I’ve had a number of people ask me recently, “what happened to the blog”. Well, life happened. A few months ago I talked about feeling at loose ends. With both parents gone I suddenly had no idea what I was supposed to be doing. Yes, I had work, a wonderful husband and kids, and grandkids but making that trip to Mom and Dad’s house several times a week had become so much a part of my routine that I felt lost. You can’t imagine how many evenings in the last few months I’ve had a mini panic attack. I will be reading or watching TV and suddenly think “oh my God, its 9:30 and I didn’t go to Moms and forgot to call today”. Then the realization sets in once again and I know that part of my life is over.
I’ve often said that whenever God closes a door, he opens a window. The window has been more work opportunities. I’m busier than I have been in years. For a long time, I turned down jobs because they interfered with taking care of my parents. When you do free-lance work and turn down clients sometimes, that’s it, they find someone else. Now some new and interesting opportunities have come along and I’m working more than ever and . . . still trying to get my parents estate settled. That is a subject for another blog. This could top my rants about geriatric hell!
So the blog is back . . . maybe not as frequent but back all the same.
