I'm a Self-Confessed Bad Blogger

I admit it. I can't remember to update this durn thing to save my life. Who am I kidding. I sit here thinking, I've got to update that blog thingy. And then I stare at the naked screen and wonder, What the hell am I gonna put on it??? There can't be too many of you interested in my kids or personal life, but that's what you get today. Sorry. And the MySpace thing??? What in the hell is it for really? I have one, just have no clue what I'm supposed to do with it :-)

So we've had some personal issues with my Mother in Law lately. On Christmas Day we were literally waiting for her to pass away. She was at end stage of heart disease, brought on by a virus in her heart that she's probably had lying dormant in her for years. Ultimately she needs a new heart but because she's diabetic, her kidneys, liver, and intestines aren't functioning, and she has gastro issues, she's not even close to being a candidate for one. The next day, she'd lived through the night but things still looked bad. Each day was an emotional roller coaster. We had to then start thinking about Hospice or a full time nurse since my FIL can't handle everything at home alone, so far away from his kids. Today, she is going home after suffering through a bout of Staph infection. And what's even more amazing is that Hospice will no longer accept her! Talk about a miraculous turn around.

So, I guess, we'll have the X-mas we missed with our in-laws sometime soon. It's bound to bring her spirits up...though she insists she feels wonderful. I still don't think anyone's said to her, "Do you know they told us not to leave if we wanted to be here when it happened on Christmas Day?"

Bad Blogger...bad bad bad! *giggle*

Too many blogs too little time, I'm glad you don't updated it too often, keep it fresh by keeping it spread out, lol.

WOW on all the coming up books AM, that is just fantastic and I cannot wait to read them.

On the MIL issue... sounds like a blessing although it sucks that you had to go through that over the holidays. Dang that woman sure has a strong will to live, which is fantastic for her. :)

Hugs babe. :)

I have a difficult time keeping up with my blog and trying to figure out what to talk about too.

I'm keeping your family and MIL in my thoughts and prayers!

I know what you mean.. besides, it doesn't seem like there is enough time to do everything that you want to do in a single day.

Congrats on the upcoming release of Checkmate! I can't wait to read it...

I have a blog and i'm not good at remembering to post there either. It would of helped me remember all the books I'd read by looking at the blog, but I instead was depending on late in th evening remembering LOL.

Hugs on the family issue. Its hard. My mom was the opposite tho, and wanted to be in hosptial, not at home when it got tough.
