a blog.  What would she talk about?  Well, her house was a mess, and clutter had followed her to this place.

She hadn’t thought too much about messes, and clutter, what with all the excitement of Strawberry Grandbaby

Emilia_037being born.  Then the hospital, rehab, and therapy.

But, once she started thinking about it, that’s ALL Strawberry Girl could think about.

She was sick and tired of messes , and clutter.  Ranch Man was working hard, but all he could do is keep up with day to day stuff, feeding and caring for an invalid, semi-invalid, and a baby.

So, Strawberry Girl made up her mind to clean up her own messes, and clutter, and document the process.

She found other blogs that inspired her, so she began.

At first, all she could do is sweep under the high chair.

Then, she would sit down exhausted.  Of course, her fingers weren’t tired!  Just her back, and legs, and arms, so she could write her blog posts.

And so she wrote, and wrote, and wrote.

Strawberry Girl was in the hospital, flat of her back.  Her broken back.

After 5 days, she was moved into a rehab facility for therapy.  It was hard work!  She was in a wheelchair, because it hurt so bad to walk.

Wheel_chairTherapy was not fun.  But she made friends, and was as okay as she possibly could be, considering.

Strawberry Girl realized she would be nearly helpless, once she went home.  So, she decided to beg Ranch Man to forgive her, and come back to her.  Fortunately, he did.

So, now Ranch Man

was doing all the work.  He took care of Strawberry Girl, in her wheelchair, and the Strawberry Grandbaby.  He and the Strawberry Grandbaby went on walks, and he took Strawberry Girl places, with the Strawberry Grandbaby on her lap.

Strawberry Girl was not doing well mentally, so back to the hospital she went, to the Ward again.

And again.  And again.  three times in 12 months, she went back to the Ward.  The nurses, and counselors, and her doctors knew her by name, and told her to “Get well!  Don’t come back here again!”

She began going to weekly counseling sessions.  That helped.

By this time, she had graduated to a walker, instead of the wheelchair.  So, she was able to get around better, and do stuff.

She decided to start…..

Why, yes, that is a hospital gown.  What?  Like you don’t have one.  You don’t?  Really?

I had to wear it home, that time they took me nek-kid to the hospital.  Remember?

I got rid of some stuff outta here, but probably not as much as I should have.  But, you’re not the boss of me.  It’s my house, I can keep whatever I want to.  So there.

I did get rid of the potty bucket.  Yay! 1 thing!  Ah, ah , aa!  (The Count from Sesame Street.  I’m not sure how to spell his laugh.)

And 1 pillow.  Yay! 2 things!

And the empty(!!) cardboard box, under the pillows.  Yay! 3 things.

(Empty box?  Insanity!)

Ok, enough already of the Count.

The empty grapevine wreath, the fake flowers, the red dress, and the cardboard box beside the potty bucket, all went too.

All in all, I’m calling it better than it was!

Oh, you wanted after pictures?  Oopsie!

In Case You Were Wondering…..

The reason I was gone so long was 2 falls in 2 weeks,and, an unrelated to the falls, 5 day hospital stay.

Needless to say, I was busy not feeling well!

But all better now! Unless you count having to use a walker, then… not totally.

(Wheelchair, walker, what’s the diff??  2 wheels and a seat!)

Anyhoo…..

Fortunately for you, my fingers still work fine!! (It’s my Internet connection that fades in and out…)
