Disappearing Act

I haven’t posted anything new, or even logged on to Blogger, in a week. I’m not usually this quiet. Siren arrived on Thursday, so she kept me pretty busy all weekend, and then I woke up sick on Sunday morning. I have been sick all week. And since I have been sick, I have not been at work. And since I haven’t been at work I cannot blog because my computer still isn’t fixed.

I’m trying not to get frustrated about the broken computer because I know Leland is super busy. He has a ton on his plate, so I’m trying not to nag him to get the computer fixed. When I’m healthy and at work, it’s not such a big deal that the home computer is broken. I know zero about computers so fixing it myself is out of the question.

Anyway…

Siren and I went to doctor’s appointments on Friday, which I will tell you all about soon. We spent Saturday helping Leland, my dad, brother-in-law and sister build my deck. It was freezing cold but we were all out working anyway. My sister and brother-in-law rocked the deck boards and now we have a deck on the back of the house we can use. Leland and my dad built the railings and Siren and I did the grunt work. The deck is so close to being done. When it is, I’ll post pictures.

On Sunday we went apple picking with my family. It was super cold in the morning. I was feeling sick, but wouldn’t miss apple picking for anything. I layered my clothes and braved the weather. We all did. Our usual apple picking trips last about 4 hours, but this time we rushed our way through it. It was way too cold to spend 4 hours outside.

Siren left on Monday morning and I went to sleep for the next 3 days. I’m feeling a little better this morning. Though I would love to be at home sleeping the rest of the sickness off, I simply cannot afford to miss anymore work. So here I am. Back at work, back in the blogging world, back to reality.

I hope you all are doing well!

Hmmm, the first thing I thought was.... could you be pregnant? All that built up sperm from Leland when your vagina was torn perhaps?

Anyway, I hope you're feeling better. Just enjoy your time with your friend. I haven't been blogging or reading much either - too busy exploring my new home town.

Just take care of yourself and enjoy life. Blogging is fun but sometimes it gets in the way of real life! ;-)

I hope you start feeling better. Glad you're back!

Yay for the new deck! Maybe it'll warm up a little and you can get some use out of it still this fall!!

Glad you are back. And, no, I did not make the same assumption that Mandy has above. Just figured you must have a virus or the flu - but now that I give it some thought ;-)

I wish I could reach all the way over to your computer ... I might be able to fix it (I do that sort of thing on the side at work).

I hope you feel better really soon!! The deck sounds intriguing, and since you did the work, I bet it looks great!

Wow, you have a girlfriend named Siren? I guess she attracts men like a racing fire truck?

Must be fun to be with her during happy hour!

I've never gone apple picking...this week I'm on bed rest, and will be until next week, so I can understand sleeping for days...I actually can't wait for the next week to pass. It's boring :)
