It is hard to believe it has been almost a year since I have last written anything to this blog. So many obstacles got in my way. The main one had to do with my dad suddenly dying March 12th and spending the year dealing with not only  the emotional grief, but also the legalities of insurance, funeral bills, probate, and all the ugly side of death. Not to forget the taking care of mom who found herself widowed, with not a clue how to take care of herself. What a year!

I am giving this blog one more shot. If I can not do it this time around, then it was not meant to be.
