Just a quick note to readers to let you know that my mother has been hospitalized with a very serious, potentially life-threatening condition, which had gone undetected until discovered earlier this week. I was at the the hospital all day Tuesday and most of Monday, and will likely be with her the remainder of the week. Obviously, writing about frugal living has taken a back seat in what seems most important at the moment.
If I am a little slow to respond to emails, or approve comments, or join in discussions I hope you’ll understand. I’ll post another update towards the end of the week. In the interim, I have a great guest post scheduled for Thursday and an update to our square foot garden tentatively scheduled for Friday. After that, I can’t make any promises, but know that I will get back to cranking out posts when the time is right.
Finally, someone asked the other day what I liked most about writing this blog. I’d like to change my answer. The thing I most like is the sense of community that is developed over time with readers and other bloggers. Since announcing this news in a couple forums, and to my network friends and colleagues, I’ve received a ton of well-wishes and prayers for my family. The most amazing thing is that I’ve never even met 99.9% of the people who read this blog in person. Thanks to all of you who have kept my family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
