We wear our hearts on our sleeves…you probably know a girl like me…

Greetings and salutations…

As usual I have not been great about keeping this blog super-duper current…oops.  I have been having a fairly tough go of things lately and sometimes when the going gets tough, the tough quit blogging…because the tough are actually wusses…

I am in the process of trying to get my mother into an Assisted Living program…I knew the process would suck…AND…it does….it’s a bunch of red-tape-bureaucratic-bullsh*t…but necessary…we will both be better for it…down the road when it is done and the transition has been made…

Jason is gone for awhile, he left 2 1/2 weeks ago and has been up Virginia…but now he is in England and then he heads off to an area which I cannot speak of…lol…he should be home around June 20th…so gone 8 weeks this time…this has been a tough time for me…I am good with him going, he has been gone before…many times over…but things are just so messy with my mom right now it would be good to be able to have some support…ah well…it is what it is…and hopefully by the time he gets home I will have it all sorted out…

I have been lining up some projects to do while he is gone…so I think I am going to paint our downstairs half bath this weekend…maybe…possibly…I was supposed to have a girls road-trip weekend but tragically the girl I was going with lost her husbands cousin to a suicide this weekend…they could use some prayers…they could really, really use some prayers…

Also, My stepmom was diagnosed with Breast cancer two weeks ago…it popped up very quickly and it is very aggressive.  They said that it has roots and tendrils and she will have to have a mastectomy.  She begins chemo today…more prayers please…I feel horrible for her…the day she found out she would have to have a mastectomy was ironically enough also the day that her approval letter for Gastric Bypass came in…she had been waiting anxiously for that letter…hoping that all would be approved and now, clearly it is on the back burner…I pray she regains enough of her health to beat the breast cancer and also be able to have the bypass…she is an insulin  dependent diabetic and the gastric bypass would cure that…it would make an amazing difference in her life… pray that all goes well with the chemo and subsequent surgeries please…she could sure use them…

In all of this craziness I have had amazing support around me…helping me to cope with all of this and lifting me up…I don’t thank my friends nearly enough…but it is so very appreciated…especially with Jason being gone.

The puppies are good…having Remy around has truly turned Daisy to the good side…now if I could just get Remy trained…lol…her “puppiness” knows no limits…

I had a great weekend spent with friends, hit some fun stores for interesting groceries…bought a cute top, went to a BBQ (Thanks Laurie Lou)…saw some more friends, Michelle and Amber and their partners and met some new people as well…and capped it off by seeing Iron Man II…busy, busy, busy…but good!

My youngest cousin Brian’s birthday is Tuesday and so I am going to My other cousin Brett’s for dinner that evening and then maybe out to dinner sometime later in the week with friends again…Trying to keep busy…

That is it for now…for the most part…

Love to you all, blessings and prayers…JustJil

I leave you all with a photo from our honeymoon in Mexico…

Far away...
