Unexplained Absence

Yes, I know…excluding pictures we have dropped off the blogosphere.  And even our pictures have been absent some weeks.

Why?  Life.  And more precisely me.  Without getting into a lot of details, I pulled a muscle about two years ago that decided to start being a nuisance last October and by April had sidelined me from almost everything.  Apparently when I was nursing the pulled muscle, I changed my stance and messed up my back.  When that happened, I stopped moving which messed up my piriformis and all hell broke loose.

I had to stop just about everything that I love doing and just recover.  No dance.  No weight lifting.  Play was pretty much out of the question.  It sucked.  It beyond sucked.  I stopped feeling like me because I couldn’t do what made me “me.”  Snake has done so much and put up with so much, particularly raging, that he deserves a medal.

BUT…slowly, I am getting back into stuff.  We are dancing again and have a performance next month.  I am getting back to weight lifting and even got to use the “big girl plates” for the first time yesterday.   I can function again which was just the barest glimmer of hope in June.

And we are starting to be able to play again.  Not where we were, but I can now see that we can get there.  And I want to get there, which wasn’t even on my radar when everything hurt.

So, we will be back blogging soon.  And I just wanted to tell my amazing husband thank you for being there and being my support and my cheerleader and my coach.  I love you ❤

Sinful Sunday #103 — Textures

There are times when the vision and the picture work like magic.  You set up, take the shot and it’s ready to go.  Snake had a vision of different textures that he was trying to get.  After moving two cats, changing clothes, changing angles and about a gazillion shots, I think he finally got it… This stuff is a lot of work sometimes.  And I know how much he hates taking pictures of me 🙂
