I know it's been awhile since I've posted - life has been a little crazy these past few weeks. Shortly after our return from Florida, Chris' dad Stanley was admitted to the hospital as he had fallen down the stairs and injured his leg. While his leg is going to be okay, due to his age (88), they did a whole bunch of tests and determined that he has had two strokes in the last couple of months (one of which they think caused him to fall down the stairs) and also has a large aortic aneurysm in his chest. They can't operate on the aneurysm due to his age, but said they aren't sure how long he has had it, so he could possibly live another 10 years with it and still be relatively healthy. He is currently in the geriatric rehabilitation ward, and will be working to get his strength back over the next week or so and will be assessed to see if he can continue to live on his own, or if he needs homecare or even 24 hour a day care (which would mean him moving into a nursing home). It's been a bit of a waiting game these last few weeks - just waiting to see what happens, but still trying to plan as much as we can ahead of time so we're ready for whatever the doctors decide. Please keep him and Chris in your prayers, as this is a stressful time for the Judge family.

Besides that, I've been busy both at work and also at home trying to get my house ready for my sister's bridal shower on May 9th - it's amazing how messy 2 people and 1 dog can be! I don't really know what's happened to me over the last year. I used to be super organized and a total neat freak, and was always the type of person who had everything together and was on time for everything and had every single thing planned out. This past year though, I really think I've let myself go in several ways. Not only have I not really taken the best care of myself physically, but I've also let things pile up to the point where I don't even know where to start! I'm supposed to be cleaning the house right now, but am a little overwhelmed as I still have several rooms that need both cleaning and re-organizing!! Ahhhh!!!! I know that once I do it I'll feel a lot better, it's sometimes just the getting started that I find really hard. I'm glad I have the shower coming up as it means I have to clean and don't really have a choice in the matter.

Okay - on that note I think it's time to wrap this sucker up and go get started. On the agenda for this afternoon/evening: clean and reorganize my office, clean the upstairs bathroom, clean the kitchen, and get caught up with my laundry. Fun times! Pledge and Windex - here I come!

OMG Suzanne I am totally with you re the cleaning bit!! I have totally let this old house go ...it's disgusting!! And I only work part-time & I am SO disorganized. And I really don't care most of the time. But now I too am overwhelmed with it all.
I know once it is done I will feel better...BUT then it will time to do it all again!!

Maybe I will take the dogs for a walk...sigh.....
