It has been awhile. Why? I’m not completely sure. In personal areas of my life I’m good. In professional, I’m ok…I’m working on it. I think a lot of the reason is that I’ve started reading books again and found that I had really missed it. Online books make it so easy (and cheap) that I just haven’t stopped reading. My husband gets a bit peeved because I really do just get into them and don’t hear him when he’ll talk to me and he has to say something twice. So I need to work on that. Before that I learned to crochet and have enjoyed that. We also got a different 3 wheel motorcycle and we’re enjoying that immensely. In fact so much that my house is in dire need of cleaning, but between rides, books and crochet I just don’t seem to mind the dust.
I have missed the people I’ve found thru here and, thankfully, some I connect with on FB so that’s enjoyable. But I need to catch up with other folks too. Funny how we think of each other as friends tho most we’ve never met.
My granddaughter is BEYOND adorable. She is almost 3 and we’re so blessed to have her around. She’s a handful, terribly independent, but that just makes me love her more. My daughter and her husband seem happy. My daughter has a few health problems but hopefully those will work out. My mom is still declining and we make and effort to see her at least a couple of times a month. I know that I’ve shut down a part of my brain so that I can accept her decline. That’s very much my nature and what I learned at a young age about death. But she’s in pain, emotionally and physically, so I hate that for her. It must be so difficult to not be able to do what you want to do anymore and to know that, in not such a short time, you will be gone.
I still love my husband, although he’s still a stubborn fool at times. I’ve tried to reason with him over his family issues, but he’s too stubborn (and prideful) to see where I’m coming from, so he will have to figure it all out for himself. I hope it works out in a good way for him.
