Stuff

Sorry for this long absence. Currently my life is filled with some minor and a few major problems. My elderly father is sick and in hospital - heart stuff. Sweet Wife is in flux. The weather sucks...its hot, which isn't a problem but I hate it none the less.

I'm tired.

Also, I've broken one of my simple promises as I haven't responded to your comments...I beg forbearance. Over the last few days I've barely glanced at this computer. Perhaps it's the holidays, not sure, but my mind is cluttered and my patience short.

I sincerely hope all of you are well, warm and well fed.

Please, take care.

Stephen

  3. Family comes first. Blogging is a sideshow.

  5. We certainly understand. Prayers for your dad, Sweet Wife and you. Sending you a dusting of snow. 1/4" last night and the wind is blowing it eastward. Take care.

  6. Take care Stephen. I agree with Preppie. Blogs are just a sideshow. I just about took the entire summer and fall off from my blog. Just didn't have much to say. A few loyal readers hung in there and waited for me.

  10. No worries, Stephen - and what they've all said, above. All that stuff going on around you? That's life. This? It's just blogging.

    Take your time, my friend, and be well. May you have peace in all your going out & coming in, today and everyday.

  12. Take your time and take care of your family. My Dad has been in the hospital due to a stroke and we had the funeral today for Sweet Things Dad. Sorrow seems to come in bunches doesn't it?

  13. Hey, family first. Take the time you need; half of us out here in internet-land are in the same too-busy boat until the end of the year, so don't go feeling guilty on our account.

    Hope things get better soon for you, SW, and your father.

  14. Do what you gotta Stephen. Real life is MORE important that the computer. We'll be around.

  15. I don't think anyone feels like you have to be on here every day. A blog is like the telephone, just because it rings doesn't mean you have to respond .

    Hope things get better, sounds like you have a lot to juggle right now.

    I'm dreaming of a green Christmas...
