Yes, I'm still alive!

Just so busy that I had to "let it go" for awhile. Not that I didn't care, but I had to deal with some stuff IRL and time just got away from me.
Let's see, where did I leave off? Oh, ok! Let's see if I can recap without writing "War & Peace"- the "Fine" years lol!
Mom- she's done with Chemo, and started her Radiation treatments. She's also started back to work, though on a limited basis ( 20 hours a week to start). She's got her energy back pretty well, and things are getting back to normal in her world. Which is great since things in MY world have been a little crazy.
Me, weeeelllll, let's just say there have been some bumps. At work. Having to do with the fact that there are a few of my co-workers that apparently don't like me. I was told by my boss that this is a fact. So I just go in- do my work, and leave. The "Youngsters" have taken over, and I guess they don't like working w/ the "old lady". Tough! I'm not leaving, and they ( at least 2 of them) will be in the next year or so ( due to college, career changes, etc.) So I'll just wait them out. Besides, they may not like working with me- but when the shit hits the fan- who do they call???? Yup, yours truly. So I can't be that big a PITA for them right? I've been around enough to know that they will go- and I'll still be there. Sucks for them as far as I'm concerned.
The one thing that has been upseting this spring has been Becky. We found out that she was having MAJOR difficulties in a couple of her courses this semester. Failing as a matter of fact. So after several phone conversations, and a meeting with her guidance counsolor, we decided to pull her out of school. Which means no graduation this June. Make no mistake- SHE WILL GRADUATE! But she is taking 2 classes online at "virtual school" this summer, and then will go back to HS in the fall to complete her electives. Which means she will graduate in the fall. I look back and see that I had wondered why she was taking some pretty tough classes, but I didn't say anything. Now I wish I had- we may have been able to avoid this. But she's doing pretty good with her online stuff, so perhaps this is for the best. Her grades would have sucked big time if she'd stayed in school. This way her last semester is virtually *erased* and she's starting from scratch. Should help her get into college at any rate.
So that's the short version of my spring. Not the best one I've had, but there certainly been worse! And I plan on getting back into this blog again.
I've missed you all! And I'm sorry if I worried you. I promise (cue the music!) that I won't do that again.
Peace and Love, KC
P.S.- Jude, I'll e-mail you my #, so you have it if you need ;-)
P.S.S.- If any of you are hearing about the fires that are raging in my town- they are south and east of me. So we are safe. But my Pharmacist "J"'s house is right in the middle of them. So send prayers that she and her family are safe- PLEASE!!!
