Thursday Thirteen - Thirteen Reasons I Haven’t Been Blogging Lately

  1. No internet at home……I know, sacrilege
  2. I’ve had a horrific stomach virus for almost a week that’s kept me down and out
  3. I have developed lateral epicondylitis from too much research
  4. Okay, okay I got tennis elbow from surfin’ the web
  5. My neighbor and I went through the alcohol and chocolate in less than two days
  6. See number two
  7. I’ve been spring cleaning and have only ¼ of the house finished. As I’ve been in the house for over eighteen years there is a LOT of purging going on
  8. Catching up at work after being out for most of the week
  9. End of the school year parenting duties….and I really hate being nice to the hypocrites that swarm amongst themselves spouting what good Christians they are while shunning the new people. I have become a crusader. Call me Joan.
  10. Spring football. Thank you baby Jesus, A-men.
  11. I’ve been really tired lately and by the time I get home the urge to write has bound and gagged itself and to perilously dangle upside-down from my rooftop
  12. My neighbor’s sister gave me two Publix bags full of books; I haven’t finished the first bag yet
  13. The lateral epicondylitis is actually a bit painful and as I am a single mom that doesn’t get enough sympathy I’m milking this for all it’s worth

#12 would be my downfall.

I will give you all the sympathy you want. Being a mom is hard enough without doing it alone. Joan is a great thing to be. I am not sure exactly what you are referring to but, Sometimes being Christian is more of an verb than a noun. Sometimes people forget. Get some rest. I hope you mend soon.I need some good books. Send some my way.

That's too bad about #5...

Seriously though, I hope you feel better soon. I had a stomach virus earlier this year, and was sick for about a week as well. No fun. But a good diet.

At least tell me you wear a cute, little tennis skirt when you surf the web...cute little tennis bracelet? A couple of tennis balls in your pocket?

Lateral Epicondylitis? I have it, too. Left side. And frozen shoulder. left side. I'm left handed. TYPE WITH ONE HAND.
