I'm Back (Sort Of)

Let's see, my last post was in January? Sheesh! I do apologize, but I've got my reasons. Both parents were in the hospital for different reasons, beginning December 26th. Mom finally came home shortly after New Year's Day. Then there were weeks of doctor's appointments and chemotherapy and lots of tests and scans, all of which kept me away from my work. Then they both ended up BACK in the hospital at the same time again for different reasons. Unfortunately, Mom did not come home this time and she passed away on March 31st. Dad is fine physically but it's going to take some time for him to adjust to living without her.

So, I am slowly coming out of my self-imposed hibernation and will soon regale you tales of the twins, the new baby that's on the way, Ariel becoming a teenager, T-man getting his degree and all the goodies I have up my sleeve. Please be patient. I still feel like I'm full of nothing but raw nerves, kind of like the butterfly emerging from the cocoon up there. Before you know it the posting will be back and so will I. Keep on beading on!

Sorry about your Mom. Blogging is not a priority now! Take care of yourself.

Thank you, Mary. My priority has become living and enjoying life! And since I love what I do for a living, it might be easier than I thought.

So sorry about your mom and dad. I hope he will adjust. I guess it just depends on the person.

You take care and get all the rest you can. You've had a tramatic few months and just don't take a chance on getting run down and sick! Glad you posted. Don't worry, we'll all be here until you post again, patiently waiting.
xx, Carol

Thanks, Carol. I think Dad will be okay with time. And I'm making sure I take care of me, definitely!
