It feels really good to be working again!
A great big THANK YOU to everybody who has sent well wishes and hugs and cards and words of encouragement! I am truly overwhelmed by the goodness of it all. Overwhelmed in a good way, not in the what-the-hell-am-I-doing-I-can't-possibly-do-this sort of way that keeps rearing it's ugly head. It really means so much. I've read and re-read every word. Thank you, thank you , thank you!
Lulu and I are slowly settling in to a new routine. I got myself a little travel trailer that I'm well on my way to turning into a home of my own. I'm currently parked at my folks' house while I try to find my feet. I am so grateful for them! They live out in the country, and Lulu's loving the mole-chasing opportunities. I was feeling so down the other morning when Lulu came bounding over with a present for me, a dead mole that she quite proudly dropped at my feet. She looked up at me with such unconstrained exuberance that I just had to laugh. I know, poor mole, but it made me giggle nonetheless. I think country life suits us just fine.
