Long Time, No Blogging

I didn't intend to take a break from blogging....but life has just seemed to get into the way!  Lots of changes to adjust to, last semester of my undergraduate education, getting my house in order (a never-ending job, but I have made some headway), and looking for a job.

The job hunting has been making me CRAZY!  Yes, unemployment is at an all-time high, and yes, I am 58 years old, but damn, I'm still GOOD!  Am putting myself out there each and every day, and am trusting that the right job will happen when the time is right....

Life is good, and I have much to be grateful for.  I spent the last week in San Diego with my daughter's family...little 16-month old Ashlyn was hospitalized in the PICU with pneumonia.  Mom and Dad spent most of their time spelling each other at the hospital, and Emma and I got to hang out at home.  Tough times for a three-year old, but her parents are awesome....they made sure that one of them spent time with her each day, and that she got to speak with her sister on the phone.  The hospital even allowed Emma to come and visit one day when Ashlyn was on the road to recovery...Emma was a trooper and handled it all so well!  We did dishes, played Candyland, "camped out" on the living room floor and watched movies, had reading parties in my other words, did all of our favorite things!  I am so blessed to be a part of this family and to be able to be a support in a time of need...Ashlyn came home on Saturday and is in fine spirits! I came home to rest up myself, and will be headed back down to San Diego tomorrow to help out with the girls so that my daughter can get some rest....never a dull moment!

I've missed you all, and am glad to be back!  OXOX
