So it’s been sometime since I wrote my last post – two days. That’s not very long ago, granted, and I wouldn’t have been writing this but for the recent spate of bad luck that has messed up my schedule a bit. It invariably means that my posts will get held up some more. So I thought I’d better inform you all about why there’s radio silence on my end.
It’s because of two clunkers in my life, both of which decided to descend upon me at the same time. The first clunker is my old faithful – my laptop, which decided to die on me, JLT. I have no idea why! This has undeniably soured my mood, specially because Husband Dearest (hope he’s reading this) won’t lend me his swanky laptop and won’t stop hogging the desktop (see how greedy men can be when it comes to electronics?). I have no choice but to wait till my laptop is repaired or, worse still and God forbid, I have to buy a new one.
Then there’s the other clunker – my knee, that just won’t let me be. You see, a couple of months back I injured myself running on the treadmill and was diagnosed with chondromalacia patella, which roughly translates to a weak knee cartilage, which required me to abandon half of the activities that normal people undertake in life – running, squatting, kneeling, sitting cross-legged or with my legs dangling, walking briskly, walking, in fact, whatnot. Basically, I felt like I had aged 30 years or more in the span of those 3 months that I had this excruciating pain! Physiotherapy returned me to health very, very slowly, but essentially this problem will never go away, and on some days, it just… well, gets back to being a clunker. Like for the past 2 days.
Therefore, my apologies to you all for being MIA, especially to readers of the new Novella – This is not a Love Story. I’m trying to get back in shape ASAP because I really hate being bed ridden. But in the meantime you could visit my old blogs. There’s plenty to read beginning from how all this began 😊
Please pray that my old clunker sputters back to life. I really love it and don’t want to invest in another laptop. And if you have any info to share on knee problems, you know where to find me.
