I’ve been trying to find a way to lighten up, but still continue to write a bit more than I have been of late. I tried my hand at a positive living blog with Carrot; truth be told it was one of my more negative, hateful experiences… totally less than positive. So I’ve decided to go back to where I had my most fun in blogging. My very first blog was Tale of a Caniche. I didn’t know half the people I know now in the virtual world. I don’t even recall if I had ANY followers, but I did have fun.
It’s time to have more fun so I started a second blog in the spirit of my first. This one is called Too Dark To Read and is also dedicated to fun, your pets, and life with my new girl Joulie.
Be sure to visit at the link above and also when there, to visit JOULIE’S page. If you want to include a favorite animal just send me a photo.
I have been really fortunate to have really great healthcare practitioners. Oh like everyone I’ve had my share of bottom of the charm and intelligence class dropouts, but I currently have the best acupuncturist, the best vet (for Joulie, not me), and a couple really great specialists as well. I’ve invested a lot of time creating this team… totally worth peace of mind, (well, considering it’s my mind….peace is relative!)
I am healing, and will be getting a second opinion on some surgery in a few weeks. I have been forced to lay low lately. I’ve been trying to stay on my feet by cutting back. Unfortunately, I tend to get bored quickly. I’m highly distractible and require a certain amount of entertainment value in my daily living. A little while back I realized that I never adjusted my lifestyle based on my limitations. In order to be fun, something usually has to be physically active for me to enjoy it. I can’t do much beyond walking these days, and some not even that. I feel like I’ve been searching for the ideal activity forever. None the less… could be SO much worse. I am healing, my endurance is increasing, and my pain is completely controlled without meds.
Taking walks with Joulie is allowing us to enjoy more wildlife; bunnies, skunks and deer, birds, fox and lots of other dogs and their humans. Joulie is learning the rules and has been able to stick to “inside voice” pretty consistently.
It seems the blogging world has slowed a bit as of late. I am no exception, but I am grateful that 6 sentence stories continues and that the TToT is up and running.
Go check out the new blog and enjoy the long weekend if you’re lucky enough to have it off!
