Catchin' Up

Sorry, folks. But I'm tired as bat crap tonight. I didn't sleep at all last evening. I don't mean I slept poorly. I mean I didn't sleep, period.

Mrs. B had another go under the knife. And I'm just getting home from the hospital, where I'd been since about 7 this morning.

I'm happy to report that the work she had done wasn't for anything life-threatening, she's doing very well, she should be able to come home in another two or three days, and as far as we can tell she shouldn't need anymore surgeries.

But I didn't write that for sympathy. I just wanted you guys to know I'm not getting lazy with this blog. I'm just tired today.

So I'm taking my dog for a walk in just a moment, and then I'm going to sleep.

BTW, I appreciate all the positive thoughts but if you really want to help me out, comment - if you haven't already - on the previous post. And I'll resume business as usual tomorrow (Tuesday).

That's all for me. I'm outta here like last year.

  • I've already commented on your other post, so I'll wish soothing, healing, happy, loving, pain-free thoughts for Mrs. B.

  • James, to have time to do a blog with all your regular duties is already amazing. Please don't feel the need to apologize to your readers for letting a bunch of hours pass between postings. We'll wait!!

  • Just remember -- flowers and ice cream.

    Everything always feels better with flowers and ice cream.

  • James,

    My first instinct is to inquire as to whether your wife was receiving breast implants. Sorry, that is my nature.

    My second instinct is to express empathy for you.

  • I hope everything continues to go smoothly. If you are going through half of the anxiety that my wife did when I had open heart surgery two summers ago then I'll be thinking about ya!! I'm glad it wasn't life threatening.

  • You are in our prayers as always.

  • Thanks all, and no Matt, it wasn't a cosmetic procedure.

  • Poor guy, I hope that Mrs. B is doing alright and feeling better soon. Have you managed to get the material you were working on for your book to your agent yet?

  • Hey James, we totally understand. Hope you and the Mrs get the rest you deserve.

    By Blogger The Dummy, at 11:57 AM  

  • Hi, hope you're getting good rest, and that Mrs. B is recuperating quickly and easily. Take care - both of you!

  • James - Hang in there! And wish Mrs. B the best.

    Sorry I missed your post - so I thought I'd comment here. I wrote about politics one time on my blog, including the definitions from wikipedia of the two terms here. Just based on those definitions alone, I would be considered a liberal.

    I embrace change and do my best to cast off the paradigms that restrict openmindedness, and believe in looking for continued progress.

    Age: 38 (gulp!)

    I live in Arkansas, but was raised by Texas.

  • I hope Mrs B gets well soon!!!

  • Just remember that you aren't of much use to Mrs. B when you are dog-tired.

    Here's to a speedy recovery!

  • Sending prayers and good vibes out into the world to Mrs. B!

    I second the vote for ice cream, flowers and toss in a great greeting card and she'll be one happy "recouperating" camper.

  • You better post soon.

    (I never know what to say in situations like this)

  • On behalf of Matt at "Animal Mind," I'd like to offer my best wishes for you and your wife.


    By Blogger Matt, at 1:37 PM
