My week: call off the suicide watch

It seems I freaked people out a little on Friday with a blog called “I have no core strength”. They took it as a cry for help. And it was … for my abs.

My sacrum has been playing up again following my double-handed baby chook splits injury (aggrevated by my bush turkey gardening injury), and the physio explained to me – as nicely as possible – that it would help if I built up my core strength, ie didn’t slouch around with my gut hanging out.

When I said:

I am trying to zip up my core.

And keep it zipped.

All. The. Time.

It’s so bloody hard.

Does it get any easier?

This is not a metaphor.

I meant it.

Yes, the past six months have had their freaking awful moments, but I’m not wobbly … right now … except in the spare tyre region.

But it’s lovely to know you care about my core, both muscular and metaphysical.

I wondered if this was Our Last Santa Visit. 

I yelled a lot at a stranger and blogged about it in a post called Going Postal.

And I bitched about the hell of your kids being on holidays when you’re not in What holiday???

Over at iVillage:

This was my favourite story of the week …

How could anyone be depressed with Katy Perry in the world? Yep, that’s what they called it …

I also loved these stories …
