I know it already seems like I’ve been on a hiatus, but I wanted to let you all know what’s going on in my life.  I’ve heard after turning 40 it’s the best years of your life.  Well, so far since I’ve turned 40 my luck has gone the other way.  I had my account hacked, and they used over $800 to buy gift cards. That was okay, not really, but I got over it by getting new bank cards and changing all my passwords so that I now have no clue what my passwords are for pretty much all sites.  Next, someone broke into my husband’s truck and used the garage door opener to open our garage and steal quite a bit out of our garage including my purse and my son’s wallet that was in my car.  So now we feel unsafe since they have our id’s and have the keys to one of our cars.  We changed the locks and garage door codes but still it’s left us uneasy. Along with that, we had to cancel bank cards, close accounts, and open new ones.  Today, I spent the day in the E.R. because my husband started to have seizures for no apparent reason. I can’t take any more stress. I may very well have to find a new job now since my husband can’t drive himself for the next 6 months and he is the main worker at our family business where he needs to drive.  I’ve had other more personal things go on that I am not yet ready to deal with or tell people about but I’m done. I can’t take anymore. All this has happened in a little over a month. I may lose my mind if anything else happens. I wanted to let you know that I am not done writing but my life and my head are not in the game of writing right now, and I don’t know when it will.  Thank you to my loyal followers and friends. Your support means a lot, and I hate to let you down.  I’ll be back.

Thank you for your time.

  20. Oh sweetie, I’m so sorry. My hubby started having seizures for no apparent reason either years ago. So I totally get it. The driving, the worried thoughts. But we’ve figured it out. It takes time, but it can be resolved very quickly. It gets better, I swear! We can talk later about specifics if you want. I love your writing but sometimes RL demands more attention. I adore you, please let me know if I can do anything at all to help. *Hugs*

  21. I’m so sorry for you and your family! That’s a ton of stress. Never mind us, we understand. You concentrate on your family and feeling better. Just remember that we care and we all wish you and yours well and safe. *HUGS*

  22. Take your time to get your world on an even keel, then when your ready come back we will be here to read your lovely stories.

  25. That’s way more bad stuff than I would wish on my worst enemy. Having a break in is really destabilizing. And your husband – I have a friend that went through this recently and it’s tough to not drive when you are so used to being independent. That is a pile of bad stuff that shouldn’t happen over 20 years. I hope you have good real life support – and we are all here too! big virtual hugs for you – Susan

  26. So sorry you’re going through so much especially all at once. I wish your husband a full and speedy recovery and I hope life has started turning around for you and your family. I wish you the best, I’m sending positive energy your way. Take care.
