What do you bring to a pity-party? Aka “Uh-oh, she’s back.” #RRBC #RWISA


This is your official invitation to the pity-party I’m having, right here and right now!

I’m home again after another sixteen day stay in hospital. That makes four long stays in Hospital this year. I’m pleased to be home again.  I’ve been scrambling around my head trying to find a way to ease myself back into my online world. I’ve been absent (Again) for a few weeks, and yesterday I discovered myself settling into self-pity mode.  That’s never a good look. So I decided to just throw a pity-party and get myself the hell over it. Groan. So let’s get this party started.

Cue intro music,  “Another one Bites The Dust,” by Queen and drape the party-scene in colors of purple and blue.

Menu; Serve Cold. Smörgåsbord

Pity Pork Pie.

The Coldest Cuts possible.

Helpless Hash Browns.

Morose Meringue

Sides available.

A We all know what realy happened to ‘Caesar’ Salad and a platter of Overwhelmed Artichokes.

Depressed Dijon Mustard.

Bar service: Help yourself to your favorite poison, if you’ll pardon the expression.

Party-games.  You already know this isn’t gonna be pretty.

Russian Roulette The old fashioned way.  (I warned you)


Blend all the above, and place 911 on auto-redial.

I’m working on my way out of a downward mood spiral, my friends, but it may take a little while longer this time around. Meanwhile I’ll start searching for things I can laugh at, and maybe laughing at myself is a good place to start.

In the interim please send a virtual kick in the butt in my direction.

Thank you all for making the time to stop by.

I’ll be catching up with you all over the next few days.

  1. I love Queen and this song, but not nearly as much as I love you, Soooz. You are a warrior woman, but even warriors need to stop and reflect once in a while. I would never dream of kicking your butt. Instead, I’m sending the BIGGEST virtual hug in your direction. Miss you, sweet lady. I hope you feel better ASAP.

    1. ❤Eden my lovely friend, where have the years disappeared to? It seems a lifetime of laughter and shared experiences ago since we last mused together about love and other bruises. I’ll accept that virtual hug and return it with pleasure. As for me being a warrior woman …lol…I always fancied myself in a black leather uniform. 😂😎


  2. Sixteen days stay is quite long and it was your fourth long stay in the hospital, sorry to hear that, Soooz. You need to recover from the hospital stay, hope you feel better very soon. I had my share so I know how it goes. Wishing you the best!

      1. My darling daughter has also been my live-in carer for a few years now. She and my beautiful seven year old grandson always give me reasons to stay positive.❤

  3. I am so sorry to learn of your health problems, Suzanne. Poor health is difficult to cope with and I can understand your mood of despondency. I hope expressing yourself in this entertaining and fun way has given you a bit of a boost.

    1. 😊Thanks, Roberta. I have always found laughter shared with friends to be one of the very best recovery tools in my arsenal. I appreciate you stopping by.


  4. I’m sorry to hear about your hospital stay and health issues but am glad you’re still fighting the good fight. Please take time to rest and reflect but always keep your chin up, warrior woman! Sending you big Florida hugs for a speedy recovery! 😀

    1. ❤Those marvelous hugs are accepted and returned with my love and thanks, Denise. I have to admit I had fun writing this post. Macabre little beastie that I am.😂😎


  6. Well, you are out which is a good thing. A lot of us care about you (which is another good thing) I need to remind you that it is hard to play Russian roulette with a Glock 9mm. So put that thing down, take this margarita and slide over. It’s party time.

    1. lol … Be grateful I used Russian Roulette as the party game, amigo. I actually considered strip poker there for a while but decided I simply couldn’t do that to my sighted friends. The margarita tastes brilliant, mate.👌

  7. I say we kick butt on the pity party and turn it into a your-friends-are-all-concerned-and-wish-they-could-help-you-recovery party. Dang! Whenever you go offline for a while I worry about you. I know the hospital routine has to be getting old. Really old.I am so sorry Soooz. Even the strongest of us needs a down moment now and again. Even then you did it with humor and a toughness I envy.

    I am thankful you are now at home. Please take care and do whatever the doctors tell you to recover.Sending you mega hugs!!!!

  8. Hi, Suzanne! What you’re going through is perfectly normal. Take it one day at a time, my friend. I hope you have a swift recovery. We’ll all be right here when you get back and are up to it. BTW, this post tickled me, you’re so creative. Hugs and kisses! ❤

  9. ❤Huga and kisses back atcha, my friend. I’m enjoying adding new music to my pity party playlist. I think Billy Joel’s ‘Only the Good Die Young.’ is a leading contender. 😂

  10. Oh, Soooz. I am SO sorry that you have to struggle so hard. Humor most certainly help. That and lots of love from friends – and you have a plethora of those! Sending light and love your way and hope that today is a better day and that tomorrow outshines it! Hugs!

  11. What better way to get back into blogging than with some humor. You’re a riot. I’ve been away from blogging too, Suzanne, and it is hard to make the leap back in – so nothing strange about that. It takes a lot of energy and time and can feel overwhelming. But, what I’ve learned is that we put the pressure on ourselves. This wonderful community is welcoming of whatever (whenever) we have to give. I hope your hospital visits are over and done with. I wish you much good health and laughter.


    1. 😊Thanks, Diane. My dark humor helps me maintain my sense of balance when the real world heads into an oxygen deprived free-fall. I never have learned how to pronounce the words ‘give up’ xo

  12. So sorry to hear of your health problems Soooz. You have been through so much. Lovely though that your sense of humour is still intact despite it all. They say a problem shared is a problem halved so hoping your issues have been halved many times over. Sending you many virtual hugs across the ditch and may you be well as you look forward to spring. xoxo

  13. Oh my, Soooz… with your humour and tenacity of spirit and will, you’re going to kick this to the curb. Again. You’ve surely endured your fair share of struggles. You’re a warrior, my friend. Sending you positive thoughts and huge (((hugs))) across the miles. XO

    1. Those huge hugs are accepted and returned with my love and thanks for your ongoing support, Natalie. I guess I just never learned how to roll over and play dead.😎❤
