It definitely has been a long time since I’e written, hasn’t it? It seems like I identified this space with the story of my mother, and so now that she is gone and life goes on I have not thought much about adding to this site.
Someone emailed me to say that I have not be blogging lately and wondered if I was ok. I am – but I am sure that most of you can relate to the fact that it just is a strange time.
I was pretty sick this month – sicker that I have been for a very long time. I was off of work for a little more than a week and diagnosed with bronchitis, sinusitis, an ear infection and I was running a 101 fever. I still haven’t shaken it completely as my ear is still plugged up, but he antibiotics seem to be loosening that up a bit.
Everyone told me that I would probably have a let down once mom died. I thought it would happen over the holidays, but when it didn’t of course I felt I had beaten that. But, being sick and just trying to move forward has put me in a place of doing a lot of reflection and soul searching. I’m not sure where it is taking me, but I am viewing it as a journey that needs to be taken.
I hope all of you are well. So far, this year has been much better than the last two – I have had some opportunity to be on an even keel, and although that may sound boring it is suiting me just fine for now.
The onslaught of snow has stopped here for a while and although we were getting pounded with it over and over, lately we have been having warmer weather and we missed the record of 63 consecutive days with snow on the ground by 2 days. The bad news is that March and April are historically the snowiest months of the year here, so we will see what happens with that. It is funny to be happy to see the grass in your back yard again – we have had snow on the ground continously since December 20.
I hope to get back in the habit of keeping up my blogs – but, as I said, it has been nice to have had some time where everything has been on an even keel that it leaves me little to write about. Take care, all!
