First Time Blogger Here!
This is Stephanie….Robyn’s long time friend by marriage. She got me by default when I married Jeff. She IS the best thing that came with him and I love her dearly! Although Robyn and I do have a few different interests, most of them parallel each other strongly. We both love animals, sharing smutty romance novels, Taco Bell, trips to Target together planned strategically around our afternoon naps, a few hours watching movies together and lots, lots more. However, one thing we do not have in common is blogging. I read a couple of blogs, including Robyn’s, but have never developed an interest in actually blogging. So, when Robyn asked me to guest blog a couple of weeks ago when she had her back surgery, I agreed, reluctantly, unbeknownst to her. I couldn’t say no to her. It was the least I could do. It’s THAT important to her. But, I admit I have been procrastinating hoping she wouldn’t notice that I have not blogged and that I would be off the hook. No such luck! She called me first thing Sunday morning and requested again that I blog for her. So I lay awake last night thinking about what I would write about and what kind of blogging faux pas I would inevitably come up with to offend one or two of her followers. Or I guess I should say “readers” as “followers” make us sound as if we belong to a cult lead by Robyn. See! That is exactly the type of faux pas I am talking about.
Robyn is doing great by the way. She has come a long way from almost two weeks ago when I saw her the day after her surgery. I have to admit, I was a little scared for her that first day. It was very hard to see her in so much pain with all kinds of “stuff” sticking out of her. I didn’t know that kind of stuff would make me as queezy as it did! I really didn’t expect it would be as “major” as it was. I was blow drying her hair the other day and saw her stitches. Yikes! Another bout of light headedness for me. But, day by day, she has gotten a little more mobile and is starting to get around more confidently. I don’t expect she will be back to herself any time real soon, but there is light at the end of the tunnel and that’s a good thing. Until then, I will keep doing her laundry, scrubbing her bath room and kitchen, stuffing her mouth with baked goods, lying on the couch watching movies and discussing our smutty romance novels. By the way, none of these are chores…..any time I get to spend with Robyn is time I enjoy!
(Fork me some of that!) You can blog about that when you come back Robyn!
