I am very sorry I have not been able to connect with all of you!
My 91 year old mother fell, and I am in Wisconsin helping her recover.
The good news is, she is doing very well, and didn't break anything.
She had an infection and was hospitalized for several days, but she is very strong. She is highly independent, and still plays her violin.
The other good news is, I have had no desire to drink while I have been here.
I am actually very glad I am not drinking so I can be fully present to take care of her.
Such a gift to not be drinking.
My anxiety levels were off the roof before I came, as I was unsure if I could manage things by myself, as I am alone with her for a week. But I figured everything out with the help of my family and my mom.
On top of this, I am having problems and the doctors think it might be small kidney stones.
But I am not at home, so I am relying on urgent care.
And then, on top of that, my mother is moving to Idaho to live close to my brother, so we are cleaning out a house, packing, selling, and all of those fun things!
So things are not dull here.
Many of you might have read that Wisconsin, my home state, has the highest amount of drunken cities in the US. I am not surprised. We have bars on every corner of the state. You can read the article here.
I will try to catch up on some blogs, but I might not get to all of them until next week.
Thank you, Ginger (Groundhog Girl) for asking about my whereabouts!!
Love to all of you!
On Day 629,
