Liar Liar

14 Feb

When thinking about writing this week, absolutely nothing came to mind. Nada, zilch, zero. I tried, pondered, came across some options and dismissed them. Basically I’m lying and I’m trying to keep it hidden. Pants on fire and all that.


Hanging out with Luna.

I am still recovering from a fall. I wrote about it in a blog two weeks ago and failed to share that it was more than a sprained ankle.


I have hardly been out of the house.

I returned to the doctor with groin pain and an x-ray revealed a compressed pubic bone. The doctor prescribed six weeks of rest, reposo. I’m not good at reposo.


Landscaping along the Laguna.

So when I went to write this week’s blog entry, I had no pithy story or philosophical awareness to share. The truth is, I’m embarrassed. I guess I think you won’t hang with me if I’m not entertaining or profound. Super woman I am not. No sympathy please. My body is healing. I’m trying not to take the pain personal and instead be grateful. Hope you have a great week. Mine will be, because I said so!

    You constantly inspire me. My wife and I just moved to Bossier City from Austin. I’m retired Coast Guard and 100% DV, but blessed to still be able to get around decent with a cane, just poor memory from head trauma. We are planning on her retiring in 6-7 years and we’re going to do some around the world travelling, but fairly certain we’ll spend at least part of the year in Mexico. We checked out Mahahual 18 months ago and this summer we’re extending a family vacation to Playa del Carmen to spend a few days in the road to check out Progresso, Meridia and Bacalar. Bacalar solely because I found your blog and can’t get it out of my mind. If it’s half of what I picture it, it’s going to give our current front runner, Guanajuato a run for its money. So while you’re laid up resting and not feeling very “inspirational” know that this retired combat vet looks forward to the email with your blog ever Sunday and my wife and I enjoy it together. Thanks and perhaps I can repay the these of y’all with lunch when we’re down that way in August.

      Sorry you are in pain and must rest. Take delight in your lovely view. Maybe learn to draw?

      Hello Tom, thank you for your service. Lisa as well is 100%. When I started this blog, I announced that the process was for ME and if anyone else read it, icing on the cupcake. Another lie! I get a real charge out of hearing from followers, esp ones that I didn’t know about. Your kind words brought a tear. We would love to have lunch with you in August and show you the town which will take about ten minutes. Life is VERY quiet here. Please stay in touch.

    Interesting, this business of being profound and entertaining–it’s wearying (is that a word) isn’t it? Hmmmm! Give me a call if you’re bored. I’m working from home all week. ((())) Hugs!

      Most of the things I share just come to me. Trying is futile. I have had horrible skype usage this week. Will try calling.

    Alex, your writing is beautiful. I so enjoy hearing about you two, as well as Luna and Lisa’s Mom. And your property…just stunning. Keep writing no matter what. Holding the high watch for you and your speedy recovery!
