If anyone is still following this blog, you know that I have disappeared from the scene for a while, well almost a year. It’s been a long year, but I want to write again. I love you all, but I will probably not be trying to keep up with every post on everyone’s blog as it’s just overwhelming and not a wise use of my time. I will also not be posting every day right now. I’m going to shoot for two to three times a week for now. I have missed you all so much! Many things have changed in this year and my mother-in-law is moving in with us this Saturday. Hopefully, she will not keep me from writing.
She has been in a nursing home for a while as respite care for my sister-in-law who has cared for her for about 5 years. We aren’t very happy with how it’s going (no disrespect to the home). She’s not happy either. She’s also far away, so visiting is difficult. So, we have decided to take her in. My husband has been working feverishly to get the house ready and we’re closer than we were. Lot’s of downsizing the amazing amount of junk we’ve accumulated plus new looks for two bedrooms – ours and hers.
I have surrendered this to God, because, quite frankly, I’m a bit frightened about this. I know God has got my back though. I have also taken off quite a bit of weight, largely due to medication changes that have allowed me to be much more mobile, and started personal training at the gym. This should help with the physical concerns in taking care of her.
The blog may take a bit of a turn, as I will be adding some reviews and other items here. Since the blog is about communication, everything really can be related to that topic, making it easier on me. I will continue to discuss communication skills and spills between God, us, and others. I hope you will jump back on the ride with me and enjoy! Angie
