Hi all, it’s been a long time since I posted on a Sunday but I’m testing out posting on my iPad ( hope it’ll look ok) so I thought I’d update everyone on things around here. I haven’t been posting much at all. I think I got a little burned out with blogging. I’m surprised to even be saying that since I didn’t think it would ever happen. It felt as though reading and blogging had become a chore and I don’t want that. I decided to step away for a bit and it seems to have worked. I feel as though I might be getting the blogging bug back a bit. I doubt I’ll ever post daily as I used to but at least a couple of times a week.
As for things here Sammy is doing ok. He’s still got his health issues and now it looks like we may have some issues with his adrenal glands. The vet will be doing some further testing and we’ll go from there. From what he’s told me it can be one of two things – either an issue we can control with meds or a tumor that we can’t so I’m praying it will be something we can control with meds. Other than that he’s his usual pain in the butt but I love him like that.
As for me I’m doing ok. I’ve been seeing someone and I’m really happy. More on that at another time. I’ve got to have surgery on my wrists which I’m not looking forward to but it’ll have to be done. My mom just had back surgery at the end of January but I don’t see it doing her much good because she still refuses to walk around. Without being mobile the surgery won’t help. The issues with her mood and meanness haven’t changed any and I don’t think they will. It’s sad really to have a family and not want to love them and have a relationship. So that’s the last few months in a nutshell.
I hope all of you have been doing well. For those of you that have become my friends in the last few years sorry I’ve not been around to see how you’re doing and I hope all of you are well. There are a few blogs I’d like to keep up with and I’ll be sorting that out in the next few days. Hopefully in the next few weeks you’ll be seeing a few more posts from me. Miss you all!
I know what you mean about blogging. I’m still plugging away at it but I’m not sure why. I’m so happy to hear you’re seeing someone! Good luck with your surgery and your family.

Nice to see you back! I think a break every now and then does us all good. Hope all goes well with your surgery 🙂
I’m glad to see a post from you because I was wondering how things were going. And I agree that ‘blogging breaks’ are a good thing for many of us. I certainly used them this last year and will this year too if I feel the urge to do so. Sorry about your surgery, but hope it helps and how nice to hear that you are seeing someone. Mainly, I just hope you are well and happy. Take care and good luck with Sammy’s issues. 🙂
So great to hear from you. I hope things turn out for Sammy! Praying for a successful surgery. Sorry to hear about your mom.
Nice to hear how you’re doing, Dar. Sometimes you just need a break from blogging. Life gets a little crazy and at least blogging allows you to step away for a while. I understand that because I had to for a bit when life happened. Hope everything turns out well for Sammy and for your surgery! Sorry to hear about your mom. I had a step-grandmother like that.
Thank you for the update! I hope you and Sammy will have a good month, health-wise and otherwise. 🙂
Dar, glad to see you post and update us. A break is just what the doctor ordered at times to feel refreshed. Hope everything works out well for you, Sammy and Mom.

Sometimes you just have to step back and take a breather. I’ve had to learn what I could reasonably do once I began working full-time. And I found my pace after I mourned the fact I was no longer as involved in posting on my blog like I used to, but I’m enjoying it and that’s what counts. When reading and blogging become a chore then it brings on stress. Happy to hear things are looking up for you!
Thinking of you!! Take care of yourself!!
Oh, Dar! I’m sorry that things with Sammy are a bit scary right now. Even more that life is so tough with your mom. I’m glad to hear you are seeing someone who is making you happy!
