Things are looking up

I am very happy to report that Frisky is nearly back to normal! Even the vet was surprised that she recovered from partial paralysis to near normalcy. I think part of it is that she is a very active cat, tearing across the yard and up a tree in no time flat.

This summer has been a very bad one for me - my girls have been so busy that for the first 6 weeks of summer I was never home during the day for more than about 30 minutes at a time between driving one to and from summer school and her job and driving both to music lessons, etc. I was never available to go to the beach or have lunch with a friend.... Lots of frustration, tears, hot flashes, and very little time to blog or create. I need that creating time in order to be happy. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel! School starts in 2-3 weeks, so I will have more time and my girls are going to various camps soon so I may actually create something (or just play)! Yay!

Thanks so much for all your support and emails with respect to Frisky - they are so appreciated. Warm fuzzies from blogland are so nice...

I'm so glad that Frisky is recovering!
And I fully understand your frustration not to have time for yourself. I went through that period not so long ago and I'm relieved it is over and that my daughters are on their own now. The nice thing is that they too do remember that time, and now they fully appreciate the efforts I made to make their life nice, and they say so now :-)

What great news about Frisky!
I hope you feel much better soon too! I really understand your frustration and I also cannot wait until my children go back to school, so I can get some more time for myself - to rest and restore my own balance.

Such good cat news! I know your daughter is happy now, too. I hope Frisky has learned something from this experience!

I hope some sewing time is coming, even before school starts. I know it's hard to keep the balance when you are constantly being emptied. Hot flashes! Yuck! They do end, mostly, eventually. That's all the hope I can provide. =)

Hurray for Frisky! And yes, I was also where you are not so very long ago. It's hard to hang onto your sanity when life is that hectic, but it does eventually end (or at least suspend for a short time while you catch your breath). Hang in there!
