Sorry to have gone completely AWOL! I’ve been driving back and forth to a neighboring state while my father is critically ill in the hospital. It is taking 150% of everything I have just to get through it and be there for my kids (minimally). Blogging is one of the areas of my life that has had to be cut for now. I hope to resume blogging and working toward becoming healthier as soon as I can manage it. I’ve handled things very badly, using food as a blatant crutch to try to get through and have gained a bunch of weight. This past week I’ve managed to get back in control (after about 6 weeks of not being in control), but today I have to go back to NV to see my dad and I probably won’t do very well–not being fatalistic, just realistic. This is the hardest time of my life and I have to do whatever I can just to survive right now. I hope everyone else is having a better time of it and I’ll “see” you again when I can get some extra energy for blogging back.
