Sorry for extended absence!

Blog Posted:3/10/2010 10:01:00 AM
Life has taken it's toll on me. Sorry I've been away and kept all of you hanging on the 9-11 contest. It has not been easy. I've been working 80+ hours a week and a divorce has made life fun. I should have the contest graded by this weekend. Just bear with me people. I've had some rough times.

    Nathan, it sounds like you've had a lot going on. We missed you and I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. Contest judging takes a back seat to work and personal issues. Stay strong. We're always here. Love, Carolyn

    Hi Nathan, It is great to see you here. Life can be so difficult sometimes. 80 Hours a week...that will really take a toll. Be careful. I had one daughter who did that for too long. I thought we were going to loose her. The ended up fining 2 leaky valves in her heart. Don't wear yourself out. (See you just got back and I'm doing that "Mothering" that my adult children used to complain about. LOL) Basically, I'm trying to say welcome back. Take care of yourself. And we love you! Smiles and love, Dane Ann

    ps. enjoyed reading your bio, Nathan. I like the name Nathan a lot. It was to be a son's name if I'd had another son! Sorry, life is hard for you now. I would die if I had to work 80 hours a week at my job. YUK!!!

    So sorry, Nathan, that these months have been so difficult for you, and that you have been through this sad hurdle. Take care of yourself, and know that hearts are with you as you rebuild and restore yourself. Best wishes and stay strong! Love, Carrie

    Welcome back Nathan! Sorry to hear that you have gone through a divorce and having worked so hard...eighty hours plus? You must be exhausted! But take heart...there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Keep that hope alive, and never give in to desperation! I will pray for your well-being and peace of mind. Peace and love, Andrew.
