I’ve been toying with the idea of blogging again for a while now. I’ve had lots of ideas of things to blog about. Now that I’ve set the thing up, I can’t think of any. Figures. But you can go read my “about” page for starters. Go ahead. I’ll wait.
So, yeah, that’s our current situation. Not all good, not all bad, always a challenge! Actually, I think the biggest challenge may lie ahead, as we found out about a week ago that my mom’s breast cancer (she’s had it 3 times, but most recently in 2007) has metastasized to her bones. I think it’s going to be a tough road – for her and for me – once she starts treatment. Yes, we’ve been through it (the chemo) together twice before … but not with a baby in tow! That’s the sandwich thing!
I think some people think I have it made in the shade … staying at home with the baby, not working, and having my mom living here and helping to boot. And it may have started out that way a little bit. (When Hope was first born, I mean.) It truly has been great having my mom here to help! But she has been having a lot of issues with memory loss over the last year or so … and other typical issues that go along with aging … so we’ve been dealing with all of that even before this latest cancer diagnosis. Anyway, to anyone that may think that I have it easy, I say, “YOU try it!”
So, like I said on the “About” page, I really just feel like writing about … whatever! So sometimes it might be about Mom and baby and life challenges … but sometimes it might be about what we’re having for dinner or what was on sale at Rite Aid or the beautiful rainbow we saw today!
OK, hopefully not as boring as what we’re having for dinner. LOL.
Then again, I really do want a roast beef sandwich now!
