Hi everyone.... wanted to let you all know that I am home, safe and sound, after a long, tiring and emotional 8 weeks in Regina. It's been a rough 2010 so far and I am hopeful that the rest of the year plays out a little easier for my sisters and their families and my family and I.
Thank you to everyone who has sent cards of condolence and to those who have sent donations to the Hospice in Mom's memory. We are all truly appreciative of your generosity. It is heartwarming to learn just how much Mom meant to so many of you.
It was very difficult to leave Regina on Saturday... I was so happy to be heading home to my husband, sons, friends and life but it was so hard to know that I was leaving my childhood home behind. The house was sold in about 24 hours and the new owners took possession at noon on October 4th. That house was bought by my parents 47 years ago... they were the original owners of the house. It's so strange to think that it's someone elses' house now.
I still can't believe that both of my parents are now gone.... I miss them so much....
I hope life will return to normal soon.... at least a new normal.
For now I am playing catch up with my life, trying to remember where I left what, trying to figure out the new fall schedules for the kids and their activities. Bruce will be back to work at the end of the week (thanks for playing Mr. Mom for the last two months.... and all the other times I was in Regina, babe!) and I will be starting on a new adventure on Tuesday I think.... more about that later!
I hope to spend some time creating in the next few days.... I have some new toys to play with!! Mostly Nestabilities, but still!! LOL!
Thank you all for being so patient through the last few months.... I have hated to neglect my blog and my creativity, but it was necessary. I hope that the creative energy begins to flow again....
