Sometimes Life Gets in the Way of Blogging

By
Real Estate Assistant with Second Self Virtual Assistance

medical heartI had made a New Year's resolution to post one blog post a day.  And I had kept that promise up the end of February.  That's when I got derailed.  My life got in the way of my blogging.  First, I got a part-time job at night that ate up much of my free time during the week.  And then, three weeks ago, we were out with our family, celebrating my 18th wedding anniversary, when my mother-in-law had to be taken to the hospital after complaining of chest and back pains.  Fast forward four days and she had open heart surgery to replace the aortic valve in her heart.  (Now, she's part piggy...my husband thinks it's funny to snort at her occassionally.  He even took away the bacon they gave her during her recovery, saying it was tanamount to cannibalism.)  She then had an adverse reaction to the medications she was given, making her extremely unresponsive to what was going on around her and making the doctors think that there might be brain damage.  Things were touch and go for several days.  That did pass and now she's doing great, as long as she can ignore the invisible elephant that has taken up residency on her chest.  My family definitely comes from strong stock!

Now, I could beat myself up for not getting my blogging done as I had meant to.  But, I'm not going to.  Instead.  I choose to move forward, secure in the knowledge that I will be blogging to my little heart's content now that things have settled back into a more normal (albeit, still busy as hell) pace.  Yes, Active Rainers.  Life can get in the way of blogging and that's OK.  It's nice to know I can always come back, though, and be a part of this community I love so much.  I'm now going to have to plan ahead and gear up for my daily posts on the weekends, I think.  Whew!

Thanks, Patrick.

Thank you, Judy.  I'm glad to be able to be back splashing around in the Active Rain.

Stuff happens, right, Kathy? :)

Thanks, Suzanne.  We're trudging through.  With a big family comes big love as well as big responsibility.  There's always something going on with someone.

Thanks, Lou.  I'll keep that in mind.  :)

Thank you, Gary.  She is doing well with her recovery.  I appreciate the good thoughts.

You're a doll, Miss C.  Thanks alot.  I've missed you.

Heather--Wow!  Glad that your mother-in-law is doing well after the surgery.  Hopefully that elephant leaves her house soon.  Happy belated anniversary and many more.  Next month Dave & I will celebrate twelve years.  All wonderul years.

Good to see you again as I said in my previous comment.

Thanks, Heather.  I hope that we have the opportunity to meet the love of your life one of these trips.  None planned to Idaho at this time.  We are grounded for awhile.
