This month bites. Truly.
Sometimes I feel like we're drowning in a moneyless sea of ruined economy. Although "sometimes" should be "daily". For those that don't know, Mr. Artsy Chaos is a contractor. A residential home building contractor. Since there is about zero going on in the residential home building market, that equals about zero opportunity for a residential home building contractor. When you've sunk 20+ years of your life into a career that basically doesn't exist anymore, well.... no one is interested in what you can bring to the table. Hence, the drowning.
Since the first of the month, my mother has been in the hospital having and recovering from open heart surgery. This is her second open heart surgery, the first she had at age 45. It's been a scary few weeks. We nearly lost her in surgery this time as they couldn't stop the bleeding during the 10+ hour operation. For 3 days after surgery she was unresponsive and on a ventilator. Even when she woke up, she didn't recognize anyone and seemed confused. We were all very worried to say the least. She is now on the mend, but has a ways to go. I'm so thankful she came out of it.
So again I say, this month bites. Here's to hoping a month comes soon that doesn't.
