Blog Update - Where Have I Been?
Folks, I'm falling behind in my blog posts as perhaps regular followers of my blog have noticed.
The reasons for my tardiness are many and myriad but the fact remains, that I'm having trouble keeping up with regular blog posts.
I have so much going on in my life now that takes precedence over my blog posts.
One of the main reasons is that this is summertime and I have a lot of outside responsibilities. Most of this summer have been very hot and humid. Dragging myself through this summer has been exhausting with all the different problems that needed to be resolved.
And last but not least, I am Bill's caregiver which is taking my more and more of my time. I do not complain about being Bill's caregiver but it is time consuming at times. Thank goodness he is still mobile and able to take care of himself most of the time. Could be a lot worse and for which I am thankful it is not.
Another responsibility that has been consuming my time has been my job at the hotel. Even though I work part-time two days a week, I've been called on to work more than two days a week for the past six months filling in for my co-workers for their emergencies, of which there have been plenty this year including the resignation of a longtime full-time worker which required filling in for her and training her replacement. Thank goodness that situation has calmed down, for now anyway.
In two weeks time I leave for my annual visit to my good friend Pat in Canada. I'm looking forward to taking a break from the summertime routine here. Of course I have to check in with Bill every day but I do have a chance to breath.
I am looking forward to summer ending and the autumn weather rolling in, providing some relief from all the gardening problems I've had this year.
In summation, if you don't see a regular blog posting from me, do not despair. I'll be back, eventually.
