Wow…I can’t believe I’ve been away from my blog for so long. Actually, this March I’ve been away from blogging, internet groups, and even most IRL social activities. I’ve been a regular hermit.
We were able to get my father into a good assisted living program shortly after my last post.
It’s so very odd. Writing that sentence seems simple. Cut and dried. Still even now, a couple of weeks later and 300 miles away, I’m still raw about it. Painful? I can’t begin to tell you. To make a long story short: This experience has made me doubt everything I have ever believed about myself. But I was blessed with good advice and kind words from a blogging friend. She had walked in my shoes and shared her experiences with me. Her “voice” in my ear was a great comfort. Thank you, Mia.

If anything will distract you from your own troubles, it’s a household with teenagers. My kids continue to amaze and befuddle me.
I worry constantly about DS going to college. I’m not a bit worried about his classes or his cross-country running or his friends. I’m going bananas because he’s a slob. No…he’s a gross slob. A disgusting slob. And no roommate will put up with that unless he’s as big of a slob as John is. Oh lord, can you even imagine? So I worry.
DD has decided to become a vegetarian. Ordinarily I’d be fine with that, but she’s a distance runner (like her brother) and runners need protein and I just wish to god that she’d eat a freakin’ egg from time to time. Or a cookie.
And finally, here’s my progress on Tree of Life:
That's a crappy picture, but Dave changed some kind of setting on the camera and I'm too lazy to figure it out.
I have another finish, too. One of those JBW French Country designs...what fun! I think I'll just scan that one.
