So, it's been over a year and a half since I last blogged....lots of good reasons...lots of life changes.....
Big breath....I got separated...I am getting divorced.
That was easier to write than expected. Such a small word for such a big change.
Yes, we sold the house...but, I myself, bought a new house. Much smaller, much older, much, much closer to work. Such an adorable cute house. I love it.
The daughter has grown up, moved out of state, and is pursuing her dream...working hard, learning life lessons, independently. Guess we did a good job. Miss her LIKE CRAZY!
I am OFFICIALLY middle aged. Over 50.
Took myself to ITALY for two weeks for my birthday. Best. Vacation. Of. My. Life. Ate gelato three times a day sometimes. Felt like a cliche'. But loved it. And will go back!
Still catching babies. A lot.
Still teaching at the University. A little.
Started working with SART as well...I'm SANE...(google it)..still the acronym makes me giggle inappropriately.
Losses....Tucker man...beautiful, loyal furfriend......hemangiosarcoma off his pancreas...passed away in April of this year. Peacefully. Surrounded by love.
Grandma Clara. Would have been 90 in July. Passed away peacefully May 11. I was holding her hand. It felt like....a soap bubble popped.....I looked down and she was gone. Miss. Her. Like. Crazy....more than I ever thought I would. Really. Still getting used to her being gone. Still see things at the store and think "oh, she will like this"....and realize belatedly that she's gone.
So many many changes. And yet...I still knit. I still catch babies. I still am me.
I think, it is time to start blogging again.
If you are still out there and reading this...let me know...
