The Endless Winter

I have returned to 24/7 service at my parent's as of last Friday and am limited to internet access once again. Frankly, had I been blogging daily since then, the content would have been primarily a stream-of-consciousness rant about the ever-growing despair of eldercare and the frustrations of dealing with cold bureacracy. The continuing gray of this endless winter has been a perfect backdrop to the whole sordid situation.

There have been some minor victories....we have some home healthcare in play and while it has been mostly railed against by my mother they have created some inroads. However, everything continues to be a daily, draining battle.

My own blog is exhausting to read even for me as I have less and less humor and food moments to write about. I look forward to returning to the blog with relish when I again have something to look forward to.

Until then, stay tuned...

You will be home soon my little Greggles. Until then I will do my best to make this CONFOUNDED winter in WV as painless as possible. What's mine is yours buddy. You KNOW that. You have been a rock for your parents. Your resilience and ever present caring attitude in the face of chaos and yes, insanity, amazes and inspires me. Its that indomitable spirit that comes from the purest of souls. Soon you will be back where you belong now...in your home, with Keith and you will be back to blogging about all things food. However, if you use the phrase "light and refreshing" I will come to KC and beat you about the face and head LOL! You know what I mean. LOVE YOU BROTHER!

Sending all the good vibes and warth east your way... with dreams of chocolate martinis and all the food that's bad for you upon your return. Loads of carbs and comfort. Spring is coming. I can taste it. Jeff and I love you dearly, friend.

Sorry things are still so stressful for you. You're in my thoughts and prayers. And just know that we do really miss you back in KC and will be glad to see you when you get to come back.

Been there...I remember all too well thinking "I want my LIFE back!" It will happen, this will pass, and life will return to something like normal...so sorry you're having to go through all this. It's very difficult to be creative under these circumstance...but do remember to take care of yourself, too.

I can't wait to have you back. I miss you next to me everyday. I wish I was there helping you through this tough time and I am counting the days until we are back together. You have been so strong in helping figure out the care for your parents and know that you love them very much. Hang in there...
