To be exact it's been 73 days since my last post. That's a long time. To long! To long to miss you, to long to be out of the loop. I never meant to be gone so long.

I feel like Lemony Snicket with my very own 'Series of Unfortunate Events', Except no one is chasing me. Well that's a plus anyway.

To begin with right after my last post our favorite little pet died. And between my son and I, we live on about two acres of land that badly needed tending two after last winter.
The weather wasn't as cold as it has been in the past but we did have a few bad episodes of some bad hail and some very high winds.
It really wasn't until the spring mowing started that we began finding out how much damage the winds had caused. We found large branches from some of our trees on the ground so there was a lot of clean up to be done.

My son did what he could when he wasn't working and I did my part. I spent many a day outside with the help of my grandson moving downed limbs to be hauled off and cutting down half broken limbs barely hanging from the trees. The bad news is when I was ready to come inside and put up a post the computer was always being used and like the good Samaritan I would end up saying oh that's OK maybe later. But later never came. Day after day later never came. In fact all summer long later never came for me. Ah yes, then I decided to have a yard sale and it has rained every week-end since I said those dreaded words 'Yard Sale'. I am truly jinxed.

My daughter is extremely selfish when it comes to the computer and when she is not here, my grandson replaces her on the computer. However he is a caring young man and he always asks if I want on, but who wants to take time away from a kid. I would feel like the Grinch. My daughter on the other hand doesn't seem to mind a bit, in fact there are times when she acts more like a child then her child. Perhaps at this point I should mention that she is Bipolar. Anyone familiar with that knows exactly what I mean.

When I couldn't get on the computer I could think of a million things I wanted to write about, but if the chance arose to get on the computer I couldn't think of anything to write at all.
I slowly became brain dead and thought that I would never blog again. The days ran into weeks and the weeks began to run into months and all the while I am telling my family that I am giving up my blog which by the way I think would make my daughter very happy. One less person to be on the computer.

Give up my blog? Am I insane? Why would I give up something that I love doing more then anything.
No way am I giving up my blog! I have been miserable without it.

I'm here to state that I'm back and I'm here to stay!

Hello, hello. Is anyone out there?? Hello.

That's OK I'll find you.
