After what I thought was a reasonably good visit to my parents in August, disaster struck. Not them; me. My husband has moved out and I am now living in our home with my 18-year-old son who has started university and our cat. Our "trial separation" is only supposed to last for three months, but it has been distressing, disruptive and - on top of everything else I'm dealing with - just too much to keep up here.
Now, it's time for me to tend to my own nest and take care of myself. If you want to follow those efforts you can visit me at my new blog Breathing Space.
I hope to return here soon, but we'll see how things go! For now, my parents are doing relatively well, their caregiver is still there, and my sister and I while not on the best of terms are at least speaking.
Take care and best wishes for a Happy 2013.
