Rebuilding the shipwreck


*blows dust off*

Hello?

I've missed you.  I didn't mean to be gone for so long, but I think you'll understand why in a moment.

It was a lot of things, a culmination of things. Heavy and hard things.  You all know about my son with the mystery chronic disease.  He's still the same -- no better, not much worse.  That alone was more than enough to deal with.  Except that it wasn't.  I also had two of my daughters move out into their own apartments. . . .  you guys, this flying-the-nest thing IS HARD.  Then, I faced a serious challenge with another one of my sons.  It's one that had been going on for a long, long time, but I thought I could handle it.

And I was wrong.
