Hiatus from the blog: Unplugged

The thing about a hiatus is that it's often unplanned. I don't usually go this long without posting/blogging about something that's on my mind, but what's on my mind right now has caused my hiatus.

My great grandmother is 99 years old, but you'd never know it. She's amazingly intelligent, extremely well-traveled, sweet but witty, and does the newspaper crossword in pen. There's an infinite number of things I love about her, which is why it's so difficult to suddenly have another not so lovable quality added to her list: Cancer. Again.

A few years ago it was breast cancer. Now it's lung cancer.

Writing that "c" word is difficult for me. makes me want to kick and scream and throw a tantrum like a two year old. It makes me want to ball up my fists and punch something.

I'll be unplugged for awhile longer. Keep this amazing lady in your thoughts.
