I am still here.
If you are a reader of this blog, but not one of my followers on Twitter, Google +, or the A-C page, and/or the Zilla page on facebook, you might think that I have dropped of the face of the Earth due to the slowdown of my posts here. I am posting today to let you know that I am still here.
The past few weeks have been a little tougher than usual, my oldest child started school full time and I was hit hard by all of the things that I was required by her school to purchase. The extra expense really threw me off my very small budget and as a consequence, I have had to forgo filling half of the prescriptions that I need to manage my medical condition and also have gone hungry more often than I would prefer to make sure that the rest of the family has enough to eat. This has left me in a great deal of physical pain and also just completely exhausted - both physically and mentally. Additionally, adjusting to a new routine is not easy, especially for my little boy who is still home with me and does not like change of any kind. I have suffered from an inability to focus the way I would like to in order to be able to write coherently at any great length.
I apologize for disappointing my readers but assure you that things should return to normal here soon. A few people have expressed interest in my custom made blog ads; if and when they decide to follow through and I collect payment, I can get the medication that I need to better manage my chronic pain from nerve damage and have enough left over to even feed myself in addition to the rest of the family. Two very kind women hit my tip jar recently which allowed me to get milk and diapers for my youngest & bread for the oldest so she could take sandwiches to school for lunch, and I was even able to get meat to make a few dinners. I am very grateful for the help.
In another week or so, things will be back to what is 'normal' for us, struggling as always but not penniless, and we should by then be adjusted to our new routine as well. The Boy is already starting to settle in and not complaining as much about how he misses his big sister, so I will try to get back to blogging more in the very near future. I thank you for your patience and support.
