I think that I won't be able to even consider keeping up with a blog. It's not that I don't write a lot - I do that - but I find that I am responding to posts - or updating the blog for a class I teach - not creating new topics. So until I figure out how to work that into my day, I think I will just read and respond to posts and blogs as they appear on my monitor.
But - to close the circle - an update on my mom - she is doing pretty well! Knee replacement has healed up completely. And for the immediate future, she is doing great on her own - lots of friends - music - piano students - church organ on Sundays. Being 3000 miles away is difficult, but for right now - manageable. I'm sure there will be another fork in the road at some point, but now we both have resources at hand.
