I am also spent. We all are. You know how it is when a crisis winds down and you find yourself unable to move, peep or pontificate?
That is where I am at. Between a bed and a sleep place.
So I will take this time to say thank you. Thanks to each and every single one of you who reads the blog and comments, reads the blog and doesn’t, reads the blog on Facebook or reads the blog when it’s shared.
And to each of you who have reached out and made me feel packed in support, I thank you. I really truly felt your love, advice and shared experiences coming at me at the speed of blog. And I took each comment to heart.
We are moving to the next phase, the one that opts us out of all the previous confusion and pain and sends us toward the optimistic future. And we have every reason for optimism.
Mom is coming home.
Barbara: Yay, Deb!!! Not that you’re spent, of course, but that your mom is going home. And that the village made sure she could get there. Wow. So impressive.
Okay, I have to make a call-out to our blog peeps now. I would like to send over some yummy easy food for Deb’s parents to heat up, but really have no awesome “casserole” recipes. I cook on order, in the moment. I go—yes, every day—to the store and get my supplies. I’m not and have never been good at the plan-ahead. Hence my dearth of good meals that can be made ahead and frozen. Maybe portioned-up for the 2-person meal.
If any of you have any great recipes you don’t mind sharing, I would be so very grateful!!
