First of all, thanks so much for all of your concern, support, and prayers on behalf of my mom and our family. They are all appreciated! Mother has been moved to a long-term acute care facility in my sister's city so that she can continue to get the medical care that she needs without being alone. It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride for all of us, but I think they've settled into some kind of routine (my sister and my mom, with the help of one of mom's cousins and my sister's family), and I've been able to return home. I'll probably go back there during the summer to see Mom and give my sister a break. The doctors say Mom can recover from all she's been through, but we have no idea how long it will take or what it will look like.
I've been home almost two weeks. Sorry I'm just now posting, but it's taken me this long to recover from the sheer emotional and physical exhaustion and get my balance back. I'm just now settling back into some kind of routine. In fact, I'm spending a little time in my studio being creative tonight, for the first time in weeks! Oh, I've been in the studio, looking around or playing on the computer, but tonight was the first time I really even wanted to be creative! I've even dreamed -- literally! -- about making art, but just haven't found the energy to do it.
I went to Michael's and JoAnn this afternoon and bought a few new supplies, so I've got a little inspiration! I've got Pandora Radio playing in the background, a fountain drink on my desk and some chocolate. I'm ready to rock-n-roll! I've glued some background paper down and I'm letting it dry. I don't know if I'll start painting tonight, or wait until tomorrow, but at least I've made a start!
I've decided to start the Mixed Grill Favorites Podcast back up in July. I'll record and edit during June, and start broadcasting again on Wednesday, 07 July, 2010. Let me know if there is anyone in particular you'd like me to interview and I'll be happy to approach them! Also, if you have any questions you'd like me to ask my guests, just leave a comment or email me and I'll be happy to work your question in to the next interview -- and give you credit, with a link back to your blog!
Thanks again for all your support. I'm eager get on with things!
