Wow, it has been awhile since I have written a proper entry. I missed reading journals and I missed writing. I guess it has been about three weeks except for a quick on and off to wish Chelsea a happy birthday. I feel bad, too, because I didn't wish Krissy a proper happy birthday on March 13. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Krissy, my favoritest big girl in the whole wide world!!!!! So, I think it will take me forever to catch up on journal reading!! You see, I only give myself some time in the morning and then I get off and don't get back on until the next morning. So, if I have not visited your journal I will be coming! I promise!! Just give me a little bit of time!! Be patient!! Thanks!!
My last few weeks have been crazy, to say the least. I took a trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a week. I was there helping a friend who had to retrieve things that belonged to her mom who passed away. Although it was wonderful spending time with Chelsea the whole week, and nice to be away from my home at times, and good to be with friends, it was also stressful to be away and to put my body through what it went through. When you are with three others who have different lifestyles it is just hard. It was cold and rainy as well. We were very busy, too, and it was an emotional trip. I actually only got to the beach twice for a total of about twenty minutes. I did get some pictures, though. Here are a couple.
The second one was taken right before a thunderstorm. This view was actually right out our condo. window. We had an amazing oceanfront view. It was incredible. That was really appreciated because we didn't really make it down to the beach. It was nice to be able to hear the sounds of the waves by just cracking the door. I was able to go to bed each night with the ocean sounds!! Now, that was heaven!!
Here is one final photo I took of a pretty sunset. I was going to use it for Krissy's "Looking Up" Hunt, but couldn't get it in on time.
When I returned home I thought I was going to be able to get a bit of rest, but, without getting into much detail, for safety reasons, Chelsea has had to get a P.F.A. and leave home for a bit. It has all been very, very hard on both of us and our friends and family. I have not gotten much sleep and my body has been in knots. I think that it has brought up old wounds and past traumas of what I went through as a young woman and wishing that I could take away her pain.
So, I am off here as I have pulled a muscle in my shoulder and typing really hurts. I hope to have my usual two to three entries a week now and a soon-to post "Up Close With Val". It is good to be back y'all!! xox
