Winter Round-Up

Spring is here, but there is still some winter in the air!

Technically it is spring, although with the cold front that arrived in Texas yesterday, it doesn’t feel like it. (We even had a fire last night.) But as it has been lately, I am a day late and a dollar short…. I just chalk it up to my crazy life these days.

In the months since posting my Fall Round-Up, a lot has changed for me. My mother had a stroke and my father entered hospice care, so there’s new stressors and changes going on with my family. I have been making monthly trips to Portland to help care for them. In between trips, I celebrated my 26th wedding anniversary by getting seven epidural steroid injections in my back for three bulging discs. (Ouch!) All the while dealing with family, fibromyalgia, a full-time job, and trying to keep up this blog. I do the best I can and I don’t beat myself up for what I can’t do.

I am considering wrapping up the “10 Things…” series for awhile, due to the time it takes to research and write those posts. I am opting for the weekly “Letter Board” series instead. I hope you are enjoying those just as much. Please take a minute to leave me a comment on one of the following:

  • What’s your favorite thing about Spring?
  • Do you like my new letter board series?
  • Do you like my “10 Things” series? Should I quit, or keep going?

  1. Well, you’ve certainly been busy, I’m just sorry there’s been so much stress and difficult times. I’m especially sorry about your mum and dad with their own health conditions; I’m glad you’ve been able to see them as regularly as possible, they’ll be glad to have you there when you’re able to be. Happy Anniversary! I know that’s a little late, but I think you should have a delayed celebration one day when you’re feeling a little more up to it, just for a few hours to do something lovely, just for the two of you. With all you’ve got going on, I’m amazed you’ve written up such a great round-up post! In answer to your questions..
    Favourite thing about spring – thinking summer is next! Seriously though, my body doesn’t regulate heat so I’m always cold; the sunshine and warmth make me very happy. Like the newer posts? yes. Love what you’re doing, so as long as you love what you’re doing too, then we’ll all be here to read it! Please do rest up and take good care, sending gentle hugs your way Cynthia  ♥
