Where have I been, Where am I going?




Valie, like his Mom, is in "deep thought"!

"....i have not blogged a word since mid February and when I realized that fact I was shocked.  It's just amazing how fast time flies when you are just going through the motions of livin' your life.

The explanation is quite simple and if the question is "Where have I been", the answer is that I have spent a large part of my days adjusting to the fact that my Mom is really gone.  And to complicate
the grieving process, a decision was made to move and while it was one thing to lose my Mom, it was quite another thing to make the decision to leave the family home on a permanent basis.  So, then came the enormous task of breaking up said family home, relocating to the home at the kennel in Connecticut and splitting my time in two towns as I continue to take care of my Mom's elderly sister.  In the interim, I managed to tear my knee's meniscus but fortunately, I opted for cortisone shots rather than jumping into surgery and since that's working, the answer to "Where am I going" is that now, Spring and Summer riding, my truest form of therapy, is still a reality. 

Anyway, I have lots to report and will do so in the next several days as now that I'm blog-typing again, I just realized how much I miss it!  So, with that said, I will see you soon and also, want to thank all of you that continued to send words of hope and support - you guys are the best!"
