No, The Blog Isn't Dead. Just Hibernating

I have to admit surprise, finding after months of silence anyone finds their way to this blog at all, much less on a daily basis. Perhaps that should be encouraging and a reminder someone thinks there is something here worth reading.

I'll try to take it as such.

The silence, as usual, comes from feeling overwhelmed, which is followed closely by fear and confusion which then starts an avalanche of negative thoughts... Both old and new.

The passing of Charlie's Momma brought with it unresolved wounds and guilt for Charlie and me. 

It took him years to process the loss of his Daddy... And I can see the effects of this new grief in him daily.

Add to that the estate and probate issues, the reminder our home isn't really ours (yet) and trying to figure out the best way to make it our forever home... And that's a lot for anyone to deal with.

Opened an Etsy store only to then run into complications at home that make finding a reasonable and reliable work space, challenging at best.

It's 3 am on a Wednesday morning... There's so much more to say here but John, the night owl, has decided he needs to know all the details kept from him about Dad's 3 weeks in ICU last year.

To be honest, it's been on my mind a lot lately too. I wouldn't have picked tonight to talk about it...

But them, not talking has been a problem too... And John deserves to have his questions answered.

So, here's a post. Not much of one but it will have to do for tonight.
