February 2, 2011

I suppose one or two people are wondering why the artist/housewife hasn't written much lately.

Well, not much art being produced.

Not much housewifery going on. Yeah, I finally got those Christmas trees down, but instead of cleaning up what they left behind and filling up those bare corners, I've done nothing.

What I have done: had several blood tests, peed into a large jar for medical inpsection and had yet another CT scan. Tomorrow, weather permitting, I get to drive an hour each way to see the doc. and see if I have something cancerous attached to my adrenal gland. Something IS attached to one of my adrenal glands, we just have to see if its growing.

School has been out for two days. I haven't been very creative in entertaining the child. At least she likes to read. I've been on the computer looking at real estate in other places. Cities. Mmmmmmm. Coffee shops and bookstores and ART GALLERIES. Yeah, like I'm going anywhere.

Frankly, I feel like I'm going to explode. But everything here is so slow and dull, it would be an explosion in slow motion. Very slow motion. It would take hours just for my bits and pieces to splatter on the walls.

So, just in case you wanted to know . . . now you know.

Yeah, I know its only Wednesday, but I'm already hoping for a better week next week.

Send jokes.


  1. this is awful ...first joke i found:
    An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in his paintings on display at that time.

    "I have good news and bad news," the owner replied. "The good news is that a gentleman enquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all 15 of your paintings."

    "That's wonderful," the artist exclaimed. "What's the bad news?"
    "The guy was your doctor..."

    having said that.
    YOUR DOCTOR IS GOING TO GIVE YOU A BILL OF HEALTH. whatever it is that is clinging to your adrenal gland GET OFF AND DISSOLVE NOW! fingers crossed!!!

  2. You've had a lot to deal with - this 'thing' on your adrenals (which itself could be making you feel tired and depressed, right?), your mom dying, and of course winter in snowy, removed, central PA. Be GOOD to yourself. The xmas tree needles and detritis will eventually get picked up, and spring will come. Thinking of you - - best wishes with the appointments.

  3. A penguin walks into a bar and says to the bartender. "Have you seen my brother?" The bartender says. "What does he look like?"

    Why didn't the lifesaver rescue the hippy?
    He was too far out man.

  4. Sorries, Miss J has no jokes. Just empathy, lots and lots of empathy. And hopes for a better week for you.

  5. So this blonde goes to buy a pizza. After ordering, the assistant asks her if she'd like it cut into six pieces or twelve.
    "Six, please," she said. "I could never eat twelve."

    (sorry, but you did ask)
    Aaaaaaaaanyway....I'm sending good energy up there.
