Just a quick drop in to let you all know I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. This move has really taken its toll on all of us, physically and mentally. My body aches, I am overwhelmed looking at the boxes that still remain unpacked (even thought that seems to be all I do every single day since the move), I am aching to do art but finding my supplies is a slow process but I’m getting there.
Then, in the midst of all the uproar of the move, my dear husband has suffered a major breakdown. I never know how much to share here but in my effort to “keep it real”, he became suicidal Tuesday and I have spend days getting him therapy, taking him to doctors, spending time with him and, yes, crying my eyes out.
I don’t take his emotional meltdown personal, it is my belief (and his counselor believes the same way) that his work being so massively stressful coupled with the loss of our home to foreclosure and the move that it forced us into was just more than he could take all at once.
So, as you can see, my hands (not to mention my head and heart) have been beyond full lately. Things are getting better on every front but it’s slow going, all the way around.
Please keep us in your thoughts and know I will be back at it soon, sharing my art and life as I have always done here.
Much Peace & Love,
