Still Here, Kind Of…
Hey everyone. Just thought I would update you since I haven't been posting. I've been here, in that I read what everyone's up to pretty much every day and I have left comments here and there, just haven't been posting.
Things have been quiet with my daughter. I'm still hanging in there with the tough love and have not given in. She has emailed me and said she has been clean for a couple of weeks. I still haven't responded though. Trust me when I say that tough love is as difficult if not more so on the parent than it is on the child. I do miss her.
Over the last several weeks I wrote a 30,000 word memoir that is about my mother's life as well as parts of mine. I finished the first writing and it is in the hands of several people who have already finished or are in the process of reading and critiquing it. I am awaiting responses from a couple more of those people before I begin to edit it. The entire process has pretty much consumed me, but then that was the original intention in the first place.
I'll be back soon though and hopefully with some happy news and fun stuff to write about. Until then, I'm reading what you write and it keeps my spirits up.
