I haven't fallen off the earth. Some days I feel like it though. My daughter and her family leave tomorrow. I'm going to miss hearing my grandson race through my hallways early in the morning. I'm going to miss the feel of my daughter's head on my shoulder as we curl up in the TV room chair together. I'm going to miss getting to know my son-in-law better.
But it's time to jump back into what I love to do most. Write. Read. And keep in touch with all the good friends I've made online. So hang on, because I'll be picking up the pieces in the next couple of days and reading all your updates.
As to my job, I'm still there. So are a lot of other hurting and sad co-workers. Sometimes I think the staff are worse off than the residents who make their home there. But then that's another story for another time.
Thanks again for your encouragement.
