I have neglected this blog for too long. I know. But it's not like you missed on anything:)) Thankfully there are so many great blogs around - I visit them all the time as they are right there on my blog roll. I am sorry I have neglected commenting on your ever so inspiring blogs - I barely had the energy to read, let alone think of something smart or witty or even nice to comment.
My family is going through some really hard times: my only aunt is slowly losing her fight against a terminal cancer, my Dad needs urgent triple by-pass surgery, my Mom is taking care of her only sister and now worrying for my Dad as well. She also "finds the time" to worry about me. I try to help my aunt, I am spending more time with my parents and I still volunteer at the cat shelter on occasion (less than I would like to). Work has been way too stressful. It's hard keeping everything under control and there were periods when I barely functioned any more. I am now feeling better and am hoping this "down time" lasts for a few more weeks. When I finally came home in the past months, I checked my FB, your blogs and than put on a TV show so I can relax, forget about the day and fall into someone else's drama. A nice movie, a good book or a letter to write, were my medicine. I am now reading Eat Pray Love and I am loving it!!!
I wish I could just sit on the bench under that tree and be totally worry free.
Anyone want to join me?
