Back in May I took a break for several weeks to deal with the initial and critical issues following the unexpected passing of my Father. When I returned to The Hideaway, I managed to convince my Mother to return with me and she has spent the time equally staying here with me and across town with my sister. By all accounts, she has a had a tremendous and joyous time, relaxing, sleeping, freely laughing and most importantly, baking.
She settled most of the outstanding issues that have arisen from Dad's passing and now feels it is time to return to the home she and Dad shared for the past 20 years to deal with the rest of the issues and start her new life.
Driving her back out next week, visiting friends and family along the way, and will be devoting all of my time and energy towards helping her in whatever capacity she needs assistance. This is an open-ended hiatus and I will not be publishing blogs during my time out in Pineville, MO, though there is one more previously-written post in the pipeline, scheduled for Monday.
Have my trusty notebooks and I will continue writing - my sanity depends on it - so I will have loads of ideas upon my eventual return.
I will have email and text capabilities so feel free to reach out, comment or suggest ideas. One of the first orders of business will be to get Internet and cable service for the house.
I'll be back!
