Seriously. I just went through some ridiculous circumstances over the last, oooooh, let's call it sixteen months. I did manage to avoid jail. This time. So far.
Actually, life is kinda awesome, although insomnia gets old pretty quick.
My computer is so far behind on software updates, it won't let me write journal entries. So I thought I would take the opportunity to use this pilfered... erm, borrowed
laptop to at least make my page look like it has been seen by the owner (me) in the last year.
Other than that: still working through some challenges. Divine assistance has been more helpful than I can describe. And I'm working, but I have some pretty serious stuff going on (resurgence of back pain from the fusion, brain surgery last March to remove a tumor... you know, the usual), so the process has been slower than I would like. For those of you who like my mixed-media work, I have good news: I'm working with mixed-media again. The bad news is that I don't have a scanner, so I'm gonna have to figure something out along those lines.
My grandmother recently went into the hospital, and things didn't go so well. She has fairly advanced Alzheimer's, in addition to congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, so when she went in for a respiratory infection, we were justifiably concerned. After spending three weeks in the hospital, she was sent home under hospice. It's just me and my mom here to take care of her, and my sister has lovingly offered to let her three girls (18 months, 4, and 6) spend their after-school hours here at the house. Nice, right? So prayers would be appreciated. As it is, once Meirmeire came home from the hospital, she made rapid improvements in her emotional state, as well as just feeling
better. She's comfortable, which is the best we can ask for.
Anyway, in the midst of all this, I am still working. Hopefully I will have something up, soon. Prayers would be welcomed. And as always, thanks for taking the time to visit me here, such as it is...
