Shimelle, in her Blogging for Scrapbookers guide, wants to know today how my 2010 is looking so far. I’ve thought about this for most of this afternoon and I came to the conclusion that, taken as a whole, it’s been pretty pants.
Why’s that, you ask? In a nutshell ~ my MIL’s Alzheimer’s has dramatically and rapidly decreased her quality of life, and, by association, that of my FIL, DH and SIL. Our next step is full-time professional care. My SIL is still in recovery from a 2nd bout of cancer. DH’s business is struggling due to the current economic climate (UK out of recession because of a rise in growth of 0.1%? Don’t make me laugh). DS isn’t yet potty trained (down to me, not him) and he’s waiting on a referral to Speech Therapy. Me? I’m doing what it says on the banner of my blog ~ trying to hold it all together.
These are subjects that I would never normally blog about; I try to keep the really personal stuff away the virtual world, which is why I blog so much about scrapping, I suppose! But Shimelle asked, and I feel better just by articulating it.
