The Siege is Over…Finally

It’s been a long road to recovery but I’m finally out of bed and beginning to return to my normal life and activities (which includes blogging, of course). The little orphan virus I managed to catch was obviously happy to live in my body for more than three weeks before it decided to move on to greener pastures. I kept thinking that I’d feel better after 7-10 days (at least that’s what the doctor promised) but obviously my virus was one stubborn group of germs. Anyway, I know it will take a while to regain my strength (I continue to feel easily fatigued and afternoon naps are still a part of my recovery) but at least I now know that the sun does shine and it feels wonderful to finally leave the house and enjoy this warm autumn weather.

I know I have a lot of catch-up to do in terms of your lives and blogs. I felt totally cut off from the real world while I was sick but I just couldn’t seem to find the energy to turn on my computer to read your posts. So now I have lots of reading to do as I return to BlogLand with a vengeance. Please be patient as I read through all your posts and then comment on what’s been happening. And most of all…thanks for all your well wishes while I was “gone.” I truly feel blessed to have such wonderful friends.

'm so glad to hear from you again. In fact, yesterday I was reading the comments on your last post, then reading the blogs of the commenters to see if anyone had heard from you!
Glad you're starting to feel better.

Soooo good to hear that you're starting to feel so much better, you truly were missed! I'm hoping the cold bug I've got in me at the moment doesn't end up as stubborn as yours was!!! You take good care of yourself and recover fully! xox

So very glad you are back...I checked on you a lot. My life is boring so don't worry about catch up because there will be more boredom today and tomorrow.

I'm so glad you're back. I have missed you. Life has not been boring, but it always better when my friends are feeling better.

Missed your prose. Please get better soon. As I said to Lynn, you are one of the Bayside Girls (plural), so am anticipating more posts...
