So, I rarely get truly personal on this blog. That's kind of the point. I allude to stuff that's personal, but most of the time I choose not to broadcast a lot of the circumstances that are going on around me (non-funny stuff, that is). If you know me well, then you hear about it from me. And if you don't know me well, then remind me why are you reading this?

Additionally, I joke about how no one ever comments. Okay, four people comment and it's because it make them. But I mean, I write. Why don't you?

But for once, I'm going to get personal, and it's okay if you all don't comment. Instead, I hope you pray.

So, someone stepped on a crack and has broken my mother's back. Starting tomorrow (Thursday), I'm taking sick leave from work and will be in Birmingham until the 22nd to give round-the-clock care for her as she begins recovery after what the surgeon described as his "least favorite surgery of them all." Comforting, right? The surgery is tomorrow.

In short, I am really scared. It's a serious surgery, one that will totally debilitate her for a while, and I am not sure I am emotionally ready for it. I'm having to be a daughter and a husband, it seems, and it's wearing me down. Add to all of that me suddenly being faced with a few personal and professional decisions to make, and I'm all over the place.

So, I'll have a lot of time while I'm playing nurse at mom's house to update blogs, but if I'm not funny then bear with me.

It's because I'm emotional and tired and trying to figure a few things out.

What a week it's been!


  1. Good luck today. Will be thinking of you guys.

    Shopping my book today. Hopefully we'll have more positive things to discuss when you get back. Say maybe our favorite place up the street? I hear they have great Texas toast:-)

    Doing research yesterday on agencies, guess what client Lewis has? War turkey!

  2. Hope all is well. I'll be praying for you and your mother.
