I’ve definitely been out of touch for a while. There are a couple of reasons, and one has probably made the other one less important.
First, the plugin I used for email subscriptions wasn’t working. In fact, it was taking down my administration site, making it impossible for me to do anything. But it also seemed a little futile to post something that couldn’t be communicated through email to all of you. I’ve been working with the developers for that plugin and they finally got it resolved!! I’m back in business.
Second, taking care of my dad has required much more attention. It was tough to find the time and even if I had a few minutes, I didn’t feel much like writing. Hopefully, we have him settled and I’ll find more time for my blog. Maybe even a more complete update on what we’ve been going through.
My dad has declined over the past few months and we found assisted living couldn’t provide the support he needs. As a result, we’ve moved him into a long-term care facility. He’s no longer in Ankeny but is closer to me now. That has its advantages. Not so much for my sister, but easier for me.
That’s all I’m writing today, but I will write more later, I promise. I’m also sorry that I haven’t kept up with all my fellow bloggers. I’d like to think that will change as well.
It’s good to be operational again!!
