Hi, My Name is JG

And I’m a bad blogger.

Honestly, I have a very good excuse. Stuff has just been crazy around here.

Some of it is good. The photography business is good. SoldierMan’s new job is trucking along.

Some of it is not so good. Pre-vacation stress has been at an all-time high. And of course, I got sick. It started as a cold, and thanks to a poorly-handled experiment with saline spray and other various attempts to clear my sinuses, it turned into a full-blown ear infection. Fever, chronic pain, partial deafness and all. I haven’t had an ear infection since I was a kid. This. Is. Miserable. I’m just now coming out on the other side of it, almost. Let me tell you, when I was laying on the couch wanting to drive an ice pick into my own ear with a hammer for even the smallest amount of blessed relief, I wanted to punch in the face anyone who ever let their child have chronic ear infections.

Anyway, everything still sounds weird and I’ve still got a week of the meds. And I’m in the throes of getting ready for vacation. So right now I’m waiting to move some laundry so that I can go to the store and get last-minute emergency supplies, like hair color.

One day I’ll be able to actually sit down and write some good blogs again, let alone read and comment on others. I promise. It may not be till New Year’s. But it will happen.

Meantime, I’m still on twitter and facebook. You’re welcome to find me over there. Hopefully I can have a post here and there for you, but the next several weeks are going to be just as hectic as always. So please be patient and as the man says, I’ll be back!


  1. I hope you feel better and are 100% for the vacation!

  2. I hope you feel better soon!! I just got an ear infection last month for the first time in years and it is miserable!!!

  3. The worst pain I have EVER felt was when I got an ear infection when I was 26. Oh my GOSH was it awful.

    I'm fairly certain I'd opt for labor without meds over another ear infection. The entire side of my head was sore, I couldnt open or close my mouth b/c it hurt, the list goes on.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  4. Ugh...ear pain is some of the worst pain ever!! I had an ear infection a few years ago that ruptured my eardrum...thought I was going to die! I'm so sorry you've been feeling bad :{ But I think I know what will make you feel better...Disney!! Have an awesome time. Can't wait to see pictures :}

  5. :( I hope you feel better soon!

  6. I'm so sorry! That sounds like misery. I hope you are back in the saddle soon. You have to take care of you, and I'm pretty sure we all understand that! In the mean time...go get those emergency supplies :) That did make me smile. And of course, ENJOY your vacation!

  7. Hope you feel better! Have a great vacation!
