Where have I been ?

Hi all, so sorry I haven't been around blogland much. I really miss being able to read everyone's blogs! Things have been hectic and a little tough around here. My 80 yr old mom has been very ill since the beginning of September, I won't get into details as she would shoot me if I she knew I talked about it on here, lol, but I have been going back and forth to help my siblings out taking caring of her, she is doing okay for now, the future we are not sure of and there are alot of important decisions to be made. My mom is my rock, the lady who keeps me grounded, cheers me up when I am blue and is always willing to lend a hand when her family needs it. It's my turn to do my best for her and to help out any way I can and it's hard when I live 45 mins away and have a family here at home to take care of. And on top of that, my husband has been out of work since the beginning of September, and although he has been putting resumes everywhere, there is just nothing yet :(  So here I thought that when school started and I would be on my own since all my kids are in school everyday now, I would get some me time to do the things I wanted to get done.....no chance of that right now, lol. 
Guess I'd better run, so much to do and not enough time in the day to do it! I hope to get some free time in to get to everyone's blogs!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week,

hugs and blessings,


p.s.,  BettyJ, thankyou for asking me if I was okay, it reminded me that I needed to get back on here since it's been so long :)
