Chatter away, friends!

Where's Robin?

on 04/03/2013

Hey Wizzley Family -

I know you have much more to do than to wonder where I am...I just wanted to touch base and say, though I miss you all, I'm neck deep in life/visiting and caring for my stepfather (not the picture of health in many ways) through the end of April. Have been here since Feb 7th...really challenging/exhausting.

I'm scraping by finding time just to get some articles posted and keep my blogs "fresh" - even if not my best work to date. That said, I just have very limited free time without interruption.

The good news?

Well...those Glacier Park Montana mountains will finally be giving us a big hug at the end of May. We left (thinking short term) in October 2011. But my mom passed away unexpectedly in January 2012 and I never got to go home. My off the grid treks are calling my name. Fingers crossed I can be back and "into the wild" in a few months...

Still check the forum but just cannot chime in much, if at all. Do know I miss you all!!

Robin, we love it when you touch base. Caregiving is challenging as many of us on here know. Hang in there.

I agree with Brenda - we always enjoy hearing from you, Robin and Jim.

Life continues to happen, and, compared to some of our real-world challenges, Wizzley is just a sweet little side show.

Our fond thoughts are with you, dear friends.  Smile

{{{{hugs}}}}    Just remember to take time for yourself too in the middle of all of this.  It's all too easy to keep up the challenging/exhausting until you crash.   Even an hour snatched here and there will make the difference.

The trek sounds amazing.  Bigfoot country?

Take care!

I have been thinking about you lately more so than ever, your advice and words of encouragement have been very helpful, thanks!

It's good to hear from you, my most positive thoughts are with you and all things going on in your life.

Good Morning Everyone!

Thanks for your sweet messages...each and every one of ya!

And Jo...the Pacific Northwest is a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings. When my dad was building his cabin years ago, off the grid, he and his now wife were certain they heard and smelled something around the cabin unlike anything before...not even a grizzly. His mind is open to it!

Take care, all of you...we're doing ok and looking forward to recharging our batteries (finally) when we get home!

Hi Robin!

The Bigfoot fellas in BC are waving to the Bigfoot fellas in Montana. They say they've missed you lots but family is the most important and you're doing what you're supposed to be doing.

Love to you two.

Hang in there! I was telling my husband about your recent doings the other day and encouraging him to read some of your wizzes once he'd done with Jo's and mine.

Life does have a nasty habit of getting in the way at times:

'Life? Don't talk to me about LIFE!' (Marvin the Paranoid Android)

Family is always important and the Bigfoot will wait for you - after all, I hear they have families too. I typeset a film script a while ago about a bunch of explorers who went to the Himalayas to track the Yeti there. It was half Planet of the Apes and half Indiana Jones but it would make a cracking adventure film!

Hope to be hearing more from you whenever you can manage.

Described by one of my clients as 'a literary grammarian', writing, researching and reading are requirements for sanity, at least this side of the keyboard.

I'm glad you checked in Robin - believe it or not I do wonder when I haven't heard from people around here.

But it's none of my business - and most likely all of you have busier lives than mine.  I hope you do get to Montana as you plan.
