NEGLECT

Dear Blog Friends,
I have badly neglected my poor blog. I surely hope to remedy this. I once again have free time on my hands. The girls came to live with me and it was a whirlwind on my life. I was tired but blessedly happy with having them here with me daily. We had many arguments and struggles adjusting to each other again. We had TONS of fun and laughed a lot. It was Wonderful connecting with each other again. My youngest made some great progress in catching up her reading level. We had a routine of going to the library once a week at least. I got them both bitten by the reading bug. I am super proud of that! Most of my family was surprised with how well I adjusted and jumped in handling life with them. I didn't back off or stop even when I was my most tired or frustrated with things. When the school year ended the girls went back to their Dad, in California for a visit in the Summer. The youngest was up in the air about not coming back. She sorely missed her sisters and grandparents there. The older one was adamant that she would be returning. They even left some really important stuff behind. When the time came for their return flight, they told me that they were staying. I don't know what transpired there for them to change their minds. I am sorely disappointed and depressed about this development. Mostly I worry about them finishing school and getting a good education. It seems my ex has been a bit lax in that department with them. Well enough of laying my heart and mind bare for all to see on this matter. Anyways, now you see I have time once again on my hands and the ability to revive my Blog and my old online friendships.
