Tomorrow morning our forecast is for a wintry mix that should make my morning quite possibly a bit treacherous. Honestly, I'd rather have out-and-out snow than to deal with sleet and such. Thankfully, the roads should still be too warm from our 50+ degree days this week to cause us any risks. We got our leaves raked and bagged ahead of this weather (lest we be dealing with an icy, sodden mess on the lawn). We've also eaten enough the last couple of days to put a nice layer of blubber on ourselves. Oy, I am so ready to get back to normal next week! (Please remind me of that if I begin to complain!)
Thank you all for your supportive comments yesterday. There are no easy answers to the problem, but I know quite well that I cannot fix another person. I can't even fix myself.
I may be slowing down quite a bit over the next month as to blogging and commenting simply because I'm so far behind on some things I have to do. Don't think that I've fallen off the face of the earth; it's just necessary for me to do some catching up before I become buried under the work that's piling up. I've turned into a writer who only writes in two places: work and blogs. That's a bad place for a writer to be. I've got to find some balance, and I will. But let's face it, you folks are hard for me to stay away from, so I won't. I'll be around, but you won't see me commenting on each and every one of your delightful posts. I'll comment as much as I can without eating up all my free time, though. It's so easy for me to look up and realize that 3-4 hours have passed. Yikes!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Feel festive, and stay warm!
Peace - D
