Once again, I've been absent for half the year. At least anyone who's read my blog knows this happens much more often over the past few years-if any of those people ever even check back. I wouldn't blame them if they don't.

I go so long I forget my login information. It's downright sad.

So, where am I? Health issues still plague me, the latest round is high blood pressure which has laid me out for about two weeks. It seems to be under control again, I hope. I'm on a new NSAID which really seems to be helping with the arthritis and I'm hopeful I may be able to live a life more like a 34 year old and less like a 74 year old. A 74 year old with arthritis, as one of my grandmothers proves-there are many 70 and 80 year olds far more fit and mobile than myself!

I'm home with a night off, the boys have gone to Okoboji and my girls are at a sleepover. Going to the lake is a blessing for my husband and boy does he need it dealing with me, the kids, the house, and the job on his "regular time." The benefit is I get a bit of a break as well.

Things have been fairly rough on the health side of it, but hopefully I'll continue to see improvement, I'm really looking forward to it.

As a fun aside, we discovered a stray cat mama and five kittens in our shed. The kids want to keep all of them, the husband and I (and our two house cats) are not in agreement. But they are pretty darn cute. Now, I've got to figure out what to do with them all.
