Hi Everyone, or all 3 of my remaining readers. I know, I checked out there for a long time. Well, my laptop was on the fritz for almost six months, so I had no computer to do blogs on and could barely keep up with my email at the library. Cripes! I know, whine, whine.
Well, I got my laptop back last week and I'm in a frenzy of writing. I hope to keep this blog updated again but I'm not making any promises. I am just not the kind of person that can be on a scheduled routine and keep to it all the time.
Anyway, life has gotten better. I miss my Dad a lot, but I don't feel so blah about doing things anymore. It was like it just wore me out, losing him. So I didn't want to do a lot. So I didn't. Well, it's been a year. My Mom is doing ok but I sure wish I was closer so I could go visit her more. And my daughter wants to go visit her more as well, which breaks my heart because we can't afford to go but once, maybe twice a year. So I look forward to Christmas, when we're planning to go next. We had Christmas there last year and it was really wonderful.
Summer's almost over and I had a great time. My headaches are under control enough that I can actually make plans and keep them most of the time, which is a big change from last year. We went camping twice and did a day trip to a cave in Wisconsin and I'm writing a zine about it called something like What I Did This Summer. I even went swimming in the lake a few times, which I don't do much because the sun can give me a headache really easily. But I did okay! And had fun! I haven't had so much in years. I do wish we could go to the ocean for a vacation, but that's a bit far. Still, my kid knows all about tides and sea creatures and I want so much for her to experience the huge difference between lake and ocean.
