Catching up

Hi!  I can't believe it's been three months since I posted here.  
     We've made many trips to see our new grandson and one trip to the Midwest in February to introduce him to his Great Grandmas, his Aunt and various other relatives.  He met at least 20 people in one weekend, poor kid!
     In late March, we made another trip to the Midwest to help our younger daughter who was in a deep depression. She's now on medication and doing well, but it was a close thing - very scary!
     While we were there we offered to move Lash's nearly-90 year old mother to a safer condo - safer in the sense of easier access in bad weather.  She accepted, so we had to begin renovations on the condo we own.  We have been putting these renovations off for over 2 years - everything about it was at least 20 years out of date, so it's proving to be a big job.  I plan to get everything done by June, but that means staying in the condo during the renovation and we do not have internet access there.  I go to an internet coffeeshop every few days but that allows just time enough to answer email and do some business - no time for reading or writing blog entries.
     Meanwhile, Lash's mom has had a heart attack and been in the hospital for about 10 days.  She may not even be able to move, so that decision is still pending.  She's recovering, but weak.
     Lash is now back home in the mountains, preparing to start a new job in June (for 5-6 months).  The job is in the city where our grandson lives, so we're very happy about it.  I'm joining him at home for a few days this weekend and then heading back to the condo for more cleaning, painting, wallpaper removal, etc.
     Spanking is on the back burner right now, but we still look for chances - like being in the same State!  I'm really looking forward to this weekend!!
     I'll try to catch up on the nearly 400 blog entries listed in Google Reader when I get a chance.  I miss reading about everyone's experiences!  Happy Spanking, Everyone!
