I've Been Missing!

I have been gone ever so long.  June undoubtedly was the worst month of my life.  I had to rush to Chicago to move my elderly mom here to live with me in Virginia after she got out of the hospital.  She fell, was ill and finally I had doctors on my side telling her she could no longer live alone.  Then I began the huge job of cleaning out her house and selling it.  Let me tell you, that was work.  I sweat a lot, no A/C, poor me!  Break out the violins.  Well, I won't go on and on, because the month got worse and worse.

Mom got here with the help of my beautiful Kathy...unfortunately, a few weeks after Kathy got her here, Mom's health took a turn for the worse.  On 28 June, my little, tiny Mom (she weighed 99 lbs) passed away.  I am full of grief and unable to do much of anything. 

I miss art, I miss seeing all of your work...I miss the friendships here...I just miss everyone.  Period.  And I feel like I'll never bee happy again.
