So much to catch up on, but first........

Yes, I’ve been gone for a while. Nothing major, but between working 46 hours plus a week and taking three college classes and still running to North Carolina every other weekend, I just didn’t have the umphh to post.

I have been wanting to, but have been enjoying the scaled back hours now that tax season is over, and couple that with taking NO classes for the summer semester, and it breeds for one very lazy person.

However, my love for blogging has not left. So many times in the last month I have thought that I really needed to sit down and write something. Catch things up. The Yahoo support group for caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s and dementias gave me a reason to today. The Barry Peterson, CBS corrspondent interview about his wife with early onset Alzheimer's. Here it is. They are well worth the time to watch.

Watch CBS News Videos Online

Talk about the tears flowing........Oh, how well I understand. The most striking quote to me was this one "A friend calls it grieving, like saying goodbye by going to the same funeral over and over again." That is how I feel almost all the time. Still. It. Never. Ends.

I will post again shortly with all of the changes that have happened over the last six months. Most were good.


  1. Oh, that is so hard. My sister-in-law is losing her mother to Alzheimer's right now. It's been a looooong process. She lives back east right now, but she and her husband want to move out west to be closer to her husband's (our) family. But, she feels like she can't, because even though her mother doesn't know who she is anymore, it makes her happy to have a visitor. Just makes me want to cry. My heart goes out to you.

    Anyway, that's funny they mentioned KPHO on Rachel Maddow (and no, I don't hate you for being liberal! I consider myself a social moderate with conservative economic views). I am glad KPHO is investigating Gov. Brewer. Let's just say I did not vote for her in the primaries. I support immigration reform, but her way is NOT the right way to go about it.

  2. I hope you are doing ok. Thanks for posting to me the other day. I think of you often and wonder what's going on in your life!

  3. hope all is well .....
