Facebook and Other Such Stuff

Hi everyone! Yes, another actual post. My mom is doing as well as can be expected, which means no scares. She lost her voice, however, and we're not quite sure what brought that about. Mom, is that such a bad thing? Just kidding. Before she completely lost it I talked to her on the phone and she sounded like Mickey Mouse. Hey, you have to find the humor where you can.
This dual Facebook/Blogger thing is quite interesting. Blogger allows, hmmm, how do I describe it...Blogger allows you to say more and post more. Facebook is like texting. It's quick and to the point without a lot of detail. They both have their advantages. I prefer Blogger, but what's nice about Facebook is it doesn't require a lot of thought. You can post something quickly which I would never do on Blogger.
It's warming up here and I'm so happy to be able to go outside in shorts. But it also means I have a TON of yardwork to do in the near future. But I will be outdoors and that is all that matters!
Spring is 2 days away!!!

Time To Update

Hello to everyone who is still following my blog! All 2 of you. Coffee and cookies are being passed around for the faithful. They are Girl Scout Cookies since we purchased about 15 boxes. PLEASE eat them or the will be thrown away.
I apologize for my absence, but in late January my mom was diagnosed with lymphoma, or cancer. The journey through this has been long and agonizing. While lymphoma is a cancer that is easy to cure, my mom has other health issues that have complicated it. Needless to say, it has been a long journey. I haven't blogged about it because it's a personal issue and while some of you may have wanted to know what is going on, I just didn't feel it was right to blog about it. It was depressing, and who wants to read about depressing news? And I just didn't have it in me to share.
My mom is responding well to chemotherapy. It has not been easy on her. She has lost her hair and she says she looks like a bald Leonard Nimoy for "Star Trek". I can't argue with her.
So we are dealing with this. Any prayers will be appreciated. Thank you for understanding my absence.
