Yep, you guessed it!

Im behind again!
I so apologize to all of you that have commented and favorite my works over the past few days. Im so far behind again I feel shame because I appreciate and value each and every one of you!

I hope you don’t think you are being ignored and I don’t care Im just overwhelmed by my mother in law right now. She is having heart/ blood pressure problems and it has been in and out of clinics for the last week and a half. Shes in a nursing home but still needs to be driven to her appointments. She falls quite often so that another day away from home to sit with her.

Im not sure if Im writing all of this to vent or why I feel the need to say it at all. What I do know is I haven’t forgotten not a single person or comment, Im not ignoring you and I certainly do care for the kindness that you give my work! I wouldn’t continue on if it weren’t for all of you and your encouragement.

Thank you so much from my very being and Im hoping next week will bring my mother in law better news and we both can stay home for awhile. She misses home as much as I do!

On a happier note I sure have met some gorgeous Doctors from all of this!

Hugs to you all and thank you, thank you, thank you!

    You are doing the best possible work right now—caring for another human being in need! May God give you and your mother in law the grace to get through these trying times.

    That is OK, I looked at the person ahead of them the other day and thought “I wonder who that fat old man is!” then I got close and realized it was me. I am so far behind I am catching up with my behind. Seriously, family is more important than RB.

    I smile at your doctor comment, Tina… You are doing a very good thing when family is put first… RB should be a happy place and not work…So you are not behind or late or getting docked pay…Hugs, Susan

    Tina, PLEASE don’t apologize!! We all have times when the real world takes all our attention. You are doing the important thing now, looking after her. We will wait patiently until you have more time. Take care of yourself too.

    It’s emotionally and physically exhausting when you have family members suffering and in need. Here’s wishing all the best to you M.I.L. and make sure you take some ‘you time’ to restore your energy. Oh my… look at me sounding very Motherish myself :)

    I’ve always found that meeting gorgeous Doctors is very restorative so I’d say you’re definitely on the right track ;-)

    Take care Tina :)

    Sweetie, don’t worry about us. Just do what you can. She needs you a lot right now. Just take some pleasure in her company. I save up hugs for you. :o)
