Hey There, 2012

PHOTO: hownowdesign

I chose this photo for this post a few weeks ago. Back when my stepdad’s mom was in the hospital for what we thought was going to be a quick bout with gallstones. Now as I type this we’re several weeks later, Betty’s been in the ICU for awhile, and I’m heading back to Pennsylvania a day after returning from Christmas because they don’t expect she’ll make it through the weekend. I guess I just wanted to let you know that it’s a really tough time around here right now, and my blogging break is going to be extended another week or so. I haven’t had time to get any guest posts together to fill in for me, but I think you understand. Family first, always. xo
