Taking a Break

Well, this is definitely not what I wanted my next post to be, but I dont' know any other way right now. 

Hubby & I visited the Neurosurgeon in Toronto on Monday (Apr 18) and the tumor is growing.  He is scheduled for surgery on May 10th.  Even though he'll be awake, it is day surgery, so I'll be taking him to a hotel that evening and then flying home on the 11th.  Assuming all goes well, the Surgeon told him he could go fishing on the 15th of May for Walleye opener!  Isn't it incredible the things they can do with the brain!

That being said, the stress of working a full-time job and dealing with hubby's illness and trying to give my children extra attention, something has to give.  Right now, it is my blog and really I've been letting it fall apart for a while now.  I haven't even been in my craft room since my last card was made.  That being said, I don't plan on not crafting, just taking a break from self-inflicted guilt that comes every Sunday when I know I don't have a card to post. 

I am going to take a break until the end of June 2011 at which point I will re-evaluate what I can reasonbly do in the 24 hours that I have to work with.  If I get any cards up before then, well, bonus!  If not, I won't be feeling any pressure.  I know that you all will understand.

I think you are very wise to take a step back. Your family must come first at this very difficult time and you don't need any added pressure on yourself. I hope everything goes well for your hubby and that your live return to normal really soon. I'm thinking of you.
