I'm sorry I've been absent from these forums for so long. My mother has been hospitalized for some months now, and though I've had time to spend on the Internet, I haven't had much energy to actually write anything, share ideas, tell jokes, or anything like that. Mostly I'm feeling emotionally exhausted, and am being treated for depression.
If you pray, please pray for my mother. If you don't pray, throw a coin in a fountain or something. At the worst it can't hurt. She's actually making a slow recovery, and should be able to go home or into assisted living some time this month, so things are getting a little easier.
Thank you all,
