I started a blog, but there was an emergency in my family, so by tonight when I got back to it, the computer deleted it. I hadn't started it on Word like I had been, so It was lost. I have to change what I was blogging about anyway. My mot... Read more

I haven't been blogging the past couple of days. I have been shutting down emotionally. I want to blame it on a number of factors. Being with my aging parents is truly difficult for me. I am at a loss as to how to handle it. In the 5 months sin... Read more
