State of the Blog: There will be no posts.

Nov 28, 2011

As some of you know, my Dad has been battling cancer for the last few years.  This weekend, we had a bit of a scare, and spent the whole of Thanksgiving and after in the hospital.  He’s out of the hospital, and up and around, now, but it was all a bit terrifying.

As a result, I didn’t finish the posts for this week.  I’m hopeful that I will complete some of them on my airline flight today.  Check back tomorrow for new posts.  I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving, and that you responsibly enjoy today’s Cyber Monday deals.

xoxo

    Keeping you and your Dad in my prayers.

    Remember to stay positive 99% of the time but give yourself the permission and time to cry it out in that last 1. And when all else fails: get dressed up, have a (light) cocktail, and go to the range. It works for me every time.
