I've been absent a while - sorry about that. I got sick again with Diverticulitis - but that's boring to talk about. Let's not mention that D word again.
Except to say that since the only position I was slightly comfortable in was flat on my back. This put me in bed for 2 weeks, which gave me lots of time to get obsessed with police shows. They are on all the time, has anyone noticed this? I got hooked...it was like police drama crack. I was jonesing for more for the half hour that they were not on.
The downside to this is that at night my mind went bananas. First of all I couldn't sleep because of the pain, so I was up at 1am watching Criminal Minds, which is a really freaky show. There are some messed up people out there! Poor Sean in the meantime got really good at falling asleep with pillows over his ears. I really should take a picture of it.
Anyway, the show would freak me out so much that I would walk around the house and quadruple check that the windows and doors were locked up. Which is really silly because if I learned anything from these shows it's that if the bad guys really want to get to you they can - doors mean nothing to these hulk like psychopaths. Have I mentioned before that I was raised in a home where anxiety wafted through the air like oxygen? No? Well maybe that explains a thing or two.
One night Sean the superhero saint took the boys on a backyard camp out. Big tent set up and all. They boys were thrilled (minus a little drama by my youngest as to whether or not he wanted to sleep in the tent. First yes, then no, then yes, then no, then yes. He settled in the tent around 11). Of course I was alone in the house but stayed awake until about 4 so I could hear any attempted massacre that took place in the backyard. I had completely prepared myself for the gruesome scenario and how I would defend my family with the mighty dog that is Sam. In my mind I was invincible and had the power to defeat any Freddy Kruger or Jason that would appear in the night and dare to attack my family.
Seriously. This is not healthy.
Finally I fell asleep and decided it may be time to cut back on the police show dramas. Maybe.
Really, with my overactive imagination, I should only be allowed to watch My Little Pony or something equally fluffy. Although there are certain horrors associated with these shows too, but I won't get into that now.
So that's me in a nutshell. And how are you?
