I am sad because...

lying in hospital with screws in my flesh to keep my broken leg in place until the swelling goes back for final surgery just is not fun.

Where is the rewind button for my life?

I cannot sleep here and i keep dreaming of that moment when my foot pointed backwards.

Wait wait what? What happened?
*Finds German thread.*
Argh, I should have started working on the on-line course German I paid for.
Eph, it seems you can finally start to work toward walking now? Good luck! I'm glad your leg seemed to have healed okay, my father wasn't that lucky a few years ago. :( Get well soon!
I'm sorry I disappeared for so long (again), some stuff happened, yada yada not really important, except that Vlegel and Muis are doing well!

Aw, so good to hear from you again! *virtual hug although I know you don't like that* ;D

Yes, it's 7 weeks after the second surgery and I can finally start to exercise some walking. I'm allowed to put 50kg of strain on my leg now and by the end of next week I'm officially allowed to try walking without crutches.
There are two steel plates and almost a dozen screws in my leg and the last x-ray looked very good. Pain is getting less and less almost daily now - finally, as no pain killer worked and I suffered really a lot.
I'm still trying to catch some of the sleep I missed in the last 2 months (a truckload of it!) but decided that next week I'll try to work on the website again. I need some distraction from the fact that my husband's work contract ends in 1.5 months. -_- All I can do is proofread his job applications - even the housework is still totally on his shoulders due to my darn leg.

Glad to hear your pets are fine. ^^

's Okay, virtual hugs don't get on my nerves. :P

I'm so glad it heals okay! Good luck to your husband!

I got reason to be sad because a parcel has disappeared and I don't think I can trust the sender to get after it even though it's their responsibility. I don't care about the money (it wasn't much) but the books are relatively hard to find.
Also, the storytellers of the past had no idea how much sexual assault they put into their stories. Not to mention the huge amounts of racism and sexism. Old stories can be amazing, but you have to wade trough 20 others who make you lose your faith in humanity.

(Don't know how I missed this post back then but I wholeheartedly agree with your viewpoint on sexual assault, although imho modern storytellers often seem to know but still not care.)

I'm sad because David Bowie is dead.
2016 starts out really bad, first Lemmy Kilminster (although I'm not a fan of his music, but he was an astoundishing character and my husband was a fan) and now Bowie.

Nooooo! Alan Rickman died too!
And in the same way as Bowie - 69 years old and died of cancer.

I'm devastated. I loved so many of his movies... Harry Potter, Sweeny Todd, Dogma, The Transporter... :(
