I've been a little MIA lately. But recent events have returned me 'normal'.
Two days ago our neighbor had a little run-in with the SWAT team. We were told to stay in our house while the SWAT team removed him from his.
I was Frightened! We were told that he was being removed because he had threatened the life of his family and himself.
I was Frightened because it could've been ME!! I have spent the last two weeks threatening the life of MY family and MYself.
A few days after coming home from Israel I threw out my back and pinched my sciatic. This means that I have spent the last two weeks crying in pain, crumpled over like an old hag and realizing that putting on underwear without help is a luxury.
On more than one occasion I have threatened physical harm to myself. Something similar to, "Just SHOOT Me NOW!"
And then Sunday when Jeff was having me do 3 sets of 20 sit-ups (in an effort to 'help' me) while shocking pain jolted my butt and legs and then encouraged me to do the same number of leg lifts -- I threatened his life . . . . .
Yes, the neighbor probably needed to have the SWAT team at his house, but they probably should've been removing me from mine too.
Luckily, I'm standing up straight today and ready to start a New Year! I'm safe and the family is still alive (bruised, but alive!)
