So it was recently pointed out to me, albeit indirectly, that I need to get back on track. My recipes lack their behind the scenes stories, I don't seem to have the zest for photography and quite honestly I'm just plain exhausted. I have just needed the motivation to find the light at the end of the tunnel.
So for the update: We moved west after the investment house last September to help out hubby's elderly folks. FIL has back problems and MIL has Dementia/Alzheimers and were living alone at almost 90. We knew it would be a challenge, but didn't plan on them being so set in their ways. They told us they wanted to move back closer to the majority of the family, make changes to better their lives, etc... but we see after these past few months that is not really the case - as FIL says they are now in a "wait and see" mode. Sad, but true. So, we will be moving on soon to put our own lives back together. Hubby is dealing with job applications and military red tape and I'm just hanging on day to day as chief cook and bottle washer here until we know what is going on for sure. I'm looking forward to getting back to "normal" (whatever that is) in 2010.
