This has been a hard post to write.
Some of you may have noticed I haven't been by as much lately.
I have been on the e-mail with a few of you though.
This time of year is always hard on me, so my post may be a little slower than normal for a while.

I am working on a screenplay story.
My Uncle died on Thanksgiving.
I am trying to figure out my mothers affairs, as she has dementia, or alzheimers,
and everything is crazy here right now.
so don't lose patience with me, I did however post a blog on the plainolebob site though.
Merry Cghristmas today and tomorrow.

The problem with being a writer, my friend, is that life gets in the way. The saving grace is that the stuff that gets in the way often ends up in our stories -- the happy ones, the sad ones, and all those in between ones.

We'll see you when you come up for air.

Sarah said...

Lily Robinson said...

So sorry to hear about your uncle. I prayed for you to have peace. I'm dealing with the dementia problem on both fronts... my mom and my MIL. Know you're not alone. We'll be waiting for you...

I know that we have just been talking about this, Bob, but I know how you feel, and my thoughts as well as many others are with you right now.
Just you take care, look after yourself and we'll chat again soon.
Big hugs, my friend.

No need to ever apologize for your absence my friend. Although I miss you, I understand how life takes precedence. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Please take care.

My prayers are with you and your family Bob. God bless and may he give you the strength you need.

John said...

Oh Bob, I'm so sorry to hear you lost your Uncle on Thanksgiving. And I can only imagine what it is like dealing with your Mother. I have a feeling I am going to find that out in my own family soon though.

Hey, I won't lose patience with you and I know it's a hard time of the year for you. Take care of yourself and work on that screenplay story. Check in with blogs, when you get a chance, but feel no pressure to do so daily.

Take care and be in touch.

I am addicted to your blog and I think it is fair enough you apologize to me when you go missing even with a very much valid reason...
I am sorry that you are going through this tough period.
Hope things get better and you will be back to posting here more often.
Love and hugs

Marla said...

Hey Bob ~ I definatey understand what you are going through and will keep you in my prayers. One day at a time, Bob. One day at a time.

Sorry about your uncle & mom. Take your time. BC's comment on being a writer makes a lot of sense!

Hi Bob,
My comments are behind but I'm trying to catch up. I've had company most of the week. Holidays can be complex for lots of reasons. Personally January is my favorite month because there is nothing but talk of newness and change and I like that. Should blog about it someday. Take care. Always miss you. Rae Sandra
