A new excuse

A few days ago, I gave myself an excused absence from posting.  I now have a new excuse. I have shingles. I started on anti-viral meds fairly early in the course of things, so, while I am uncomfortable and not sleeping well, I am not having the extreme pain that I have heard others describe. My family is taking over nearly all the holiday prep and chores. I did manage to address envelopes for holiday greetings to go in the mail today…

Addendum:  I have been participating in Linda’s One-Liner Wednesday and Stream of Consciousness Saturday posts regularly – until the last few weeks when things have been pretty hectic. I didn’t even look at the prompt this Friday, but, in reviewing some of the blogs I follow by email this morning, I realized that I had inadvertently posted on the SoCS prompt this week because the prompt was “excuse.” So I am adding this explanation and message and adding the link to create the pingback to Linda’s blog. http://lindaghill.com/2014/12/19/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-december-1914/  Not bothering with the badge, though…

  1. I’m so glad your family is helping. I have a co-worker who’s 99% recovered from shingles. What a challenge! Sending healing love to you that you will be well soon. Rest and enjoy the moments of happiness and peace that come as you recover.


    1. Thanks, JoAnne! My last day of antivirals is today and I am definitely on the mend. There may be some discomfort over the next couple of weeks, but I know that I am so much better off than others I have known who have had shingles. With luck, I’ll get a new post up later today with an update. Merry Christmas!
