it went better that way .....

Agreed. Your health is way more important than forcing yourself to post when you don't feel like it.

Same thing here, Sandi, I'm just been busy in real life, and my own body isn't being nice to me, :goup: Its keeping my mind from respond good, some what cross between a storm anchor and a overused hook, line and sinker (Wanting to say something, but it traped)

Get well soon and I'm here after some information, so I can send out the money orders, to one MoMer and SFBC too. Hopefully next month I can send out the money order to the other MoMer who has a book on hold for me.

Also I too sometime do the same thing.

Thanks for all the encouraging words! I am feeling better. At least when I get in my own bed I can actually sleep. Sleeping in that hospital is pretty nearly impossible.

Sleeping in a hospital is "HELL" on earth, they are always waking you up to give you something or take something out of you...or your roomy is complaining all night to the nurse...you certainly don't get any REST there...UGG!!!

Glad to read that you are sleeping a bit more restfull, in your own bed...try and get plenty of rest...Here's hoping you *Get Well sooner*
