Looking back at last month, I didn’t blog very often. I was busy working with our ladies weekend retreat, attending a family gathering, and getting back into the grove of school. This month isn’t slowing down. Well, it is, but I am filling it back up. Here is what is going on currently with our lives.
Madelle is doing wonderfully, not perfect, but our good days far outweigh our bad days. I can take that. She is writing her own blog which I might post here in a couple of weeks. She is talking about her illness. She is beginning to feel mildly comfortable around people. She is recognizing her triggers and adjusting her life to fix them. She has cut a few people out of her life for the time being because they cause her so much hurt. Other people from her younger years, she is working at having them back in her life. All of this is a huge process. She is amazing me.
With her doing better and the drama down to a manageable level, I am working on my novel again. Yay!!! I think I am even going to go away for a weekend later in the month to have my own writer’s retreat. I am getting excited. On the first of the month, I started a project that I will go into more detail later this week or next week. It depends on timing.
What will this mean for my blog? To tell the truth, I am not all that sure. I will post how my writing life is progressing. And I will try to post the thoughts of a Norwegian Catholic Red Neck; that would be me. I always find that entertaining. I will also give updates on how the mental illness is going. Oh, I may write a little bit about my auto immune diseases. For now, I need to get back to my novel.
