It’s been a busy week all around. Home, work, church. I have not had the time, energy, or inclination to keep up with blogosphere.
It’s not that I’m in a black funk … though I was in that place when I last posted here. It’s mostly that I haven’t had anything of value to say.
Then I hurt my back (bad!) and have been suffering since last Friday. It's been hard to sit upright with the laptop.
Yesterday – thanks be to God! – my sister came up for a p.m. meeting and a Sister Slumber Party. That was delightful. And she was most kind.
After three days of limping around, today I went to the doc (who is a D.O., not a M.D.), and she cracked and broke most of my spinal system. I'm still in a lot of pain and on muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories, but I hope I'm on the upswing now. At least I'm not just lying around and whimpering. Well, truth to tell, I am still whimpering more than I should. But I hope things will get better.
I know I owe some of you e-mail responses, and I hope you will forgive my tardiness.
Over the past week, I have not had the heart or will to follow the Anglican blogosphere. I have kept up with some news, and have been sad to read the news (especially from MadPriest) about some bloggers who are “giving it up.” I am not giving it up. I just can’t sit upright, and the meds keep me from thinking clearly.
Occasionally, I have thought I was seeking discernment. But nah! I'm just seeking the ability to sit upright long enough to read the blogs and write on my own. Surely it won't be long before I back to my ranting and fulminating self.
As Arnold said: I will be back.
