My apologies

Since I don't have a digital camera anymore, and since my photo class is finished now, I haven't been posting anything here. I'm sorry! Hopefully a new digital camera will be in my future (I'm not sure how, exactly, but maybe santa or the tooth fairy or mother's day? .... nah.) In the meantime, I will try to post something, anything, so I won't completely lose my readership!

Here's an update on my life: 3 stresses.

My last exam is today, and I'm finished with this semester of school. I give the experience two thumbs up! I'm not sure what the future holds in that regard though. The economy isn't being kind to our family right now, so I may have to postpone further school while I get a job with a paycheck attached. I'm not sure how a full-time mom returns to the workforce successfully, but it looks like I'm going to have to give it a whirl.

PFC Grayson is home on leave right now, but will be shipping off in a week to San Diego, his permanent duty station. There are a lot of bittersweet feelings rolling around in me right now, but I just can't give voice to them.

My mom's cancer is active again. She's had breast cancer, uterine cancer, and non-Hodgkins lymphoma for over 25 years now. Somehow she's managed to live a great life nevertheless. Though she's had several surgeries she's never taken radiation or chemotherapy, and she's not about to do it now, although the cancer is now inoperable. She's doing a nutritional thing while she contemplates another non-chemo type of therapy.

Hey, Beth ~ I hope Santa drops a digital camera in your lap soon so we can see your world again. Sorry about the stress in your life; some of it definitely resonates with me. Regarding a paycheck, you're multi-talented and creative...I know something interesting is in the works for you!

Glad to hear something of what's going on in your life. Seems like you're in the same odd stage of life I am - between "becoming adult" children and aging parents. Hope that you do get a digital camera soon!

I've enjoyed seeing what you're learning in photography. Thanks for sharing it.

Glad G. is going to be stationed here in San Diego. Can't ask for nicer weather! Where is he going to be living???? You may e-mail me if you don't want to post it here.

If he needs help with anything or if you come to visit, let me know. :)

Hi Beth! I have you on Google Reader so I always know when you update your blog, even if it's been a while. Sounds like you have so much on your plate. I'll be praying for you and your family. I hope a camera is in your (near) future.
