Good grief. I literally disappeared off the face of the earth...or at least, blog land. I have been sick. Pretty darn sick. For more than a year. It's been hard just getting one foot in front of the other. It still is. Now, I'm not dying or anything. But I have a myriad of physical things going on that all add up to not much of a life, outside of doing the bare minimum (that being work.)

My house is beyond disaster; my child is beside herself if I actually cook anything. Mostly, I don't. It is all I can do to exist. It would be so easy to be totally despondent and discouraged. But I can honestly say I am hanging in there. It helps that I have a new primary care dr. who actually LISTENS (imagine that?!?!?) and he has hooked me up with a host of specialists, all who are trying their darndest to figure out what in the world is going on with me, and how they can fix it! :) I have: a hematologist, a gastroenterologist, a cardiologist, a pulmanologist, and an orthopedic on my team. I'm thinking SOMEBODY has got to figure out the enigma of ME.

Meanwhile...I will try not to be a total stranger here. For the past few days I have actually been able to do a few things, like pay bills online, and do some laundry, without being totally wiped out for days on end. This is good. There's hope. Please pray.

OH...and on a totally COOL note. My treasure ShaoXi was accepted at Ballet Arizona in Phoenix AZ. We are BOTH headed to AZ for five weeks this summer. COOL BEANS!!! You GO, baby girl!!!
