I've gotten a lot of PMs asking me how things are going, and I can't tell you how much it means to me that you're still thinking of me after all this time. The truth? Some things good, some not. My friend's mom who had bone cancer passed away. Very sad, as I'd been friends with her since we were in 4th grade and she and her mom have always been very close. :(

Good news - my grandfather that had cancer is fine, but my grandmother (his wife) was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, and she's opted not to treat it, so there's that and a whole host of other health issues going on with more friends and family. It feels like it's never ending!

But hang tight - I'm picking this story back up in a few weeks. I just need to go through and read it to get myself up to speed so I can write some more. I don't even remember where I left off.

Again, thank you all so much for your kind words and concern. You have no idea how much it means to me! :)

I hope you all are doing well and weren't too disheartened by the VA movie. ;)
