I've been carrying guilt around with me for weeks now.

And it's gone on so long that there is nothing I can do

but throw myself on the floor at your feet and beg forgiveness.

How could I go so long without posting?

I also haven't read your latest blog posts.

I don't even have a good reason.

I've sat here day after day with my foot elevated,

it's been 12 weeks now.

It's not like I'm out standing on my street corner working.
I'm sitting.

In my bedroom.

Watching Memorial Day's "HOARDERS" marathon.

I'm beginning to like the look.

Shame on me.
I'm not even Catholic.

My dog is, but I'm not, so I don't understand why that nun's scowling at me. . . . .

I'm not too busy,

I'm lazy??

It's possible.

All I know is that I'm sorry.

Please forgive me?

Yours in scum, Jan

Hahahaha! You are TOO cute! Raise from your knees my child, you are forgiven!

Have a lovely week.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

PS Do you not think we've all been there before! Chuckle!

Fanciful Expressions said...

You are forgiven my friend. I haven't done any posting either. Nor do I have any reason. Just nothin' to say I guess.
Glad to know that you're taking care of that foot.

A Vintage Chic said...

Hilarious, Jan! Love those shaming photos--perfect! Hey, we all need a break once in a while!

Hope you have a beautiful guilt-free day!


Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

At least it's time well spent! ;-)

Kim said...

Don't be silly! Just glad to have you back!

Diva Kreszl said...

I'm just tickled pink that you're still here! hope you are recovering sweetie, we miss you!

Meri Wiley said...

Arise oh wicked one (as I slap you on the forhead) ye shall be healed!

Don't get too dramatic now, besides I haven't done any of that either, but then I did have a good reason........I had a craft show and a wedding to contend with. With my disabilities both were equally taxing, and yet here I am today.........totally burned out!

Take care of the foot and don't worry about anything, except.........putting said foot in mouth!

Rest up, we'll wait for you!


Kelly Lish said...

You are soooo cute and your post made me laugh out loud-Blog land is so full of love that there is no way you would not be forgiven!
Thanks for the smile!

alteredstatesstudio said...

now who could resist that puppy face? your pics are so darn funny- the nun is killing me!! i am just glad to hear that the worst case is that maybe you like the show hoarders...and that nothing else had happened to you or your foot!! all is forgiven you silly goose!!

Debby said...

LOL...I am so happy to read a post from you, you were starting to worry me, but sounds like all it well.

gypsysticks said...

So glad to know all is well. please cast all that guilt in the trash can where it belongs. Today is a new day!
blessings and happiness...

Lynn Stevens said...

no worries!

Paula Clare said...

Dearest Jan,
How could I NOT forgive with such adorable photos?!? are blogging with NO OBLIGATION, remember? Only when you want, HOW you want...dig? So no guilt allowed! The picture of the "Brown Nun" made me laugh...I always think those of us who are so easily riddled with guilt are either Catholic or Regardless, all is forgiven...and now, back to the TV, yes?!

Lynn Richards said...

Ummm, how do you know the dog is Catholic? I watched two episodes of the Hoarder's show. Fascinating!!! Horrible!!! Fascinating!!!!

I can't imagine having much to say after having your foot up for 12 WEEKS, let alone 12 days. Unbelieveable. I still think you need a medal...

Nancy's Notes said...

Oh Jan, that post made my day!! Just way too cute!

I'll be back!!

By the way, no quilt in blogland.

Charlene said...

I came back to check on you & to see how that foot is doing. See you are still OFF that foot. I would think so with all of the stuff they did to it! POOR THING! Will you be ready by Paper Cowgirls? I just took 2 classes is all. But, I plan to be there Thursday night & of course all day Saturday (classes) & vendor night. Can't wait to meet you. TAKE CARE & DON'T PUSH IT! Charlene


I got a good chuckle out of your post. Is your dog a good Catholic?

At any rate, I guess this means 20 lashes with a wet noodle for you, LOL. I hope your foot is healing well. I know it is a drag. Watching hoarders is like a train wreck. You just can't look away.

We've missed you, my dear. :D

Smiles to you,

Angela Rae said...

Jan, Jan, Jan (to the tone of Marsha, Marsha Marsha)!!!

You're so funny! If you're apologizing for not blogging for a few weeks? months? I need to apologize for not blogging for 2+ YEARS!!! ha ha! There's been a couple of posts, but not many! I'M DONE WITH SCHOOL!!!!! On June 7th I start my 8 weeks of INTERNSHIP and then I sit to take the REGISTRY, so I'm a Registered X-Ray Technologist! Sooo... I'm not out of the woods just yet, but done with all the classroom stuff and it feels so good!

