All's Well

My sister has emailed me to complain that she is tired of looking at "Should I Be Worried?" when she visits my blog.  I quote: "...people will be worried."  I doubt that, but I apologize to my loyal readers who find nothing new when/if they visit.

All's well, here. I've simply been beset by ennui, due partly to the heat and partly to the lingering discomfort in my back. I have visited my physician who, after extensive tests to and upon my person, has declared that nothing is broken and that my problems are "age-related."  I hate that! I don't mind 'getting older'; it's the getting 'old' that torques my jaws.  I'll get over it -- one way or another, sooner or later.

On the plus side, during the hiatus I've read a couple of quirky mystery stories (a detective who is assisted by ghosts) that I downloaded onto my Kindle.  I wouldn't want a steady diet of that sort, but they were enjoyable diversions.

I hope you all are well, and staying cool.

As my friend Suldog might say "Later, with better stuff."

Tomorrow is also a day.

At least you know someone is paying attention! I tend to go in spurts re blogging and commenting on blogs. And yes, the weather is not helping.

Blogs and bloggers pop in and out as the fancy takes them - that's their beauty! No 'Must Do' attached - like work1 ♥

I can so relate. I just hate that "age related" diagnosis. My dermatologist uses that term all the time. Stay cool Pat.

Yea for sisters! I was getting worried too. :) I'd love to know the name of the detective book with the ghost as an assistance. blessings, marlene

Good for your sister, Pat. We do miss you!!!!!

Hubby is having back problems also --and may eventually have back surgery. So far, he's okay as long as he is on some pain medication.... It's not fun though.

Take care of you---and keep in touch.

I'm glad to hear that all is well. I can sympathize with you when it comes to 'age-related' back problems. I personally consider that a major downer!
Stay cool. Light reading seems to me a perfect activity for the type of weather we've been having.

Suldog said...

Well, I might say that, yes. But what I will say is "Thanks!" for the linky love. Also, thank you for calling me "friend". That's nice.

I think the heat has got us all, and it seems exacerbate all our old age illnesses.

i may be watering in the dark tonight as I refuse to upset my heart. It is 103 deg right now, 5:32 p.m. in my home town. i know it is at least a few degrees hotter in your neck of the woods.

I had to look up 'ennui'....I think I sometimes suffer from it;-)
