Where in the World is The Project 3x5…?
Oh, you guys, I am SO embarrassed! Like, really, really embarrassed.
To put it mildly… I feel like y’all are my children, but I got so distracted with something else, that I just kind of fed you Lunchables, Oreos, and Burger King until you all became big old Jelly-rolls and had to be taken away by the State. (Nancy Grace got involved, it was a whole scene. Yikes. You can only imagine…)
Ok, so that might be a slight exaggeration/100% falsification of what’s been going on. First of all, we’re all grownups who figured out that was a metaphor (right?!). Second, it’s not like I haven’t blogged on The Project 3x5 at all in the past few weeks. And lastly, I kinda, sorta had a great excuse what with the implantation of my SCS and all…
BUT! I hate not writing on here properly. My non-generic posts (not to say I don’t put love & thought into all of them) have been far and few between due to the pain of my incision and the difficulty of finding a comfortable place to sit and type. And so, I hate that now I have a million things piled up to say and many that might be too outdated so may never make it up.
Most of all though, I hate that as my friends (that’s each and every one of you!), I just kind of left you in the dark. After all of your well wishes, and all of your prayers, and all of your healing thoughts, and the love that was sent my way… it was the rudest thing of me to not very personally (which is how I’ve chosen to make my blog) keep you in the loop, no matter how I felt.
Not even a picture here, or a grumble there. Next time - should there be one - I will do better. However, until then, just know that there’s a lot to come and that I SO, SO, SO appreciate your patience.
I’m still recovering and unfortunately not as well as I’d have hoped (C’est la vie!), But I am back with a vengeance despite it all, and I could not be happier to be back with all of you :)
All of my love & PLEASE be well -Danielle Alexis.
*Ps: And if you’re still a little bit annoyed at my absence… the picture at the top is me having fallen asleep after ONE bite of a - delicious, no doubt - PBJ sandwich in Rush Hospital Chicago. Ta-Daaah! One sided embarrassment always does the trick at making up, no? And if you weren’t annoyed at me, then just enjoy me looking as though I’m 102 years old. The other picture of Chicago on the left hand side is beautiful and was taken out of my hospital room window at sunrise by my poor mother, who - as always, despite our having a hotel room - ‘slept’ on the chair next to me. I just love, love - don’t you? xx
**Pps: The Californian pictures are of me at the farmer’s market close to my home this Sunday (hey, you gotta get out there if you want to heal, right?! - there’s pain either way! My back is straight though - no bending or twisting) And on the left we have palm trees in Santa Barbara taken back in November. xx
