We All Fall Down

The whole family needed more than tissues in the past month.  Kids were in hospital for nearly a week and the bug struck us adults soon after.  Recovery time has been longer than expected, especially for creatures no longer at their peak.  In other words, I am here trying to see if there are any remaining readers of this blog after my long absence.

The photo above was taken on the road a few days ago with a camera phone.  Couldn’t let it just be ignored by all the other drivers.  🙂  I thought it was both grim and hopeful at the same time.  Much like my frame of mind these days.

I am waiting for some news, hopefully good.
