Back I Am
I'm back and I'm sorry. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that emailed/called and was worried about me. It helped more than you know. I was not in a good place. I sort of fell apart and I'm normally the one that holds everything together. I even had Anna worried. That's how far I fell down the rabbit hole.
I promise that I will get caught up on everyone's lives. I missed you all terrible. It's just going to take some time. I'm working my way back to normal.
So what set me off, hmmmmm, let's see.
My FIL had surgery to remove his prostate. The surgery was unsuccessful. So he was mutilated and lost quite a bit of ground for no reason. He is now going to have radiation and estrogen shots. Maybe, they should have told him before he had the surgery that this could happen.
My MIL has/had skin cancer. And the doctor is a quack. We all know that I am a big mouth and keeping my opinion to myself has not been an easy thing. The doctor burns bits and pieces of her face off and then tells her that she needs a plastic surgeon and has more cancer on her face. The doctor has everyone worked into a frenzy. My MIL's family has prayer chains going and everyone is worked up. Ok, I have nothing against prayer chains or anything like that but the next time that my MIL goes to the doctor, the doctor forgets she said she still has cancer and then can't find it. My MIL keeps thanking Jesus that He "healed her" but in fact, the doctor seems a bit lost. Look, I'm not a doctor but I know enough TO KEEP NOTES. Even Den said, I think mom just has chapped lips.
Anna is now moving to Denver. The roommate that they are living with got a wonderful new job in Denver and they all decided to move. I'm glad that I didn't book flights to see her in CA. So her life plan is to follow their roommate from state to state.
DJ got a letter from the head of the accounting department at Ball State asking him to change his major to accounting. Some people post about their kids to brag, honestly, I'm just shocked that my kids don't pee when they walk. They both rode the short bus for quite some time. At least, he is moving up in the world. If he can get an internship next summer, it starts at $25/hr and rent and all expenses will be paid. So he may be better off than we are. We told him that we are proud of him and that we are going to have Anna move in with him. It would solve so many problems.
I'm a bit concerned with Den. They have 4 men in his department and the plant manager said that 2 of the guys could have 2 weeks off. The other guy that is left can't be concerned with working because his phone is more important. I'm trying not to make eye contact with him and I have stocked up on beer.
And just to keep my sanity, I was having a "what am I going to be, when I grow up" breakdown. My book did very poorly on Amazon. So I unpublished it and I'm going to go with my old publisher and have it come out in print. I also have quite a few books that are finished and just sitting there. I'm going to clean them up and have them printed too. It's not much of a profession/job but at least, I have something to show for time/life energy spent.
I have gotten quite a bit of yard work done though. So that is something, right?
Sort of ok,
