Still Kicking

Hi out there in blogging land! I haven't been posting for quite some time, and frankly I hadn't even been following other blogs regularly for some time. Those of you who are ill will understand. Sometimes life gets in the way. Mom has been very ill and that has taken most of my "healthy" hours in a day. I recently started to follow some great blogs again, but this time more in the crafting/DIY/home decor/food genres. I have begun crafting again after a long hiatus and was looking for inspiration and fellowship with other crafters. I think I was also looking for a break from being identified as chronically ill. Nothing has changed in that regard, if anything it has gotten worse, but I am choosing to focus on other things. At some point, hopefully in the not too distant future, I plan to start another blog that will be more along those lines. I do not intend to hide my illness, just not make it the focus of the blog as it was here. I will keep this blog, but I won't be posting as regularly as I was when I was active with it. I intend to keep in touch with my chronically ill blogging friends, I just need to express my creative side in a different way right now and I hope you will understand. I also wanted to write this post for those of you who may have gotten my blog information when I commented at your blog and came to follow. Feel free to follow, or feel free to wait and follow when I start the new blog up. Thanks! I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to read my posts,comment or even keep me in their prayers - it means more than I can ever express!

Hi Maureen! Sounds like you have a lot on your plate these days! I don't know the answer to you blog issue....I would say contact blogger, but I never have any luck with that. I usually just google my problem and go from there. I do hope you do a craft blog...I would love to see what you like to do. Do you still have your cats? I would love to have cats, but my husband is allergic. Enjoy your day and please let me know what you decide to do if you start another blog.

I have loved you dropping by to visit me at Happy Hour Projects so I wanted to come by and see what you blog about here. I'm so sorry to hear about your challenges... a lot of people take health for granted. Keep me posted if you do start up another blog. Meanwhile, my prayers to you. You sound like a strong woman, hang in there!

Maureen, taking care of someone else when you have your own issues is quite the challenge and takes so much effort and time. Kudos to you for rising to the challenge. Don't focus on what you can't do--keep the focus on what you CAN do! Keep your chin up~
