I've been away a long time.
My father was very unexpectedly ill in May - ultra-serious heart problems. Not quite healed, never will be, but much better. After almost six weeks of him in the hospital and his move back to the house, I got very sick with pneumonia and UTI (stress?) and then very sick with complications from the medications. Once that was finally over, we had our first ever and super-successful family reunion.
Now, it's all done and we're sort of back to normal. Once all the laundry is done :). Labour Day this long weekend and back to school the following Wednesday. I cannot believe she is starting grade nine. She is halfway through her braces and got contacts a few weeks ago. Turned 14. No more a "baby teenager".
I've kept up with reading my blogs. Just reading them has really helped with my personal chaos. The routine, the normalcy.
Hopefully once school is in, I will blog more frequently and more regularly. I'd like that for myself.
Summer is fading away.
