I've been gone from this space for almost two months. Honestly, I've thought about it, and you, often, but my brain has not been fully engaged. I've been sick. My doctor put me on some medication that was definitely worse than the illness. For an entire month, I slept 15 to 18 hours a day, and during the time I was awake, I didn't feel awake. My mother even took the time to drive from Oklahoma to Kentucky to help take care of me one of the weeks that Gary was out of town. Fortunately, by that time, I was off the meds and starting to feel a little more engaged.
But... Then, we went on vacation for two weeks. Sadly, I did not have good access to wifi while we were gone, except for the two hotel nights and a trip to Starbucks.
At any rate, I'm no longer drugged. I'm feeling immensely better due to that fact. Sadly, we still have not figured out what is causing my problems, but we're working on it. We left Gabriel in Maine with Gary's parents. He is being spoiled and loved and will come home much refreshed. He needed a little time away after the responsibility of caring for his brothers and me while I was sleeping. Gary is in Richmond, VA and will be back Thursday. The little (can I still call them that?) boys, also known as the Joes, after the G.I. Joes, and I have a full schedule. We have playdates, movies, pool parties, and more planned for the next four days. Somewhere in there, I have to fit in baking, sewing and cleaning.
Gabriel's birthday is coming up, and it's an all homemade birthday. Gary's birthday is coming up, but we won't talk about that, in case he is reading.
It's good to be back. I have so many things to show you.
