You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however,” ~Richard Bach, Illusions
Many of you know I was taking care of my mother-in-law earlier this year. She just turned 90 and has Alzheinmers. We have also been fighting the VA for several years now over hubby’s last deployment leaving me knee deep in paperwork, phone calls and appointments trying to straighten it out and now I find myself in a psuedo care taking position for my aunt who has end stage Parkinson’s disease and a
lousy attitude closed mind and cry wolf attitude.
Without a long story full of petty details let’s just say it has been a long, long, long year. We have lived in 4 separate states in the past 9 months and dealt with everyone else’s needs except our own. My blogging is suffering, my health is suffering and my peace of mind is suffering. So what is the answer?
I have finally decided the answer is putting my/our needs first. It may be selfish, but the time has come to be just that! So the plan is to get back on track with regular posting, menu planning, recipe experimenting and living life to the fullest. I will be hitting the “mark all read” button on my google reader and allowing myself a “FRESH” start. I hate doing that, but feel it is the best and only way to dig myself out of this hole!
I look forward to getting back to regular blog reading and a quality life. I’ll see you all in blogland soon.
