An Updated Update

I have had so many e-mails asking why I have not done a post in so long, as well as colleagues stopping me in the hall asking the same question.  I didn't realise I had followers out there that are unregistered or silent but follow the goings-on of Menagerie Manor.  So here is a short update........
You may remember that MeMa fell while playing soccer with "Little Terrorist #2", Brooklyn and broke her wrist.  Last Thursday she had surgery to put in a plate with six screws as the wrist was not healing properly. She could not keep down the pain medication so had to go that road without.  I can't imagine how she did it as I would have been a bawling baby.  She returns in two weeks to get a permanent cast put on which should make mobility a little easier.  She is a very stubborn lady and tries to do everything for herself but has finally resigned herself (sort of) to the fact that she does need help even with the simplest things.  We have been blest with  a good friend living with us several days a week who helps out at home as well as driving MeMa to work and errands.  Today they are going to the Care center to visit MeMa's father and hopefully play a game of Cribbage with him.  It is times like these that remind one how precious ones partnership is, and I am truly thankful for mine.  We go through our daily routines accomplishing life's tasks together and most of the time don't realise the impact if that balance is upset by events which are out of our control.  So I would like to take a moment and thank my partner in life, also one of my aforementioned silent followers and tell her just how much I love her.  I have always appreciated the power she goes through life with, the devotion to home and family and the love she sheds on all of us.  So my love, just face the fact that this (although unscheduled) is a time to sit back and be pampered a little.


  1. I want one of you! Do you have a gay brother? :)

  2. *hugs*
    I really hope MeMa starts healing soon!

  3. Grouchy,
    Too funny, yes I do but he and his partner have been together for a very long time. And you would have to relocate to Arizona.....HOT!

    It is hard to hold the wind still but I think she is on the mend.
