The Grey Sky Has Lifted -

For some reason ...
Today, I feel more like my old perky & smiling self.
It's about time!

I was able to get a lot of work done -
And catch up on a bunch of calls & emails.

A mighty terrific Tuesday :-)

Finally - I Got to the Computer Before Anyone Else!

With Cody trying to finish up all his work for the end of the semester.
And Craig surfing the internet trying to find the perfect leather jacket for his "Guy" bike trip in June ...
I've had a heck of a time getting to the computer before them.
But a strong cup of coffee was my winning strategy tonight.
So here I am :-)
Mess that I am these days.
This whole trying to bounce back from surgery, instant menopause, scared of the cancer coming back, almost empty-nest syndrome, caring for my dad, trying to figure out the rest of my life is HARD!
It's really weird too ...
Because usually I am the energetic, focused, and strong one.
Thankfully Craig is loving me unconditionally.
