Okay, who knew I would just fall off the face of the earth, huh? Raise your hand if you knew; anyone... anyone...?

I am here. There has been so very much going on lately, let me explain... no, there is too much, let me sum up:

Our first fire evacuation of the year

On the same day, my daughter had her 8th grade graduation

I started working at a nursery

My son was in the Shakespeare Festival on the mountain

We had our annual shearing, for which I was trapped OFF the mountain due to the freeway being closed

We are finishing up three 10 hour service projects for my daughter's church program

My chicken died

Mom's Summer Taxi Service officially went into business (to which I donate my services for- aren't I nice?)

Girl's Camp

My cat disappeared

My son got a job, for which of course, I provide further taxi service

I was turned down for surgery by my insurance

I went dark for a while due to some of the above

So....... I wanted everyone to know I was still alive, perhaps kicking... er, not so much- but still- here I am!

And I miss all of you, I have dropped in on you but haven't said hi a couple of times.

Love you, hope to write more very soon,

Love the Mandy Patinkin line from Princess Bride. It's one of my favorites.

Nice to see you back. Glad to hear you have a life -- well, glad to hear about the good things, anyway. Sorry about the chicken and the cat.

Dear Sandy,
Oh my gosh! God bless you my friend. Every time I think I've got it bad, I hear of someone who has endured ever so much more.
I love you my friend, and hope things are looking up!

Hope the cat going missing had nothing to do with the death of your chicken?

Hope things are working out for you, I'm sending warm, healing thoughts your way. Hugs. x
