A catch up and some sad news!

Never in my wildest dream, did I think it would take me this long to get back to you after my last blog post.

I had it all mapped out. I was going to throw myself over the computer and I was going to dazzle you all with the amount of files decluttered,

Well…. that didn’t happen!

Sadly, my friend B lost his brother right before Easter. His brother passed away on his 71st birthday, after having lost the battle with cancer. Leaving us way to soon ๐Ÿ˜ขย Loosing a family member is never easy, and I can imagine how hard is was on B loosing his sibling. My heart goes out to B and his family.

Just around the same time this was happening, I ran into a bit of a shoulder problem. I don’t know if you remember, but a couple off years ago I had a fall off a ladder. After that fall, my shoulder started to act up. My doctor kept it pretty much in check with a bunch of Cortisone shot last year. But this year however my shoulder went from not good to bad, and around the time B’s brother passed away my shoulder went from bad to worse.

We did an MRI and it was quickly decided that an operation was needed…

Before I went under the knife, B and I had three lovely days in Amsterdam, visiting Keukenhof tulip gardens, doing a canal boat trip and just in general roaming around. Hopefully I’ll be able to post something about that laterย ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s been 2,5 weeks since my shoulder operation and I’m finally able to sit at my computer for all of 5 minutes ๐Ÿ˜† so I’m trying to keep this short for the obvious reasons (most of this was written through my phone).

This is just a quick update on what’s been going on, and why I’ve been offline. Due to shoulder, I might be offline a little longer..

But hey… I’m still here – so I’ll see you when I see you ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

When life gets in the way of.. well.. life!

We have all had this happen to us. We plan things and then things just don’t always go according to plan.

Most of the time we humans operate with a resemblance of a plan in our head. A plan that might or might not stretch a bit into the future. You know, stuff like;ย  a project at work that has to be done by a date, things you need to do at at home, things that involve family or friends. Just plans or intentions in general, for what we’ll be doing the next week, two weeks, month or year.

You start out OK, you get your project underway, you have half of the week behind you and then suddenly life gets in the way of… life… and all your well intended plans goes slightly awry!

Somebody in the neighborhood pops by, asking if you could look after their dog for a couple of days, to avoid the dog being all alone. Your mum suddenly needs to be picket up at the airport. Out of the blue, your neighbor needs your help – cause their bathroom floor is overflowing with water. It snows and you need to clear all the walkways. A person in your Condominium Association wants you to take a look at the building insurance, because he thinks its to expensive – and this “small” request gives you three weeks of work getting new offers, hosting a group meeting, writing up the differences between the offers, sending out emails and currently waiting for the votes to come in on what we want to do…ย  And the list goes on!

Yeah.. all these little extras definitely threw a wrench into my plans… the dog however, such a cutie ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

When life knocks you off your track, there is not much you can do, but to wait until things calm down, and then start from where you left off ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I have very limited time I can sit by the PC (before my headaches gets bad), I had to put my blog and my digital projects on hold, while all the insurance stuff was going on.

Now however, I hope I can get a bit back into it!

John and Barb over at Decluttering the Stuffย  are already knee deep in their digital decluttering, and are running rings around me ๐Ÿ˜‰ But hey, watch out, cause I will catch up ๐Ÿ˜‰

See you around!
