Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted anything. But then, not much happens in my life that is super exciting. I did go on a cruise (quilting) with a friend in February. We went through the Panama Canal....a trip I would do again if given the opportunity. My sister-in-law passed away in May. I'm going to miss her a lot. I wish I could have said good bye to her while she was alive, but understand she did not want anyone to see her in the condition she was in. I hope my brother does not feel guilty if he feels a great sense of relief. It had to be just as much hell for him to watch her go through her ordeal. Same goes for the adult children.
My daughter is getting divorced. I'm amazed she lasted as long as she did. She beat me by a couple of years. I only lasted 7. Too many empty or broken promises and too many lies. She tried to make it work for 5 years. My son-in-law just doesn't get it still. When asked I tried to tell him part of what went wrong. He doesn't LISTEN! Interestingly enough he hooked up with a couple of ex-girlfriends quite quickly after he was told a divorce was wanted and he has been spending a goodly amount of time with one of them in particular. I have to wonder how long before the news of the divorce he had been in touch with them. It is good, however, that he has someone to talk to....hopefully he takes responsibility and doesn't try to put it all on my daughter.
I am, believe it or not, going to try to write more often. It can be cathartic. Right now, however, I need to get a move on and do something, even if it's wrong. Go to the gallery, perhaps. It's too hot outside to get anything done at this time of day (believe it or not). Maybe I'll get up earlier tomorrow morning and get something done.