How is the leg, ankle, foot coming along? Healing nicely????? I hope so!

Take care and have a good weekend!

Nancy said...

My verdict....... NOT GUILTY! I know what it is like to get in a rut, daze, funk, drunkin' stupor (well not that), or just plain lazy craze!!! I think it is some kind of survival tool. I have been trying to snap out of my daze for quite some time now. You are in good company Janny girl!!! Draggin' that foot around would certainly slow my pace.

A mess of hugs to you!!!


Grandma Yellow Hair said...

How funny and so are your comments left by everyone. Especially Ms Marydon Ford she always leaves the best comments. lol
Hope your doing better
Take care

Bettyann said...

Network Support Melbourne said...

The dog is so cute. Look at his face really adorable. No need to apologize there are times when you just don't feel like doing what you usually do. It's normal I guess.

Holly said...

I am new over here...but some days are just like that...and how can you take your eyes off of Hoarders...and a marathon at that!

debsea said...

i haven't been doing the blog either, we both are emerging at the same time. and i don't even have a foot to blame.
i hope you are mending nicely, because i'm counting on you to tell me all about that whole paper cowgirl extravaganza!

Kathy said...

It must be catchy? I am a blog neglector too. I do miss seeing you on FB....come back!!!!!

Diana said...

Too funny! I watched the Hoarders marathon too and then my husband got sucked in. I noticed we both got up on comercials to clean. :-)

My Crafty Little Page said...

Oh dear Jan - I hope you are healing and have been able to get back to your job on the street! Really - I do sympathize - I broke two toes on my left foot the day before I had a total knee replacement on my right knee. I was beyond miserable. Just wanted to stop by and tell you I'm looking forward to seeing you at PC this year. I'm so excited - it feels like going to camp once a year to see all my old camper friends from the summer before...except we don't have to hike to the bathrooms or go canoeing! See you soon! xoxo Nancy

Yaya Chique said...

Okay...I am writing this in June and this post was done in May? Guess you are still "laid up". :) Hope you are doing well and will be back in the saddle soon! xo..deb

carylsrealm said...

I stop by your blog, to see if we can touch base, and I see you are going to be leaving me. Sure I just get back, and now you are leaving. Go ahead and have you fun without me. Just try. Who's riding sidekick? Hmmm? Who's your co-pilot? Anyone as good looking as this Thelma? Miss ya!

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Girl, I had soo much fun w/ you! Loved giving you a hard time & can't wait to do it again. You were every bit the hoot I expected you to be...but stay out of trouble, why don'tcha? ;o)

Robin said...

Don't dogs make the BEST catholics!!!

Love you neighbor! I swear this summer you (and Baxter) may find me moseying up your driveway... I swear! I might even bring the next best catholic dog, my Sandy girl, with me!!

Hope you are well and your foot is healing--don't make me turn all Augra on your ass and get my herbs out--cause I will and you won't be able to stop me cause YOU'RE A GIMP!!!

Angie said...

Thank you so much for posting the way you do. I see your blog roll my way from time to time. Love your way of "being" and find it strange crying over something you're going through not even knowing you! (Thankful for the laughs as well).
We had a little ferrel kitten show up at the house last week. Injuries and scars, wouldn't let anyone get near him.
This week, after feeding and loving, he never met a stranger he didn't love.
Will just strike that up to Mr. Ben above putting a little love into the world.

Big hug.

tara said...

Here's hoping your feet is better.
Sunday Blessings ;-)

June said...

Jan I can tell already that I am gonna love you! Your post is hilarious and I LOVE FUNNY! I'm hilarious too, only I'm not on my blog, but in real life...I am funny! So here's to funny folks and here's to making a new friend!!!!

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Oh scummy one,
I am scum too, as I have been planning on emailing you for weeks now & life just keeps getting in the way. I used some of the organza ribbon I bought from you & thought' oh I miss Jan, I need to say hi'. I had a blast meeting you in the flesh & keeping you as a member of the T&T sweatshop. What a pricer you are! I think the fabric you asked about was the scrim (much nicer cheesecloth) & organza. I copied photos onto muslin & burned organza. You can also copy images onto crinoline fabric. Get it at Hancock or Joann's, cut the size of copy paper & feed it thru the printer. It makes beautiful prints, kind of ghostly. Email me if this isn't right. Miss U! Lisa

Pretty Things said...

LOL, too funny! I hope you come back SOOOON!

Melissa G. said...

I wasn't going to forgive you until i saw that puppy at the end! =)
You don't have to feel guilty, it's your blog and you can post when you want. We'll still be here.
