Where Lurks the Gill-Man?

Okay, so both of you who read my blog may have wondered where the h-e-double-hockey-sticks I've been. Yes, once again I have disappeared into my murky lagoon, without hide nor scale to be seen of me. Well, it all comes down to one simple reason: surgery. No, mad scientists did not try to turn this fish-man into an air-breather...I actually had surgery on my spine. For the past year I've had excruciating pains in my lower back and hip, and I've dealt with problems like this off and on for years, so the time had come to take care of this issue.

For the first couple of weeks I just didn't feel like messing with keeping up with my blog, or anything else for that matter. I basically laid around the house, totally lazy (with the exception of my hour long nightly walk that the doctor requires). I'm slowly returning to my old ghastly self, so it seemed time to let y'all know that I still live. In the next few weeks, I plan to begin my Halloween decorations in earnest. The biggest challenge right now is that I cannot lift anything over five pounds, so my kiddos have to assist me with any lifting. This is damned frustrating, as you can imagine.

On the plus side, I've binged on movies the past several weeks, most especially horror flicks. I got re-aquanted with many old horror films I hadn't seen in forever (I especially enjoyed seeing the original version of My Bloody Valentine again. That flick is a slasher that actually holds up pretty well).

Anyhoo, that's all! I'm alive, and still lurking in the shadows underneath your bed!!!
