Ups and downs

So today I received an email from a cousin who was concerned about me. She'd been checking the blog occasionally and noted that my spirit seemed to have returned...and then I'd done a disappearing act. That is only a slight paraphrase.

And she's right. For a week or two, I felt as if I was getting myself back on some type of writing track. I wrote a little bit almost every day, and sometimes what I wrote was good. Then my husband started having more problems, other issues arose, and sure enough, I disappeared from the blog.

Sorry about that, for those of you who check here to see how we're doing. The answer is, not quite as well as before. My husband had a really bad fall last week, and it has me worried. He's recovering pretty well (the stitches look as good as stitches can). But I worry about him falling again. I'm looking into options for getting some caregiving help. I think, maybe, I will not be able to keep going as we have been.

And, once again, writing romance is not anywhere in the mix of our rather mixed-up existence. We're still thankful for the absence of pain, and the presence of people who love us. That part is definitely not mixed-up.

Thank you for caring!



  1. You are doing the best you can with what you have. That's all any of us can do.

  2. Amen to that. You are an amazing woman. I admire your strength. Praying for you and your husband!
