Note to readers: Due to my work and caregiving schedules, I will be posting less frequently than usual.
I can't believe that I've been blogging for six whole years.
I started HERE as a way to pass the time while recovering from a car accident, caught the blogging bug, and migrated to HERE.
Several times, I considered quitting, but so far I haven't thrown in the towel.
Some days, I think that blogging is just another of those exercises in futility, particularly in this age of political and social turmoil. Other times, I'm certain that blogging helps me to hold onto my sanity.
Truth be told, if not for making friends on the web, I don't know what I'd have done when the burden of caregiving Mr. AOW, having recently arrived home from several weeks in the hospital and the nursing home, was a task I couldn't physically do by myself. Just as I arrived at the breaking point, The Merry Widow dropped her life in Florida to come up here to Virginia to bring me the necessary respite.
Thank you, dear readers, for the part that you play in my life. Whether we agree or disagree, I do enjoy our discussions.
A special thank you to Mustang, my first cyberfriend and ever supportive of my efforts.
Most of all, thank you, Warren, for designing and administrating Always On Watch, for designing my avatar, and for helping me with the multiple blogging and computer glitches that plague those of us who create blogs.
