It's been so long since I wrote on this blog that the technology has probably already changed on me!! Well, with the spring sabbatical and my shoulder surgery and being unable to write for so long, it put a crimp in my blogging. Then all the changes with my parents occurring.....and then being soooo sick for ALL of April and then Dan's dad dying, it's been an unusual and emotion-packed year. Now I go back to teaching in a few weeks, but probably will go through even more transitions. We have no more children at home anymore, so that's something to get used to. It's nice at times, but often more just weird or overly quiet. Especially since Monk isn't around even to call. I will get back to putting pertinent things in here soon.This post will be my entry back.
