There and Back Again


Sorry for my abrupt absence from the blogosphere last week, but had to drop everything to drive to Manitoba. My Mom was in the hospital with pneumonia. She's now back at the nursing home so I've returned to Edmonton. Just got in last night and I'm exhausted. Bear with me please -- blogging may be sporadic for the next little while.

Sandy said...

Sorry to hear about your Mom, hope she's better now and you've had a chance to rest up. Travel is hard, and add to that the stress of a sick loved one and that's a double wammy.
