It’s been 6 months since I last posted on this blog, but a lot’s going in my life so I decided to give a quick update about everything that’s happened.
Earlier this year, my grandmother passed away. It was sad for our family, but she lived a long life at 91 years-old and we have lots of cherished memories of her.
After her death, I had to step up and take care of things. My mom and I moved into my grandmother’s house three months ago. I’m still trying to unpack all our stuff, and I’ve been going through the boxes in the basement, and sorting out what needs to be kept and what needs to go. I’ve also had to take on a lot more chores now that we’re living in a house. I take care of the yard work, laundry, and take care of the pets.
It’s been a little bit stressful the past few months, but there were some good moments.
As you may be aware, I had a huge fear of driving, which kept me from getting behind the wheel. But I decided it was time to overcome my fear and I enlisted the help of our family friend Teresa. She took me out for driving lessons and within a matter of weeks, I’d gotten over my fear. I do admit sometimes I still get nervous, but now I’m a road warrior and you can’t keep me out of the car.
Aside from driving, I’m also getting back into my work routine. I’ve been working on some new stories, plus I got a new job as a writer for a soap opera site.
Well, that’s all I have to share for now. I promise I’ll do a better job of keeping the blog updated in the future. I’ve got a couple of blog posts in mind, so stay tuned for the new posts.
