I’ve been missing for months on blogging. What has been happening in my life? Working at what I love best-assessing young children’s communication abilities, and as of November 8th–emergency room visits with my sweet husband, Bill and three surgeries to follow. We are definitely on the up-side of all of this and so thankful for his improving health. It is a slow journey, and therefore teaches us patience. In my usual style, after getting 20 of our 72-year-old windows replaced, I dove into replacing window curtains, etc.,my fast action resulting in nothing but total chaos, until I persisted slowly and got it right. Today is a milestone, as BG wanted to cook chili again. My chef is back, though I now have much more respect for his time and effort and will gladly go to the store! It looks simply delicious and I am SO HUMBLED by his healthy presence with me on this cold, Texas night!
