Sorry there has been no activity for the past… however long… My grandma is passing and I just haven’t had the energy or brain for reading or posting. Papa Neko lost his mom in March of this year (I wasn’t close to her but it hurt to see my dad hurt so much) and now Momma Neko doesn’t think her mom (we are pretty close) will last through Sunday… So I am here on the east coast and Grandma is in Eastern Washington. You know what a nursing degree is good for when you live on opposite sides of the country? Telling you how long someone has to live. Every time I get hope that she is doing better she gets worse and the good things my mom tells me just show me how ready she is to pass on.
So we are still here, but… I will try to post at least once a week. And a huge thank you to you guys for sticking around. It means a lot to me that people are still checking out the blog.
I hope May is treating you well. Sorry for the quiet blog but I was out of town for a business conference and spent my free time exploring the wonderful city of New Orleans since I’d never been there.
I thought I’d share a couple of the highlights with everyone, it probably won’t the prettiest of posts but if you want to see more photos you can follow me on Instagram. Continue reading
