Excuses, Excuses, Excuses!



There are times that I desire to write here and cannot due to several factors that seem to always make theirselves, themselves, whatever selves known.

The first one being our computer. Seems the poor thing has seen better days, is old, and has jumped the shark.

We've added more RAM and other expensive technically sounding shtuff that I know absolutely nothing about...but to no avail, because in all of reality it doesn't matter how fine-tuned your PC is if your internet provider is not living up to their end of the bargain ((sigh)).

Their story, "We're updating equipment." Hmmm.

Another factor...my precious mom, bless her heart, has gotten to the point that she MUST be back on medicine (she's mentally ill) in order to keep her car, her house, and most important of all, her independence.
This predicament has kept me hopping now for the last two weeks.
Actually her illness has always been a part of my life, but occassionally, as now, things come to a head and others must step in, namely me, for which she resents me greatly and may I just add that that last statement was a gross understatement and run-on sentence deluxe!

I'm not angry or even being sarcastic...really...I'm being honest.
For those that have had to deal with mentally ill family members you know exactly where I'm coming from.
I've found with age, that I'm caring less and less what others think (thank you, Lord) and just doing what has to be done.
It can be hard...but the prayers of friends and family and the comfort, guidance, and peace that only the Lord can give make it doable.

So with that little grammatically incorrect essay, I feel I have adequately explained my absence from the blog world.

Hoping for an excused absence as your veiwership is valued,

Julie

P.S. The above picture has absolutely nothing to do with this post. It was one of the only photos that I had access to on my hard drive due to photobucket failing to upload numerous and sundry times and besides I thought it was perdy.

Oh Julie, I am sorry. It is good to hear from you though. :-) Hang in there. Sounds like you are!

Julie,
I'll keep you and family in my prayers. You have a great attitude for the situation at hand. I recently read that your faith is like a muscle that must be exercised. You must be doing heavy sets right now.
Hugs.

P.s. we just added two new dogs to the mix.

Of course you are excused. You don't owe us anything, but we sure do like to have you around! Your plate is full... funny, a platefull is what we all love to have. :) But only as long as it's something good. ... Oh, where did I just read that thing from Corrie tenBoom, about loving difficult people?
